    Really good food, rich and interesting tastes. A little different. Informal and friendly atmosphere. Great relation of quality and price, very recommendable.

    Don’t be put off by the exterior! Tiny restaurant - lovely character. Helene worked really hard on a busy night and was a terrific host. Tapas style menu and on Sundays Helene basically makes the choices, taking into account what you prefer/ dietary needs etc (and what she happens to have in the kitchen. Thoroughly recommend a visit

    A delightful wine bar with delicious small plates and nice selection of local wines. Great value for the money. Cozy atmosphere, we were there on a very warm evening and air conditioning would have been a plus. Our hostess was very helpful and enthusiastic. Would definitely return.

    This restaurant was quite quirky and the food was inventive. The atmosphere was really welcoming and you felt at home. We really enjoyed this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone. The owner is sensational having many roles and accomplishing them all successfully.

    The four of us loved the warm, authentic atmosphere and the food was exceptionally delicious. The tomato bisque and sardine biscuit especially stood out in the appetizer selections. The Graves wine was superb and not available outside France. The dessert selections pleased all ranging from the homemade cherry tart to the iconic canales, a special cake of the region. The bill was a happy suprise, much less than expected. Great value!

    Hélène (the owner) is phenomenal and has made of this place a very cosy, homely, cave. The lightning is soft, the wine list extensive and the food a perfect accompaniment. I simply loved it. Very affordable, with superb service with a smile. Next time I’m in Bordeaux, I’ll be back. Thanks for a great evening

    I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Every bite of the delicious dégustation menu is made by Helen. The lentil salad, the tapenade, the seafood terrine... my mouth is watering remembering it now. And Helen is absolutely lovely - the quintessential hostess. We felt like friends having dinner, wine and a chat in her home.

    Where to start really, the ambience first and foremost was fantastic, felt like we were in someone’s cosy living room rather than a restaurant. Very quiet and peaceful setting where we could talk without needing to shout at one another to be heard as sometimes happens in busy restaurants. The food was simple and portions were perfect and fresh; not overly large but more of a tapas style which was great, allowed us to try more things on the menu. Recommend getting a bottle of wine and adding the cheese platter to your experience as well as dessert. Very wonderful staff that were friendly and that ensured everything on the menu was well explained. Highly recommend and would definitely visit again :)
