I had 4-course meal which was fabulous. Every dish was perfectly cooked and tasty, started with a small porion of appetizer from the restaurant then the first course was served which I picked ravioli and not disappointed at all, really nice. The main dish was fish and dessert I picked something chocolate, rich and fine. Really appreciated!

We were struggling to find someone seating at 8 and kind of stumbled in to Croc Loup. They were gracious enough to find us a table without a reservation on a Friday night. The tables filled up and the couple next to us commented that it was usually difficult to get in. The appetizer was a light mousse with some... More

This is hands down one of the top restaurants in Bordeaux. Incredible experience and the woman that runs the place is extremely friendly. I walked in there with one of my friends, both in our mid 20s and we were welcomed with a big smile like we were any of the other diners there in their 60s dressed to the... More

We made a dinner reservation for a Saturday in late May. We had the cuttlefish ravioli appetizer, duck breast as our mains, and the chocolate mousse Napolean. The ravioli was very delicious while the duck breast was a bit dry. The chocolate mousse was the highlight of the meal - perfection! A must for any chocolate lover. If the food... More

We arrived in Bordeaux late Saturday afternoon so struggled to find somewhere to reserve for dinner. We tried a few restaurants and fortunately this one was not booked out. The restaurant, set down a side street off the main shopping street, is cosy and only seats around 24 people. There was only one waitress - who did a very good... More

Just had a fantastic meal here tonight. Lovely small restaurant full of local patrons. We have eaten in a couple of Brasseries in Bordeaux that were ok but this meal was different class for virtually the same money. Four excellent courses for €32, unbeatable value and skillful cooking. Cannot reccomend highly enough, many thanks for an unforgettable meal.

After being in France for a month; and trying a lot of restaurants- we think this has been the best meal that we have had! We only ordered entree and main; but it was so good especially my entree of ravioli definitely the Best Ravioli I have ever eaten. Definitely a must !

I ate here two years ago with a group of guys and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. This may in part have been due to beer goggles. I returned to Bordeaux with my wife and wished to share the experience with her. We arrived at 19:30 and were first in. We chose a table at the window and settled in to... More
