We went to this restaurant after looking at its many positive reviews on TripAdvisor and we're not disappointed! My boyfriend and I agreed that it is the best food we have had in France and possibly if any food! The waitress was very kind and...More

L'Escorial is a little hidden gem of a restaurant. We made a reservation online on Fork via Trip. Used gps and still had a little hard time finding the restaurant. It was not very conspicuously situated, and a little tucked away from the main route....More

This was the place I visited in Bordeaux where the service was as nice as expected, food is pretty good l, you can go for set menu as well and wine list ok. Location is central and the place inside quite nice.

Charming, overworked young waitresses, so service rather erratic (eg given wrong starter, had to wait ages for cheese). Starter (Ceviche) good, main course (boeuf) poor. Wines very expensive as no picher available at weekends. 26€ for the formule. Wouldn't be tempted to return.

The bavette was what most steak frites dream of becoming. Caprese carpaccio and coffee cream dessert really nice as well. Some elements a bit on salty side for my personal taste, but ingredients combine nicely and most will not think plates oversalted. Nice ambience and...More
