We found this cafe to be quite busy as its next to the pier. The service was slow and poor. Would try to avoid here at peak times or be prepared to wait.

Had a bite here yesterday. We had to wait forever before we could be seated. At first we sat in the tent area which apperently is only created to avoid the smoking ban. Being non-smokers we moved inside ASAP. The tent was in fact quite cold. After about 30 minutes we could order our meal. It didn't took very long... More

The location and the view is great . You can have a drink or dinner and relax overlooking the city. Do not expect something more than a simple dinner.

This is a very cool looking place. However, last Saturday we decided to have a last drink here before going home. It took them over 20 minutes to acknowledge us and finally when the girl to the order it took about another 30 minutes for the drinks to come to the table. Probably our own fault for not leaving when... More

Situated by the riverside walkway, this was a nice ideal spot to have a drink and a bit of people-watching on a warm day. Nice clean and stylish bar. We didn't eat. Cocktails were good.

Had dinner at this riverside restaurant, the location is great. We had not booked and were very lucky to get a table in this extremely busy establishment. The staff were attentive and helpful from the moment we arrived. The menu was great and advice was given. The food was delicious and plentiful. Have got no problem in recommending this restaurant.

Waited 20 minutes for the server to swing by, then had our drinks within the minute. Prices are fair for the location. Wanted some tapas and were told that they only take orders until 11pm (it was almost midnight). People next to us got their food that very moment...the server told us that they ordered before the deadline. Slow has... More

The thing to do on a Sunday in Bordeaux is enjoy the fantastic long sweeping open promenade along the Garonne. Not only gives you the opportunity to really appreciate the splendid Bordeaux architecture but conveniently situated half the way along you will find this lovely cafe with shaded tables and a cool beer where you can sit and watch the...

We walked along the river and accidentally ran into this cafe. After drinks we learned that here we can eat. We did not regret. Grilled meat was very good and tuna steak was excellent. The waiters were discreet.
