Dax is a French restaurant. The atmosphere is very relaxed, the staff very polite & the food was very good although I would recommend that you order a side dish as well because the portions are not very big.

Went here for a work dinner mid week - the place was rammed. Great food, great service and buzzing atmosphere. I wouldn't normally choose french but this was great. Would go back and recommend. Not cheap though!. 250 for 3, and not much alcohol.
