When all the restaurants around are empty this one has a 30min queue to enter. We were lucky not to wait and had a very nice breakfast, but otherwise, I wouldn't bother. There is a lot of options on the menu and the most of...More

Would never return to Karl. The service was impeccably slow even compared to French standard. The eggs arrived uncooked and the waiter forgot the drinks. There were 7 of us at a table. He was uninterested in seating us never mind serving us. Will never...More

I had lunch in Karl a number of years ago while visiting Bordeaux from Paris (where I lived); I thought the place was fantastic! The food was good and the atmosphere was lovely. As such, when I visited Bordeaux this weekend with a crowd of...More
