A really interesting restaurant with excellent food, a big choice of wine and really friendly service. Definitely worth going to but go early or make a booking - we were there on a Monday evening and it was full by eight o'clock.

Everything about this restaurant is special...the look and feel of the place, the menu, the quality of the food, the service and the amazing wine cellar! We had a lovely meal with an excellent Syrah recommended by the host.

One of the best restaurants in Pau! High quality dishes and a huge variety of wines from the "apero" to dessert! Possibilty to buy wine to bring home! You must reserve a few weeks in advance.
