This little restaurant offers the best deal you could find in Bordeaux. Well known as a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin guide, this incredible place offers a lunch 3-course menu for 19 Euros!!! Unbelievable! The food is delicious, authentic and very creative. The service is impeccable and the short wine list offers the best deal you could dream of. We had a bottle of Chateau Sociando-Mallet 2008 for 79 Euros!
Incredible deal with unforgettable food! A perfect foie gras to start with, followed by a filet pur Satay and, for desert, a luscious white chocolate fruit mousse.
DO NOT visit Bordeaux without stopping there!

We enjoyed a decent meal here, celebrating both my husband’s birthday and our honeymoon. They remembered to honor his special day with a candle in the dessert as mentioned in an email from a while back which was very thoughtful. The food was good. We saw previous reviews noting that they could be flexible for vegetarians, but this wasn’t the case in our experience. Luckily we are pescatarian and do eat fish so we were able to order of the standard 3 course menu with minor modification, but we were not able to do the tasting). Not a big deal if you don’t have restrictions. You could tell they wanted us to have a good experience though and that’s nice.

We recently returned to this beautiful city as it has everything we love, very friendly people and in particular amazing food ! Like last year we booked Racines for the first night of our holiday, as we were so impressed we booked it again for this year.
Restaurants can change but thankfully Racines again blew us away by the quality and the standard of the food served to us during our sublime tasting menu along with a very reasonably priced bottle of Red Bordeaux wine.

Daniel the lovely Scottish Chef, takes time to talk to his guests and to go through the dishes with them. The restaurant is small and cosy but oozes ambience. While we were there the atmosphere was buzzing and there was the lovely sounds of people chatting and evidently enjoying the wonderful full being served to them. For us this is the ultimate dining experience !

We would like to thank Daniel and his wonderful team for yet again an amazing evening.
