Le Davoli was my first dinner in Bordeaux. Here was the menu:
The price was very reasonable for the quality of food. The meal started with some amuse bouche. They were all outstanding.
The fish was excellent. I remember being wowed by this dish:
Everything up to this point was fantastic. Solid flavors and cooking. Until…..the duck. I found the duck to be overcooked slightly, tough and lacking flavor. Its too bad because the meal was going so perfect until this point.
The desserts and petit fours:
Service was very good. The dining room was a bit warmer than I like, but I find that in Europe, the average temperature of a dining room (and almost everywhere for that matter) will be higher than in North America or Asia. Europeans are fine without A/C or have it on very low. Even at a 3 Michelin Star restaurant in London, I remember complaining about the room temp and they told me they would “open some windows”.
The food was excellent except for the last savory dish. 8/10
