Fodor's Review

Under the eye of flamboyant owner Jean-Pierre Xiradakis, cuisine de terroir is served up at this classic restaurant (the name means "kettle") on one of Bordeaux's oldest streets. Dried herbs hang from the ceiling, a Provençal grandfather clock ticks off the minutes, and an antique fireplace sports a grill bearing sizzling morsels of duck and chicken. Like the room itself, the menu aspires to nostalgie, and it succeeds. On the same street (No. 34) is the owner's fetching—and cheaper—Bar Cave de la Monnaie. You can also dine or shop at his épicerie, Le Comestible (No. 3), which is lined with bistro tables and jars of foie gras, cassoulet, and other regional sundries. Copies of this business-savvy chef's southwestern cuisine cookbook are sold at the épicerie.
