It is exceptional restaurant. W e enjoyed every meal there. They are not big but high class. Service was discrete but always there when needed. We had a voucher so I cant say much about the prices. All together very good experience.

We came for my partner's birthday and everything was perfect! From the food to the service, the entire evening was amazing. I strongly recommend the courgette flower stuffed with lobster... This was absolute perfection

Had a most enjoyable evening at Dax recently. A graduation celebration, for a table of 7. The food was outstanding, particularly the 'foie gras' starter, and the chocolate souffle desert to die for. The service was attentive without being overwhelming, the staff obliging and gave...More
