La Salamandre made us think of this old French proverb-- it was the absolute demonstration of the above principle. Having had a great visit and tasting at Pichon Baron(separate review), we look for a place to have lunch while waiting for your next Chateau appointment in the afternoon. Pauillac looks completely like a ghost town: everything is closed, no people... More

We stop in between our chateaux visits for a quick lunch break. There were a quite nice variety of main courses. We had clam soup, roasted salmon, a mushroom veloute, a really great juicy cheeceburger with blue cheese and surprisingly good desserts. You can taste several wines from the region by glass. Service was excellent.

We stopped here for lunch while wine tasting around the rive gauche. We had nice pizzas, the waitresses were very friendly.

An excellent meal and service with a very good menu and comprehensive Medoc wine list. The food for all 4 of us exceeded our expectations and the owners and staff were very friendly and helpfull.

When we arrived here mid-afternoon, the restaurant would only serve beer, soft drinks and ice cream. The server was inattentive, rude and seemed more interested in her friends than the customers. The manager was similarly unhelpful.

The restaurant was about half full when we sat down. We selected 2 menus "du jour".. One of us had a confit de canard and the other the fish filet which as they came from the menu of the day should have been easy to produce. The confit was so so but the fish which should have been hot was... More

Rather disappointing. Lovely riverside setting on the main strip at Pauillac. We had 2 of the veal and sadly both were far too gristly to be edible. Another of us had pizza, but it had been made with French cheese rather the usual Italian and tasted quite bizarre. Waiters didn't enquire why we had eaten so little of the mains.... More

We were riding bicycles through the area and decided to stop in for lunch. For 11.50 euros each we got an entree - nice lentil soup and the plat du jour - risotto with fish, mussels and squid. Both were prepared well and decent portions. The waitress was friendly and tried to guide us with our broken French. After reading... More

Visited with my son. We eat here twice during out stay. Food was very good on both occasions and they served a trio of crime brûlée which was so good I ordered it both nights. The wine list was reasonably priced and we tasted some fine bottles without breaking the bank - you can also buy wine to take away.

The restaurant are the best - and biggest in Pauillac. But manage to keep good service and good food even in rush hours on event days. Good placement on the quai with view over the piers and Gironde.
