You'll find this lively wine bar/restaurant/wine shop/deli on the road out of town beyond Paul Valéry University, heading towards Castelnau near the zoo. Copious light wood décor creates a snazzy yet simple effect. They stock an extensive range of mostly small grower wines from the region. The food is hearty and rustic: varied charcuterie dishes served on wooden slabs, nice cheeses, steaks, duck and pork and grilled seafood. Live piano music almost every night and jazz on Fridays. Wine tastings and courses: see website.
