    • Here is told a fair and absolute story. An experience full of emotion.

      Chef Zian Bodou draws his inspiration from the very heart of the Pyrenees, its land and its traditions.

      Each detail is shaped, each story is chiseled. The cuisine blossoms through carefully selected ingredients, bursting with nature and cultivated with passion by the region's producers.

      Zian composes his dishes like a concerto of emotions inspired by the green hillsides, the iodine of the sea and the centuries-old history of the region.


      ZIAN BODOU

      Zian Bodou is originally from Pau. He obtained his professional baccalaureate in the high school of Morlaas. In his first year, at the age of 17, he already started to collect distinctions: Best Apprentice of the Atlantic Pyrenees and New Aquitaine, finalist in the television competition Objectif top chef.

      After a stint in Michel Guérad's prestigious kitchens and then in Philippe Etchebest's, he created with his father, "La Table d'Hôte du Vic-Bilh" in a manor house dating from 1671, where he was quickly noticed.

      Today, back in Pau, he opens the restaurant "OBSIDIENNE Zian Bodou", with the objective of becoming one of the best restaurant in France.


      "THE AUTUMN/WINTER COLLECTION"

      • Lunch: Menu " HORIZON essentiel

      Horizon essentiel, is the menu proposed by the chef at lunch. Drawing inspiration from recipes, some of which date back 250 years, that have made the great hours of gastronomy, Zian Bodou celebrates the rich French culinary heritage. A playful ode to heritage cuisine, the kind that crosses fashions and centuries while remaining profoundly modern.


      • Dinner: "Extreme Horizon" Menu

      Extreme Horizon is the gastronomic menu proposed by the chef for dinner. From high altitude lakes to vineyards, passing by the ocean and its spray, Zian Bodou plays a mischievous repertoire combining naturalness, poetry and creativity. This walk, made up of seven stops, celebrates the richness and biodiversity that we are privileged to have in our region, and that we want you to discover through our dishes.


      "THE MEAL AS A STORY, THE TABLE AS A SCENE."

      The service must be in unison with the kitchen.

      Between the guests and the dining room, the connivance must be established instantly. Then, everything becomes simpler, everything becomes possible. The meal at each table is organized according to the desires of the eaters, in complete freedom.

      Conversations start, people share, they find again this sense of conviviality which is so essential for a successful meal. The service must go to the essential: the absolute sense of hospitality to which is added the energy of youth.

    This was an interesting one! A very young chef, Zian Bodou, trying to make a mark with an original approach. We had the tasting menu which goes about recreating famous perfumes around seasonal food. The dishes were ok and around them where some of the perfumes stuff, some of which were ok, others not so much to my taste. The service was on point and very friendly, the restaurant is also nicely decorated. As for the whole experience, we had a good time discussing the oddities of some of the flavors, it was a good evening! However it was on the expensive side. Not a pace I would be going often but probably worth visiting once every now and then.

    Very nice experience. The dishes were excellent, as was the service: the waitresses translated the menu into English for friends we took along We were able to have a vegan menu by booking in advance and the dishes were just as beautiful (and good) as their normal version Flavor-based dishes are a real experience and the taste remains even after the meal Excellent value for money, without any hesitation Perhaps one of the best restaurants in Pau. Congratulations to the chef and his team :)
