Respond to Review of CLOSED: Viva Las Vegans
Review: Being in Bordeaux for a conference, I decided to invite two colleagues to go to Viva las Vegans. Once we showed up, people were talking to us in French. Granted, we were looking a bit lost in there, but eventually someone realised to talk to us in English. However, the only thing he/she said was "we are full". This was kinda strange, since there were plenty of free seats. So, summing up, the staff was very unfriendly and we left without eating anything there. Please, guys, don't you want to sell food? So learn a few phrases of English and try to welcome tourists/foreigners as well. If you speak French, try Viva Las Vegans. It's still open and maybe you will find some free seats. If not, try a sandwich at Le Chouquet's around the corner: that's where we ate.

I really do not understand people who write a bad comment on a restaurant they've never visited? If you travel to France, it is NORMAL that people talk to you in french, doesn't it? So a polit person will try to learn at least couple of words in french instead of taking the attitude of english-speakers self-importance. Moreover, the restaurant can sometimes sell everything they cooked before you are coming and have some free seats.

Why do you travel around at all if you're not willing to adapt a bit?
