Unless you know it's there, or cross towards the river from Place de la Bourse you could miss this wonderful sight! And if you're enjoying a stroll along the Quai admiring the river and don't go up the steps to the "Miroir d'eau" you will also miss out. There are SO many beautiful things to see in Bordeaux and this... More

Wow, wow, wow. A nice stroll along the Port of the Moon at night is a must do when in Bordeaux. It is such a picturesque setting. The buildings are light up with a magical glow offset by the surrounding port/water. You don't need to spend lots of time here, but as a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, I would... More

I marvelled and marvelled and marvelled... stumbled upon it quite by accident as every great travel esperience should be and its setting is only complimented by the quaintness of the rest of Bordeaux central is itself

The almost new or not so old ship... has done his last stop in port de la lune in Bordeaux. The european crisis has lead to discommision ships like this to restrict army expenses. What a petty that we do not see this kind of event more often...

Along the waterfront the current mayor has made some significant changes, with wide open spaces, a boulevard and great water feature, the miroir d'eau. Go and have a stroll, it's beautiful. Bordeaux lacks greenery, so the gardens along the waterfront are a sight for sore eyes! They're a great spot for an evening picnic.

Not in a great neighborhood, we walked there from the hotel and the area was a bit seedy. We really liked this place, food was good, prices were reasonable, did not seem touristy, looked like we were the only foreigners. Not posh and seemed authentic. Staff were friendly. Good value, would go back.
