This is Michelin starred restaurant - that means different things

Michelin starred restaurants usually bring an unusual dining experience to the table. Its all good, but also a matter of interpretation. If you are thinking cheeseburger, run in the opposite direction. If you are a foodie looking for an exceptional (albeit alternative) food experience, stop... read more

We had the tasting menu and accompanying flight of wines. All well-matched. At first service was, well, a bit cool, but the staff warmed up to us as the evening went on, to where we felt quite welcome. A great evening overall, and we highly recommend it. (Parking is challenging, but one of the staff was very helpful getting us... More

I agree very much with the previous reviewer: everything is very good and technically impeccable but it lacks flair. None of the dishes were really surprising or challenging, something I expect from a place with a Michelin star and at this price. The wine by glass chosen by the sommelier was excellent but quite expensive (18 € per glass). Service... More

We went for the tasting menu here - there really is no other option. The food was very, very good. But compared to some of the restaurant s we have been to elsewhere it was lacking in flair. The wines pairings were the strongest point of the evening - some great local surprises. And another observation: passion fruit and coconut... More

We've spent a family dinner (6) in this restaurant last week. Good welcome - nice staff. We were installed on 1st floor in this old townhouse of Bordeaux which used to be a family house in the past. We had a 8 course menu at Euro 85 each which is reasonable if you consider that this is high quality French... More

Visited in June 2014. Thought we would try a "class" place. Went for the top of the range tasting menu. Of the ten or eleven courses two or three were "amazing", three or four were "very good"and the others "good". I did not feel that this was a great strike rate considering a total cost including mid range wine of... More

We eat here 7 years ago on our last visit to Bordeaux, and remembered Le Pavillon des Boulevards for providing a wonderful dining treat; so on returning to the city on holiday again, it was an obvious choice to return. On this occasion we had the 8 course tasting for €130 and balanced the cost by having local white wine.... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday. The service is top notch, if slightly stiff, but friendly. The food was amazing and well deserves at least the one star the restaurant currently has. Each course was clearly thought out, well balanced and without chi chi. Would and will go again in a heartbeat.

We went to Pavillon upon arriving in Bordeaux after a 3-day stay in Paris for my wife's birthday. I can safely say that the food was as inventive, flavorful and as beautifully presented as any of the 2 or 3 star Michelin restaurants we visited in Paris. We had the tasting menu with wine custom-paired for us by the sommelier.... More

Locals know this place as one of the best restaurant in Bordeaux and they are definitely right about it. It is located about 10 minutes from city center by taxi. The place itself looking very simple and clean, but the food is scrumptious, nicely presented. Great wines too.
