Description: Opened in November 2007, this bold new venture has been a stylish addition to the Bordeaux restaurant scene. Located on rue du Palais Gallien, Les Sens Ciel – meaning 'the sky' – is a heavenly spot to sample local cuisine from Bordeaux and every region of France. The dining room has a discreet rustic-yet-luxe provincial ambience, and attracts fashionable locals along with elegant and well-heeled travellers. Les Sens Ciel's menu changes daily, and the freshest seasonal produce from the Archachon basin is used to create a variety of dishes that will please even the greediest gourmands. It goes without saying that Les Sens Ciel also has a fabulous French-led wine list
