Another hotel and TA recommendation, we enjoyed the ambiance here a lot. Service was attentive but like most French restaurants, we were able to enjoy a leisurely dinner. My husband really liked the lamb and my beef was tasty, although I wish I had ordered it more than just medium as it was very rare. The wine selection was excellent... More

We ate here on our last night in Bordeaux and wished we had time to come back again. It was a rainy night so we sat inside, although some of the outdoor tables were occupied by brave diners. We were welcomed by a wonderful woman who seated us and made us feel at home. The restaurant is small, with stone... More

The is a great place for a steak. You can choose your cut of steak and they go away and cook it to your liking. We also had the selection of charcuterie to start with and it was excellent! The atmosphere is great, you share long tables, although it was fairly quiet when we went. Would highly recommend this place... More

We came in for a Sunday lunch and were not let down. We shared the steak for 2 which was really delicious. The steak was a great quality washed down with a French red. The waitress wAs lovely but as the meal went on you could see she was stretched and too busy for one person. There was a lot... More

We were recommended by Hela, our walking tour guide, to have lunch at this small bistro type restaurant situated in a back street a short distance from the crowed restaurant area around the Place du Parlement. Small cramped and buzzing, mostly with locals having their lunch, this is the type of restaurant I love to find in France. Good value... More

My wife and I found this lovely place by accident wandering around the back streets of Bordeaux. We had lunch on two occasions and were not disappointed; the fish, salads and beef are all superb, accompanied by good quality and reasonably priced house wine. Staff excellent - charming and helpful and, a bonus, spoke English.

In a restaurant justly renowned for its excellent beef, I had the best langoustines ever! (A pity there weren't more.) Agree fully with all the excellent reviews.

I won't repeat the very accurate descriptions of the food other reviewers have described. All I can say is "C'est magnifique!" My wife and I so enjoyed our leisurely lunch at Le Bouchon Bordelais surrounded by a number of French locals having a wonderful time. The conversations were so lively, but not loud, and not always verbal. A taste of... More

What a little gem of a place?! So glad I got this recommendation through trip advisor. You definitely need to book this one as it is only a small place~ you can do this online. If you're looking for good French cuisine, with vibrant artwork on the walls and lounge music to boot, then this is the place for you.... More

Recommended by friends, we booked (essential) at this tiny restaurant. Out of the way, but a short very walk from the main square of Bordeaux. A cosy, lovely room. As other reviewers have noted, the floor staff were happy to explain, in English since it was easier for us, that we could order the menu - three courses for 38... More
