This was next to my hotel and a great place to try Bordeaux wines with a nice menu of appetizer plates to pair with them. I had the cheese and was very good. Service could of been better, as it was busy for just 2 waiters.

Great place close to the Grand Theatre. Great wine at great prices. We went back 3 times in one day, using it as a base to explore the area. Definitely recommend is you love your wine ;-)

Great wines ranging from 2.50 eur to 9 eur. Went with a group of 4 friends. We each had 2 glasses of wine and shared 2 appetizers (foie gras and goat cheese), we each payed approx 10 eur total. Well worth the visit! Great start to our Bordeaux adventure!

This place serves some seriously good wines from not only France. I even spotted an Aussie wine. Samples are available in 3 different volumes and well priced. A tapas food menu is available but if you wan a la carte there are only 2 entrees, 2 mains and 2 or 3 deserts. This menu is changed daily. We had langoustine... More

Our hosts at Beau Sejour recommended this wine bar in the center of Bordeaux. It's directly across from the main Tourist Information office, a block away from the Grand Theatre. As with many other wine bars, you can order from a long list of Bordeaux area wines. It offers small folders with the winery names that you can use for... More

We stumbled across this bar just walking through town and stopped in. It was a beautiful room and the staff was helpful and friendly, assisting us with picking wines to try. This was a great way to try several great wines from the region without having to invest in a bottle that you may or may not like. We didn't... More

This is a great place bang on in the heart of the city. Wines by the glass are cheap and appropriately priced so you can try a couple and have a proper taste of bordeaux wines. We had a wide range from bubblies (crémant) to proper heavy reds. Food is available in the form of cheese platters and charcuterie. One... More

I recently visited VinExpo and had heard rave reviews about this wine bar. Without a doubt the selection and quality of wines was outstanding at very reasonable prices. The service-what little there was was absolutely terrible. We were seated for a considerable time before anyone even greeted or approached us. Service was slow and not in the least friendly. The...
