Simply superb

We booked this place in advance for a Saturday night as we were staying close by. Glad we did because it soon filled up. It started well, when we were asked if we wanted english or french menus and whether we wanted to speak french of English. So we treid French and they were very accommodating... read more

L'Oiseau Bleu was recommended by local family members who'd frequented the restaurant and we certainly understood what they loved about the restaurant, situated just across the 13 arch bridge connecting central Bordeaux to the eastern side of town. A 12 Euro taxi ride dropped us off at the front door of the restaurant, where we found the pleasant decor populated... More

It is really one of the best restaurents in Bordeaux. I would probably recommend it to everyone who likes high cuisine. Little bit expensive menu but it worth it. You will see a tasty picture in your plate!

Really interesting menu and delicious food that were works of art. The staff were very attentive and can speak English if you want them to, or not if you want to try out your French. Pleasant surroundings and nice atmosphere, it was busy with many locals and a few tourists. Off the main tourist spots but easy to get to... More

Booked this restaurant having read all the good reviews here, and was glad I did. A lovely meal on a gorgeous terrace, with excellent, high quality food, very friendly and professional service and reasonably priced for the top standard you get. Highly recommend going out of your way for this place.

We had a dinner in L'Oiseau in our first night in Bordeaux recommended by our tour agent. The food and service was fantastic and is very good value (around 40 Euros for a 3 course meal). We also sat at a nice outdoor dining area which is a perfect way to spend a summer night in Bordeaux. Street parking is... More

We had dinner at l'Oiseau Bleu the last night of our stay in Bordeaux. The tram ride and walk to the somewhat bland location of the restaurant was worth it. The dishes were carefully prepared and well presented, the combination of textures and flavours worked well, and the service was attentive and friendly. The price - quality ratio is more... More

Had lunch here with friends a few days after the New Year. Very good food, imaginatively presented, not that expensive for the quality that is provided. Hostess and wait staff very friendly, and did a good job of explaining the ingredients and methods of preparation of various dishes to our non-French speaking table. Service was very good and attentive, without... More

Dined here a year ago for a special occasion and had my socks blown off. Couldn't wait to return and was not disappointed. Brought more friends this time and as it was later in the year we dined inside instead of the terrace. Still wonderful ambience, if not quite as magical as the terrace is in the evening. A veloute...

We walked two miles in blitzing sunshine to find the restaurant but as soon as we were greeted and taken to the beautiful terrace and handed the menu we knew it was going to be worth it! The food at L'oiseau Bleu was wonderful, beautifully presented and full of flavour. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff friendly and helpful... More
