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

We ate at this lovely restaurant last week for lunch. We arrived at Noon, a tad early by French standards, I think. Sophie seated us on the terrace and made sure we had shade from the plentiful umbrellas. It was a warm Bordeaux day, and sitting on the beautiful patio made it feel so relaxing. We ordered from the a... More

We were a party of six and having researched possible lunch venues with terraces and good food we plumped for L'Oiseau Bleu. We were not disappointed, the fixed price menu was excellent and represented good value for this level of cooking, we had some excellent local wine to go with our meal which was also reasonably priced. The terrace is... More

We were really pleasantly surprised by our lunch at this restaurant. The food was so creative and well presented. We ate on the terrace on a gorgeous day. It was easy to get to on the tram, really well priced ... and very delicious!!!
