This is a vibrant square surrounded by beautiful building and numerous bistros. I was there on a Friday evening and the place was buzzing. Lots of restaurants off the side streets.

Large square with beautiful hotels and buildings. Also Apple Store is here so free wifi in square! Where the Christmas market is during holidays. Do have to be careful of cars and quiet electric tram running thru it all

It is a surprise to see this little square within the streets of the old town in Bordeaux. After shopping along St. Catherine street, it was nice to relax in this square for a nice lunch.

Spent a good few evenings here with so many good places to eat and places to grab a beer or a wine. Prices reasonable Clos Just off the river front close to the trams (BOURSE) not far from the main shopping drag. Recomended

Sitting in one of the cafe siping coffee watching the world go by, lovely spot. The old buildings complement each other with architectural design.

Sit outside one of the bars/restaurants that surround the square and watch the world go by. We were here int he evening and there were a number of inventive and talented buskers/street performers. Some that rotated around the various bars etc.

Squares like this just don't exist in North America...so to me, this is Europe. Nice to just sit, people watch and admire the architecture. The cafes are perfect for this activity. Try to get here during the day when it's bustling and then again...after dark....More

Great place with a couple of fancy bars (Grand hotel de bourdeaux and Le Regent) and the Opera house. At night the lights are beautiful and there is always people crossing.
