Location and contact

SOUTHWEST - Typical recipes of the southwest, relaxed atmosphere and cooking which delights the amateurs of good food: no doubt, it is good of the Bistrot des Capucins, a restaurant of the center of Bordeaux, question of which it is! COOK COUNTRY - You will feast without complexes with these generous plates which put in front of fresh products, premises and of the market, in a really flavourful regional food! RETRO BAR - retro Decoration and atmosphere very warm and relaxed for this establishment which welcomes as well the youngs which big group, the friends that families!

Great food at this little bistro. The moule frite was the best I've ever tasted - delicious creamy base, well-seasoned mussels, and tasty fries. My wife had a beautiful grilled duck breast, which was just perfect. For dessert, the French toast was divine, and melting...More

After reading reviews, decided to try out the restaurant. First dish of escargot was well cooked; so in anticipation, would have expected the duck breast to be delivered the same BUT it was a total disappointment. The duck was raw and tough. It nullified the...More

We made reservations online and mentioned as we arrived. We were inside at a tucked away 2 top. My husband enjoyed the duck (Magret de canard) with an exquisite peppercorn sauce served with frites. While they were out of my modules, I enjoyed a dozen...More
