La Folie Rouge is a nice restaurant to have dinner after a long day of walking and sightseeing. It offers inside and outside seating, although during weekends outside seating might be difficult to get. Staff was incredible friendly, helping my wife and I with our...french. It was the first restaurant we visited after arriving in Bordeaux, and the welcoming to this lovely city, could not have been better. Also, we had our dog with us, and without hesitation they offered to seat us inside with him! Yep you read that right, we ate inside the restaurant with our beloved family member. The appetizer (called entrée) we ordered was the “bruschetta de margret de canard fumé au foun”, really good and refreshing. We also ordered the “burrata di buffala”, which was okay. The cheese was really really cold, at least for my personal taste. Lastly we ordered the “entrecôte” (boneless rib-eye) and although cooked perfectly it was under seasoned, I would have preferred a bit more salt and pepper on it.More

Lovely quiet spot on a wide airy street. We didn’t want the hotel expensive breakfast at 45€, & wanted an outdoor cafe experience. This was perfect, sitting in the morning sunshine. As a special request they did us orange juice, cappuccino & cheese omelette for...a fraction of the hotel breakfast. Great value.More

The waiter was really nice and explained the whole menu in English (not that common in France). We got complimentary drinks and dessert after as compensation for disappointing food. However, food was very disappointing and not balanced with price. Foie gras (11€) was so so...small - 2 peaces of Foie gras on baguette. Octopus (20€) was not even visible on the plate how small it was. Gigot d'agneau (22€) was rubber and hard to eat. Chou-fleur gratiné (15€) is just a whole cauliflower backed with cheese and comes cold.More
