Absolutely no fuss, no frills...just fresh seafood at bargain prices in the midst of a bustling market. The service is excellent, bread fresh, wine good and cheap, eclectic crowd. I love watching the oyster shucker at work. There are other things, too, such as charcuterie, soupe de poisson and even desserts....but I stick to the oysters, the bullots and maybe... More

This restaurant inside the Marche des Capucins serves wonderful fresh seafood at bargain prices. We each had 6 oysters and a glass of wine for 8E each and added a dish of Bulots for 6E. All super fresh and delicious, and served with excellent bread. Good service. Larger seafood platters are available.

I found this place by accident on TripAdvisor. My wife loves seafood and I am fond of some but not all fishy things. A big plate of mixed seafood cost 24 Euro at the time we were there but we just had a half plate for 12 Euro. My wife thought the Oysters delicious and I really liked the crab... More

Staff, seafood and atmosphere here are fantastic! Loved this place and well worth queuing for at the weekend as it's very popular with the locals. So warm and friendly and such good value. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Bordeaux.

Our group toured the market one particular morning, enjoying all the amazing colors and aromas of the market, tasting cheese and bread along the way. We reserved lunch for our group. A warm greeting and smiling servers in a hectic, bustling, fun environment, it was the market! It is also a great place to people watch. They have seating inside,... More

This is the most fantastic place. It's unassuming, amazing value, and a definite must if a fan of sea food. It's a tad daunting, located in a busy market, however be brave and you will be rewarded! All of the food was fresh, delicious, and served by friendly waiters. We ordered a Fruits De Mer for 1, extra prawns and... More

On our exploration of Bordeaux we came across the well known market Halles des Capucins, which unfortunately as it was Monday did not have a lot going on. A few bars were open and we settled on Chez Jean-Mi, a good choice as it turned out. Very pleasant staff, who is quite helpful with suggestions. We had breakfast (coffee and... More

Marche des Capucins was high on our list of places to go during a short visit to Bordeaux - and six oysters and a glass of wine (bread butter and lemon included!) for 7.50 Euro made the visit memorable! It was chilly, but Jean-Mi provided blankets to keep us warm. With a detour - but remember the market is closed... More
