Description: Located on the rue Croix-de-Seguey in Bordeaux, this intimate and romantic restaurant is a top dining destination for discerning foodies. Run by the husband and wife team of Denis and Nelly Franc, the cream-coloured dining rooms at Le Pavillion des Boulevards have an elegant ambience and are decorated with quirky paintings of kitchen utensils. The restaurant boasts both a garden and a sunny terrace, and is renowned for its hearty French fare. We love the caviar served in chesnut-flavoured cream; the grilled crayfish with blood sausage and cider jus; and the fillets of turbot served with Parmesan risotto. The restaurant's sommelier is extremely knowledgeable, and Le Pavillion des Boulevards hosts regular wine tasting events.

This restaurant is quite a walk out of town, but worth the effort. The rear courtyard is a total surprise, and delightful. The 'menu surprise' was excellent - this chef has a real talent for combining interesting flavours and textures. Pricey, but value for money.

I had high hopes for my visit to Le Pavillon, however the food was completely overshadowed by the abissmal service. For example the sommelier failed to offer to decante a bottle of Mouton Rothschild and was forced to stand to ask for a bottle of water having asked three times previously. Very dissapointing.

If the weather is nice, a reservation in the garden is a must. I recommend the menu decouverte (surprise menu) as the best value. Without doubt in our opinion this is the best restaurant in Bordeaux (far better than Le Chapon Fin, and can compete with the best in South-West France, such as Michel Guerard or Les Freres Ibarboure). Although only one Michelin star it is worth three.
Albeit in a run-down area about 5 mins from the centre, and with an unimposing exterior, the ambience in the restaurant outside and the food more than compensate. The Sommelier is also outstanding.
