“Delicious and interesting food combinations!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

A "local" restaurant in the Chartrons area near Place Paul Doumer and the Jardin Public - easy to get to and away from the usual tourist haunts.

Although the front is austere, inside is warm and unpretentious. There is a quiet ambience upstairs, and busy feel downstairs with a glass partition separating the kitchen from the tables.

The Le Soir menu for 28 euros is excellent value! We enjoyed a delicious 3 course meal with thoughtful and novel flavour combinations. Possibly the best risotto I have had (green risotto with John Dory and scallops).

I could have eaten here for lunch and dinner every day. Highly recommended!

“Very pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

We had dinner here our first night in Bordeaux. We were cold and tired and when we sat down for dinner everything changed. The staff were really friendly and the food was fantastic (particular mention to the onion soup). The restaurant is lively with a good atmosphere and everything just built to a great dinner. Price wise the restaurant offers various menu options so there is something for most budgets. Would definetly go back next time in Bordeaux

“My Favorite Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2012

Gravelier is an unpretentious gem of a restaurant. Order the daily special, you will certainly be pleased, they do innovative twists on classic fresh ingredients. I still remember the grilled strawberries and green peppercorns!!

“One of our real favourites in Bordeaux”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

A small elegant & cosy restaurant in the lovely Chartrons area of Bordeaux with a famous chef. Every time we go, we have his fixed 'Le Soir' 3 course menu with no choices @ 28 euro. It gets us to try things we would not naturally order ( on est 'British', after all!) and they always turn out to be delicious.

For those who need more choice, there's the next menu up (with choices) at 39 euro which always looks very appetising. And then there's a no holds barred Carte Blanche menu at 55. There's a good choice of wines, although we always tend to go for a Graves we love which seems to go with everything. Yes, that's heresy, I know.
