Some hundred restaurants, divided into three categories, offer refined cuisine together with a list of fine wines of which our wine-growing area, renowned the world over, is justly proud.
To make it easier to find just what you want, use the following search criteria:
• Type: gourmet establishments, restaurants, brasseries
• Location: in Bordeaux, the official city centre is Place Gambetta. The old town (Saint Pierre, Saint Michel, Sainte Croix) abounds with little restaurants and bistros where you can enjoy local fare or more exotic dishes. In the Grands Hommes district you will find classic French restaurants serving the truly gastronomic cuisine of Bordeaux. The historic wine-merchants’ district houses many restaurants perpetuating the tradition, while the Mériadeck district is the newest part of the city and has many hotel-restaurants.
• Price: there is a significant price-difference between lunch menus and dinner menus. You can grab a quick lunch consisting of the dish of the day and a glass of wine for €10 in any good brasserie, or you might prefer a two-course meal (“starter and main” or “main and dessert”) for around €15.
• Local specialities: there are many to choose from, such as entrecôte bordelaise (steak Bordeaux-fashion), fish, shell-fish and cheese, all served with a carefully chosen wine – matching dishes with a suitable wine is our speciality.
