Bistro Romain: Bistro Romain
On our visit to Bordeaux Sandra's parents were joining us for dinner and this restaurant was chosen for our meal.
The restaurant was quite nice, with large tables, good service and from what I recall, good food, but the hilight of our meal was dessert selection, which left everyone wanting more.
It's a typical chain restaurant with decent food, good prices, good atmosphere and good service.
Favorite Dish: I really can't recall what I ordered for my meal, I know I did enjoy the dessert sampler with 6 different desserts, YUM!!
Try Milo's Cafe, for beer!: Lots of choice around Place de Parlement
Several places to eat on this square and the adjacent square around St. Peters church (happy hour for booze there!). Great salads and seafood choices - the menus are usual good value.
Try Milo's Cafe on the alley between St.Catheine road and Parlement Square - great kreik, also and other beers - sit in or out and be served.
'Pizza à Emporter': Cheap Fresh Pizzas
Maybe it is a warm summer evening, you had a very full lunch and now want something cheap and filling for an evening picnic. There is a small but busy Pizza take-away outlet at the corner of place Saint-Projet. Large pizzas are freshly cooked while you wait. While I was there several local people came from the nearby apartments to collect pizzas they had ordered.
Prices are around 6-8 euros for a very large pizza (around 40cm diameter!). Outlet open lunchtimes (till 14:30) and evenings (from around 19:00 I think).
The only disadvantages are you may have to wait 15 minutes and you have to find a very large waste-bin to dispose of the box!

Nomade Zone: Fresh food on wooden plates
So you don't want to sit for two hours eating a full meal? Understandable, but not very French ;o) Though for a peckish nomad like me, Nomade Zone was perfect. And had a cool name! It had a steady trade of young people while I was there, the food was quickly prepared by chatty, friendly staff. There were a long list of toasted bruschettas available with a variety of fillings for between 6 and 8 euros. And a small choice of (mainly ice cream) deserts.
What was unusual was the way the bruschettas were served - on wooden plates like chopping boards.
All in all an excellent experience. And Nomade Zone is on a street corner with big glass windows, great for watching the world go by.
Open midday to late evening.

Le Vieux Chaudron: Busy lunch venue, ridiculously cheap!
Between 12 and 2pm everything stops and the restaurants fill up! Le Vieux Chaudron is on a quieter street close to place Camille-Jullian and each day was filled with a mixture of French diners, old and young, couples and families. To be honest I was attracted by the very good prices - a 'formule' (set menu) for only 9.50 euros. And a glass of Bordeaux wine for an extra 1 euro. Perfect! You have a small choice of starter, main dish and desert, plus the obligatory jug of water and a basket of fresh bread rolls. I noticed that my main dish (liver and crispy chipped potatoes) was two or three times the size of the plates chosen 'a la carte'!!
The staff (an older couple and a young waitress) were delightfully relaxed, efficient and friendly. I passed the restaurant again the following day, it was equally full. Your biggest problem will be to find a table!

Table 23: Shh...it's a secret!
This restaurant is the best kept secret in Bordeaux...apparently! Tucked away in the back streets between Cours Victor Hugo and Cours Alsace Lorraine, it has an airy and romantic decked terrasse outside shielded from the street by bamboo plants, and the interior is a haven of theatrical retro with influences from the 1950s and 1960s. The menu is a huge chalkboard on the back wall and the wait staff are a little quirky to say the least. This place is the epitome of cool. The food is fine, not the best thing about this restaurant, but certainly decent enough. Try the cocktails...not to be missed! Also open for lunch with a €12 menu.
Favorite Dish: I had a very agreeable oeuf cocotte fois gras starter and a sliced duck main course. I'd say however that the food in the evening is a little pricey for what it is...but can you really put a price on a cool experience?
Le Port De La Lune: Jazz bar and Restaurant
Fantastic restuarant serving typical french cuisine and great Oysters if you're in to that too! The waiting staff were really friendly and they have an excellent range of wines from the house wines to Chateau La Fete wines if you feel like spending 250 euro on a bottle (!) They also play live jazz from 10pm so it's well worth sticking around for that, or even getting in for dinner as late as possible so you can enjoy the live music and the food at the same time (it's not overwhelmingly loud).
Favorite Dish: The mussels starter was excellent in a white wine broth. main course I had a steak, while the people with me had cod and duck. All three were very tasty and done exactly as requested. Dessert is also not to be missed if you can fit it in!
Jean Ramet: Good food and friendly service.
I have been to this restaurant twice. The food is always good (unlike Chapon Fin). They have no more than 10 tables in a very comfortable setting. Jean is the head chef, his wife Raymonde tries her best to make you feel at home. I enjoy dining at this restaurant. Very friendly service and excellent local cuisine.
Favorite Dish: Roasted pigeons and any foie gras entrees.
Chez Paulette: pleasant french atmosphere
how could i say, it was a quiet evening, looking for a pleasant place with fish
i didn t know this restaurant before, but i enjoyed the outside apperence
inside it s very pleasant, like a old restaurant
dressers were very good
and meals also (french cooking)
the charm of the decoration, very antiquity, chic and pleasant for a real "bistrot" cooking
Favorite Dish: all !
alose (fish), pot au feu (beef), snails, tea bone, garbure......

Terrasse St Pierre: A little pocket of calm in Bordeaux
We stumbled upon this restaurant as we strolled through the streets of Bordeaux town on a Sunday evening. The layout of the tables caught our eyes as it was prefessional, yet welcoming. Positioned at the corner of the Places St Pierre, next to the church tower which chimed once every hour, the wooden tables outside were beautifully laid with wine glasses glistening in the evening sunlight and large canvas umbrellas protected diners from the splendid overhanging tree at the front of the restaurant which gave the forecourt a peaceful atmosphere. The service was great and it was the perfect place to sit on a lazy Sunday evening and watch the world go by and enjoy the occasional busker. We stayed for 4 hours and even though the place was very busy we didn't feel rushed. We will definitely go back.
Favorite Dish: The quality of the food here speaks for itself, but they proudly announce that everything here is freshly prepared and made by the chef on the premises. I can believe it! The crumble foie gras was cooked with asparagas and was beautifully rich and delicious! The pate de foie gras was equally good and came not only with fresh toast, but with a bucket of soft fresh crusty bread. The salmon main course was delicately cooked and beautifully presented, as was the cod which was cooked in a crisy cumin coating. Our bread was replenished too. For dessert we had creme brulee praline and pave griottes...again, couldn't fault either dish on either taste or presentation. The wine list here is impressive and varied. We stuck to Bordeaux however and had two bottles of Bordeaux Superieur Chat Jonqueyres with our meal. Absolutely wonderful all round. The service was excellent and although this is not a budget restaurant, it is well worth the price you pay. The bill including wine was EUR 108 for two people.
MOULIN DU ROC: MY FAVORITE LUNCH
Stop for lunch at this restaurant. Not only are the gardens magnificent - so is the food. It's near Brantome and is called Moulin du Roc. It's a bit pricey but worth skipping dinner for.

Chai D'Oc: Really hungry ? Want french food ?
In a neigbourhood packed with standard cloned restaurants, the Chai d'Oc is decorated with stone walls, barrels, and wine-related engravings.
The base products make also a big difference, and the quantities are also suitable for big appetites like mine !
But if you want to be sure to be able to eat (even on saturdays) book 2 days before...
Favorite Dish: Tartare de boeuf !
Huge serving (400g) with homemade fries and salad, a great value for 11 euro.
Bistro Romain: For dessert lovers
The desserts make it special. The food in general was good. Nothing to complain about there. But the desserts were superb. There was this dessert that let's you taste all kinds of different things, mouse au chocolat, creme brulee, and much more. But if you order a mouse au chocolat (or intend to do so) make sure you have a very very light main course. It is served in a bowl so big that it took three of us to finish it.
LE ROHAN: Good food and a wonderful view to the cathedral
There is a wonderful restaurant on the square next to the cathedral. Its name is "Le Rohan" and they serve local food and -of coarse - local wines.
Favorite Dish: I remember that I had a wonderful steak and it went very will with the wine from St. Julien .... All the food is great there and selection of wine is also really perfect! You will also realize how the taste of a wine can change when drinking to to cheese .... a wonderful experience!
But unfortunately it is not cheap here!
