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!

My favorite restaurant is...
My favorite restaurant is called ' Le Galluchat'. It is located close to St Pierre place. There are many different restaurants all around the place and this is definitively the place to go when dining in Bordeaux.
But, whatever restaurant you go in, you won't be disappointed as Bordeaux's food is excellent and you have delicious wines to go with!!
Favorite Dish: I loved to have a 'Salade de Gesiers' or some 'foie gras' to begin, and then a special meat with some good red wine...and I always finished with a good ice cream!!
There are a lot of restaurants...
There are a lot of restaurants in Bordeaux, but do not try to eat before 7 o'clock in the evening because everything is closed. its normal in the south of french to start dinner after 8 o'clock, and this is not handy when you've been shopping the whole day and walking around the city because you get very hungry
fabrice's Restaurant Tip
Favorite Dish: if you like gastronomy,the best area is 'la dordogne' where you will taste 'la cuisine du périgord',well-known in france;80 kms north-east from bordeaux;on this map,all the triangles mean a very very good restaurant
in Bergerac (75 km east of...
in Bergerac (75 km east of Bordeaux): the restaurant of Chateau Monbazillac. located at Chateau Monbazillac (5 km south of Bergerac)
very special: Chateau Monbazillac produces a world famous desert wine, very similar to a Sauternes and - may be - better than many of these. Today most wineries in Bergerac make their own Monbazillac but still one of the best comes from the Chateau itself ---- now the best: if you visit the 16th century castle they let you taste the Monbazillac as well! In combination with the restaurant you can sit on the terrace, enjoying the panorama when you look down to the Dordogne river, drink your Monbazillac ...
Favorite Dish: local specialities, menues can be ordered including the right wines. Menue of 5 dishes including 4 wines start at FF 200.-
in St.-Emilion, 40 km east of...
in St.-Emilion, 40 km east of Bordeaux: Le Tertre
excellent cellar: not only visible due to a front made of glas but even the choice of wines is great! if you bring the money with you it's no problem to get a 50 years old Chateau Petrus :-))), it's just some FF 50000.- = some $ 7000.-
Favorite Dish: local specialities as duck brest, smoked or grilled, duck and goose liver, truffes. and more and more and more.
Tip: try a menue with 3 or 4 dishes (3 dish menues start at FF 120.-)
YOu will have no problems...
YOu will have no problems finding a restaurant in Bordeaux, there are plenty for everybody's taste and pocket. Usually at night you will find young people passing out flyers with the restaurant's special.
