Affordable Restaurants

Jean Pince
 Lobster is the star of this self-proclaimed seafood canteen in the cobbled old town. A bright and airy, glass and timbered interior reflects the style of a young team, headed by Alex, a former apprentice of Alain Ducasse. Whether in an American style roll or as the main component of an avocado and grapefruit salad, the generous serving of crustaceans will not disappoint. Don't regret not trying the citrus cheesecake or 3-textured chocolate mousse.

Address: 19 Rue de la Devise | Telephone: 07 70 29 36 58 |

Very Table
 The menu at this organic food restaurant changes every 2 days, and is heavily influenced by what is in season and available within a 150km radius. The organic vegetables displayed at the entrance can also be purchased for takeaway, with suggestion on how to best prepare them. Chef Francois' love of seafood means that it always features on the menu which offers 2 choices for each course, at €18.50 for three courses.

Address: 51 Rue Judaïque | Telephone: 05 56 01 26 97 |

Breizh Glouton
Inspired by a Breton grandmother's savoury crêpe recipe, the pancake fillings at this centrally located creperie range from standard combinations to the exotic. Waiters clad in striped t-shirts help you choose between langoustine, squid and spinach from Brittany or locally sourced smoked duck, fig and foie gras, with chocolate or salted caramel options for dessert. The cider menu is worthy of attention too.

Good Quality Restaurants

Le 7
 The seventh floor of the Cité du Vin wine museum is home to this panoramic restaurant which has enviable views of the river and the city. Although ingredients such as turbot or beef fillet are sourced locally, the accompaniments of the dishes reveal an inspiration that comes from further afield. This cosmopolitan outlook is also mirrored in a wine list with references from over 50 countries, and a large range available by the glass.

 Scottish-born Daniel Gallacher chose this spot off Place Gambetta to put down roots. Though the interiors may be simple, the food certainly is not and it deservedly receives attention for being the best-priced gastronomic experience in the city. 3 courses range from €19 at lunch to €29 for dinner, offering a choice between fish and meat, often paired with fruit. 

Address: 59 Rue Georges Bonnac | Telephone: 05 56 98 43 08 |

 Never trust a skinny chef warns the sign at this small and simply decorated restaurant which has captured the attention of local Italophiles. In addition to a wine list which reads as the best-of-the best of Italian wine producers, Sardinian-born Giovanni is strongly influenced by the sea, reflected in his gnocchi with calamari or langoustine risotto. Dishes such as foie gras and burrata and black truffle pigeon also suggest local inspiration. Be tempted by the tasting menu of €55. Booking is strongly recommended.

Fine Dining Restaurants

Le Pressoir d'Argent
Taking its name from the device used to press lobsters, it is unsurprisingly that the crustacean features regularly at this 2-Michelin starred restaurant. While Gordon Ramsey may have designed the menu as a tribute to French culinary heritage, in reality, head-chef Gilad Peled's dishes are a combination of local specialties with iconic British produce such as the successful pairing of foie gras and Scottish venison.

Address: The Grand Hotel de Bordeaux, 2-5 Place De La Comedie | Telephone: 05 5730 43 04 |

Le Pavillon des Boulevards
 Worth a detour, this discrete Michelin-starred restaurant offers the best value in town, especially at lunchtime when four courses with wine costs €40. Nothing is traditional, whether it is the modern décor, creative menu or the chef/sommelier team who own it. Expect small portions of attractive, seasonally inspired dishes, such as pigeon with almonds and green peas or lobster with vanilla-infused potato.
