Bordeaux may be a region renowned worldwide for it’s wines, but their food selection is also top class too. After all, any area that offers the variety of vino that Bordeaux does, is sure to have a consummate palette for the finer things in life!

If you are in Bordeaux and are looking for a great restaurant to while away a few hours whilst sampling a drop of the local good stuff, check out these fine eateries to compliment the wine on offer.

Le Chapon Fin
First on anyone’s list of local places to it will always be Le Chapon Fin. Offering some of the finest cuisine in the whole of Bordeaux, this fine dining, Michellin restaurant is a little pricey, but well worth it. Packing in the flavours and tastes since 1825, Le Chapon Fin offer a great taster menu, and if you happen to be around in the afternoon their set lunch offers great value for money. Of course, as to be expected the cellar is immaculate, but you really want to live the high life in Bordeaux, a table at Le Chapon Fin is an absolute must.

Oiseau Bleu
Ello, ello, ello, what’s all this then? Well, THIS, is an amazingly well priced restaurant that actually used to be a police station! It features a delightful terrace that is well worth a couple of hours of your time (weather permitting of course) and offers up a great selection of tradition fresh treats with a modern twist. The prices are very reasonable for the standard of food, but please book early if you are visiting on the weekend as it gets terribly buddy with both locals and tourists.

Le Gabriel
Le Gabriel truly is the heartbeat of Bordeaux’s prominent dining scene, so if you want to experience it for yourself, be sure to book a table at this fantastic eaterie. Serving the uber chic clientele with the 18th-century grandeur of the Palais de la Bourse, this amazing Michelin starred restaurant offer up some of the finest cooking in the region, and that’s saying something! Head chef François Adamski combines classic french cooking with modern panache to keep the local customers coming back in droves. Maybe the jewel in Bordeaux’s crown.

There are many other restaurants to visit whilst in Bordeaux, but for me these are definitely three of the best. With a variety of prices to suit all budgets, Bordeaux really does have something for everyone. It’s no wonder more and more people are making the return visit every year.
