Our last night in Bordeaux we visited Son' Restaurant for an incredible meal. 5 courses, each more delicious than the last, with delightful wine pairings throughout. Not only did each dish look amazing, they tasted even better, and you'd be remiss to visit Bordeaux and...not dine there. The staff were genuinely lovely and accommodating, very informative about dishes and wine pairings, and the restaurant itself the perfect venue for an evening out.More

​The ​multicourse ​menu at Son' is set by the chef, with option​s​ to add a foie gras starter, a cheese course, and/or pairings of regional wines. Our meal at Son' was an inspiring exploration of fascinating flavor combinations. For example, who would have imagined that...a dollop of intense oyster ice cream (!) added to ring-like pasta resembling calamari could be phenomenal? Or that a translucent bubble mimicking a ball of gelatin, when gently prodded with a fork, would yield a small cloud of smoky vapor? An elaborate and gorgeous apple dessert consisted of several inner surprises. The cheese course included slivers of delightfully strong, lesser known cheeses. Equally amazing, this gastronomic experience was extremely reasonably priced. ​​The service was friendly and knowledgeable. Visit this restaurant before it becomes starred and expensive.More

Best food I’ve ever tried in my whole life… tasty and everything was in harmony. If I visit Bourdeax again I’m sure I’ll come once more…

What a special treat in the middle of Bordeaux. This is on the fine dining side but not overly expensive. I made my way by accident walking to "centre vile" and decided to stop in. A set menu is available for lunch (approx 23 eu...) for three courses. What a lovely first course (pictured) of oeuf parfait (excellente!) and a poitrine de porc for the main. I wouldn't miss this little spot for some great French cuisine and imaginative combinations. Highly recommend. Btw I added the cheese course and was not disappointedMore

Had no real expectations of this place. Not the best location but Wow! What a wonderful experience. The restaurant offers a fixed set menu of 2 starters, 2 mains - fish and meat and a sweet. 45 Euros each. We also went for the tasting...wine per plate offer, another 24 euros. Trust me when I say it was the best 69 euros ever spent in a restaurant The head chef Renzetti is a genius! Each plate was a riot of flavours and colour.... real top draw nouvelle cuisine and the wine was a perfect accompaniment every time. Every plate was served complete with a full description of the food on offer by the very energetic and passionate staff. I don’t think anyone working at the restaurant was older than 25 but what they presented was in every way pure top end service. This place is an absolute must for anyone who appreciated good food, wine and service. We shall definitely be going back.More

Where to start! The service was impecable. We entered the restaurant, chose our table and were taken through the evening menu available by Sarah who was incredibly attentive. Water was constantly refilled and everything was served with perfect timing. It was a fixed 5 course,...I have to call it a “journey” not a menu. I was a little hesitant as my wife is fairly particular about which food she enjoys and the way it is cooked, hence she prefers to choose her own dishes, but I need not have any concerns. I chose to have wine pairing, whilst my wife chose sparkling wine made from raspberries (which she proclaimed as fabulous). I wont go through each dish experience as I understand it changes daily, but each dish was very different, very complex in flavour and execution and I had never heard of most of the wines which were also interesting and complimented each dish beautifully. Each dish reflected how carefully the chef had thought through the different flavours and combinations, perfectly balancing the ingredients. The detail is truly impressive. At inception you are teased with bread and delicious cardomom and saffron butter, leaving you in anticipation for the show to begin. Each time the dishes come out, they are creative, innovative and maybe for some too adventurous. Not for us! Close your eyes, take a mouth full and see where those flavours take you. And then just when the curtain is about to fall, the young chef, Sylvian Renzetti comes to your table with the pièce de résistance. Its not a desert, its a work of art. The chef explains passionately how he has been influenced and how he has created this masterpiece. Quite frankly, I think the guy is a genius and it was one of the best pieces of theatre we have ever eaten!More

We get only one set menu but if you tell us when you book your table, we try to adapt with all food requirements. Hopefully we'll see you soon.
