This was my first meal in Bordeaux and I can't wait to go back. Had the "menu surprise", a 10-course meal for 50 euros. I would rate this restaurant as one of my most memorable meals in France... Impeccable presentation, attentive service, packed with flavours, smart and affordable wine list.

Recently ate here with my family after hearing alot about it. We made a reservation in advance which you must do. They are very particular about that because it is only small and they like giving a good custom service and also because they fill up quick. The food is well-presented and tasty. I found the menu had alot of... More

This restaurant is just great,reservation is a must as it is small and very popular. Food was excellent, staff friendly and very helpful ,prices correct and obviously the rest of the diners agreed - the place was buzzing from when we arrived until we left. Location is good, handy for shopping, theatre,opera etc.

Do yourself a favour when next in the city of Bordeaux and make a reservation at this small (40 seater) bistro and sit back and enjoy every aspect of a great dinner. We were greeted by friendly staff, seated and offered as much help as we needed to select from the short menu and wine list. Our two course menu... More

We couldn't do the food justice, as we had had a big lunch that day and couldn't finish the generous main course. We'd like to go back when we're hungrier. The food is beautifully presented. The service is friendly and efficient. The place has a good atmosphere, busy but unhurried.

The excellent cooking and friendly staff alone would justify seeking out the Bouchon Bordelais (tucked away near the grand theatre). Nevertheless the diminutive scale of this bistrot means you will probably have to plan ahead. Menus and wine are fairly priced and the dining room buzzed with a happy Anglo-French crowd. The cannele I had with my coffee was the... More

A repeat visit to what must be one of Bordeaux's hidden gems. Delicious food/ great wines and a bill at the end that was very reasonable given the quality. You have to book well in advance as it is extremely popular
