3 meals over three evenings, perfect hosts and quality staff. If you treat them as you would expect to be treated yourself, you will only get the best service. I cannot criticise, the service or the food. The veal liver on the last night was cooked perfectly, the wine recommended by Guillaume and his staff was superb. They are fantastic... More

Great traditional cafe (established 1899) directly opposite the cathedral in Bordeaux. Sit outside, and absorb the sun and marvel at the fine architecture of the cathedral. Waiter service, traditional authentic style cafe with realistic prices. Recommended.

After an afternoon's sightseeing we were delighted to find the very welcoming classical establishment. The Afternoon Tea card offered a good choice of Teas and Coffees and also cakes. Service was prompt and courteous. If we had the time to dream we may have been transported to another epoch.

This is a normal cafe in a good location and drinks are as expected. Prices are okay but the service could be better.

We were staying very close to the cafe at a beautiful boutique hotel and used to walk the neighbourhood every day.

We visited Le Cafe Francais on a recent visit to Bordeaux. The location is beautiful and the restaurant is well appointed. Service was attentive and pleasant. However, the food was just average and relatively overpriced.
