The menu is not extensive but that is reflected in the originality and detail in the dishes. We started our meal with an amuse-bouche of monkfish tail on a flavoursome pumpkin mousse with a pumpkin seeds, it was a very good start to the meal. For starters I had carpaccio of veal, served with a salted crispbread, pickled and slow... More

L'oiseau bleu was recommended to me by a friend living nearby, and I was truly impressed by the quality of the food, the very professional and courteous service of the whole, often young, team. The fixed menu options offer great value for money and even if you are travelling on a budget, a complete lunch at 25€ doesn't set you... More

choose the St Valentine menu food was ok but definitely not in line with the price (140 euro per personn!!!) 1 of the wine served wasn't really exceptional at all. extremely expensive for what it is in terms of ambient/context/location I would definitely recommend going somewhere else

We booked this place in advance for a Saturday night as we were staying close by. Glad we did because it soon filled up. It started well, when we were asked if we wanted english or french menus and whether we wanted to speak french of English. So we treid French and they were very accommodating. The food was quite...

L'Oiseau Bleu was recommended by local family members who'd frequented the restaurant and we certainly understood what they loved about the restaurant, situated just across the 13 arch bridge connecting central Bordeaux to the eastern side of town. A 12 Euro taxi ride dropped us off at the front door of the restaurant, where we found the pleasant decor populated... More

It is really one of the best restaurents in Bordeaux. I would probably recommend it to everyone who likes high cuisine. Little bit expensive menu but it worth it. You will see a tasty picture in your plate!

Really interesting menu and delicious food that were works of art. The staff were very attentive and can speak English if you want them to, or not if you want to try out your French. Pleasant surroundings and nice atmosphere, it was busy with many locals and a few tourists. Off the main tourist spots but easy to get to... More

Booked this restaurant having read all the good reviews here, and was glad I did. A lovely meal on a gorgeous terrace, with excellent, high quality food, very friendly and professional service and reasonably priced for the top standard you get. Highly recommend going out of your way for this place.

We had a dinner in L'Oiseau in our first night in Bordeaux recommended by our tour agent. The food and service was fantastic and is very good value (around 40 Euros for a 3 course meal). We also sat at a nice outdoor dining area which is a perfect way to spend a summer night in Bordeaux. Street parking is... More

We had dinner at l'Oiseau Bleu the last night of our stay in Bordeaux. The tram ride and walk to the somewhat bland location of the restaurant was worth it. The dishes were carefully prepared and well presented, the combination of textures and flavours worked well, and the service was attentive and friendly. The price - quality ratio is more... More
