5 Casual Restaurants in Bordeaux

I am often asked where locals go out to eat. Here is a list of my personal favorites for a casual Bordeaux-style dinner.

Small restaurant with local seasonal foods and Bordeaux wines. In the summertime, the outside tables are set by the walls of the Saint-Peter’s church. Truly local atmosphere.

Always fresh fish and oysters. Open 7 days a week, this restaurant is in the middle of the Saint-Pierre Quarter night life, which makes it a great spot for people watching.

Check out this restaurant for a casual French dinner. Their dining room is on the second floor of a classical Bordeaux building.

Praised as one of the best pizza places in Bordeaux with locals lining up for a table every night.

A bit of a modern legend of Bordeaux. Creative cuisine by a young chef.

Some restaurants are closed on Sundays and Mondays and some days in July and August.  Always check before you go. Read about French restaurant do’s and dont’s in my other post.

Enjoy dining in Bordeaux!
