Seafood Restaurant

“ A totally iconic Bordeaux bistrot: Everything is authentic, from the Bistrot cuisine, to the timeless 19th c. decor, to the professional waiters who could be characters in a movie thriller set in Bordeaux. We love the steak tartar, the quiche, the oysters, but everything is delicious. Fabulous quality/price. $/€ THIS IS A MUST-DO, if only for a café or apero.”

“A hidden gem in central Bordeaux, right next to Victor Hugo car park. Enjoy the inventive modern French cuisine with interesting selection of Bordeaux wine. The Japanese chef, Tetsuro, who has been classically trained in France and Japan, and the Japanese sommelier, Nobuki, who is qualified both in France and Japan, will be your hosts. Clavaillon delivers the seasonal produce to L'exquis every week.”
