Bordeaux restaurants open past 10pm ?
You’re just leaving the cinema, or predinner drinks that turned into dinnertime drinks, or simply you lost track of time… it’s already 10pm and you’re sure you’ve missed finding a restaurant in Bordeaux where you can eat with your family, friends, as a couple, or by yourself? Don’t worry. Here are several suggestions for where you might pleasantly continue your night out.
The most festive spot: A Cantina – Comptoir Corse
On the ground floor, a tapas bar offers a variety of traditional bite-sized products in a festive atmosphere: bruschetta and piquillos stuffed with lamb, mini-burgers with veal and Corsican tome, cannelloni with Brocciu, breaded chicken accompanied with honey mayonnaise, apple friti with cheese and the unmissable assortment of cold cuts (lonzu, coppa, noce, prisuttu and sausage). For vegetarians: between zucchini fritters with mint and Cannelloni with Brocciu, mint, tomato sauce and fresh basil, there is sure to be something for everyone. As well, don’t miss the famous Corsica Clementine confit served with grandma’s favorite chestnut flour cake and hazelnut ice cream. Excited taste buds guaranteed!
For a more intimate atmosphere, we recommend the first-floor restaurant which takes reservations exclusively by telephone.

The most danceable restaurants: MAZAL AND YELED
Sarah and Samuel opened 'Mazal' (good star in Hebrew), this new culinary star in July 2021, and it was an instant success. The cuisine is Mediterranean with Levantine influences. The first service takes place in a cosy atmosphere, with subdued lighting, while the second is much more festive. From 11pm onwards, the sound goes up a notch, the team sets the counter on fire and customers are invited to dance on the bar - a festive atmosphere guaranteed!
A year later, the couple opened Yeled, with the same concept except that the menu focuses on seafood.

The most legendary restaurant: Le Cochon Volant
If this former Capus butchers has such notoriety, it’s because for some time it was where partygoers and night workers would go to fill themselves with steak and fries or pork intestines at 4 o’clock in the morning. The hours have since been reduced but the atmosphere remains unchanged: the establishment is full of character. On this red and white walled bistro’s menu: Bordeaux escargots (house special), sole, sweetbreads, lamb shanks, pigs’ foot, prime rib of beef, Bordeaux eel, fried duck, head of veal, oysters, sausage, etc.

The latest open restaurant: Chez Ludo
Theoretically this place, located just 50 meters from its pork-based, winged brother, is open until 4am. It is smart to make reservations, however, because service occasionally stops earlier. Simple, fresh, and tasty, the kitchen offers a nighttime meal centered around a piece of beef, tartare, or royal steak with foie gras (25 €). And for vegetarians, enjoy a delicious roasted camembert and homemade fries! For dessert, try clafoutis, strawberry pies or tiramisus.

Hispanic atmosphere, a tapas bar?
When it's getting late and you want to chat and munch over a few glasses of wine, a tapas bar is definitely a good option, and there's no shortage of them in Bordeaux!
On Place St Michel, the Donostia welcomes you until 2am from Tuesday to Saturday, or the Auberge Espagnole, near Porte Cailhau, is open until midnight from Thursday to Saturday.
OR ARE YOU MORE INTO THE BRITISH PUB STYLE?
And if you prefer a pub atmosphere, you'll be spoiled for choice between the Frog & Rosbif, open every day until 1am, the Molly Malone or, on the right bank, the Central Pub, also open every day until 2am, and many others... In these establishments the beer flows freely and the food is rather basic, but suitable for the hungry.
