Let’s eat gourmet food!
Fancy a very gastronomic dinner in Bordeaux? Discover our selection of gourmet restaurants - Michelin-starred or not - offering exquisite, refined, and creative dishes.
LE CHAPON FIN
For a year now, Cédric Bobinet has been working in the kitchens of Le Chapon Fin. In the Rocaille and Art Deco setting of this renowned Bordeaux restaurant, the young Chef concocts a cuisine that pays homage to the fundamentals of French gastronomy. Both classic and sophisticated, Le Chapon Fin’s menu gives pride of place to bourgeois cuisine. This approach is best illustrated by the “blue” European lobster, the Brannens pigeon smoked with vine shoots, or the fine apricot tart with thyme and grilled almonds.
Founded in 2014 by Chef Tanguy Laviale and Sommelier Gaël Morand, two wine and gastronomy enthusiasts, Garopapilles was soon awarded a star in the Michelin Guide (2018). A much-deserved reward for the two partners who advocate a bold cuisine in the spirit of the times, with particular care brought towards food and wine pairings. Their motto, “Vin d’auteurs et cuisine à la hauteur,” (Fine cuisine at the service of signature wines) is reflected in a menu of fifteen dishes and a dozen or so nibbles, which vary with the seasons. In the summer, enjoy coconut-mint oysters or smoked scallops with asparagus.

« LA » TABLE D’HÔTES, LE 4E MUR
In 2017, two years after taking over the helm of the Grand Théâtre’s restaurant, Le 4e Mur, Philippe Etchebest decided to open a Table d’Hôtes in the very kitchens of this restaurant: a world first! “In this timeless place, I wanted to open my culinary world and share it with everyone”, explains the Chef. Rewarded with one star in the Michelin Guide in 2018, LA Table d'Hôte welcomes you under its vaulted ceiling, around a large blond ash table. For your taste buds, the Chef has concocted a surprise menu consisting of seven plates (appetiser, two starters, fish, meat, two desserts). Discover this refined and modern cuisine, with a guiding principle: taste!
LE PRINCE NOIR
Perched on the heights of Lormont, in the château of the same name, Le Prince Noir pursues its version of “gastronomy in tune with its time.” At the stove, Chef Vivien Durand favours a creative Basque-inspired cuisine with spicy piquillo coulis, sheep’s cheese and, of course, Ibaiana pork. “When I was eight years old, when I was preparing a sponge cake with my mother, I knew I wanted to become a Chef,” Vivien Durand recalls. In 2015, though he has been working for the Le Prince Noir only for a year, he is awarded a star in the Michelin Guide.

LE PRESSOIR D'ARGENT
In the two-star category, the Pressoir d’Argent run by Gordon Ramsay is a must. Established in the Grand Hotel, Le Pressoir d’Argent offers a taste of high-end, traditional cuisine! “I want to highlight the wonderful products of our beautiful region and show that rustic style food can and must have its place in French and international haute cuisine,” explains the chef. His flagship dish? “a mature faux-filet of Limousin beef, grilled with vine shoots, baby lettuce, and Bordelaise sauce.”
