Eating out in Bordeaux can surely be one of the highlights of your vacation; but the restaurants of Bordeaux are not just about flavors and scents, they can serve up lots of fun, too. In the heart of 18th-century Bordeaux, surrounded by art galleries and shops, Le Mably attracts gastronomes, hipsters, politicians, journalists, and locals interested in the fun, elegant atmosphere of a brasserie de luxe. The duck-intensive menu lists salad of duck necks stuffed with pistachios, confit of duckling, magret of duckling, and, of course, duck liver. Pay special attention to the comprehensive wine list, rich in esoteric burgundies.
For a taste of England right in the heart of Bordeaux, visit The Cambridge Arms. This pub is in the middle of the Place des Chartrons, and specializes in typically English dishes such as chicken and mushroom pie and fish and chips, with various crumbles and cheesecakes for dessert. The joyful and lively atmosphere draws rave reviews, as does the friendly staff and the good selection of imported draft beers. Darts, quiz nights and live music are organized throughout the week, just like at an English pub.
Set in the heart of Bordeaux, Le Santosha is the perfect place to sample French hospitality and tasty Thai fare. The restaurant serves up a number of savory delights in a rather kitsch atmosphere. But what really attracts people to this place is the sound of music. The restaurant features a number of bands of different genres including soft rock, pop and even folk that entertain the crowd while they sample the menu. Whatever your pleasure, you'd be hard-pressed to remain seated at these lively Bordeaux restaurants.
