An old favourite, my latest visit proved to extremely enjoyable. The weather allowed a lovely evening in the garden. The staff are charming and instantly swapped to English when my French no was longer fit for purpose! I had the menu decouverte which was cheap at €90 given the multitude of delicate artistic dishes. The sommelier is very helpful and... More

We really like the sommelier in this restaurant. The food was not very fresh and the style of all the dishes extremely poor: no amazing vegetables, very heavy with lot of cookies. Everything is fade and dry. We were definitely not satisfied. The stuff doesn’t care about this part - you pay 440 Euros for 3 and you go home.... More

This small but elegant restaurant was a refined dinner experience. We were in the upstairs dining area as there was a party in the mail room, see the picture. The other couple that had a table reserved cancelled, so we had the room to ourselves. Since we wanted to taste all they had, so did the full tasting menu. It... More

We went for dinner here on our first day in Bordeaux. They offer a tasting menu for 90 euro per person and a more elaborate one for 130 euro. If you chose a la carte, it seems you have to take a starter (about 40 euro) and a main (40-50 euro). I was hungry and went for a la carte... More

This restaurant seems to be one of the best kept secrets by the French living in Bordeaux and it may not be as well know among visitors, but it is truly exceptional. The price is somewhat high, but you certainly get what you pay for. I recently went for dinner to le Pavillon for the birthdays of my son and... More

Let me start from the end: this young chef is an absolute superstar and I hope he gets all the recognition he deserves. Maybe out of laziness after a long trip, we uncharacteristically opted for the tasting menu and I am so glad we did. Most of the dishes were fish-based, perfectly balanced in terms of cooking styles and veggie... More

Hard to imagine this stunning setting if you judge from outside, just beside a banal bus stop. Certainly worth a visit and great value for money compared to other much more well-known restaurants in the city. Well worth another Michelin star ! Enjoy "sans modération"

So glad I visited this restaurant before I leave Bordeaux. I did book in advance. The setting is beautiful (do ask not to have a table at the back as its not as attractive as the rest of the restaurant). The location is a bit awkward but its worth it. All dishes were delicious for the set lunch, 40 euros... More

Le Pavillon des Boulevards is a little gem in Bordeaux. The chefs Denis and Nelly Franc have a lovely place that features indoor and outdoor seating in a verdant terrace. The cuisine is best described as fine gastronomy using the best of the local produce in the area. The restaurant cuisine and service is excellent, and my experience reminded me... More

We came for a lunch and what a surprise! On the outside there is not much to see, just a busy street , but the inside is really a luxurious "salle a manger".We had the fixed luncheon for 40 euros (including 3 courses , a glass of wine and coffee with "friandises".). This was an exceptional lunch considering the price-quality... More

Located on the rue Croix-de-Seguey in Bordeaux, this intimate and romantic restaurant is a top dining destination for discerning foodies. Run by the husband and wife team of Denis and Nelly Franc, the cream-coloured dining rooms at Le Pavillion des Boulevards have an elegant ambience and are decorated with quirky paintings of kitchen utensils. The restaurant boasts both a garden and a sunny terrace, and is renowned for its hearty French fare. We love the caviar served in chesnut-flavoured cream; the grilled crayfish with blood sausage and cider jus; and the fillets of turbot served with Parmesan risotto. The restaurant's sommelier is extremely knowledgeable, and Le Pavillion des Boulevards hosts regular wine tasting events.
