Brasserie Le Bordeaux

Top choice cafe in Saint-Pierre, Saint-Paul & the Triangle d'Or

To dine à la Gordon Ramsay without breaking the bank, reserve a table at his elegant belle époque brasserie with an interesting Anglo-French hybrid cuisine – local Arcachon oysters, fish and chips, Gascon pork pie with piccalilli, braised beef chuck, hand-cut tartare – and a parasol-shaded pavement terrace overlooking busy place de la Comédie. Weekend brunch (€68) is a local hot date.

Otherwise, content yourself with the signature house cocktail, Le Bordeaux (sparkling Crémant de Bordeaux with orange and lime zest, violet syrup and local Lillet rosé) – any time of day – on the sublime terrace.
