The restaurant is comprised of several rooms, all with rustic vintage furniture giving is a French farmhouse feel.

If you dine at one of the dozen hard-to-reserve tables, take note of the grandfather clock at the back of the restaurant. It has a secret…opening up to an entirely hidden room where the nightly speakeasy is a Bordeaux hot spot. The lunch menu is a particularly good value, too, for a high quality gastronomic restaurant. As usual with the restaurants we seek out, the menu changes often and is based on local, fresh seasonal ingredients. It has just two choices each for the starter, main and dessert. Symbiose , 4 Quai des Chartrons.
The restaurant has a lunch service, which can be seated indoors in their chic restaurant space with an open kitchen where you can see the chef and staff preparing the meals, or on the outdoor terrace when the weather is nice. For now, we can highly recommend the restaurant for either lunch or dinner. We tried the shrimp tartare in a yuzu cream and a poached egg with ham. We also had the veal with potatoes.
The meal was finished off with a little plate of chocolate bliss with six different chocolate creations from the pastry chef. Our friends who we dined with for lunch also ordered the lamb shank and nodded in agreement between bites.

Located on the quay near the Porte de la Monnaie , Le Taquin has a lovely outdoor terrace where you can watch the world go by on the Garonne.

Ask Chef Bouhabib about his cigar collection. Arcada , 13 Rue de la Rousselle. Crab comes in a close second when it comes to our favorite foods and we miss the days of cracking apart Alaskan King Crab legs. Le Crabe Marteau is an excellent way to curb our crab cravings. The red andwhite checkered tables have the crab hammers and presses for you to get your crab out of its shell, and a big bib protects you and your friends as you hammer away.
We may have had a few moments a la Pretty Woman , but instead of slippery little escargot flying across the restaurant, it was bits of crab. We grabbed a group of friends and, in the name of research, ordered about half of the changing chalkboard menu. Spider crab was in season on our visit and in addition to the half spider crab served with six oysters, we also tried the crab and saffron risotto and the crab au gratin. Make a reservation on LaFourchette. Mussels are an invasive species for oyster farmers in the Bassin of Arcachon.
So while oysters appear on menus all over the city, moules frites are a little harder to find. Mussels fans should head to Les Moules du Cabanon on the quay. As the name implies, this restaurant specializes in gigantic pots of steaming mussels — and at a very reasonable price, too. We highly recommend the curry and Basquaise, which are our go-to favorites.
We order one of each and trade half way through for a bit of each. Les Moules du Cabanon , 12 Quai Richelieu. The menu changes seasonally, but you can expect local products from the Aquitaine like beef de Baza, a local breed of beef that is basically the wagyu beef of France and oysters from Cap Ferret.

You can see wheels of Parmigiano-Reggiano and legs of prosciutto. Wander the giant wine cellar to make your selection, including many of our of Italian favorites.
La Mama is totally unpretentious and the paper-topped tables remind us of restaurants in Italy. They specialize in pizzas, though do have several other Italian specialties on their menu.

The lunch tasting menu includes the cold starter of the day, the hot dish of the day and three accompaniments. Note that the menu is only offered in French in this restaurant, which we did note seemed to be a complaint of a number of English speaking TripAdvisor reviews.

Madame Pang is a still fairly new glamorous dim sum bar that opened on Rue de la Devise, steps away from Place de la Bourse in the heart of Bordeaux. The small bites are prepared and served up in the traditional bamboo baskets.
For dinner, we selected 6 menu items in all and it was more than enough for the two of us. It can be hard to decide with 14 different dim sum, plus other small plates and finger foods to choose from. We highly recommend the Peking Ravioli, a ravioli stuffed with a juicy free range chicken and topped with parmesan and chives. Not quite what we were expecting, but a definitive favorite is the Xiao Long Bao from the rare dim sum menu. And the sweet and sour pork is flavorful, but not too sweet.
They also have a good selection of Asian beers, and as this is Bordeaux, a nice wine list. Madame Pang , 16 Rue de la Devise.
