Open-air cafés and restau­rants on Bordeaux’s right bank

Bordeaux Wine Trip - - Bordeaux Wine Routes -

Bordeaux na­tives make the best of the beau­ti­ful sum­mer evenings all along the Angéliques Park be­tween the Cha­ban-del­mas and the the Stone bridges. Restau­rants built on stilts or sim­ple open-air cafés of­fer them a com­plete change of scenery. The old­est among them, Chez Al­riq (www.laguinguet­techezal­riq.com) is a key venue of the al­ter­na­tive cul­ture of the city: you can go there for drinks, to share a snack, lis­ten to a con­cert or for a spot of out­door danc­ing! A “docks” at­mos­phere and a fish menu at Les Marins de la Lune, next door to an or­ganic beer brasserie (open­ing sum­mer 2016). More tra­di­tional but just as bu­colic, the river­side ter­race at La Petite Gironde (www.lapetite­gironde.fr) of­fers an un­in­ter­rupted view of the fa­cades of the build­ings on the op­po­site banks. Plus two more ur­ban ad­dresses: the very chic Es­ta­cade, has good food and one of the most stun­ning views of the Place de la Bourse (www.es­ta­cade-restau­rant. com) and the Café du Port lo­cated in a former boat shed con­verted into a restau­rant, an ideal spot to ad­mire the sun­set over the Saint-michel spire and the quay­sides. It is also a cosy place to spend pleas­ant win­ter evenings (www.lecafedu­port.com)
