Berthus – this is a very casual place in the middle of Bordeaux. they serve typical french food from the south-west of France. this is a very simple place that is not overly decorated. the food is a bargain at $22 euros for a 2 course meal. and the wines offered are also inexpensive but tasty. if you are looking for a fun casual place filled with young people from all over the world then definitely stop here. your pocketbook will be glad that you did.

The Vintage Bar – while we were touring around old town Bordeaux we stumbled upon this great little place named the vintage bar. the place is usually filled with 20 somethings we were told but we were lucky due to the rain it was almost empty. grab a beer sit outside and watch the world walk by. they do have food also but we did not eat any. the bar staff was also very friendly. next time I am in Bordeaux I will definitely stop in for a beer or 3
