  La Terrasse a Table 23

This restaurant is the best kept secret in Bordeaux...apparently! Tucked away in the back streets between Cours Victor Hugo and Cours Alsace Lorraine, it has an airy and romantic decked terrasse outside shielded from the street by bamboo plants, and the interior is a haven of theatrical retro with influences from the 1950s and 1960s. The menu is a huge chalkboard on the back wall and the wait staff are a little quirky to say the least. This place is the epitome of cool. The food is fine, not the best thing about this restaurant, but certainly decent enough. Try the cocktails...not to be missed! Also open for lunch with a €12 menu.

Favorite Dish: I had a very agreeable oeuf cocotte fois gras starter and a sliced duck main course. I'd say however that the food in the evening is a little pricey for what it is...but can you really put a price on a cool experience?
