Bordeaux – as everyone knows – is the world’s major wine industry capital. The wine economy in the metropolitan area takes in around €14.5 billion each year, with wine having been produced in the region since the 8th century.

The historic part of the city is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as “an outstanding urban and architectural ensemble” of the 18th century.

And the natural sum of great wine and great history is, of course, great food. So take a culinary cruise around our top picks for eating out in the picturesque area.

    Nice article, it’s always good to have a few good culinary spots to visit.

    BTW St-Emilion top 3 restaurants are not in that list: Plaisance (belongs to the Perse family, from Château Pavie), Logis de la Cadene (belongs to the de Bouard family, from Château Angélus) and Les belles perdrix (belongs to Château Troplong-Mondot).

    Anyone visiting St-Emilion should pay one of those 3 top restaurants, or the 3 of them, a visit.
