Bordeaux's rich and fertile wine country has become famous for the vines that are cultivated here, but the region bears far more fruit than just its wines. The unique location of Bordeaux means there are plenty of culinary influences: the flavours of the sea trickle inland; basque traditions travel north; classic French cuisine lends its expertise.

All of these traditions and more have a bearing on the realm of gastronomy in the city of Bordeaux, and this contributes to its reputation as one of the most interesting of our luxury holiday destinations. Come with us to discover this diversity with this list of Bordeaux's Michelin star restaurants for a taste of top notch service.
