About Us

As with every legend, which carries the stature of eternity and of accomplished work, Le Bordeaux Gordon Ramsay has played a part in the history of Bordeaux and France for more than 160 years. In 1850, the private hotel of Sacristie de Rolly, a descendent of Jeanne d’Albret, mother of the King Henry IV, was ingeniously revamped by Victor Louis and became the elegant “Café de Bordeaux”. Generations of locals and Parisians turned it into their headquarters to meet and discuss topical events. It was the spot where Victor Hugo gave his famous speech on Europe, and where Toulouse Lautrec sketched one of the waiters, to create the intriguing Antoine’s portrait.


Following the passing of time prestigious guests, who sat proudly on the terrace of the café, began to admire the new Citröen DS passing by, in place of the old-fashioned Traction-Avant cars. From decade to decade, this historical venue keeps attracting, mesmerising and seducing new crowds, never sacrificing its inherent charm and character.


Respectful of the quality and freshness of local and regional products, the new menu of Le Bordeaux Gordon Ramsay proposes specialities of the South West of France with a British touch. Among the favourites on the Bordeaux Gordon Ramsay’s menu are: the Beef Wellington serving two, three or four people; the famous Fish & Chips; the classic Caesar Salad; the beef tartare and the famous Duck breast. With a cellar of more than 30,000 bottles the wine menu offers a large range including a fine selection of Bordeaux wines. As for the dessert list, choosing will be agony!


Aleksandre Oliver, Executive pastry Chef of the InterContinental Bordeaux – Le Grand Hotel revamped some traditional recipes for the brasserie Le Bordeaux Gordon Ramsay: the very famous and seasonal Strawberry with Chantilly, the French classic Paris Brest, the lemon tart and many more delights to end your meal perfectly.


The hotel interior design, supervised by Jacques Garcia recalls the splendid Belle-Epoque style. He worked with a palette of colours inspired by the deep green glass of wine bottles, the golden hue of sweet white wines and the velvety colour of Bordeaux red wines. Such a harmonious design acts as a tribute to Bordeaux wines and the symbolic hotel venue. The marriage between the elegant style of the design and Gordon Ramsay’s passion for South West French produce gives a new breath to the brasserie Le Bordeaux Gordon Ramsay which has become the chic Bordeaux’s sport for French and British specialities.


The main entrance of the brasserie is on Place de la Comédie but you can reach it from the adjacent hotel lobby. The restaurant is open every day from 7am till 10.30pm.
