You couldn’t ask for a better local restaurant than this – a huge selection of over 100 wines from Côtes de Bourg and Côtes de Blaye. And there’s no wine list; you just wander up to the cabinet where they are all displayed, and chat with a waiter about what to choose. They have, among others, Gerard Depardieu’s ‘Mon Vignoble en Blayais’, and one of Bourg’s most famous wines, Château Roc de Cambes (neither property is open for individual visits). The food is good too; thin crust pizzas and some excellent bistro fare, all served in an airy, welcoming setting with an outside terrace in summer. No set menus, but well priced à la carte food, with plenty of daily specials. There is live music on Saturday nights and Sunday lunchtimes.

Useful information: Menus/formules from €12 at lunchtime and from €20 in the evening
