Being a non-vegetarian myself I hadn’t realized how difficult it would be to find a good vegetarian restaurant in Bordeaux. Then a few weeks ago my sister (who is vegetarian) came to visit me and I began looking for places to go out to eat. In the end we had to settle for regular restaurants with one or two veggie options on the menu. I found it hard to believe, so I’ve since then done a bit more research and testing and have come up with a list of the best 100% vegetarian restaurants in Bordeaux center.
I should mention that if you want to eat in the evening then it will be even trickier to find something veggie specific. So it is important to check opening hours and even better to phone up in advance and book.
36 Rue des Ayres, 33000 Bordeaux
First up a trendy falafel and humous restaurant. Massa, meaning ‘a journey’ in Hebrew, takes our taste buds on a trip to the shores of the Mediterranean with everything made fresh in house.
Musette bicycles and coffee
72 cours de la somme , 33800 Bordeaux
Vegetarian home cooking with a daily ‘plat du jour’ that changes everyday. Delicious cakes and deserts made fresh in house, with the gluten free chocolate brownies being a must-try! Every Friday is Veggie burger day which is highly recommended and on Saturdays a vegetarian brunch is served from 11 :00 until 15 :00.
22 Rue Sainte-Colombe, 33000 Bordeaux
09 83 37 76 10
Probably the most well-known vegetarian restaurant in Bordeaux. Their food is very ‘instagramable’ but also very tasty.
6 Quai de Bacalan, 33300 Bordeaux
The setting does not look like much, but they serve really creative, unique dishes, with a multitude of tastes and flavors. Vegan options are also available and the desserts are also vegan, made by the boss’s wife. Small negative point, you will need to book and even be ready to wait a few days to get in.
11 Rue Camille Sauvageau, 33800 Bordeaux
05 57 71 74 27
A cocktail bar where you can eat proper vegan food. Their Jackfruit burger is amazing.
The Wild Note
20 Rue Sanche de Pomiers, 33000 Bordeaux
09 86 11 63 50
Specializing in vegan burger, including vegan cheese (try the camembert ;). Their set menu is great value for money.
