Christmas Market & Dinner at ‘Entrecote’ 4 December 2014


As arranged we all met up at 18h30 outside the tourist information office, and then we made our way across the road to the 19th Bordeaux Christmas Market on the allée de Tourny. The area was covered with wooden chalets and fake snow. Organised in neat rows, the small wooden chalets were a great place to find gifts, decorative items, costume jewellery, gourmet delicacies and, best of all, the appearance of Santa Claus! It is a fabulous venue, full of twinkling lights and fine treats to nibble, not to mention plenty of vin chaud, which was the first stop for many of our party :o)

A couple of hours later we made our way to the Entrêcôte. We were soon all inside, seated, chatting and ready to eat. The interior with its tartan walls, gloss black ceilings and yellow table linen is well presented. There are just 3 questions at l’Entrecôte: how do you want your steak cooked, what colour wine and what dessert do you want? The meal started with dressed green salad with walnuts, followed by fabulously tender steak in amazing sauce and shoestring fries, and then dessert.

A very memorable evening, much enjoyed by all. Many thanks to the organisers, Colette and Norma B
