Vin Chaud, Steak, Tinsel and Christmas Market: Bordeaux, Friday 13th December at 1900


Bordeaux, Friday 13th December at 1900


Join in the festive spirit and come along with us for a visit to the Bordeaux Christmas market in Allées de Tourny on Friday, 13th December at 18:30 (please note the revised meet6 time) followed by dinner at “L’Entrecote” at 20:30 to enjoy delicious steak with their trademark delicious sauce, copious frites and, if you have room, an appetising dessert.

Have a wander around the Christmas market, packed with stalls. In previous years the men never make it past the first stall, of which there are many, selling vin chaud !

The Bordeaux Christmas market is a must see, an integral part of the magical atmosphere in the run up to Christmas !

The wooden chalets set up for the occasion make up a charming picture of a village where everything can be found: gifts, sweets, gourmet food, Christmas decorations for the home, candles, toys, fashion, accessories, designer jewellery, linen and crafts made by the local artisans ( and vin chaud! )

Indulge in a little Christmas shopping. Or maybe just enjoy a glass or three of vin chaud and chat with friends!


Following our visit to the market we have arranged to eat dinner at the always popular restaurant L’Entrecôte to enjoy a steak smothered with sa sauce fameuse.

The price is 19.50€ for steak, frites and salad. Desserts are 5,50€ to 6€. House wine is 16€ per bottle and also availble by the glass. Coffee is 1,60€. L’Entrecote is extremely popular with a fun atmosphere and never disappoints.
