Last updated:

The arrival of summer, the sun of the holidays, weekends with family and outings with friends… This is the best time to gather around a beautiful plate in a trendy restaurant offering tasty dishes. With cities such as Bordeaux, Biarritz and Arcachon, the inhabitants and holidaymakers of New Aquitaine enjoy a panorama of choice. Between historic restaurants and newer establishments, the chic and prestigious clientele has an exhaustive list of succulent addresses to enjoy a preferential summer setting.

Restaurants, Bars and Rooftops: the must-see places of summer in New Aquitaine

Hosting a VIP clientele, Southwest chefs are working to offer their customers a complete and tasty menu. The prestigious clientele also appreciates the tranquillity and beauty of these places. Café de la Plage – Chez Pierre in Arcachon has gradually become an address favoured by big bosses, elected officials and stars of all kinds. Located near the city of Bordeaux and with stunning views of Cap Ferret, the restaurant has already hosted several personalities such as the famous singer Pascal Obispo, or the former footballer of the French team, Jean-Pierre Papin (Ballon d’Or France Football in 1991). The latter is installed in Arcachon, it is present every summer in the Basin. Last August, we were even able to meet him at the Moorish Park to play a game of petanque open to the public.

In addition, other addresses are available for a chic aperitif on the beach in the Southwest. The Bathers in Biarritz are a good example. Rooftop offers stunning views of the beach and an idyllic setting for a drink with friends and family. The Bathers also welcome indoors, so that guests can enjoy the restaurant’s cuisine. Another prime rooftop offering tourists the opportunity to enjoy the city of Bordeaux is the Mama Shelter. Located in the centre of Bordeaux, the hotel has an excellent restaurant that also serves as a bar on selected occasions. The Bordeaux clientele appreciates this place to enjoy the sunset in particular. Thomas Boisserie (Director General of the NGO Planet Emergency) regularly frequented the site. In 2013, Alain Juppé (Mayor of the City of Bordeaux) invited other political figures such as Valérie Pécresse, Jean Pierre Raffarin and Dominique Bussereau.

Seaside terraces, the favourite setting for celebrities

The Hotel-Restaurant La Corniche (in Arcachon) enjoys an excellent location to welcome tourists as well as VIP guests. Located near the Pilat dune, the place is owned by former French XV rugby player William Téchoueyres. The place is elegant and excellent for your professional encounters. In the same way, the restaurant at Hortense also offers a reference space. Located at the tip of Cap Ferret, many celebrities such as actress Audrey Tautou or presenter Michel Denisot, come to taste seafood and enjoy the breathtaking view offered by the restaurant. Last address in Aquitaine and not least, the Club Beach Perreire. Having received personalities such as the singer Callogero or the former presenter of the newscast Patrick Poivre D’Arvor, the restaurant of the club regularly receives in Arcachon, a very nice clientele.
