Le Pressoir d Argent
The dining room is immaculate and glorious. It is decorated with 18th century flourishes which whisks you back into a dining experience of that most civilized time for which UNESCO celebrates Bordeaux architecture. There are also more contemporary touches, like black and white photography of underwater sea life on the walls.
Le Pressoir D'Argent also hosts special wine dinners regularly with some of the most famous names in Bordeaux such as Mouton Rothschild, Chateau Palmer, Chateau Angelus and Pichon Longueville.
The restaurant is famous for Nibaudeau's inspired preparation of dishes like Dublin Bay prawns with caviar d'Aquitaine served with crème fraiche, crispy cucumber and a crispy seaweed waffle.
The name, Le Pressoir d`Argent, comes from the `Silver Press`made especially for the restaurant by the famous French silversmith house, Christofle.
The press (the actual Pressoir D'Argent) is a pure silver lobster press that is one of only five in the world. The other four presses are in Berlin, Brussels and Paris.
