Bordeaux, November 2018 – Located in the narrow streets of Saint-Pierre quarter, Le Petit Commerce is an iconic seafood restaurant . Oysters are from Cape Ferret, Oleron or Medoc. Fishes and seafood are mostly from nearby French waters, St. Jean de Luz or Normandy.
Le Petit Commerce’s cosy, casual ambience reminded me of 90s Parisian bistros and brassieres. The staff was very friendly, and the menu was reasonably priced.
Mr. King and I were seated at the back of dining room, which opens up into the kitchen. It was fun to observe the chefs cooking various seafoods on the roaring log wood fire.
Oysters from Cap Ferrat – Eur 12
Soupe de Poisson – Eur 10. This fish soup was once of the best I have ever tasted.
Grilled Seabass – Eur 45
Grilled Scallops – Eur 27
Le Petit Commerce is definitely on my list of restaurants to return to.
