Nama, a Fresh Bordeaux Wine Concept

To experience the ultimate in French fusion bistro cuisine accompanied by top quality wines at a reasonable price, get down to Nama on 24 rue Lafaurie Monbadon.

Pioneering a brand new concept of charging an entrance fee, Nama is more like an exclusive members club than a traditional restaurant. For a cover charge of just 20 euros, you can enjoy stylish contemporary Franco/Japanese fusion cuisine of the highest quality for the price of a standard bistro.

Nama is run by Patrick and Junko, a French/Japanese couple who have worked closely with both French and internationally renowned Michelin starred chefs (Jeff Ramsey - Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo/World Sushi champion; and Paul Gouzien who has worked for Nicolas Magie of the Saint James, Bouliac) to create their unique fusion of the best of French and Japanese cuisine. All products and ingredients are from the local region and have been given an innovative and delicate Japanese twist. Their wide variety of dishes have been paired with an extensive and exclusive regional, French and world wine selection.

Patrick the owner spent more than 8 years working for a Bordeaux-based wine merchant in Japan is an experienced and passionate oenologist. His carefully chosen modern wine selection includes Grand Cru classé alongside a subtle range of hidden gems from regional and world wines.


Nama also hosts a "Wine Makers Dinner" on a regular basis - you can meet and dine with the Chateau owners while enjoying wine pairing with dishes specially created for the wine selection. You can taste and learn about wine directly from Chateau owners - the perfect way to improve your wine knowledge in the world's wine capital. Please contact the restaurant for further details.

Come and enjoy the very best regional-fusion food Bordeaux has to offer and get a master class in wine from Patrick and his team of multilingual staff. Welcome to NAMA.
