Description: Located in the historic city centre in the iconic former Gas Tower building, Mama Shelter Bordeaux welcomes guests with love in hip decor design. As soon as you enter you feel like you’ve stepped into a funky yet ingenious bazaar that entices you to live the MAMA experience with its shop, giant football table, live stage with musical instruments hanging behind it, a photobooth, table tennis tables, guest tables and a show kitchen… The 97 minimalist and technologically connected rooms on 5 floors provide maximum comfort with and 27 inch iMac (free films, X-rated films, photobooth & videobooth, internet, television, computer), and signature décor: printed carpet, cartoon masks, mirrors and illuminated headboards.

Slightly overrated and just a place for a drink. My sum-up for this place which is not a place to go for having dinner. The dishes are nothing special, neither cooked to perfection nor a well use of spices and herbs, tasting like nothing. The location lost its relationship to the food since it is only trying to become an It-Place. The ambiance is dark and uncomfortable. The level of noise is unacceptable and get even worth after 9:30 pm when a DJ starts with its music. The tables are not decorated at all, no tablecloth, nothing. No deko, no candle, naked. The tissues made out of paper. Some tables i would use for outdoor. The staff is friendly but hectic due to the huge number of guests they have to take care for. We cannot recommend that place, sorry.

Friendly staff, good food, good music. There is even an entertainment screen in the bathroom
Too bad they serve their beers in a limonade glass. If you offer Affligem Blond, make sure you have those glasses too

Stuffy, arrogant and unwelcoming! Service is horrendous. Don’t bother wasting your money. We booked a table for 10:30, was told if we aren’t going to eat our table would be given away despite the fact we would have spent more on drinks than food!

We were lucky to go on a really pleasant evening. Remarkable views of Bordeaux from the terrace. It was a bit of a fight to get a table. Had a lovely G&T while the girls had an Aprerol spritz

Decor certainly quirky. Menu varied. Service average and with a slight attitude. I think this place thinks it's "all that" when it really isn't. Gyozas great, Caesar very average with well overdone chicken, vegetarian cobb way way way too mayonnaisey.

Could do with a more diligent kitchen and more friendly staff. Toilets also a bit too much of a hike from the dining room.
