Obligatory Dining Locale

Located steps from the landmark tower in St Emilion, don't be surprised to see local wine makers as well as visitors. Seating in two dining rooms, bar or outdoor area. Personally, it is an obligatory stop for Confit de Canard, or a simple omelette with local mushrooms and a salad, but the menu is... read more

Outstanding wines by the bottle list with a wide range of pricing to fit almost any budget. Good bistro style food that go well with the wine offerings. Comfortable interior with two main rooms. Nice bar area. Seems to be filled with locals so you know you are in the right place for a quality meal at a reasonable price.

We were there twice. Great tables with wine labels. Some plates were great others very disppointing. Whatch out when you choose. The wine list is huge but many wines are not available, even the very local ones. Prices are fair.

My husband and I enjoyed two lovely dinners earlier this month. Both meals were interesting, tasty and well cooked. The wines were extensive and those we tried were delicious. Service was very good and the ambience fun even though we were out of season. Would thoroughly recommend and would return if back in st Emilion.

We had found L'Envers du Decor on a previous visit to St. Emilion and had enjoyed a night cap in the courtyard after dinner one evening. This time we decided to make a reservation for dinner. As expected it was very busy (being a Saturday evening). The menu offered plenty of options and the variety of wine by the glass... More

A varied menu with some really nice dishes. An amazing choice of wine by the glass and some really original table tops. Friendly staff.

I had the chance to dine here while taking a short break from visiting many Chateaux in the area. The town town of St. Emilion in and of itself is idyllic. Stepping in, wasbt sure what to expect given its location in a hotbed anthill of tourist during the high season (in the summer). I was absolutely in love with... More

First visited this characterful, decent-value restaurant in the Wine Disneyland of Saint-Emilion in the winter of 1999/2000 ... the waiters were despondent about losing the rugby world cup final to Australia. The food was amazing, starting with an 'AAAAA' Andouillette, a tripe sausage approved by the Association Amicale des Amateurs d'Andouillette Authentique ... A few glasses of Cuvée Fanny (still...

We had pre-booked this restaurant for a group of approx 20 persons with the clear understanding that we only had a limited time for lunch and were on a fixed schedule for wine tasting at a St. Emilion chateau. We had to and did all pre-order the same menu prior to arrival. We were seated outdoors which had a nice... More
