Great place for a break before winery.

I love this place atmosphere. The food is good and ideal locate in the heart of Saint Emilion. A good break before or between winery trip.

We had dinner here twice recently and it was very good food both times. Staff were very helpful and polite. Food came quickly and the wines were good too!

We have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The tables and walls are covered with wooden wine-box fronts with the local chateau names on them. The food is typical French. The only small complaint is the plating it lacks finesse but is compensated by flavour. They have a massive wine list that are reasonably priced.

We came here in November. We booked, but out of season it isn't necessary. However, as we arrived early, we got the best place right in front of the fire. We chose the côte à l'os for two and it was to die for! Best thing is the choice of wines - by the glass - and the possibility to... More

Excellent service. The fire was roaring and it was 70 degrees outside, but they were trying to make a nice ambiance for us. Food was good, not great!

So it looks and promises a top notch traditional bistro but delivers and average plate or two. Overpriced wines didn't help the medicine go down neither. Look elswhere

We ate lunch here during a one day wine trip to Saint Emilion. Loved the restaurant and the food was great. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was very good. I would of loved to go there for Dinner as I bet it is even better. If you are in town I would suggest dining here.

We ate here twice on our recent visit to St. Emilion. The first by choice, the second because it was one of the few places open on a national holiday. Our first experience was best, possible because we were able to make a reservation. My wife had fish and I had the rabbit confit the first night. Both were excellent.... More

We were recommended to eat at this restaurant. One of us ordered the duck breast and the other had the entrecôte; both arrived cold. We returned them both and wait s 10 minutes for them to return. When they were returned to us, they were still Luke warm. We were not charged for the entrecôte. It was definitely not a... More

A lovely restaurant in St Emilion that is open throughout the year and is therefore very popular with locals. The service was good and the food great. Would love to return
