Reasonably priced, but just ok

Had dinner last night at l'Envers du Decor in St. Emilion and while the service was friendly and the prices were reasonable, I thought that food was just ok. I had an excellent appetizer of crab stuffed cannelloni served with guacamole and sun dried tomatoes. It got my hopes up, but my veal main... read more

The staff are great and the food is fantastic and not overly expensive. It is very popular but is not a tourist trap and all the food is home made. We ate there twice.

L'envers du décor can be described as the least of the "tourist traps" in this wonderful setting, as witnessed by the number of local patrons. Outstanding is the wine list, ranging from good to heavenly (pricewise also!). A recommendation is to go for a plate of "charcuterie" (dried sausages & ham) that you wash down with consecutive choices of wine... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant - we also had lunch there in 2013, after buying a case of Bordeaux for shipping in the cave across the walkway. I thought that my enjoyment of the restaurant, which on that visit was packed with people and we sat at the bar, might have had something to do with feeling... More

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 extensive with seasonal options, too. Wine... 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.

I have never seen a restaurant that has a wine encyclopedia as their wine list! Impresive. Food was good, but not wao as we were told. Just another place.

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
