Good but pricey

We had a lovely dinner. We chose the set menu. The fois gras was exceptional. The wine list was not at all vast and bottles started at €50. Not the type of place to spend so much on wine as it is not a winery and does not have a view. The fillet was cooked to my liking but the... read more

It was clear the fact we spoke English and very little French was our downfall. It took 20 minutes to even have our drinks order taken after arrival, we were constantly ignored when signalling to the waiters while they cleaned dirty tables and set places for dinner while it was still lunch. We were given no cutlery with our main... More

We have been travelling for a long time and enjoying too much food so we're looking for a simple meal. We were delighted with La Cote as the fish of the day was delicious and came with lovely vegetables. Our only complaint is we were wanting a white wine and there were only 2 choices. One at 21€ and one... More

we came here with a group of people the day before a great wedding party and they managed to serve 60 of us with very good food and wine. its not the best meal you will have but its a quality place and not expensive with everything you would expect in a place like St Emilion.

We visited Saint Emilion during the Christmas period and we're unlucky at lunch when a lot of the restaurants were closed. The food was average. I had a goats cheese salad that I could barely eat. My partner's meal was ok. To be honest the service was the worst part of this place. The waitress obviously didn't want to be... More

Seeing that we were visiting Saint-Emilion we were expecting to pay a lot for a meal. As it turns out we did not have to. we took the 26 Euro menu and enjoyed it (Foie gras, magret de canard, chees platter) . The kids had pasta which they enjoyed. the service was great and we were properly greeted. We were... More

We went in a group of 9 and had the 24.50 euro menu, with sauvignon blanc with the fish and a satellite of Saint-Emilion which was on special offer for the meat and cheese. The food was of good quality and in generous portions - 6 scallops in a starter and at least 6oz of beef for those who ate... More

The meal we ordered was very tasty and really worth its 16,50€. The fish soup was not the best I have ever eaten but the entrecôte was medium cooked as it was asked and the chips and vegetables were tasty as well. Only the wine we wanted to order was not available. So we took one that was more expansive... More

Avoid this at all costs. We were recommended this restaurant so thought we would take our chance. I wish we had read the reviews first as it was the worst meal we have had in France, combined with appalling, rude and arrogant service. Also, be warned....the owner of this restaurant also appears to own the bar/cafe across the road. We... More
