We found the restaurant by chance before having read the trip advisor reviews. The service was fine - no problems at all. The set menus we had were good value compared to the other restaurants we saw in the village. Foie gras, confit de canard, tournedos - all of these were cooked well. The potatoes that a few reviewers have... More

Nobody smiles at this restaurant. The customers aren't happy because the food is awful by French standards and the service surly at best. And the staff aren't happy for reasons that remain mysterious. One of our waitresses was too busy worrying about whether clients at another table had paid (they had) to answer our questions. If you want to enjoy... More

We were seated onside even though there were seats outside which we requested. Then the waiter came to us and what I had selected was finished for the evening.....so I asked him to return please. The menu was entirely in French....I'm ok with that but needed more time to fibs an entree. He didn't return to us although he did... More

This was our very first lunch in France after a long absence from a country we love. We were expecting "cuisine traditionnelle" we did not get it. It started with the salad: the melted cheese on top of a piece of toast that came straight out of a package and sat atop lettuce did not bode well for the rest... More

We sat outside on a terrace overlooking one of the steep pathways of St Emilion. The service was good and our French attempts were expected. The food was amazing and for a great price. We had one of the three course set menus (16.50€) which left us extremely satisfied and needing to walk it off. Best potato chips in France!

We sat outside (no problem to smoke!) in the evening on the small terrace overlooking the street which was a great location. The staff were helpful, friendly and attentive. The service was quick - a little more time between courses would have been appreciated. We had lobster soup and foie gras with grapes followed by lampreys a la bordelaise and... More

This small restaurant, with 'cuisine traditionelle, was a delight. It's location is a little difficult as it's on a steep cobbled street but worth the effort to get to it. It offers several 3 course set menus of different prices. We chose a median priced menu of traditional dishes. With a bottle of house wine, the meal cost about 80... More

This restaurant is located in this great little medieval village and on the steepest little cobblestone alley we have ever been, not recommended for any high heels unless you are ready to offer a romantic shoulder to lean on. We had diner outside and our waiter was polite and friendly. In May there was no need for reservation as the... More

We ate at La Cote our first night in France. After an overnight flight, drive from Bordeaux and a interesting time trying to find our hotel ( the road were partially closed for the wine harvest festival), I forgot to bring my TripAdvisor list of restaurants - a mistake. We had bean soup, foie gras, lamb chops and a salad.... More
