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

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
