We ate here in the square under a huge mimosa tree and drank enchanting white wines. It was light until nearly ten pm. Magically fun. Bustling, busy, hectic, waitstaff running! We all, of course, were calm and happy and drinking in the atmosphere along with the local wines. They have a great wine list. However, should you visit during a... More

We ordered the set menu - terrine, supréme de poulet (I probably misspelt that) and dessert. The terrine was good! The chicken was over cooked and the sauce was flavourless. Then they seemed to forget about us completely - we waited over an hour and still had no dessert. We asked one of the staff who said he was just... More

We too visited here and got caught in a tremendous thunder storm, but once again staff were very professional (despite some drips getting through the umbrellas!). We ordered a meat and cheese plate and some Camembert roti to share. Staff were friendly and advised on wines to sample without being pushy. The food was lovely - simple, but fresh and... More

One of st emillions pleasant tasting shop somelliers steered us here as 'the place I would have lunch' and a great recommendation it was. Light rain turned to torrential downpour causing the 18 or so patrons seated outdoors under umbrellas to reconfigure in order not to get wet. The service, despite the massive disruption this caused (and which continued each... More

We were checking in at Gatwick at 5.30am so by the time we arrived in St Emilion we were ready to chill out and enjoy a relaxed lunch in the September sunshine. Le Bouchon fitted the bill perfectly with a Prix Fixe menu of melon soup (like sunshine in a bowl) followed by duck and fabulous chips washed down with... More

It doesn't look like it's worth stopping at but DO! Great service on a nice evening with an excellent fixed price menu. Simple and great value.

We had lunch on the lovely bustling terrace of this terrace with our 2 young children in August during a visit to the stunning medieval town of Saint-Emilion. The set lunch menu of 3 courses consisted of a nice home-made pate with pickles, a delicious confit of chicken with potatoes and a very nice choice of desert. We ordered 3... More
