Better than expected

Went with French friends which may have helped but this place was OK. For sure it is a tourist restaurant but the 3 course menu was good and with a cru St Emilion bottle the bill was around 135 euros for three of us including coffee. Not cheap but this is in the centre of St Emilion!

We were wandering through this delightful town on a cold and wet evening after eight hours of driving and wondering where we should eat when a young lady approached us and 'sold' us her restaurant. It was a great choice. Wonderful menu and wine list and really good service. We ate Mille feuille de crabe followed by the most perfectly... More

We went there for lunch during our visit to St. Emilion. The pave de saumon was bad, soup too creamy. The salads were good and the rillette tasty.The value for money is good; and must say it was very clean.

We visited Saint Emilion which is a lovely,very interesting town and really worth visiting. Le Bouchon restaurant is a horrible place with unfriendly staff working there. We went there just to have a cup of good coffee in a very hot day. It turned out to be a nightmare. We were seated outdoor under mouldy parasol and because we didn't... More

Walking through the Town just after noon we were easily able to get a table for two at lunchtime although I imagine in season it will be a tad busier! It does just what it says on the tin, good and easy on the wallet.

If you are looking for some places for having light dinner in St.Emilion. This would be a good choice. We tried the Escargot (snails) and the salad (eggplants) are all delicious. Siting in square at the late nite in the city of St.Emilion surrounding by the medieval buildings. Excellent atmosphere.

Although busy staff were welcoming and efficient. Good choice of menus as able to choose from pizzeria menu or restaurant menu. As we only wanted a light lunch we chose from snack menu. Portions were more than ample and food of reasonable quality. Lots of outside seating on square in front of monolithic church.

When the waiter told us thàt it shared the kitchen with the pizzeria warning bells should have sounded, but they didn't. We paid for that. A salad with OK dressing and the kind of chicken you get precooked in Tesco, quite nice tuna with a truly revolting dressing and a reasonable steak. A bottle of wine and 76 euros lighter... More

Great place for families as two restaurants combine to serve a common seating area in the square. So you can mix and match, choosing from the Bistrot menu for the adults and from the other restaurant menu which is more oriented to pizzas, burgers etc. for kids. What a great idea! Not having children with us, we opted for the... More
