Good food, good price

Good food and good price. The daily menu is better from the main mane. Views to the main plaza are great. Staff is friendly. Good wine selection

We stopped here for a coffee after spending the morning walking and being amazed by the attractions at St Emilion. The service was fast and friendly and the coffee was great.

Amelia Canta is located in the central square in St Emilion. The food was very reasonably priced, had generous portions and was very tasty. The service was friendly and prompt. The wine was also reasonably priced with many half bottle options. Although we were inside as it was winter, it is the sort of venue that would be fantastic to... More

We had a lovely lunch here on a very hot and busy day. Dogs, like everywhere in France are welcome and the plates of food were generous and very tasty. The view of the old church walls sat in a great place was a great treat. The staff were great and looked as they were having a fun time. Interestingly... More

Located in a central square in heart of St. Emilion, outdoor seating with lots going on around you. Casual dining restaurant, waiters friendly and spoke some English. Sun's heat diffused by umbrella and some natural trees. Ordered an omelet, came quickly and was light and delicious. Can view the clock tower from this location. Entire square seems to be on...

The location is lovely as it is in the centre of the town. However, if you are foodie, I would suggest you to go somewhere else. While my friends ordered set lunch, I decided to treat myself better and picked my favourite dishes from the a la carte menu. I ordered a foie gra terrine, an onion soup and steak... More

Sitting in the shadow of the 'Clocher de l'eglise Monolithe' Amelia Canta is a great spot to sit and watch the world and Saint Emilion go by, grab a coffee or something a little stronger, then sit and soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful town. Service was attentive although we had to make our intentions very noticeable, and getting... More

Located in a square in St. Emilion, this nothing fancy restaurant served up a great cappuccino and a very good galette for breakfast. They served quickly and with no fan fare, not that I was looking for any. The staff was pleasant so we were pleased with our quick breakfast.
