Delicious and affordable lunch in a marvelous setting. Nice personal in an informal style. We were 14 (adults and children) and all had a great time. I will go back!

We cycled 21miles to get here and it was worth it yet again.The ambience is beautiful. The food excellent and the wine , very St Emilion! The service was a bit slow but if you remember that you are in France, then there is no problem. We had the menu de jour and loved it. We are returning next week....

Our meal followed a wine tasting tour that went on just a little too long. In my opinion a good tour is a fast tour! Then our dinner service was painfully slow. We were told that the kitchen couldn't cope with the number and size of tables as everyone ordered at once! They plied us with free wine which was... More

A local friend of us took us there for lunch and he suggested that we let the Chef decide what to have. We had 5 courses and they were absolutely amazing, great taste, creative presentation. Great wine pairing too.

Set in the heart of the wine lands just a few miles from St Emilion,Château Candale is home to some stunningly produced barrels and wines. The restaurant that now runs alongside the winemakers offers a stunning exterior setting to enjoy good food and wines just inches from where the very Merlot grapes are grown and wine produced. The food created... More

At the heart of a winefield just outside Saint Emilion, the restaurant is located in the Chateaux Candale and is doing a good job in the kitchen! We had 4 courses and wine from the chateaux (SCandale :) ) and everything was delicious.

You can almost reach out and pick the grapes at L’Atelier de Candale, the pretty outdoor seating backs up to the vineyards – guaranteeing beautiful vistas and alluring sunsets. The interior of the restaurant is artfully decorated and features both a lunch and dinner menu. Dishes include Pork with Coriander and Ginger Sauce, Scallops in Mille-Feuille Pastry, Ravioli of Porcini... More
