Located near the tower by the Tourist Office, this is a bustling, well-run bistro. Indoor and outdoor seating (really large L-shaped terrace in the back-unexpected) Inside is a bit cramped; enjoyed the terrace with the trees and ancient walls. Inside, some quirky, corny signs, and a feeling that this has been here for a very long time (a good thing:)... More

We dined as a family of four at this restaurant on our first night in Saint-Emilion and were not disappointed. Solid menu, good wine selection , helpful staff and a lovely stone encased court yard made this a good night. The food was very good and we all left well satisfied. Caters well to groups and families. Good recommendation from... More

Courtyard bistro, surrounded by 900 year old walls and cool in the heat of the day. Food can be very good, but check you get what you order. Our order had cepes mushrooms subtituted for Truff (Truffles). Would like to think it was a genuine mistake, as the difference in cost is significant. We sent the meal back and the... More

We ate at L'Envers du Decor on a Sunday night and found it to be a good unsophisticated bistro with well prepared food. There is a blackboard which lists the specials of the day and also an English menu for those who want it. The food is generally good, but a little inconsistent. the suprême de poulet and the fillet... More

Recommended by our b&b, we waited over an hour for our main course only for it to turn up stone cold, all 3 plates had to go back and another 15 mins past for it to return luke warm. Total waste of time and money, horrible, avoid.

It doesn't look that special from the out side, but once through the door its amazing. The food is well cooked, and delicious. The terrace where they seat you is out the back in a tranquil oasis. My only moan was we were not told that we could order a bottle of wine and not the glass that showed on... More

It was grey day in St. Emilion so we ate in this restaurant and chose to sit in the courtyard. My brother only had a flimsy shirt on, so he was cold, but the owner kindly lent him a coat. It was just as well, as our food took a very long time to appear. Overall the restaurant was not... More

Did not have a reservation, but the restaurant was able to accommodate us during a busy Friday night. The staff here is extremely friendly which made our dinner very enjoyable. Food took a bit long to come out, however I assume it was due to how busy they were. Staff did take the time to rcognize this which makes it... More

Very cute spot for a meal in St emilion! The waiters were very nice and helped explain the menu a bit for us (it's only in French). Food and wine were great and they were able to fit is in without a res. The food was not overly rich/oily so we appreciated that as well. All very fresh and flavorful!

We had our last glass at the bar counter in this place and we got to watch the closing of the bar. The server took one bottle of red wine and poured it inside another bottle of red wine put the cork back in and racked it for the next day. He did this twice. 2 different chateaux, 2 kinds,... More
