“Very pleasant lunch on spec”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

I wanted to visit St Julien home of one of my favourite wines. Arriving at lunchtime, the village was closed except for Le Saint Julien. Fortunately the restaurant was not busy. We had a delicious set menu for 35Euros each. Variation on oeuf florentine with lightly truufled mouse and pea puree, prawn ravioli with delicious bisque. For les plats principal, goose breast and entrectote. Then simple deserts with strawberries and a tuti fruiti nougat semi fredo. All delicious, simply presented without too much fuss, needless to say washed down with an excellent a bottle of St Julien.

“Lovely meal !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

We ate here last Saturday night, decent portions, food fantastic all served in a warm friendly atmosphere. Started off with chef coming to say hello, which was great. We had the dover sole filleted perfectly at the table and the entrecote steak - full of flavour. I could go on but no need, it was all great value and if you are in the area its a very strong recommendation.

“Delicious, relaxing atmosphere and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

One if our favorite restaurants in Bordeaux. My spouse ordered snails which was served in a creamy bisque ( very yummy) and roast lamb which was succulent. I ordered pan fried duck with foei gras ( very good) and the best creme brûlée ever! The main dishes are accompanied with side dishes like deliciously stewed beans or butter fried potato chips. We did not have wine as we had been visiting chateaux and wine tasting but I saw some customers bringing in their own wine. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet although quite a number of tables were full - it is like having a meal in the garden.

“A quick visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

Quite unwisely, we allowed an hour for lunch at this beautiful restaurant as we journeyed to a winery for an organised tour and tasting. The chef appeared at our table, explaining that he couldn't do justice t his entire menu within that time frame. He suggested an entree, and a choice of two mains. We agreed and were not disappointed. A bottle of Bordeaux red was shared and we promised to return for a real local meal! Great courtesy, great communication and wonderful atmosphere
