“Typical tourist trap, good not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

Ok lunch just as mildly overpriced as you would expect in St Emilion. Good carpaccio of beef to start, followed by uninspiring sea bass and rabbit cream and mustard sauce. V poor house wines for the location. Paid 60eur, worth around 40 at a push. Attentive staff, pleasant and friendly, but couldn't strongly recommend.

“The Best in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2011

We ate here twice and cannot imagine why it is ranked so low. The service was friendly and efficient. The food was terrific, imaginative. The sea bass with pasta was very tasty. The salads are huge and all contain a perfect complement of ingredients. We loved this place and we have eaten at starred restaurants throughout Europe. 3 course menus start at under 20 euros.
