Across the street from the auberge commanderie. Food was excellent as was the service and choice of local wines and mineral water. It is not cheap but worth it as it was for us on our final night in St Emilion

Excellent food with an exciting menu. Good ingredients prepared well and served beautifully. Some of the combinations of food were outstanding. We cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. We came to France looking for outstanding cooking and L'Alcove is head and shoulders above any other establishment we have visited. A four course meal, for four, with wine was under 200 euros. Tremendous value for money. If you are in St Emilion, it is a must.

This is our favourite restaurant in St Emilion. There are a lot of restaurants in this little town that pretend to be something they are not and serve average and over fussy food at silly prices. This place is different. The menu is small but fresh and varied - something for everyone, and some nice surprises. Beautifully cooked an presented by friendly staff. The restaurant itself is small and charming, with a nice relaxed atmosphere. The wine is and food are both good value. You will find this place on the outer road that connects the south of the town to the north. On the left hand side as you walk up the hill. Worth seeking out if you are fed up with all the Michelin wannabes ! Everything about this place is good. We loved it !
