A tourist restaurant in the centre of St Emilion offering good value for money, a nice environment, but middle of the road food and rushed service (they want to turn tables over)

The restaurant itself is in an inner courtyard flanked by the church walls. It is bustling. People come and go at an alarming speed.

But at 50 euros a head, it was reasonable value for money.

More waiters (which they need) would put up the cost,. As would better quality food. They know the market that they are aiming at, and they appear to satisfy that market.

You do need to book a table in the season, as they have a lot of customers wanting to eat here!

Amazing restaurant! We went here as our final, special holiday meal and it didn’t disappoint. The service was first class and we discussed wines with the waiter who was charming and not arrogant or patronising as sommeliers often can be. The food was absolutely delicious and we had a wonderful table in the courtyard. Overall I would say perfection.

Friendly waitresses and maitre’d. Great wine recommendations. Slightly pricey (consider Paris dining price levels but that’s understandable in St. Emilion). Very child friendly.
The slow cooked leg of lamb (beautifully delicately seasoned) and paired with the Chateau Monbousquet St. Emilion Grand Cru (2012) was the highlight of the afternoon.
I also appreciated that the establishment treated my 3 year old as a serious customer and culinary explorer.
I will be back here.

Bunch of Indians with a toddler, hungry and looking for a good meal in peak touristy season in a city like St Emilion and have no reservation. Walked in to the restaurant seeing the labels on the door and were told, yes is possible to get a table. One of the best meals we have had in Bordeaux. The waiters all spoke fluent English. And they make eye contact if you are looking for service (unlike a lot of places in France!) good recommendations as well and they also allow you to order both the set menu vs from the card for different people in the same table. Lovely service. 1 tip - ask for their wine recommendations. They will not burn your pocket! All in all, one of the nicest meals in Bordeaux.

On a recent Viking river cruise, we stopped with the group for lunch. What a lovely experience. Great bread, salads and a veal filet that was wonderful. Oysters, fish, foie gras, great desserts. Not to mention, a bottle of Chateau Pavie. Excellent service. Love the patio dining in the back. Excellent from start to finish!
