Just outside the main road in the village of St. Emilion, Lard et Bouchon is a great restaurant which serves mostly typical french cuisine, with a modern touch and some influences from the mediterranean cuisine.
I had the beef tartare and confit de canard: the quality of both was outstanding, preparation of the tartare was delicious and the beef itself was delicious. Confit de canard, one of the staples of southwestern France cuisine, did not disappoint: it was tasty, being cooked in its own fat and seasoned with delicious herbs, with a savoury juice that kept it perfectly moist and tender.
Both dishes were served with a side of vegetables (salad, champignons and a delicious aubergine purée for the canard, millefeuilles of potatoes and salad for the beef tartare).
Being in the heart of the Bordeaux wine country, the wine list is also pretty amazing and has an excellent selection of local wines, with a few select labels from other regions of France and the rest of the world. A decent selection of wines by the glass is also available and the host will be glad to assist you with the wine/food pairing.
Prices are reasonable (entries from 12 to 20 €, main course go from 18 to 25 €), probably not cheap but definitely worth every cent given the quality of the products and the overall service provided.

Fish was excellent, presentation beautiful, service superb. We went with our server's wine recommendation and were not disappointed.

We ate here on our first night in St. Emilion following the recommendation of our innkeeper, Laurent at Masion de la Commanderie. HIs recommendation was perfect. This restaurant is just down the street from the lovely inn where we stayed, a most convenient location.

The moment we walked in we loved it. The space has character and charm and the food is quite good. Of course the selection of wines was terrific but what can one expect in St. Emilion. I had a duck dish that was well prepared and tasty. I can easily recommend this establishment when looking for a fine dining restaurant in St. Emilion.

Disappointing service, very limited menus choice (apparently they were changing over to a new menu) - no vegetarian option at all. Order taken down incorrectly for two main courses missing with no apology. Food good but for 110 Euros per head with wine then you'd expect it to be. With so much choice around it's worth exploring elsewhere

We like to thank Sylvain Sasso who looked after us. 14 guys on a boys weekend away. The food was great the price was reasonable. Also had a great choice of wine which we explored and drank. A really good restaurant if you are looking for great food, ambiance but not at silly money! Thank you Sylvain.
