“Nice place for morning coffee”
Review of Palais Cardinal

Palais Cardinal
Ranked #24 of 44 Restaurants in Saint-Emilion
Cuisines: French
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 July 2018

If you are waiting for the little train to take you on a trip around the vineyards, as we were, you could do worse than sit on the terrace here and have a relatively expensive coffee (served with a smile) and watch the world go by (basically people with more money than you who can afford to stay here with its lovely setting amongst Roman ruins). And relax.

We dined in the Palais Cardinal for four of our five nights in St Emilion. The dining room was beautifully furnished. The restaurant had an excellent choice of menu which was very well cooked and presented. The receptionist spoke excellent English and was most helpful. The waiter was also very efficient. Well worthwhile experiencing the quality and value of the food on offer.

My wife and I stayed here one night and after check in went to the pool where although the water was 'fresh' it was very refreshing after a walk around the vineyards. The room was very small but was ideally located too. The evening meal was delicious and the chef and main manager were good. The traffic noise was probably the only point but I still slept ok.
St Emilion is a great place and we really enjoyed it!

The food is pretty good. The wine is good. The service can be good if the young server is working. If the older guy sever is working then be prepared to be insulted the way only a French person can insult an English speaking person. He is disgusting and and a shane to this establishment and to his chosen trade. Very sad, very arrogant. No return visit I am sad to say.

Please enjoy this place because it's Rare.

Eat Lamb- Maybe the Duck. Duck in France is Always marvelous but if you are on your way to Perigord, Duck products are all there is to eat in Perigord that is exceptional! So here eat the Lamb here,which is special

Always ask the French people their opinions
On food. They are so Educated about Food
And Art. They are a treasure to the World

Ask questions about Wine. Don't faint
You are in the most expensive wine region
Of France

Enjoy it
