Not only was the meal superb...best Quenelle i have ever eater---but the setting, in the middle of seemingly endless vineyards on a warm summer evening, could not be topped.

The position, sunk in one of the best grape growing part of Saint Emilion, is unbeatable; the wine on offer, produced at the estate, sublime; the view and the atmosphere delightful. The Carte is short and smartly planned. Ideal.

My husband and I had a delightful time at this winery/restaurant. The owner, Jean-Louis, is an engaging, thoroughly magnetic personality. You can feel his passion in the food they serve. His Chateau de Candale was wonderfully fruit forward. We had the day's plat...succulent beef and...More

We had dinner here and enjoyed the appetisers which were cream soups very much but our main and dessert were just alright. They have a large outdoor seating area with views of the nearby vineyards.
