Service is VERY slow! Took almost 3 hrs from being seated to leaving. We had to ask 3 times for a bottle of water and by the time our main courses arrived (we had starters) we had been seated for 2 hrs. Food was ok...More

This place has tables outside in one of the main squares in St Emilion. It's a bit touristy but we really wanted to sit outside on a warm evening and there weren't that many options. The service as friendly enough but the food really wasn't...More

Having read the reviews it is hard to believe we visited the same restaurant in Saint Emilion, as our experience was above the 3/5 average. We visited in March when it was quieter, so while the service was not ideal it was passable from a...More
