Being in Saint Emilion, the town, not the appellation, you wonder where to go next – in one of the many shops where you will be presented great wines from the region, combined with great cheeses, or still sit in restaurant. Le Clos du Roy was chosen by the locals in our group, i.e. the choice was French and as a first visit, after our arrival, the restaurant was a very good start.

 See ….

…. The building is old, the walls are made of local bricks, used from old times, containing a lot of limestone, hence the light color – seen in the photos;

…. White tablecloths, exactly in the style of fine dining restaurants.

 Feel ….

…. Great service! Of course, they observe  the etiquette of serving food to everyone at once.

…. We asked about their recipe for the lamb, because we liked it very much. The waiter went to the cooks, came back and told everything in detail – no secrets, no pretensions, it was very kind of them to share their recipe with a smile to us.

Hear ….

…. Well, there was no music – it was super weird. But we were a big company and we made a lot of noise and talked, so we were not bored at all, but somehow it was as if something was crippled in the atmosphere without music.

Movie watching time: 2:22 min.

Smell ….

…. Let me say again – the lamb! It won our admirations and not only with the aroma;

…. I am a big fan of gourmet coffee – it is served with several desserts, an incredible combination of the smell of caramelized sugar from brulee, coconut, chocolate and fragrant organic coffee from Mexico!

Taste ….

…. Very interesting burger – not with a bun, as is standard, but with toasted bread, it was very nice.

…. I was very impressed by the vegetables, as a side dish to all dishes – slightly crunchy, with the right amount of flavor;

…. The appetizer with home-marinated salmon was unfortunately tasteless. In general, the dishes are not very salty in restaurants in the region;

…. Gourmand coffee and the desserts accompanying it – they are so delicious, there was even a traditional Turkish rice pudding, which was sweet on top and I really liked it, although I have avoided this dessert since childhood;

…. Mandatory wine for food, there is no way without it.

You can visit Le Clos de Roy restaurant in Sant Emilion, but I’m sure there are other good restaurants around, so if you have time, give it a chance elsewhere, but you certainly won’t go wrong here.
