Bordeaux Vineyard Restaurants – Where to Eat at a Winery in Saint Emilion? Updated in 2024

Looking for an unforgettable lunch in Saint-Emilion wine country? Here are my recommendations of the best Bordeaux vineyard restaurants on the Right Bank.

Can you eat a winery in Bordeaux?

Several Bordeaux wine estates have excellent restaurants. 

Usually, wineries partner with great French chefs to bring you the best of local cuisine paired with famous Bordeaux wines and the most exquisite views of Bordeaux vineyards.

Some Bordeaux wineries also offer lunch picnics.  

Bordeaux winery restaurants serve lunch from noon to 2 pm.  When planning lunch in Saint-Emilion, allow for at least two hours to enjoy a traditional 3-course French lunch and a glass of Bordeaux.  

Are Bordeaux vineyard restaurants open all year around?

Bordeaux vineyard restaurants may be closed in winter months between Christmas and early March.  It is not uncommon for them to close during the month of January.  

Also, it is worth noting that Bordeaux wine country restaurants are closed on certain days of the week – for example, on Sundays and Mondays and often on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Which Bordeaux wineries have restaurants?

Here is a list of vineyard restaurants I recommend near Saint-Émilion, the most famous wine region of Bordeaux on the Right Bank.

1. Les Belles Perdrix at Château Troplong Mondot

Les Belles Perdrix is on the beautiful grounds of a Saint-Émilion grand cru classe winery, Château Troplong Mondot.  

Les Belles Perdrix was awarded a Michelin star in March of 2022.

The gourmet restaurant offers to experience the modern style cuisine of the Michelin-starred chef, David Charrier with unforgettable views of Saint-Émilion vineyards.

The restaurant sources a lot of its produce from its organic permaculture vegetable garden on the property. 

Les Belles Perdrix offers lunch and dinner menus between Tuesday and Saturday.  I recommend booking a table well in advance.  The first lunch reservation is at 12:15 pm.   

The restaurant is approximately 10 minutes away from the town of Saint-Émilion which makes it a convenient stop during your wine tours.  There is underground parking onsite.  If you plan on visiting the restaurant do not miss a guided visit and tasting at the gorgeous Château Troplong Mondot (reservations required).

2. La Terrasse Rouge at Chateau La Dominique

La Terrasse Rouge is located at Château La Dominique, Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classe, transformed from a small family winery to a state-of-the-art facility redesigned by Jean Nouvel.  

The restaurant was created by Nicolas Lascombes, a well-known Bordeaux restaurateur. The menu highlights the traditional gastronomy of Southwest France.

During the warm months, La Terrasse Rouge opens its terrace, the most instagrammable place in Saint-Émilion.

Have a glass of Château La Dominique or one of the other 250 wines on the wine list with your lunch or dinner while looking at the architecture of Château Cheval Blanc.

The service can be somewhat slow during busy times, so I would budget additional time and enjoy a relaxed afternoon.  

La Terrasse Rouge is closed during the month of January.

L’Atelier de Candale is in the most idyllic location. Set in the vineyards of Saint-Émilion, this restaurant serves modern-style cuisine.

Open every day from May to September except dinners on Mondays and Sundays.

There is nothing better than a chilled glass of Bordeaux rose or white on the terrace of L’Atelier de Candale on a warm summer day.  

From October to April, L’Atelier de Candale is open from Tuesday to Saturday.  It is my go-to place during the winter months.

Le Jardin restaurant is open from Tuesday to Saturday, noon and evening.

The Château Grand Barrail is a 5-star hotel a couple of kilometers from the town of St. Emilion.  The hotel has an elegant restaurant serving southwestern France cuisine and fine wines.

When the weather is good, you can have lunch or dinner on the terrace with a view of the park and the vineyards.
