Really enjoyed our lunch. We stopped here between Chateau visits and couldn't have been more pleased. It felt like a local country restaurant, despite being in an area that probably gets many tourists. I started with a goat cheese salad that had local honey on it. It was delicious. For my main I had the tartare special that is made... More

We stopped at Chez Meme as we were biking towards Pauillac on our honeymoon. We decided to stop for lunch and were thrilled with our find. The food was outstanding and the services was impeccable. We had beautifully cooked duck and saved room for one of the best creme brules. Despite it being harvest season, we sat outside and relaxed... More

We stumbled on this local village bistrot by accident, after failing to find a restaurant open at lunchtime in Pauillac. Recipe for success: simple, fresh, unpretentious French food and a very friendly owner. Once your meal is over, walk a few meters to buy some good St Julien wine from the local wine shop. Perfect!

We really enjoyed our meal at this restaurant. The staff and owners were very friendly and spoke good English. The "plat du jour" was excellent value for money and the food was excellent as well The only fault we could find is that perhaps the food is a little "too fancy" for children's tastes as our daughter could not eat...

We're looking for a place for lunch near Pauillac, and chose this place based on Tripadvisor reviews. It exceeded our expectations! We love the food, esp the burger, which was special and probably the best burger I've ever had!

We visited this restaurant as a result of the recent Rick Stein weekend away TV programme, we ordered the menu during jour 3 courses for €15, the server seemed disappointed we'd ordered it although all the locals were eating it, over all the food was OK, but not wonderful, we didn't feel we should order a whole bottle of wine...

On holiday in Bordeaux area, planned before seeing the Rick Stein program, but decided to go and visit here. Everything a village restaurant should be simple food, cooked at home, with home made pud. For 15 Euros each it was good simple food and very good value…what more can I say except I wish I could go again!

Chez meme crossed our way between wine tours and this little gem caught immediately our attention. We hadn't much time to lunch as our next wine tour was close and they prepared a table for us very quickly and try to fasten the service so we could enjoy every minute while there. Everything was perfect! The decoration is very cosy,... More

If you're looking for a restaurant frequented by locals that offers well-priced authentic French food, this is it! My husband and I ate here for lunch after it being recommended by our B+B, as well as seeing it featured on Rick Stein's twitter-feed! Run by a husband (chef) and wife (front of house) team, we had the menu du jour... More

Went for lunch here after a tour to the local wine merchant. She recommended the Bistro to us, and that recommendation turned out to be very good. Very nice soup as starter, duck breast for main course and Créme Brûlée for dessert made the afternoon very pleasant. Tasty food and very friendly owners, who offered a warm hospitality. Don't miss... More
