Located next to the church of Montagne this restaurant used to be the residence of the former priest.We are convinced that the quality of the kitchen has increased a lot since the previous owner left the building ! The food is really tops and the service impeccable. Weather permitting the outside terrace at the back of the restaurant is a... More

We enjoyed this restaurant because it appeared to have a local feel to it, rather than being full of tourists. It is tucked away at the back of the church square and hence had a nice feel to it. Very little English was spoken by the two people serving (not a criticism but just be aware if you do not... More

If you're easily spooked, you might be advised to steer clear of the place- given the proximity to a graveyard. Overall pretty nice place with nice staff. Food was a bit of a mixed bag, with some good starters but just average main courses.

The Le Vieux Presbytere is the epitome of a local French restaurant that's off the beaten path and has good traditional meals. It's not fancy, but at the same time warm and traditional. Probably the best part for my wife and I was the service, the owner spoke perfect English and was amazingly nice. All of the food was good,... More

We parked our motorcycle outside and walked in off the street unbooked last saturday evening. We both had the Menu de plaisir meal at 28.00 euros and quite honestly it was one of the best meals we have ever had and at the price outstanding. It's a shame we were on the bike as I could have killed a bottle... More

After a hectic time in St Emilion we came upon this restaurant in Montagne. The had a table available and we enjoyed an excellent lunch there. The food was tasty, beautifully presented and the service was top notch. Very relaxing and enjoyable. A postscript: dog friendly they brought her a bowl of fresh water without us asking.

We'd got a bit lost looking for a particular vineyard, which didn't matter as the scenery around here is stunningly pretty. Le vieux Presbytère was a lucky find, we wandered in without a booking. Our hosts offered a choice of tables inside or out. Outside was charming, a quiet courtyard lovingly cared for. Our light lunch was perfect. Flavours were... More

My wife and I went for dinner at Le Vieux this evening and had high hopes for it having read the majority of reviews on TripAdvisor. I can only assume we are living in a parallel universe as this was without a doubt, the single worst meal I have ever been served in a French restaurant. My first course (asparagus,... More

Situated close to the church in Montagne (a satellite of St. Emilion), this traditional restaurant offers high quality food, reasonably priced on the Prix-fixe menu. This was my third visit in the last 10 years, and the service and quality is very consistent.

We had a wonderful dinner. The food was excellent and ambiance very nice. We had the set menu at 38 Euros which was very good value.
