Lunch with a mi cuit salmon in saffron sauce with tiny mussels. Top quality cooking and ingredients, and Madame, the proprietor is delightful.

We had a very good lunch here during a short visit to Perigueux. Good flavours, carefully prepared, delicious dessert and very nice wine; service was friendly and efficient. It's in a little side street with no garden, so not a particularly pretty area, but as it was raining that didn't bother us. Atmosphere homely, calm and relaxing rather than buzzy.... More

The food was also superb, different from the usual Perigod fare, and cooked very well. We had a starter and main as part of the €29 euro menu. As part of this we... More

As Australians looking for an authentic, delicious French meal this was first class. The foie gras starter was superb as was the goose main. The strawberries in the dessert were some of the nicest ever tasted.

Home in France for a few weeks, enjoying the Perigord with a friend. I asked her to take me to a restaurant where I could eat good duck/goose products. Really enjoyed the foie gras as my first course and the goose filet as the main dish. They cook the meat the way you want, unlike most restaurants in Perigueux who... More

Fantastic food and service! 2 courses plus a decent bottle of local wine was €100 incl tip. Looks nothing special from the outside, but really lovely food and friendly service. Doesn't accept Amex.
