Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Dix is a stylish restaurant run by a very friendly couple, he is the chef, and his wife Gemma very knowledgeably serves the superbly prepared menu. Portion sizes are quite perfect and each one is visually great to see, and tasty to eat. We had...the 6 plate menu and its variety of flavours a pleasure to experience. The restaurant atmosphere is modern and stylish with rustic elements like the wooden tables. Highly recommended!More

Set menu of 4 or 6 items with optional wine pairings - all excellent. Raphael’s cooking and Gemma’s hospitality are first rate. A good place to stay also.

Really great food from Raphael and wonderful hospitality from Gemma. The set menu was innovative, interesting and delicious. Perfect flavours, cooking and presentation. Still love the open kitchen and the ambiance is great. Perfect evening. Thankyou :)

We came back two years later and weren't disappointed. The menu is now a tasting menu (4 or 6 courses) and its probably better for it. You taste a wider variety of dishes and some really interesting flavours. We did the 6 courses and every...one was 👌. Its clear they both are so passionate about the wine / food and that really shows through. This place is a gem - see you in another two years!More

Thank you Gemma, Margarita & Raphaël for a lovely evening. A double birthday celebration with my twin. We came with my family, my 11 month old baby & my very pregnant sister. Raphaël was very reassuring with regards to what was safe for my sister....A table of veggies and a beautiful veggie tasting menu … easy! … yet I don’t think we could have made our order more complicated if we had tried … Margarita was brilliantly patient and natural with us. It somehow turned into … and for the main … could she have the fennel dish … but without the fennel … so sorry!! :D So tasty, beautifully presented, charming setting. Dix is decorated with so much taste. Even the toilets are beautiful!!More

Having being keen and almost desperate to eat here for nearly four years, last week we achieved our goal, a great two night D.B.& B with Raphael and Gemma (Husband & Wife team) at DIX . The dinner is served as a four or six...course tasting menu and this gives you more experience, tastes and flavours which were all amazing. Staying B&B we could actual see some of the daily deliveries arrive for dinner in the morning and it was all local, fresh and of the best quality. My favourite dishes over the six course tasting menu was the mackerel starter, risotto second course and the beef main course. Everything was very tasty and presentation was absolutely outstanding. All this was perfectly support by Gemma in front of house with great cocktails, good local wine list and personal service that everyone would want. Weather dependant there are plenty outdoor tables to book and enjoy this wonderful location. The village of St Alvere is small, beautiful and offers some great choices and experiences .More

Fantastic food and a welcoming atmosphere. The tasting menu was superb, and my daughter had the vegetarian option which was also first class! We enjoyed our evening at Dix and would recommend it.

We visited Dix in the charming village of Sainte Alvare for a birthday meal / stay . The whole experience really lived up to expectations and reputation . The owners have a wonderful mix of homely charm and professionalism . Food wise all 3 courses...were exceptional , beautifully presented and tastes / flavours warranting the inclusion as one of the best new restaurants in France .. The rooms are very stylishly decorated and very comfortable . The whole experience was rounded off by an excellent breakfast . Raphael and Gemma have created a special place , not to be missed .More

We had heard about this restaurant so booked it for our anniversary. The village is lovely to walk around and the restaurant is well placed and very attractive. The decor inside was very tasteful and my gluten free requirement was carefully observed from the beginning....The menu is varied but small enough that you know it is all freshly prepared. The kitchen is visible. The food was very tasty and also very attractive. We enjoyed fish and beef and some lovely desserts. There is a lovely family atmosphere there and we had a fantastic experience. The clientele was almost exclusively English (apart from my French wife) which is a shame because everyone should spend time there enjoying the food and atmosphere. Thanks for the great memories. We will definitely be back and just wished we lived slightly closer.More

The title is the only word required to describe the food, service and location, and the very good house white for only 20 euros was the icing on the cake. A Michelin star can’t be too far away.
