I visited Saint Cirq Lapopie in November and as we entered the restaurant there was a fireplace welcoming us. Staff of the restaurant are very nice. I chose to eat the "Truite au vin de Malbec" and it was delicious! I took the menu with entry, main course and dessert that we could chose between a sweet dessert or cheese.... More

The menu is exquisite and their Trout poached in Cahors Red Wine Sauce is to die for: it is my husband's favourite dish.I am a vegetarian... More

Lovely Restaurant in the heart of the beautiful village.We enjoyed a Delicous Duck & Cheese Salad,with a glass of wine.Service was a little slow,but so much going on we were very happy to have such a long lunch! Friendly English speaking staff. Definitely worth a visit.

We still can't quite believe how good everything was. The setting is of course exceptional, the staff wonderful and the food sensational. We had goats cheese with truffles for starter and then the best lamb we have EVER eaten for the main course followed by a wonderful dessert. The staff were so exceptional that it wasn't the slightest problem that... More

Superb French cuisine in a delightful setting on the main square in St Cirq Lapopie, which itself is known as one of the most beautiful villages in France. The waiting staff are very friendly and attentive, the food is beyond par and although, as you would expect, there is only one vegetarian dish on the menu, this dish is utterly... More

If you are visiting Perch Merle Cave, do make sure you visit the nearby Saint Cirq Lapopie. My sister and I were there in early June and we had lunch in Auberge du Sombral. It is a quaint lovely building but since we were there for lunch, we chose to sit at the back terrace. It was wonderful to be... More

By far and away the best restaurant in St Cirq - a bit of a tourist "trap" but we ate here on a Saturday evening. Great meal 4 courses for 30 euro. Would recommend booking at lunch

Pretty village and this is a pretty restaurant, with excellent food. Easily the best meal we had in the Lot on this trip. Most of us ordered the special salads - to die for, a full meal with fresh leaves, excellent bread and incredible cheese. Great coffee and dessert too.

This is a lovely place to have lunch. We could not get in for dinner w/o a reservation. If you are going to be in St Cirq Lapopie, this is the place to dine. The service is very good but not as friendly as some of the places we visited. The food preparation is taken very seriously, and they are... More
