My husband and I ate here twice, for our first experience was so wonderful that we wanted to treat ourselves to another meal. Quality and selections were excellent and the servers attentive. This is a must if staying in the area.

We booked a table there for our last evening in France - booking is a must, even off-season. The place is stunningly beautiful, and the staff is nothing but kind and attentive. Unfortunately, our food - while beautifully presented - was so timidly prepared it bordered to bland. In a restaurant with such options and apparent expectations to its own... More

An elegant restaurant in the traditional old French style. Delicious, from entrée through dessert. Excellent service and charming atmospherics.

Our only regret with having eaten at La Belle Etoile was we waited until our first day in the Dordogne to make a reservation for dinner. Luckily we were able to get a reservation 2 days prior to our departure. What we found refreshing about La Belle Etoile is, unlike many other restaurants in the region, duck and goose was... More

La Belle seems to be the most recommended restaurant in the Dourgne. We managed to make reservations for a Friday night 8 nights in advance. There was 4 of us and we all enjoyed our dinners including the deserts. The service was very good - friendly and helpful. The wine recommendation was the best - still one of our favorite... More

We had an outstanding experience from initial, long-in-advance request for a table through the final, friendly, after-dinner farewell. My wife, a friend and I arrived early to a warm welcome and a late-September drink on the very pleasant terrace. Our table in the gracious dining room provided each of us a terrific view over the Dordogne and the woods beyond.... More

La Belle was recommended by our B & B hosts and is definitely worth dining here if you are in the area. It was all top notch. Indoor tables are more formal and a lovely outdoor terrace with views over the river. Food and service were both excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. You must book in advance for...

By far the best dinner we had in France. The prices are not too high (other restaurant take the same for menu, and they are far behind). I recommend it to every food lover.

La Belle Etoile serves traditional French fare with a subtle artistic twist. We loved their presentation and it was all cooked to perfection. Service and ambience was very good.

Truly this was an exquisite dining experience Eleuthera foods prepared with remarkable presentation, taste and care. Our best meal in France over S 3 week period. Highly recommended. Not inexpensive, but the quality of the food and service is well worth it.
