Where can vegetarians eat near Les Eyzies?

It doesn't have to be a vegetarian restaurant, just one that reliably has a vegetarian option on the menu. I have trawled both tripadvisor and Michelin looking at the menus of all the recommended restaurants (taken HOURS) but it's wall-to-wall meat with the occasional fish. Any recommendations gratefully received.

Vegetarian in rural France is difficult at best, especially in an area so renowned for goose and duck....

I have absolutely no idea if this place is still open, or where they are, but I found this:

Sorry Oldhanwellian but I am not sure of there is even a word for vegetarianism in SW France (I know there is, but you get my point I hope).

If you work at it you will find good veggie dishes on many menus, but as has been pointed out this IS duck/foie gras country.

I remember a post a couple of years ago about restaurants for vegans - that might help if you can find it.

This will be a challenge. Restaurants in the Dordogne often put duck in the SALADS, and potatoes are often sauteed in duck or goose fat. You'll have to ask how the potatoes were cooked, if you want to be careful.

That said, the more 'touristy" locations such as Les Eyzies and Sarlat will likely have a pizza place, even if it isn't listed on tripadvisor or other sites.

There is a pizzeria in Les Eyzies which I know does veg pizza Sarlat also has pizza restaurants other than pizza or the odd pasta dish that you will be hard pressed to find any vegetarian options in the area.
