“Good menu choice, nicely presented cuisine”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

It was a very wet Dordogne Saturday when we happened upon the Maleville looking for a restaurant. There is an extensive car park next to the restaurant (free after 7pm). The maitre d' was immediately at the door to welcome the three of us. The service was friendly and attentive throughout our meal. The only criticism was that the champagne in the Kir Royale was a little flat. There was a good range of choices (having spent much time in Dordogne we now tend to avoid any dish with the word confit in the title) and we skipped straight to the mains - gambas and home-made tagliatelle was outstanding as were the St Jaques' scallops. L'assiette vegetarianne was excellent too (lovely toasted goat's cheese with honey), though the addition of couple of wedges of cantaloupe melon was a little random. Deserts were scrummy. The dishes were all beautifully presented and the house wine was well chosen and 50 cl carafe was good value. Most enjoyable - even if theriver view was obscured by mist and rain.

“Meh.”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

The location is fantastic - sunny balcony overlooking the river.

Regrettably, the rest of the experience didn't live up to that. Many menu items - including what we had wanted to order based on the exterior menu - were not available, but that was due to the fact that they were hosting a wedding that evening.

When the food did arrive, it was overpriced and only average. I wouldn't return.

“Big shame.”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Typical tourist place that assumes it won't get repeat custom.... great position on the edge of the Dordogne river. Probably superb for a beer. But our food was expensive and badly cooked. The confit duck wasn't confit - oozing with fat that hadn't been rendered - and the frites were done in old oil not hot enough to crisp. My vegetarian plate was a joke (a bit of cucumber and carrot and goats cheese on a half a slice of toasted mother's pride). The steak was okay. But that was thanks to the cow, as it came out practically mooing anyway. Such a shame restaurants put looks over taste.

“Refined regional cuisine in a cosy atmosphere”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Hostellerie Maleville has definitely evolved into the Nouvelle Cuisine without ignoring its regional roots and typicity. The atmosphere is cosy, the menus as well as the carte offers plenty and the meals are wonderfully full of genuine flavors. It is worth getting away from the more crowded places and drive a few more kilometers to Beynac.
