“Excellent spot in the Old Town”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

My brother lives close by and brought us to this delightful oasis, for a long lunch, in the Old Town in Bergerac. Its inauspicious facade belies the delight behind the front door in a delightful old building which has that wonderful unobstrusive hum that is peculiar to French restaurants of a certain quality. The excellent service was matched by peerless food and wine with delicious rillettes to start, through a pretty expansive selection from set menus, to delightful deserts. My wife and daughter were blown away by the salmon which arrived under the smoking dome! The whole thing wasn't a wallet emptying exercise and I would go back again without a doubt if I was in Bergerac for almost any occasion.

“Fantastic food and great atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

This restaurant was lovely. I've booked the table in advance and glad we did it as it was full on Friday night. there are tables inside and outside. We were lucky to sit outside as it was a very warm evening. Selection of food is amazing and each of the dish looks very creative. We had set menu and loved every course. The selection of wines is also very good. I've taken photos of every single course as they were the art work. the staff speaks English and very friendly. Will visit it again!

“Fabulous dinner”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We were in the Dordogne and Loire for three weeks and ate out every night, this was one of the best meals we had throughout our trip. Service was very good, and enough English for any help you might need. Presentation was lovely and the food was very good. Only thing I could fault is it is the lack of space. We happened to be there on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was Very busy.would go back without hesitation

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

The atmosphere at this restaurant is welcoming and friendly - quite a buzz! Food is very good, service professional and courteous. Unfortunately, the tables are rather close to one another and our neighbours smoked during our meal.
