“Exquisely scrumptious”
Reviewed 30 November 2012

We were visiting the region from California and stumbled upon one of the best meal of our lives. We always use Trip Advisor and had some really good food. We dine out a lot and everything about this restaurant was perfect. The decor was cozy, refined and gorgeous. The bathroom was pristine and romantic. We were there with our special needs son so we were hesitant that the staff may not approve of his erratic behavior, but they were extremely accommodating and kind. The food was exquisite and scrumptious. The presentation was creative and the style of cooking was different and deserving a Michelin star. We would pay a fortune to eat there again but the price was inexpensive for the amount and the quality of the food. The experience was unforgettable. It is a beautiful region and the restaurant is worth driving 1.5 hours from Bordeaux to eat. Thank you for the most amazing experience. We ordered everything on the menu and everything was outstanding. The Tarte poivre was heavenly.

“Superb dining experience!”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

My husband and I came here with friends from Perigueux. The entire experience was exceptional. First, the service was friendly and welcoming - not always the case in France. The menu is cuisine French food, offering mainly seafood but other dishes as well. We all opted for the fixed menu options rather than a la carte, and for the most part, we each got a different dish. Everyone loved their dishes. My husband's scallops were prepared to perfection. I opted for the turbot with rhubarb, which was divine. The fixed menu is a great value, given the quality of the dishes and the well-executed preparation and presentation. After being led astray by tripadvisor reviews for restaurants in Paris, it was wonderful to finely have the French dining experience I craved at Le Rocher. If you choose this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

This restaurant is a little bit off the beaten path, but still a very easy walk from city center, and therefore, it is frequented more by the locals and less tourists. Again, I think this speaks to its quality.
