What a wonderful treat it was to have Philippe Vannier and his wife, Monique treat us to a marvelous evening with magnificent flavors that surprised our palate. From the initial champagne and appetizer to the main course and superb deserts, the evening was perfectly orchestrated for a fantastic experience. The restaurant’s atmosphere is intimate and welcoming, especially when greeted by Monique, who speaks perfectly fluent English. The pace of service is not slow but we were given enough time to savor all the care and passion that Philippe puts into his creations. If you find yourself in Agen, Philippe Vanier is a must experience!

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and I have to say it was the culinary highlight of our trip.

It's not a huge place (around 10 tables) but its very tastefully decorated and has a really comfortable atmosphere

The menu offers a choice of superb dishes which makes choosing very difficult as everything is so good. There's a great wine list too.

Local produce is the key here and Phillipe prepares and presents each of his dishes to the highest standards. The duck breast was divine, practically melting in the mouth and his chocolate fondant is beyond words... Don't miss it!!
Monique (Mrs V) is front of house and is faultlessly efficient, discreet and also speaks perfect English.
This is absolutely a 'must' for any visitor to Agen.

Philippe Vannier is a real gem.A beautiful restaurant with a lot of ambience and atmosphere. You really feel at home directly when you enter beeing gently greeted by Philippe Vannier's wife. The food was delicious and a joy for eye as well as stomach. My wife started with foie gras and I had lobster salad. As main course we both chose the dorade.Fantastic. Do not miss this restaurant if you are in Agen. Everything is top!

We are two couples who wanted to find something special for a birthday dinner and we succeeded at Philippe Vannier. This restaurant showed us what really good french food is all about.
The service was impeccable - the waitress was friendly and spoke excellent English. She was helpful when required but was never intrusive. The decor was very stylish making for an ambient atmosphere. The restaurant was small but there was plenty or room between tables so privacy was maintained.
There are set menus or you can choose from a well thought out a la carte menu - we chose the 31€ menu and were not disappointed. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meals - all food was cooked to perfection and was beautifully presented.
If you are looking for a French dining experience you will not be disappointed here. We have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.
