We are not the best people to be eating out in Périgord as we don't eat meat, but do eat fish. So you can imagine that trying to find something to eat in this bastion of goose liver etc. is a challenge; but one that we embrace with open minds. We were a group of 7 - most of whom do eat meat and who love the local food.
It was a delight to find a restaurant that not only had two fish dishes on the menu, but also has a salad that does not contain meat. The welcome was warm and genuine, and when taking our orders the owner spotted that there were veggies in the group, and was quick to point out that the potatoes were cooked in goose fat. Something I have never experienced before - the mention, not the goose fat.
Throughout, the service was light hearted, friendly and genuine, and quick and attentive. The food was good and well cooked. The salads fresh and crisp, the local specialities were appreciated by our carnivore relatives and included some traditional recipes for pork that were enjoyed.
In summary, it is an unpretentious, good quality, very friendly and warm restaurant. Value is good. For seven people, three courses, with two carafes of wine and water, with apéritifs and a digestif (one) came to €200. Not bad.
The welcome was excellent, and while the patron speaks English it was not forced upon us and was certainly not done in a patronising way; more to be helpful. Will definitely eat here again.
