Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Small restaurant so book. If you enjoy good food - not to be missed. The menu is limited but the food delicious.

We looked through the window and just had to eat there. We went back a couple of days later and were lucky to get a table. We speak very little french but this did not matter as there were English versions of the menu. We felt incredibly welcome and the food was just amazing. The atmosphere and the service was incredible and it's great value for money.

After eating there last year, we returned back this year. It was still as good as the first time we experienced it. The owners are the most friendly people, who advise you very good on the food. Unlike what some reviewers say, this is not food from the surrounding area or mountains (which mountains in Dordogne have they seen?). This is food from the Savoie-region in the Alps: cheese-, patatoes- and sliced meat based menue: raclette, tartiflette, etc. Although they also offer the local style food like duck.
Our daughter does not like cheese, which is a challenge in this place, but they were creative and offered her a fantastic alternative. Never seen my childeren eat so much as in this restaurant.
It is worth a visit!

The restaurant only has six tables, and five of them seemed to be occupied by locals the night we ate there. There is an English language menu, and though you mightn’t get exactly what you thought you’d get, it’ll be enjoyable and great value.
The cuisine is mountain food from surrounding areas, with an emphasis on cured meats. Perhaps the most surprising thing is that there’s a meat slicer in the restaurant, and the various meats for each dish are sliced as needed and passed through to the kitchen. No fingers were removed while we were there.
I ordered a salad and a savory tart, and was told this was too much. When I saw the salad I understood why: it was huge.
I’ll remember this meal long after meals at more orthodox restaurants have been forgotten. Do try it if you’re in the area.

We were staying in Gite in a nearby village (Thenon) and visited this little bistro twice in the 2 weeks were were on holiday.
It's a great place, small, welcoming and the food is extremely tasty and great value for money.
If you are after a traditional French style bistro serving good wholesome food then this is just for you.
