We Returned to Lou Marmitou after a year away. As there are some changes I thought it a good idea to bring things up to date.
On this occasion we went on a weekday Lunch and did book in advance, when we arrived the Car Park was full and many Vehicles in the Car Park opposite, inside the Bar area and Restaurant was nearly full, in total seats about 120.
The decor is very basic, it comfortable and has good ambiance and the constant drone of chatter which all makes for an enjoyable meal. As there is no choice it is a set meal therefore the serving staff is kept to a minimum which helps to keep the cost down. The service is very efficient but don't expect to be in and out in an hour, part of the enjoyment is to relax and enjoy the experience. The meal is 5 course inclusive of Wine, Water, Bread and Coffee, the new all inclusive price is Lunch & Evening with exception of Sunday is €13 Sundays are now €18.
As for the Meal was very much as before and of a good standard local produce cooked on the premises the Soup is always excellent, the second course is usually a salad often traditional Périgordien, the main course is either Duck, Pork sometimes Steak or Lamb served in the French style either with chips, or vegetables often beans green or white. They then offer a Cheese board with a choice of 4 or 5, after this a selection of sweets and coffee to finish. There is always plenty of Wine bread and water on the table, if you require more just ask. The service is excellent, you can either eat in the Bar area which seats about 40 or the Restaurant which seats up to 80, there are a small number of seats outside OK for Summer. It is always best to book; it is normally very busy. The Restaurant is family run and there is always a warm welcome, regulars get the traditional greeting.
They are open every day for Lunch & Dinner except Sunday evening.
