Dix is a very pretty restaurant located in a very pretty Dordogne village- quintessentially French. The decor, lighting and overall ambiance are tasteful and elegant. Clearly a lot of time and effort has gone into creating the right kind of setting to complement the excellent food on offer.

Our two-course lunch (starter plus main) was fresh, delicious and satisfying. I loved the butternut squash soup with parmesan, walnuts and a poached egg- a nice take on a popular favourite. My chicken fillet on a celeriac root mash with a veal jus was as good as it sounds while the others in our party chose cod with dhal and a mild curry foam. I tasted it and can echo their very favourable opinion. We were too full for dessert, we just ended our meal with a very good coffee.

I would dine at Dix again with pleasure. We need more restaurants like this, those who maintain creativity and a commitment to quality and freshness. Highly recommended.

A group of 3 of us went for lunch at this lovely restaurant on a Monday lunchtime. Very stylishly decorated, with a calming relaxed feel. 2 choices of starter, main & dessert - all perfectly cooked and a very warm welcome from Gemma and her husband Raphael. A delightful spot for lunch. We look forward to visiting again for dinner !

Even if it was January, Dix is an uplifting place to visit and eat. Having caught it on Channel 4 "New Place in the Sun" we needed to see how it had developed since filming. It is charmingly run by a young couple, the decor and environs are beautiful and the food and wine was seriously delicious. Everything was spot on and I cant wait to go back and recommend to all the visitors who will be going to Bergerac this year...

Off the main road, unpretentious stylish dining room; menu du jour, and à la carte. Curried crab between beetroot ravioli was tasty, fresh and light. Pork chop with white bean ragout was very tasty.

This local restaurant deserves to do well !

Newly opened "Dix" restaurant is a little gem. Talented chef Raphael creates delicious plates of food and charming Gemma greets guests warmly and serves efficiently. Great that they plan to stay open throughout the year.
Last night's oeufs mourette were a triumph. We have been for lunch a couple of times and love the inventive set menu, and it was a treat to go again for dinner last night to this full booked, buzzy and exciting new restaurant.
