“Serious cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2012

On a warm August evening we dined a fresco at La Tour du Vieux Port's riverside (Dordogne) 'annexe,' right across the road from the hotel. It was excellent and in itself a very good reason to go on a driving holiday in France. Here they take cooking very seriously, with service, on the occasion of our visit, by the maître and a couple of friendly hard working youngsters. What we ate was just excellent and we can't wait to return for some more Tartare d'Avocat aux Crevettes (which introduces a whole new slant to our familiar avocado with prawns); Salade brick de Chèvre; Rognon de Veau grillé persillade; Côte de Veau grillée provençale; "the best ever" crême brulée and a jolly nice choc ice. With a half of Mouton Cadet and another of Badoit, the bill came to €84 - or £68 - before service. The last meal we had which approached this standard was at London's Le Gavroche. That meal was also very good and it cost considerably more than £68.
