Reviewed 17 August 2009

When we travel in Europe we carry a Michelin Red Guide and we look for the starred restaurants. We've dined at many of the world's greatest restaurants including El Bulli and Arzak in Spain, Troisgros and Michel Guerard in France, etc.

One of the very best meals we've ever enjoyed was at La Plume d Oie. This small restaurant is truly superb.

You might considerf the hostess to be a bit pushy. Get over it. She's just a perfectionist who wants you to have the best possible dining experience. Lean back and enjoy.

We've booked another trip to France this Fall. La Plume d Oie is at the top of our list.

Stayed: September 2007, travelled with family

Mark & Hiddy gave us the best foodie experience we had in a gluttony of amazing food experiences across France including out-ranking two of Paris' best restaurants. This must become a key stop of every person looking for amazing dishes in SW France - and probably most of France. Big call but worthy of it. Even the breakfast blew us away with the truffled scrambled eggs served in a hollowed out egg shell to their bread and gorgeous fruit.
Mark was very helpful with our bikes in the hotel which was clean, comfortable and great views.

We had the great good pleasure of having a meal at this wonderful restaurant. We were charmed by our hostess, Hiddy, and Mark, the chef, served us one of the most fabulous meals you can imagine. From the amuse bouche of a pumpkin/chestnut soup to the most wonderful poached pear combination for dessert, the meal was a complete success.

My husband and I stayed at this small and charming auberge during a tour of the Dordogne region. La Roque-Gageac's beauty is well documented and deservedly so. A Green river with golden reflections explored by boat trip from the village produced a peaceful, contented feeling which was only enhanced by the comfortable room with pretty little balconette giving a view onto the lovely river.

But this is a restaurant with rooms rather than a hotel and to stay here and not dine would be a serious mistake. Gordon Ramsey eat your heart out! Marc Walker is the real deal. We are both vegetarians - in France most restauranteurs seem to view this as a personal insult! We gave a few days advance notice and Marc produced a fabulous meal for us. The apperitif was chilled white wine with a floral scent - elderflower cordial made in house was added - and it really hit the spot. Dinner was several courses of a delightful blend of flavours and textures - showing that vegetarian cuisine can be every bit as exciting in the hands of a master chef. All ingedients were fresh and perfectly cooked. The dishes were lovely to look at too. The best meal of the holiday was enjoyed here. The restaurant itself is very pretty with a lovely view onto the river. It is a comfortable and charming place to sit and we lingered over coffee.

We slept well in the comfortable and tastfully furnished simple room and the bill was very reasonable given the quality of the food we had enjoyed.

Marc and Hiddly Walker were friendly and we certainly look forward to staying there again when we return to the lovely Dordogne River.

Contrary to a recent review by 'Apollinaire' we stayed at this comfortable, well run and scrupulously clean Auberge
around the same time. We found the owners friendly, helpful
and congenial. Our room welcoming after a day out in this gorgeous area. Ours was a most memorable stay in this
lovely village

My husband and I returned to La Plume because of fond memories of a past visit, hoping that not too much would have changed. We were not disappointed. I requested the same room overlooking the river and with a small balcony. It is a wonderful spot to relax after a busy day of sightseeing. The highlight of each day, however, is always dinner prepared by Marc Walker. My husband has been describing the food to friends and relatives here in the U. S. for the past five years and he was delighted to find nothing had changed in the kitchen. During our stay, we were introduced to another American couple. The husband, who had stayed there in past on a business trip, had also returned because of fond memories, this time bringing his wife. Like us they were not disappointed. The little garden in the rear turned out the be a mini gathering place for folks to rest and share experiences. This time we expanded our local touring to include the prehistoric cave art around Lascaux as well as some local castle/towns and Josephine Baker's chateau for those of you "of a certain age." Ask Hiddy for direction to some incredible gardens with awsome views of the Dodogne valley and La Roque. La Plume d'Oie is the perfect spot for travelers who like a homey atmosphere, incredible cooking and two very special people to take care of them. Mary Lou Knurek, Irvine, CA

Having rembered it fondly from a trip in 1993, we stayed at the La Plume d'Oie for 3 nights in Septmeber and enjoyed it greatly. As its name 'Auburge" implies the La Plume d'Oie is not principally a hotel. Rather, it is a small, intimate, and well located place to stay while enjoying the area and particularly its wonderful restruant with imaginative food, a great chef, and a beautiful setting. I would not recommend it to someone looking only for a place to stay, but would highly recommend it to someone who would enjoy a spectacular dinner from which they can walk up stairs to a small but cozy and attractive room with a view of the Dordogne River and the next morning walk downstairs to the best breakfast ever. For one who prefers small hotels, beauty and simplicity but not 'glitz' and especially great food it is a unique and charming place. It has our highest recommendation.
