Entering this restaurant, one passes by the hotel desk, strewn with papers, flying in all directions. Sometimes you will see a cat walking across the desk as you go into the absolutely lovely, old fashioned and most feminine dining room. It is a step back in time and well worth the trip! The delightful Madame, with her sweet smile and... More

Someone else mentioned Fawlty Towers and that is somewhat spot on. Who can't love this place in all of its quirkiness? The dining room is over the top with color and Frenchness. The elderly woman who serves is so delightful and seems content to have you as her only table in the evening. I am not a cat lover but... More

We stumbled onto this restaurant on a quiet Tuesday night as we found the restaurant we'd been meaning to visit closed. I didn't check the other reviews beforehand, but had a good chuckle reading them as our experience was quite similar, although lacking slapstick incidents involving the cat. The cat did make a quick appearance, but luckily went unnoticed by... More

Stayed here for only one night, as we were late getting to Montignac. We stayed in the annex. We went down to the restaurant and had dinner in the garden, served by this lovely little lady, I think her name was Marie. All was very good and hospitality was super. The owner fourth generation was lovely as well. Overall a... More

Read the other two reviews first to get the flavour ! We had a stray dog stuck in the steam which the chef did an admirable job of rescuing! BUT definitely a touch of "mrs overall" . All pleasantans tasty food but took ages. An interesting experience but one we shall not repeat. The real complaint is that out of... More

We found this restaurant after working our way through Montignac late on a Sunday night. Everything was fully booked or closed. La Grotte was open and we were greeted by a very gracious older woman into a fabulously overdone dining room...paintings cover the walls, all the tables are fully set with table cloths, glasses and multiple cutlery, rugs on the...

We have eaten here several times and each time we go away smiling - which can't be bad. It is an old, somewhat faded, elegant restaurant & hotel, in the heart of Montignac on the roadside beside the river. It has a lovely old romantic restaurant complete with candelabra, chair covers with bows, and worn persian rugs scattered about the... More
