Detour when touring Bergerac

Second visit, having been four years before. Good value menu du jour but no options, three courses as it comes. Nothing much around there but if you are on the outskirts of Bergerac worth putting in the sat nav.

We wanted to visit "Seignoret Les Tours" to try thier (fabulous) wine, but were a little early to visit so decided to take a cafe in Saussignac, which is just a few minutes away. The setting is beautiful, just gorgeous, and the outdoor tables sit beneath vines which grow accross a trellace. Really gorgeous. However the lady who greet us... More

We went as a family of five wanting an authentic French restaurant meal that was NOT designed for tourists. We ate outside, overlooking the pretty village square on a hot summer's evening, and ate great food - frankly what's not too like? We booked in advance - and needed to; the restaurant filled up with locals whilst we were there.... More

M and Mme welcomed us back and Le Lion d'Or is still one of my favourite French restaurants - please visit if you are staying in the area. Try l'escargot and cannette with a bottle of Belingard rose.

Only a small restaurant so always better to book ahead if possible. Run by a husband and wife team, the former being chef and madam attending to everything else.Food is of a good quality, recommendations of wines readily given and all in all a most delightful quaint French restaurant which is atmospheric, welcoming and a splendid place to call, Madam...

We stay locally each year and return to this restaurant. It is small with a limited menu and we have never had anything other than excellent food and service. We love it. The owner is delightful and friendly and speaks good English. French hospitality at it's best. Good, rustic, food with a few surprises. Excellent wine list and value for... More

The welcome on a quiet night, hot & sunny was charming & also not over stuffy. The setting was perfect, the 5 of us sat outside under the hanging vines, a table cloth & cloth napkins were speaking of good things to come & come they did. The small menu shows to me that there is real care taken in... More

Lovely host and hostess, limited but exciting menu and a meal to remember. The suggested wine was a local,chateau feely and was delicious. It was a very warm evening (unusually very hot even for there) so we ate outside and enjoyed three luscious courses. Our only concern was we had two teenagers but having checked the menu decided to feed... More
