What a fabulous restaurant. Madame was totally charming and nothing was too much for her. The food was divine. We had such a fabulous time the first night we booked again for the following night and, if anything, the food and service was even better. Specialising in local food and local wine is a fabulous combination. On the second night... More

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

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 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...
