We had lunch at the Repaire de Savinien and had a wonderful time there! All products are of excellent quality, fresh and seasonal. I had the "oeuf parfait", egg slowly cooked at 68° which came together with anchovies, radish, fennel and fresh herbs. It was not only perfect but also beautifully presented. Then I shared a piece of iberico pork... More

This is one of our favorites in Bergerac and we've visited a number of times. It's always a fun adventure and often excellent. During the winter they featured some interesting special menus based on the backgrounds of the staff members (a charming crew, by the way), including a Laotian-inspired meal that was fabulous! The selections change frequently based on the... More

We visited this restaurant last night and were disappointed, having enjoyed previous visits to Les Etincelles, Vincent Lucas's other restaurant in nearby Ste Sabine. We were aware that this was his bistro style place and that it had been awarded a Michelin bib gourmande. My starter of rillettes de lapin was far too large and my main course of scallops... More

Vincent Lucas has a starred restaurant in the area and this is his simpler town bistro/resto. Had a fixed 3 course lunch for effectively 21 euros per head - escallope of foie gras; an outstanding "chicken sausage/quenelle" and desert - perfect ingredients; excellent taste and presentation and plenty of food.... Great wine list and super service. The restaurant is very... More

My parents have a holiday home in the Dordogne and we often venture into Bergerac to have a walk around the market. We regularly eat at Le Repaire de Savinien and have never been disappointed. The warm foie gras in brioche is to die for!!!!!!! As one of our friends said "You can die a happy person after eating there!!!"... More

we came there (8 in total) on a recommendation from local winemaker. Nice and clean and simple interior, warm services (one of owners), meals described only with chalk on board, described by the service. Very good appetizers (we had foie gras, cassolet de moules+langoustines - simmmered in white wine with zucchini), Main - briche with foie gras + magret de... More
