Enjoyed it!

I categorise this restaurant as 'very good' because the location is exceptional, value for money is v good and the quality is good. When we drove thru the nearest town the other restaurants looked the type which would serve frozen dishes. Locals seem to come here for food at lunch. Best to book.

Very small place, outside of Le Eyzies. You walk across the road and up an incline. This is located at the cave of the same name. Nice variety on the menu, including salads and sandwiches, but our group of eight agreed the food was only average. The waiter was pleasant and spoke good English upon prompting. We had a variety...

We stopped here for lunch with our local professional guide. We were spending the day visiting the Early Man cave paintings. We were quite impressed with the meals. The entrecôte was generous, richly flavored and tender. The grilled duck was rich and flavorful. What we thought was going to be a passable lunch turned into a real treat.

This is a regular stop for tour buses. I was traveling solo so I was given a charming table away from the crowd. I enjoyed a perfect regional lunch of foie gras, bread, salad of local greens and fresh walnuts and a crisp glass of rose. A great way to kill some time until the Laugerie Basse exhibits re-opened at... More

This place may seem like a tourist trap but it is not! I had a delicious lunch there with my family all food is homemade, there was hardly any wait and the lady that owns the place was very welcoming! The view was also beautiful.

The location is great, underneath a rock shelter. The breeze was cool on a hot day. I had a sandwich and dessert which were both tasty and just right for a hot day.

Good value basic food - a pleasant change from some of the local frites-based snack bars. Some genuine home-cooked dishes plus more commonly found snacks. Great location on a rock plateau half way up a limestone cliff just north of Les Eyzies, frequented by locals as well as tourists.

We were on a guided tour with author and cave expert Christine Desdemain-Hugon and she suggested this place for lunch. It is owned and run by a family and was only 15 euros per person including wine and coffee. Christine pointed out many prominent locals who make this their "regular" for lunch and we could easily understand why. Great food,... More

A friend and I had arranged an entire day with an internationally-known Ice Age cave art expert. After touring two of the caves, our guide suggested lunch at Laugerie Basse in Les Eyzies. It is charming but unpretentious, run by a husband and wife. The wife acts as hostess, the husband is the chef. The indoor part of the restaurant... More
