Best restaurant in several years!

The best restaurant I have been to in recent years with not just stunning food but excellent personal care and service. Felt really welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. Do try the Beef!! Brilliant.

After a long day of house hunting, we agreed amongst the three of us that a nice, relaxing and delicious meal was just what the doctor ordered to soothe our aching feet and tired brains. And so we hopped onto TripAdvisor to aid us in our search, as one does. We read several reviews for Le Clos Saint Front and... More

Having read the reviews, we thought we would give it a try. We did wonder if we had actually visited the same place as everyone else... Such bizarre combinations of ingredients and flavours - foie gras and banana? Cold cauliflower puree and smoked haddock? Scallops with mushroom puree? Redeeming feature was the pigs cheek, but presentation let it down. It... More

We had a wonderful meal. The owner speaks wonderful English and rememberd an earlier visit by our friends. He was very knowledgeable especially about wine. The grilled fig dessert was amazing. The service was excellent.

This restaurant was delightful. The service was excellent and very friendly. The trio of fois gras was a highlight for me. Compared to UK prices, it was excellent value. We had been recommended to visit this restaurant by friends who had visited in the summer and were able to sit outside. It was a bit cold for that in early... More

What a nice surprise to find this little gem of a restaurant. The dining room is very elegant with its long white tablecloths, fresh flowers and artwork on the tables. But the best part of the evening is the food. Fresh, local specialities but originally prepared by chef/owner Patrick . The presentation is flawless, the taste, sublime! The service is... More

Imaginative cooking to a high standard. Service good despite being very busy on a Saturday night. Original dishes superbly presented. Attentive and welcoming staff who took a real interest in our selection of wine. Quite expensive - 150 euros for two - but good value. They did however over-charge - check carefully the menu charged.

It was our last night in Perigeux. We had had a large lunch but wanted to try this restaurant before leaving town and it did not disappoint. A bit difficult to find at night but unique. The outdoor patio is uninteresting but the indoor dining is white tablecloth and elegant. A little piece of bark held the fork and knife... More

I picked their Surprise Menu and I was not disappointed, it was excellent. The owner of the restaurant was so enthusiastic about the food they offered. I can highly recommend this gem in the center of Perigueux.

We were greeted by the host Patrick and seated at a great table in their diningroom. It was a rainy night and that made it very cozy. The Art and decor was exquisit! It set the theme for a very romantic and special evening. I had the surprise menu but Patrick did tell me what was going to be served.... More
