The restaurant is out of town, but an easy drive. We went in the summer, when the terrace is in use; the tables are well-spaced and surrounded by greenery. On a quiet Sunday evening, the ambiance was tranquil and relaxed. The menu is dominated by meat, with a couple of fish dishes available - it would present difficulties to a... More

We have dined at La Garenne many times. It is not only good, but consistently so. Interesting fixed-price menus focus on regional dishes, which are beautifully presented. Service, led by Mme Carrendier is stylish, efficient and friendly - just as consistent as the food. The dining room, in what seems to be a converted barn, is relaxed and comfortable. In... More

First lunch of the summer at La Garenne yesterday. It's still just as good as ever, and some "tweaks" to the menu are very welcome. The omelette aux truffes now features on the prix fixe, as opposed to a la carte only, and the addition of a daily special adds variety. In our case it was kidneys in pepper sauce,... More

The restaurant is well signed off the main road, it is quiet with a lovely courtyard garden when the weather is good. Our lunch was fantastic, the service prompt what more can you ask!

Top food in a top class restaurant with very accomplished service. Perfectly balanced meal left us both feeling very happy. We went for the lighter and cheaper €30 set menu. We both had the gravadlax which came with a delightful green salad with bursts of red peppercorns and a unique tomato sorbet - perhaps not to everyone's tastes but I... More

We went here while visiting friends who live in the area. We one of the menus and started with an excellent foie gras. This is one of our favorite dishes and we are very picky about how it is cooked. I have to say this is one of the best we've had. The rest of the meal was excellent, too.... More

La Garenne is situated about 10 minutes north of Cahors on the Brive major road, but set back so is quiet and tranquil. The dining room is an old stone barn nicely decorated. The standard of cuisine is high and good value. The staff are really pleasant with ready smiles. We are French speakers but they made the effort to... More

From the moment you arrive to be warmly greeted by Madame Carrendier and seated, in summer on the lovely shady terrace, or in winter in the warm dining room, a great experience is assured. Impeccable and friendly service, an interesting wine list, and Michel Carrendier's exquisite food. This summer, try the morue cannelloni, the mullet, the delicious veal - or... More

Not the easiest of locations to find (exit 57 from the A20 motorway north of Cahors) but well worth a small detour. We first discovered La Garenne a decade ago, and try to plan our travel to the south of France via Cahors just so as to be able to return to enjoy a meal here. In the summer meals... More
