Beautiful Setting, Delicious Food

We ate at the Moulin last night, it was superb. The food delicious, staff attentive and the setting delightful. We were slightly nervous of what our bill might be at the end of the evening, but actually it wasn't so bad - for those with a slightly limited budget there is an evening set menu at... read more

Lost its Michelin star when the chef left. Still charges the same astronomical prices for its food. Pretentious and fussy. Will never go back as there are better restaurants in Brantome

Gorgeous location, a very special evening. We had a meal here for our last night and it was a beautiful setting on the terrace by the river. The service is impeccable, food fantastic and the wine was great. Don't go here on a budget though, be prepared to hand your card over and not look at the bill or you... More

This story book hotel has a lovely restaurant right down on the river. The pictures you see are accurate. Our dinner here was the most expensive on the trip but it was one of the finest. Staff is very attentive but pleased make reservations.

We pushed the boat out to have dinner here on a holiday, but it was SO exceptional, we couldn't resist returning for another round.... Faultless food, and unparalleled service, in an idyllic setting.

We were in Brantome a couple of weeks ago and on our last evening decided to splash out and have a meal at Le Moulin. We had walked past the hotel and restaurant and it looked so beautiful. It is in such an idyllic spot and was ranked highly by Michelin. Well, the meal we had was outstanding and we... More

Staying in Bergerac at the other half's parents holiday home. I had the lobster starter and fillet of beef main and it was great. Washed down with a bottle of Cahor Malbec. Great meal well worth a visit.

A beautiful summer day, the terrace over the river, the gorgeous view over the Brantôme abbey, a Relais et Châteaux establishment, everything should have been in place for a wonderful experience. However, it turned out to be quite disappointing. First, food clearly lacked originality and creativity. The 49 € menu offered stuffed duck liver and "magret de canard", two dishes... More
