Friends recommended this restaurant and we were quite eager to go. The setting is very romantic and lovely in a small, elegant 19 room hotel. We had 8:00 reservations and were escorted to the upstairs salon where we were expected to have an apéritif. We were given a small "fancy something" with it which was quite good. We were given...

I was most impressed with this hotel. We booked the romantic package and went on a river cruise, visited caves and a castle in the local area, all within a short drive. The staff were very friendly, the setting idyllic and Brantome itself very picturesque. Definitely stay here, do upgrade to a suite if you can. Two issues of non... More

Situated on the riverbank this restaurant has potential but it hasn't yet reached the expected standard. The nut bread was excellent, and there was a plentiful supply of breads but unfortunately the fish was very overcooked. I hope this was just an exception, but I am quite surprised the chef let the plate leave the kitchen. Service was OK, but... More

This hotel is everything you hope a small French Country Hotel will be. Impeccable service. Food was some of the best ever tasted and the ambience was refined. Everything we all ate was spectacular!!

Excellent food, perfect service, stunning location. This was a special night, we ate outside, the servers speak enough English to communicate.

This really is a magical location for a restaurant, especially on a balmy summer evening. The menu is small yet inventive, the service immaculate, complemented by an extensive wine list. Expensive but worth it, particularly for a special occasion.
