This restaurant is an absolute gem. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the food is exquisite, the atmosphere homey. We ate here two successive nights with friends and were delighted to find different menus on each night, each of which was outstanding. We celebrated our anniversary on one of the nights and were treated to singing in our honor... More

A beautiful setting but the food was rather disappointing. We had very high expectations, which is probably half the problem. The staff was either over the top or rather snobby, it was very strange. As far as I am concerned, it was a mixed experience for a lot of money.

Absolutely brilliant, I can't talk highly enough of La Gabarre, we visited this a couple of times during our stay in the region and no one left disappointed!The food was exquisite, the menu might have been small, with only four dishes to choose from per course; however everything was delicious and superbly cooked. The service was warm and friendly, with... More

Visited this restaurant with friends after hearing good reports. Was very disappointed with the overall appearance of the restaurant, very shabby and no atmosphere whatsoever. Food was very good indeed if a little overpriced. With what they charge for the food, one would have thought they'd have spent a little of their profits buying tablecloths, place mats that actually match,... More

We prebook we the restaurant online before we went on holiday and we turned up at the restaurant being given a table on the terrace with an amazing view over the Dordogne River. Our waiter was so friendly and spoke great English, explaining every dish in detail for us. They offer 3 set menus with the cheapest being at €14.50... More

We went today for the first but certainly not the last time. We were welcomed and shown to our table by a smiling waitress who then brought over the menu board and explained the menu du jour and also that you can mix and match from all three menus and they would just alter the bill accordingly. They have three... More

This has to be one of the best restaurants I have visited - not just for the food, but the total experience. You must book, for the locals love it too, so even out of season it is busy. I have been twice, and will go many more times, as we have just bought a place nearby. You are made... More

Believe what the others are saying - it is a great place to eat. Only warning is that you must book- when we rang they said "When we aren't fully booked we are shut". Visit on a warm evening to savour the lovely food and wonderful views over the river.

Always a challenge to repeat a great experience. But our visit to La Gabarre confirmed the great experience we had before. Relaxing atmosphere, nice terrace, and very nice dishes selected from the chalkboard (combinations possible so sufficient choice for everyone). One of the only restaurants also offering to take the remains of your great Malbec bottle back home for some... More
