Situated at the summit of the medieval town of Domme, on the Esplanade, which dominates the Dordogne valley. From the restaurant, which is shaded in harmonious yellow and blue to the rooms with antique furniture, you can experience and enjoy the Dordogne thanks to cuisine based on the flavours of the south-west intensified by inventive notes.

Not worth the price

The food is very sophisticated, sometimes too much, nicely put on the plate but very small portions and nothing to write home about. The view from the resturant is amazing.

On a sunny day, perched on the cliff overlooking the Dordogne, this terrace is hard to beat. It is a well established family business, welcoming locals and tourists alike. We have known it for twenty years and have enjoyed every meal there. The lunch we enjoyed recently was a perfect blend of traditional and innovative. The menu was varied, offering... More

The restaurant is in a stunning location, with views out over the countryside from Domme. On a warm evening, it was a lovely ambiance. But, the restaurant is just not up to the standard of the league they are trying to play in. The service was excruciatingly slow (e.g. it took over an hour and a quarter just to get... More

Loved everything on the menu. Pricey, but completely worth the experience. The foie gras and lamb were our favorites. And the chocolate cake and strawberry tart. So so good!

I have provided details of the restaurant and our meal in my hotel review, but suffice to say that if you enjoy food and eating, you will have a truly wonderful experience!

This is my second experience at this restaurant, first one goes back several years. In my first visit I stayed at the hotel too but this was just a quick day trip and we were as impressed as before. As before the service and meal were absolute among the very best I have ever enjoyed! The ingredients are obviously fresh... More

We spotted this delightful restaurant on our first visit to Domme at the beginning of our stay in Cenac-et-St-Julien and decided it was just the place for my birthday lunch. We were not disappointed. We were able to sit out on the terrace with the most remarkable views and enjoy a superbly cooked and beautifully presented three course meal. Service... More

The location is a winner, the setting is elegant the service is polite and attentive and the food is great. It all came out to a dinner we loved! At first we had some aperitif in the balcony over the amazing valley views which put us in the right mood. The dinner it self was well prepared and very enjoyable.... More

Charming place to spend the night but not a lot of amenities for the price. Small room (decent bathroom) you even have to carry your suitcases up 2 flights of stairs. But you're paying for the view which is magnificent: perched atop a tiny picturesque town, it's really lovely.
