We arrived late with no booking and they squeezed us in. Amazing value with a good wine choice and friendly staff. Even with only 2 choices we struggled to choose as both sounded so good and the food tasted as good as it sounded.

We live close by and the Dolce Vita is our ‘local’ restaurant. The lunch menu varies every day and there are always two choices for each of three courses for a very reasonable €12.50. The owners, Frédérique and Christophe, have recently acquired an adjacent house which is being prepared as a Chambre d’Hotes and the large garden is used in... More

Our recent visit with friends to this restaurant was as good as every other visit we have made since it opened 7 years ago. The food is always beautifully presented and tastes amazing. The carafe of local wine is excellent both in value and quality. My wife and I find the staff very welcoming and efficient and the whole ambiance... More

The restaurant changed hands in July 2014. Still lovely atmosphere and good quality, simple food. Friendly staff and wonderful garden area beside former cloisters.

The quality of the food at this restaurant was fabulous. It felt like we were eating in a top class London restaurant not a small local restaurants in the side streets of Villereal. The decor was not to our taste, overly pink and a bit garish but don't let this put you off, you would be missing out not to... More

Hidden away down a side street in this lovely Dordogne town, we found this great little restaurant. The 12.50 euros set lunchtime menu of 3 courses is excellent value for the standard of the food and service (the sauces are particularly good), and a carafe of local wine to go with it is very reasonably priced. It was very busy... More

I'm not sure about this chef. Delicate scallops, cooked competently, were mixed with fine slices of super-spicy chorizo - taste clashes, bizarre, and in our view, not at all successful. For good measure, the slow-cooked lamb shank was also polluted with chorizo which was off-putting, but the main problem with the lamb shank was that it wasn't slowly cooked, indeed... More

Despite its name this is not an Italian restaurant but one serving a mix of traditional and modern French for lunch and dinner. The husband and wife team work hard to offer superb food with great service and lots of smiles!! Makes a great lunch venue when touring the surrounding Bastides.

Ate as a family of five, 2 adults and 3 teenage boys with very healthy appetites. Went here as previous reviews looked good. The decor was slightly strange for a back street in a small French town. Purple signage, then pink velour seats, black tables and cherubs scattered liberally throughout. Service a little slow, but very polite, helpful & courteous... More
