“Best of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

What a wonderful experience, visited in Early October for lunch with the degustation menu. This is simply put what other restaurants should strive to achieve, the Maitre'D had that refined discerning professionalism that truly makes the dining experience second to none. The food was exceptional and they really do deserve their Michelin Star. Would love to go back and spend 2 -3 days at the hotel and enjoying the restaurant and the country ambiance.

“An exceptional experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Le Vieux Logis absolutely deserves its Michelin star. We lunched in late August in the garden enjoying the exceptional value of the tapas menu. It was such a special place, the food, the garden and the service all combined to make this a delightful experience. Well worth making the effort of an hours drive from Domme. I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates the love and care that obviously goes into making a visit here an exquisite experience.

“off the beaten track Dordogne for discerning gourmets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We had a wonderful experience fo 2 nights and 2 days, where we spent breakfast, lunch and dinner in the hotel restaurant : we did not want to leave. Every time, the Maitre D would cheerfully welcome our sons with delicious variations of the kid menu : they had their own foie gras and enjoyed eating like adults (with friendly prices and children portions). All the waiters were equally professional yet never pretentious. The young sommelier is so passionate, we came back with a huge list of wine to buy. The crowd was a mix of French and foreigners, young couples, older ones, families, a few children but not too many. Everybody seemed happy and cheerful in a relaxed yet elegant atmosphere. Congratulaations to the chef and to the owner for managing such a perfect place. Same can be said about the hotel !

“Amazing and beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Le Vieux Logis is a Michelin-starred restaurant in Tremolat. It's in the most glorious small hotel and the dining area (where we ate anyway) is under a wonderful arbor of trees. On a sunny day this gives the most beautiful lighting of dappled shade and was such a lovely feeling.
We had the 9-course lunch, which I think is the only choice but I may be wrong, with the Maitre d' first checking if there was any allergies or things we didn't like. A couple of us had some minor requests which were beautifully handled.
The food was outstanding - small portions so don't be concerned by the number of courses. My hosts picked some wonderful wines and the entire experience was relaxing, lengthy and delicious.
My hosts frequently go for dinner but they say they now prefer lunch as it's a little more relaxing than dinner from the point of view of dress code etc. (which is smart casual, short sleeved shirts are find but slogan t-shirts and flip flops probably less so) and the general feeling.
The staff is outstanding and the owner visited every table to pass on his best wishes and hope that everyone was having a great experience. He was a very charming, soft-spoken man and it was lovely to see him there.
Overall this was an outstanding visit. The food was delicious - though for me it was more about the experience (tree arbor, staff, weather, environment etc.) than the food as I may have less elevated tastes. Though I will say that the first course of little tiny pastries was one of the best things I've ever eaten. I was treated to lunch so don't know the cost per person; my guess is that it's on the high end as it's such a wonderful experience that you rarely get to have, so therefore thoroughly worth every centime.
