Saw this restaurant on our walk around Beynac-et-Cazenac and checked when they were open - “every night and kitchen closes after 9pm”. Tried TWICE to eat here, both times before 8.30pm, and turned away on both occasions. Once as owner had some problems at home,...More

But let's say it's catered to tourists... Portions are very small. Salads have a lot of... salad. Not much more. My 5 Euro glass of wine was... well... tiny. Glad I asked for fries with my salad or I'd have left hungry. Or more hungry...

Nothing major to write about this place. The service was spot on, our 9 year old was happy with his food. He had a burger, we had the salads, all very nice.

This restaurant is right next to the excellent Chateau de Beynac, and the quality is certainly fine if that's where you want to eat lunch. (Note that my three stars takes the great location as a given; I haven't given it an upgrade for that.)...More

Walked round the ancient town, needed a drink and popped in this place. Great location, very polite and English speaking staff and dog friendly. I had citron presse, not realising it is exactly that; freshly squeezed lemons! It comes with water and sugar but, wow,...More

Situated on the winding medieval road up to Beynac castle. This restaurant has two parts to it - an album fresco dining area by the castle wall and a covered restaurant terrace. It does crepes outside of key dining times - we were told when...More
