This restaurant is a real find situated as it is in the sleepy village of Saussignac. We were warmly greeted by the owners wife, and directed to our reserved table on the terrace, an ideal spot for those long warm summer evenings. The table was well laid but not fussy, and the menu was presented on a large chalk board.... More

I come here a couple of times a year and I love this place. The menu doesn't change much but all the dishes are excellent. The snail soup is wonderful and the fish is usually perfect. The desserts are simple but great. Go for the profiteroles. Run by a husband and wife from the Alsace - so can be hard... More

We have visited before and always enjoyed the cuisine. The evening was quiet as there was a fete in the next village. Our food was to the usual high standard with lovely table service from the owner. Couldn't fault the food or the suggested wines.

Just a 10 minute walk from Chateau Feely, we thoroughly enjoyed the lunch & dinner enjoyed here prepared by the "mom & pop" Madeleine & ? (the chef). Beautiful location in a wonderful little medieval village.

This little restaurant in the village of Saussignac is far out of the tourist track but frequented by many of the Brits who flock to Dordogne. Food is excellent, atmosphere a little tense.

This is a great place for a meal in Saussignac. We had reserved for dinner and sat out on the little terrace in front of the restaurant. The proprietors were very welcoming and friendly and helped us with our food choices. We shared a delicious starter of foie gras du canard - an extremely generous portion- and this was accompanied...

The food is all fresh and is prepared totally... More

Went for dinner as staying at Chateau Feely for a wine course. Lovely traditional French restaurant. Friendly and attentive service. Plain but tasty food and a pleasant spot to while away an hour or two. Would recommend the very garlicky scallops.

We have visited the Lion D'Or before and loved it, but decided last night to eat there at the last minute. Knowing that they serve last orders at 8.30, we phoned and they were so accommodating. We sat outside on the terrace which is delightful. As in out previous visits, the service, ambiance, food and house wine were all excellent.... More

We were slightly hesitant at visiting this restaurant due to the negative reviews it's received but we had a lovely lunch! We had cycled there and were greeted by the friendly owners. I had salmon which was fresh and delicious and my husband had the rack of lamb which was cooked beautifully. Very relaxed dining with a good wine list,... More
