About
Set in the medieval ramparts of Issigeac we are a family run restaurant offering delicious soups & starters, mouth watering sandwiches & paninis, tasty salads, scrumptious desserts, homemade cakes & a wide assortment of drinks including local wines, a full coffee menu, soft drinks & the cocktail "Le Doyenné". We have a regular changing menu du jour and Sunday menu and offer inside or outside seating on our terrace. When the sun is shining it is a delight to relax on our terrace which is south west facing so you can enjoy the sunshine all afternoon. Our carrot cake is becoming legendary here and is rarely off the menu (unless of course it is sold out). As well as delicious food you can be assured

This quirky little place served us an excellent, good value 3-course lunch yesterday as we returned guests to Bergerac airport Prettily presented food, and good service amongst the eclectic mix of collectibles. Decent loo too, which isn’t always the case!

What a lovely surprise lunch. We had been searching for somewhere to eat on a Monday lunchtime in early September and found Le Doyenne tucked away on a back street. We sat outside in a shaded courtyard garden and were treated to a delicious lunch....More

Le Doyenne is doing absolutely everything right - interesting menu, creatively presented, well cooked, charmingly served, delightful setting....what more does one require? 'Chapeau' to the team - you deserve to succeed. Another feather in Issigeac's culinary hat.
