I booked this restaurant a few weeks before our overnight stay in Perigeux. I knew it had a hard act to follow as the previous 3 nights we had stayed at a Michelin starred restaurant for a friend's special birthday. We were not disappointed. This was attractively presented, good cooking at a very reasonable price. Really good value. The wine... More

Excellent recommendation by our hotel receptionist. Classy restaurant popular with locals so that is a good recommendation in itself. Excellent food, good presentation, good service, quiet despite restaurant being full. Catered for Gluten-free.

The place is nice, the plates look good. This is all that is positive about the restaurant. Unfortunately the food that looks good does not taste good. Crab as appetizer then duck breast with foie gras followed by a dessert with figs and sorbet. All looking nice, but tastes horrible. I could not chew the duck breast, the crab was... More

We are coming back every year and are never disappointed. Don't miss the foie gras, the duck, ris de veau, etc. And excellent service. The recommended white wine was superb. Thanks Romain and its team.

The restaurant was recommended to us and having been there we do know why: high quality food and service in a lovely ambiance. In particular, we loved the foie gras with boudin noir as a starter.

Beautiful presentation, imaginative and filling three-course lunch, just a couple of minutes walk from Saint Front Cathedral. My hat is tipped to the owner(s) and staff. Thank you. Reasonable prices for the menus and the wines and house aperitif. The best I had on a two week stay in France. Highly recommended.

This is a very significant and popular restaurant. We visited it shortly after it opened some years ago. We wanted to return and booked through 'The Fork' and the reservation was duly confirmed. However, several days later 'The Fork' cancelled our reservation claiming it was beyond their control. This was not true. I called the restaurant direct and was told... More
