Ok, the place is well outside the tourist area, and the decor looks dated. But you get to park hassle free, the seating is spacious, and the toilet is super clean. And you are there for the food, right? I went for the menu degustation and had neither the time, nor the grounds to complain and/or regret. I was kept... More

No wonder this restaurant is a Michelin selection. Nicolas turned the restaurant over to our group of 29 and what a treat he provided. Our prix fixe menu included a soup, ouefs en cocotte, duck ravioli (both my choices and just fabulous) or fish, with pommes tart or chocolate for dessert. The presentation was gorgeous and the service impeccable. Nothing... More

We had a very pleasant visit to the restaurant. The foie gras and rib of beef were superb. Service was fantastic. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars was the lack of salad or vegetables with the meal.

One of the two best restaurants of our trip happened to be in Perigeux. We started with the soft boiled egg floating on a red pepper sauce. The entree was excellent duck confit with homemade pasta sheet on top in a goat cheese sauce. The cod was served on a bed of greens with mushrooms and sun dried tomato. The... More

We enjoyed one of our best meals in France at Nicola's L. The presentation, and freshness of ingredients along with their flavours was outstanding. Service was also excellent.

The only drawback of this restaurant is finding it. Once there, all is to enjoy: the setting (especially on the little terrace), the service, and the food. We took the day's menu and were delighted by the originality of the food, the care with which different products were matched, the level at which tastes were integrated, and the overall quality...

Small, non-tourist restaurant outside the historic centre near the fire station and gendarmerie. Planted little terrace overlooking a rather uninteresting square. Small menu; two starters, 4 mains; 3 desserts. 2 small "verrine" type "amuse-bouche" offered which were lovely. All the food we had was excellent... Clearly local and fresh but not typically Perigourdine (the chef/owner is from the very North... More

I must admit to visiting this restaurant purely in response to a previous mediocre review. I am of the opinion that some people will find fault with anything either because they are negative or they think it makes them sound more interesting. The setting of the restaurant is little more than a 4 min walk from the cathedral and although... More

We had a very good dinner here last week, and we would like to return. That's the main thing. It was a mostly positive experience. A smiling welcome. No long waits to be served, or between courses, though at the limit -- we recognize that we like to finish faster, perhaps, than most diners. Quantity correct. One didn't leave the... More
