We had the cassoulet, the fully loaded crepe (almost like a full English in a pancake!) and a Croque Monsieur. All absolutely delicious. Lovely view, good service and a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

We were after a snack and drink between lunch and dinner service,after kayaking along the Vezere and Bar L'Ovalie was perfect. A very welcoming and accommodating waitress served us lovely Croque Madames and salad followed by a huge ice-cream. Just what we needed!

I could not believe that this positively stunning riverside venue rates so low down on TA. We received wonderful service, outstanding salads and at decent prices. God range in the menu. Notable historic plaque on wall recording arrest of a WW2 resistance hero.

The bridge to the other side of the town was still closed for renovation works so this side of the river was quiet, which was quite nice. It was one of the first lovely days of the year, clear skies and warm, so it was...More
