Le Caillau is located in a beautiful part of the countryside, set amongst acres of rolling vineyards. Our party ate outside under umbrellas on a balmy May afternoon and found the courtyard to be very peaceful and attractive. Service was fantastic, friendly, patient and not...over-bearing. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and just on the right side of experimental with its choice of flavour and texture. We had a delicious red to pair with our lamb fillets and 3 hours faded away rapidly! Would highly recommend.More

By any measure dining at Caillau is always a wonderful experience. The location is unique and memorable and whether you are seated indoors in the converted barn, or outside in the courtyard, it is highly atmospheric. Nestled among the vineyards in the Lot river valley,...there are stunning views. Great service is also a feature. Family owned and run, the host and his staff are friendly, helpful, keen to please and highly professional. To top it all the food is of the highest quality, with varied and imaginative menus. It is definitely one of our top choices in the area and highly recommended.More

We ate at Le Caillau on New Years Eve. The food, service, ambiance and room all contributed to a perfect way to spend the last evening of the year...... . We had an absolutely amazing meal. We have had lunch here before and the food...is always excellent but at New Year, even they managed to surpass themselves. Menu as follows Amuse bouche ~ Chestnut velouté ~ Seared scallops, braised fennel, orange and ginger sauce ~ Beef fillet, honey roasted winter veg, parsnip puree, sauce foie gras ~ Local cheese selection, walnut and apple salad, homemade chutney ~ Raspberry mousse with a chocolate ganache centre, chocolate macaron biscuit, red fruits The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. The building is refurbished beautifully and we had the table for the whole evening. It was amazing value for money and you also had the opportunity to chose their wine pairing suggestions as a package or by the glass if you so chose. The service was superb, the food was fabulous (my only complaint is I didn't manage to obtain the Chestnut volute recipe..... next time !!!). I cannot recommend a visit highly enough. Thank you for a fabulous evening.More

We live a few 5 away from here during the summer and Le Caillau is one of the few restaurants that we visit more than once during the season. It is a lovely place to eat, whether sitting outside in the courtyard or inside in...the large barn-like room with views over the vines to the setting sun. There is space around the tables, so it is both busy and private at the same time, and the food is always good and sometimes outstanding. And, very important when finding places to eat in this area, the menu changes and the chef offers new dishes as well as favourites. The hosts are English residents who really know their business, who hire really helpful staff, listen to feedback and make their customers feel at home. It is best to book, especially in the height of the season. Enjoy.More

Set in amongst the vines, this is a restaurant that tickles the tastebuds before you even go through the door. The converted barn has been very well done, and is just oozing character. We went on a Sunday, so the menu had about 3-4 choices...of each course. Wine list was extensive, though a bit on the pricey side. The food was good, though it sort of missed the vava voom of other restaurants we had been too. Maybe it was just the choice on the day, its hard to get something for everyone. I would definitely go back againMore

An excellent restaurant and quality food with beautiful surroundings in the heart of a vineyard. Good English spoken taking some of the challenges of choosing the right thing for you. Definitely up for a return when next we visit the area.

This restaurant has the most fabulous setting. It’s an absolute MUST for ambience. Food is OK. Drinks are seriously measured and over-priced.
