I was on holiday in Calviac-en-Perigord recently and was told this was a restaurant that I should visit. I was not disappointed. Great venue overlooking the Dordogne, English spoken really well and a Limousin steak to die for. Excellent service, good value and lovely surroundings.

Have eaten here a few times over the years, and for a summer lunch, the location cannot be beaten. This is backed up by friendly and efficient service, and food, that while limited in choice, is excellent, and beautifully served. This is a mile away from a tourist team, and is better for it. If you want a glass of... More

The setting is wonderful but do make sure to use mossie guard before you go as you are next to the river. The food was excellent, we had fillet steaks , fish and all were superb. Advise able to book as we saw many people turned away.

Perched up above the Dordogne river , a lovely setting . Weather permitting , reserve a table outside. Very good food , all local produce and a very good place to take guests which we frequently do , as we live in the area. Very charming , friendly service.

We were recommended this restaurant as the ideal place for a small family gathering. However reserving a table is not easy as they don't reply to e mails and only occasionally answer the phone. After much effort we managed to get a reservation but when we turned up they had no record of it. The unhelpful waiter didn't seem in... More

We booked this restaurant and asked for a terrace table overlooking the Dordogne. When we arrived we were welcomed as old friends and made to feel very welcome. The glass of champagne in the cooling evening coupled with some excellent wines and first class food made a wonderful evening for all. The food is excellent and most any dish you... More

My wife and I went here having read the many positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We booked a day in advance and asked for a table on the terrace overlooking the river which we were given. It's true to say that the setting is impressive; the view overlooking the river is really good on a warm Summer's evening. The restaurant takes... More

This restaurant is located right on the banks of the Dordogne River in sleepy St Julien de Lampon. It is a small, seemingly, family owned restaurant with charming upper and lower interior rock-walked and exposed beamed dining rooms and an outdoor terrace for al fresco dining on warm evenings. The menu is brought to your table on a framed chalk... More

We went for a late lunch today in La Gabarre after recommendation by our B&B in Cieurac. Great food - and an imaginative chef who goes beyond the standard menu in the region known for Foie Gras & Canard. Highly preferred above the overpriced tourist traps in Souillac! Will be going back soon :)

Six friends dining out in a superb venue next to the Domme. We all had excellent meals, with the vegetarian member of the group declaring that it was the best vegetarian meal he had ever had in France. The service was excellent and friendly, with staff speaking better English than our schoolboy/girl French. The choice of wines were good, as... More
