Of all the many restaurants I have been to in France, this is right up there. Dining al fresco overlooking the beautiful old village of Saint Genies is a fantastic experience. Add the friendly waiter and the gorgeous food and you have all the ingredients for a brilliiant experience. It's a little bit out of the way, but definitely worth... More

What more could you ask for? Superb local food out on a garden terrace with excellent local wine, on a summer's evening looking out onto the local church with swifts feeding on the wing. A great relaxed evening first went there 20 years ago and the atmosphere has remained the same.

Without any sense of rush, we sat outside as our wonderful meal progressed and enjoyed the sun setting over the enchanting cathedral and old houses. We sipped our drinks and watched the swallows sweeping through the sky as shadows lengthen on the hay field on the hill beyond... More

On holiday in the area we wanted a taste of Perigord and chose this restaurant for dinner. We were made most welcome - the waiter spoke fluent English (we even discussed the chances of England and France in the Rugby World Cup) and gave good advice on the menu and wine list. We had some local specialities and thought the... More
