Found restaurant on Trip Advisor and took chance. 20minute walk from centre of town (should have taken car) brought us to courtyard and dinner.... A small town relaxed environment with big city quality food preparations.

Amazing host and server advised us not to over order as portions are generous. Salad plate (Pays) was outstanding...and turines delightful. Wines suggested/offered hit the mark.

Host went out of his way with suggestions of what to see locally and where else to eat. Even offered to drive is back to town!

This is a great restaurant, run by a very friendly couple. The service was fantastic - they provided puzzles for my two children and made sure thy had something to eat while we were waiting for our mains. The restaurant itself is family friendly and no one seemed to mind that our children were a bit noisy at times.

The food was very good - my husband thought the lamb was the best he's had in a restaurant and it really was very tender and soft. The beef also went down well and the chocolate fondant is recommended too!

The prices aren't dirt cheap but it certainly is good value for the quality of the meat in particular.

Thoroughly recommended - we ended up going back two days later!

Really nice little restaurant. Not a huge menu for what is available is delicious. Been several times and sometimes we have popped in on the off chance of a table early and although they are fully booked they let us eat as long we are not too long. Happy to go out of their way to keep the customer happy (definately something others could learn from). They do lovely tagines and chicken and seafood dishes. Reasonable price and freshly cooked food. Recommended especially if you fancy something other than the bog standard french fare!

This really is a gem of a restaurant. A lovely couple who have put a lot of heart and effort into making their restaurant a pleasure to dine. They have succeeded. Food is different from the usual perigord menus so is a welcome change. Service is excellent. We are now locals ourselves and send all our friends, family and clients to this restaurant as we can guarantee they will not be disappointed.

My wife and I had lunch here in September whilst staying in Brantôme. The restaurant was recommended to us by residents.

The menu contains tartines and tagines, offering a pleasant change from all the perigord usuals of confit, maigret etc. though these were on the menu if you wanted them.

The food was very tasty and great value.

The restaurant is run by a couple and the service is great, the waiter gets the balance just right with the language. His English is fluent, but he was more than happy to let us speak in French and help out when needed.

Will we go back, yes.
