“Pub/cafe that serves food, not really a restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

We chose to eat here as there was obvioulsy locals there, which I always see as a sign that it is not somewhere just attracting tourists. The owners spoke virtually no English, but did a great job at getting over their point to us.
We all eat pizza (two adults and two teenagers) We went back 3 times, tried various pizza, all which were really nice, freshly prepared with fresh ingredients.
Everyone was really friendly, including the other customers which made each visit really enjoyable, everything from a local acting out how he was a submariner to someone selling locally picked mushrooms.
One night I left my handbag, on returning about an hour later it was safely being looked after behind the bar - made us want to go back. Lovely relaxed atmosphere.

“Well priced & good quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013 via mobile

We ate here last night and could not fault it. We shared a large 'charcuterie' starter which was full of fresh meats & pâté. I had a pizza (could be considered not very exciting) but it wa freshly prepared and very good. My husband had duck with frites, again plentiful and outstanding quality. The whole experience was wonderful and the staff friendly. We sat outside amongst local people and felt very welcome. If in Le Bugue give it a try!!

“Just what you need sometimes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is just what you need sometimes: a small, friendly restaurant which is open all year and is patronised by local people as much as by tourists. The owners are invariably welcoming and genuinely anxious that you enjoy your meal. The food is fresh simple, well-prepared and reliable. Local specialities like confit de canard are straightforward and honest. Pizzas are made on the spot and are excellent: light, thin, crisp crust and tasty toppings. Salads are generous and attractive. It also has a good range of food suitable for vegetarians (the vegetarian pizza is wonderful!). The plat du jour/menu du jour is outstandingly good value.

This is a place we have come to many times over the last eight years, in all seasons, and we always enjoy going back.

Two things worth knowing. First, there is plenty of free parking nearby in the Rue de Paris or opposite in the village car park in Le Bugue. And second, you can ring in advance and order food to takeaway---can be a godsend when you want, say, a pizza and a big salad at home but are too tired to cook!
