“View not worth the meal”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2010

From the surly waitress to the plat du jour of tasteless potage and cold beouf, that was ordered to be cunard in mushroom sauce, to the overcooked cunard that was received as ordered, the meal was barely edible. We actually didn't stay for the included frommage because we just couldn't indure the pained expression of the waitress any longer. We weren't surprized that she nor the manager sitting in full view of our table didn't question that we'd left over half of our meal uneaten. The experience did have a few highlights though. One was the gentleman waiter, unfortunately he wasn't ours, with a sense of humour. The second was the potatoes served with the entree. They were thinly sliced russet, fried probably in duck fat, with wonderful spices. Although DH complained that his were cold, they were very flavorful and almost made up for the cunard I didn't receive and the cold beouf I didn't eat after the first few bites when I determined it was beouf. The third was the Carmelized Gateaux with pommes, noix and a lovely cream sauce and the final treat was the rouge vin ordinaire which was full bodied, fruity and very smooth. Based on the number of tables, this restaurant can accommodate a hundred or more guests at one time and has perfect views of Chateau Baynac. I'm dissappointed more for what the place could be than what I experienced but understand that sometimes these places rely totally on tourists knowing they'll not have repeats and can make a living serving what they want, how they want it, by whom they want.

“Fantastic French Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2008

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the Gite in which we stayed, and we were told it is very popular among the locals - we didn't feel at all like we were in a tourist trap. We found it on the route from Sarlat, as we followed the signs to the Beynac castle, within one km of Beynac one passes under a very small train bridge and it is right there on your left. It is a very large free standing restaurant with a large parking lot, sitting much by itself. Truely a jewel of the Dordogne and it looks straight on to the castle of Beynac.

The menu was printed in French and in English although the staff knew very little English. Very typical French cuisine. They offered set menus ranging from 13 Euros up to over 25 Euros, and an extensive a la carte menu. The 13 Euro menu I chose for lunch included very large portion sizes.....a soup, salad, main course and dessert. The garlic and herb potatoes were the best we have ever had. They also had a very good kids menu for around 7 Euros.

The dining room was very large and open. It was great for a lunch place, on the more casual end for dinner.
