From the moment we entered this restaurant, we knew that we were going to be looked after in the custom we have become use to in Bererac. The warm & friendly welcome was superb from Michelle & her partner Michel, who is the excellent chef. Each course arrived & each time it was a delight. We have eaten there several times during the week & each time we have never been disappointed. Absolutely delicious & beautifully presented & extremely reasonable. A must to anyone who is visiting the area. We can't wait to come back! Thank you both so much for a great experience. Debs.

Not a million miles from Bergerac (about 5 actually) but well worth the trip. We have eaten there several times now and have never been disappointed. Good wine selection, a menu that varies and doesn't offer the usual duck, more duck and foie gras, you can usually find a dish that is a little bit different.
Their Thai curry last summer was sublime. A nice setting for summer evening meals outside (we took friends and family there and they loved it too) and a very pleasant interior where you can dine in the "conservatory" extension overlooking the church and the wooded hills in the near distance.
Owners very welcoming (the chef is French and the host in the bar/dining area is English) We went there for lunch Tuesday 10/1/12, lovely mushroom soup, prawn, avocado and crab starter and "joue de boeuf" never had that before. Portions are generous and at a price that is pretty damn good and the quality of the food that is served. Definitely worth a visit.

We had one of the two offered plats for lunch, tongue in tomato sauce. All food was delicious, prices were right on target, house red wine was a good value. Best thing was the co-owner, an English woman who accommodated our daughter's fear of real French food by making her a simple off-the-menu lunch for virtually no charge. If you go, be sure to read the "Bathroom rules" in French on the inside door of the toilet!

The nicest couple run this restaurant serving excellent and innovative food. We had a family gathering of many nationalities and they catered for all and made it an occasion to remember. I have dined with them before and after this and the standards are always beyond compare. I couldn't recommend them more. If you are looking for a good restaurant around Bergerac I would heartily recommend this one.
