We lunched today in an atmosphere of warmth and conviviality at Nédia and Philippe's town centre restaurant aptly named "Le Commensal" (table companion). The menu du jour was very good value and you could also eat a la carte if you wished, where there were about 3 choices each of entrée, plat and dessert/cheese. There were local Bordeaux and Bergerac as well as wines from further afield and various other bevvies. We had a lovely tender roast beef with a layered potato bake and a delicious brochette of fruits with chocolate tart and other unusual accompanying choccy delights - washed down with a Bergerac from the chateau. The food was of good quality and excellently prepared by chef Philippe with Nédia very attentively doing the front of house bit. Interesting to see that they proudly display on their menu the names of the producers supplying the products for their menu so one can eat as a "locavore" with confidence knowing that the food has not done too many road miles. The toilets were immaculate and there is also plenty of easily accessible car parking to the rear of the restaurant. There was a lone diner at one of the tables, we as a couple at another and larger groups (comforting to see many locals) at other tables with the sound of gentle chatter going on in the background. A very relaxed atmosphere inside (and a real log fire!) which is not obvious from its rather sober exterior, easily passed unnoticed on the main road into the town. This restaurant would be a welcoming place for any occasion or size of party for those wanting to eat good, authentic French food with a difference and it's even open for Sunday lunch when most other restaurants in the area are shut.
