A friendly welcome and service, decor was casual but smart, offered indoor (upstairs and ground) and outdoor (courtyard) tables. We were offered bread and a wonderful amuse bouche and ordered our wine by the glass, all of a very high standard. The lunch offered both a menu du jour or a la carte, but we opted for the menu of...

We chose this restaurant for dinner on our first night in Perigueux based on TA reviews. It was an excellent choice. The service was very friendly and helpful with translation. But what really stood out was the quality of the food. The "escargot" starter is superb and the main course fillet steak was absolutely cooked to perfection. Very pleasant evening........ More

The restaurant is tucked away down a small but quaint little alley, it's worth hunting for as we could not fault L'Epicurean! My girlfriend & I both opted for the 'Menu du jour' which the chef made gluten free for us, without any problem. The food was very well presented, fresh and tasty. There was only one waiter working the... More

We went early by French standards - 19:30 and were served in good time and the food was superb. As it got busier the one waiter was flying around and people were waiting a very long time to be served.

My husband and I tried this restaurant on a recommendation. We were told that it was a little more expensive but that the quality of the food justified the cost. How true - three of us ate the 'menu du jour' and had an excellent bottle of wine recommended by our waiter and the bill came to around €100. This... More

We had lunch here and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. There is a new outside terrace which we look forward to trying later in the year. There is a tiny dining room downstairs and a larger one upstairs. Service was friendly and discreet. We will be visiting again as we live nearby. If you visit Perigueux we would recommend... More

My husband and I ate here twice when we visited Périgueux last October. The food was delicious and the service excellent. There were wonderful menu selections and everything seemed very fresh and well prepared. We hope to return the next time we are in Périgueux.

We enjoyed our meals very much. We had the 34€ lunch menu. The mise en bouche was outstanding. The mains let it down. The lamb and veal did not quite go together and the vegetables, especially the cabbage with smoked bacon overpowered the fish. Everything else was excellent.
