I had the 43 euro menu, but they start at 29 euros.Starter was lobster ravioli with an excellent beurre blanc sauce, but the ravioli could have contained a little more lobster. Next came a perfectly cooked filet de boeuf with pan-fried foie gras and an intense sauce flavoured with the local Byrrh aperitif. I chose the "therapie au chocolat" as... More

We have been dining out in the region for some 12 years now and have been happy with many reasonable restaurants and friendly welcomes (for example at Can Marty just around the corner). we had dined here before but under previous ownership. In terms of "fine dining" this is the best value we have enjoyed. It made a great change... More

we have visiting Patio Catalan for about 8 years and have never been disappointed. This time had the 29€ meal. Great value for three tasty well presented course. In simple terms smoked salmon, Lot, and Charlotte. Service was quiet, efficient and friendly. You know all the food is prepared on the premises. We'll be back.

Lovely place, has a (perhaps too-) wide menu, not surprising knowing the chef is from the Perigord & has settled in P.O. Good "gourmet menus" featuring different French cuisine styles & all very well done. Friendly, helpful front-of-house keep things ticking along nicely. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area

Great food, good service. Definitely recommend. No vegetarian option. Although most places in France don't seem to understand vegetarian.

Definitely the best in town. Hi end cooking and quality service and attention. Probably now our favourite in the area. Not the cheapest but choose the "regional assiette" for a substantial meal and very good value. Other menus are pricey for the area but 1st class and worth every cent. We have never had to book but I guess this... More

It is a year or so since we were last here and the service and food were good then and did not let us down this time. Well worth the visit. Unprepossessing from the outside but inside great.

Dinner for three this evening. The food was absolutely delicious, far better than in other more expensive restaurants in the region. Fresh hot quail salad, filet of beef, deconstructed lemon meringue tart. I'm a french trained chef and I couldn't fault any of it. Nice interior patio with a Virginia creeper clad wall. Lovely table runners made of Catalan striped... More
