We visited and had a great meal and really helpful advice on local wines. Would recommend a visit. Had a wonderful starter of asparagus and food was beautifully cooked

Even though this restaurant has it all (location, nice ambience and a skilled chef), nobody takes any trouble to satisfy a customer.
All other restaurants were packed in Bergerac so we were surprised to find this restaurant almost empty.
We soon found out why.

The door jams so you can't get in without help, and the on looking staff does nothing to help you with the door.

The waitress is so untrained, its almost adorable.

The starter of warm sushi was interesting and some care had been put into it. The steaks however were as standard as they come, bland, with frites and a bit of chopped lettuce on the side.
They forgot to bring the sauce so when it finally came we had already finished most of the meat.

Nothing was done to make this a special dish, even though the chef clearly had the skills and time on his hands with an empty restaurant.

Desert consisted of prefabricated chocolate cake. I could have found the same I in any supermarket.

In addition the music was awful and not fitting for the ambiance.

A waste of time and money.

Apart from a 40 mins wait for the menu when the food eventually arrived it was ok. I had a steak which was a bit tough but I didn’t want to wait for something else. Others on the table had a good meal I think I just made the wrong choice and they were very busy with a large party upstairs. Reasonable price in a very authentic setting.

We visited here for an evening meal. This is a lovely small restaurant with a quiet ambience. The chef was very friendly and came out to help us with the menu which did not have an English translation. The soup starter from the set menu of the day was a delicious beef broth with vegetables. We chose a main of ham knuckle which was slow cooked in beer and was served with sweet potatoes. The pudding was a delicious pumpkin cake served with walnut ice cream. Good wine selection. We had a tasty meal and would revisit.

Stopped for starter with drinks, but left having consumed too much great food and wine. The proud, extraordinary presentation by the cook of the local cheeses matched the taste. What a privilege!
