Prix Fixe is unbeatable for value, quality and quantity. I had eouf cocotte and magret de canard followed by cheese plate, my cousins had the mouelleux... More

You can't get a more authentic French lunch restaurant in Bergerac than this place. The restaurant was full of the locals having their lunch. Friendly host and really great food for this genre of restaurant. We had the beef and fish mains, really nice dishes. We will certainly be back here for lunch soon!

We found this by accident when looking around Bergerac one lunchtime. The tables were full (always a good sign) but luckily someone was leaving just as we arrived. The menu was short and obviously made from fresh ingredients, presumably from the next door market, and with a local flavour. The tables are close together, and you can choose to go... More

When we visit a town, we do not know we check TripAdvisor for a nice place to eat. Lunchtime was upon us in Bergerac, so we wanted to see "La Cocotte". We had a little bit of trouble finding the place, but when we found it at one of the corners of the food market, there were some tables free... More

In the small covered modern market in the ancient section of Bergerac is a gem of a small restaurant. Honest good food, cleverly prepared and delivered in a setting where you can either sit outside and watch the world go by, or enjoy the hall of the market as vendors close up for their own lunchtime break. Most important is... More

Small modern attachment to the covered market where a young couple, he cooks, she fronts, use produce from the market to produce simple but very effective seasonal lunches. Fresh produce very well cooked, extremely good value and some good local wines available in glass, carafe or bottle make for a very pleasant place to have lunch. No real need to... More

Saturday market day in Bergerac and we turned to Tripadviser for a lunch recommendation and picked this husband and wife operation - he cooks, she's front of house - and it was perfect. They advertise on the menu chalkboard that everything they use is sourced from the market and it was certainly fresh and tasty while there was a good... More

We were wondering around at lunch time and decided to try this little restaurant. We had snails in a delicious garlic cream, topped with the lightest pastry. The duck confit was tender and tasty with a light cider sauce. The strawberry tart for dessert was so indulgent and also delicious. We enjoyed a carafe of local rose. Recommended!

This is a fabulous little place for a delicious lunch. Tucked away in the corner of the market. Charming French couple, wife serving and husband cooking. All produce is incredibly fresh and sourced from the market. Menu simple. 2 courses €15 and optional 3 courses. 3 choices of starter, main and desert. (All explained if needed.) Small place but not... More
