After traveling forever, we woke up Sunday morning with no food and huge appetites. We drove into Bergerac in search of food. EVERYTHING is closed on Sunday! It was the complete opposite of the US.

We stopped here twice for a drink in the afternoon. The first time we were given nibbles with our drinks and the staff were very friendly but the second time they seemed less attentive and just got the drinks. The setting is wonderful, overlooking the quay, but it's just a shame the road in front is so busy.

The River Side has a lovely view from the balcony and the service is OK but the food is rather disappointing. It seem to get a fair amount of French diners so maybe I just ordered the wrong menu? A big plus is that it is open on Mondays
