We went one evening (caution, they are not open every evening until the season begins). We were greeted warmly by the waiter/owner who spoke very passable English (much better than my French!) The food was lovely, perhaps a little expensive but no complaints about portion size. We also ordered a carafe of house red, which was delicious. There is a... More

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food was excellent. The staff were extremely friendly, and surprisingly they spoke to us in English. The ambience was wonderful. Anyone who wants a first class meal in Brantome would be foolish not to go here first.

It's not always easy bringing two boisterous kids to eat in a slightly more upmarket restaurant but the large garden setting at this venue made it stress-free. The atmosphere was a sheer delight and we regretted not having brought our swimming stuff as could have stayed at the pool for the afternoon too. The food itself was really wonderful -... More

The owner, Yann greets and serves you and makes you immediately feel comfortable. I appreciated his honesty about the serving size so we didn't over order. We shared a very large salad of tomatoes, burrato cheese & melon that was so sweet it tasted like candy. For the main we shared the goat cheese burger. It is hard to describe... More

Lovely location and pleasant owners. Food was very expensive for the quality which was poor, apart from the creme brûlée !

We had a lovely meal here a few weeks back and were so impressed with the food, service and ambience that we took our son and his partner for lunch (we had had dinner the first time) It was his first visit to the Dordogne and we felt he would enjoy the meal. We were not wrong. We were told... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our French friends who have eaten at it a couple of times. As we are always looking for restaurants to recommend to our campers we thought we would give it a try. We went last Thursday evening - 07 July. It was a lovely warm sunny evening and we were able to eat outside... More

We staed at Domaine de Brantome and this restaurant is a hundred yards away across the lawn. The hosts are very friendly and speak English. The menu is a little limited on choices but what they do, they do very well, and the portions are generous. I would not hesitate to return.

Just got back from from the gourmande after having a fantastic meal with the other half. Yann the owner and host, was worth the bill alone. His wife is the chief and what a cook!!!!! Amazing setting in the beautiful rose garden, food and service A1, and we got to watch the French beat the Germans on a big screen... More
