The food is absolutely amazing. Stunningly presented and so flavoursome. 4 of us had dinner and went for the €48 pp menu. A great choice of dishes, all cooked to perfection and the amuse bouche and cleansing sorbet was lovely. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here again when next in Brantome.

Whenever I visit my family in Périgord, we book a table at les frères Charbonnel. We enjoy every detail. The location, the service, the food, the wines and all the extras that are served. More than a restaurant we feel like have lunch or dinner at friends. I think it is very difficult to beat such quality price ratio. Over... More

We booked a night at the hotel charbonnel and as we were arriving late we enquired if we could eat in the restaurant on arrival. Thinking it would be a casual bistro type restaurant, we rocked up after our 5hr drive from Paris, pram in tow, to find that the restaurant was much more than what we expected. 3 course... More

Le Charbonnel being open we reserved two places for Christmas Eve dinner ( Réveillion ) On Christmas Eve we were certainly not disappointed ! impeccable discreet service... More

Wonderfully set, with a terrace overlooking the Dronne River, this restaurant exceeds all local expectations. Professionally serviced by knowledgeable staff, who are patient with my English friends, and help to describe the menu carefully. Wonderful amuse bouche, and pretty, tasty individual bread offerings to delight. The wine list is comprehensive, and compliments the menu. I have dined here four times... More

We ate lunch at Charbonnel on a beautiful day in September, and were impressed by the scenery and the food. It has a lovely location on the river, and we had a nice table by the water. The service was efficient and professional, but lacked warmth and friendliness (despite the fact that our table of four spent over 200 euros... More

We visited here yesterday, 28th September, for a special lunch for our Scottish friend who was leaving the following day. What a wonderful setting, wonderful service, wonderful food and we didn't feel rushed in any way shape or form!
