This delightful restaurant is tucked away in a narrow street in the centre of Perigueux. It is a treat not be missed. In a city with many fine restaurants catering to every level of taste, cooking, and expense, this is one of the very best. Booking may not be essential, depending on the time of your visit, but I wouldn't take the risk of finding no free table. The welcome from Madame is very warm, and the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive, The restaurant is listed in Michelin, which should surprise nobody. The ingredients are freshly bought from the market, and every element of the menu is beautifully chosen, cooked, and presented. A very good wine list merits serious study, and the whole experience comes at a price which is very reasonable. I cannot wait to make another visit.

I visited with my family including a 9 month old baby and we all had a great day. At lunch the €32 menu du jour was incredible value for some of the best food I've ever tasted. Wee surprise palate cleaning courses were very welcome and the service for topping up water and bread impeccable. A must visit if you're in the region and after excellent but good value french cuisine.

Terrific food and family-run atmosphere with very professional service - believe it's Michelin starred spot (or should be!).

Lunch with a mi cuit salmon in saffron sauce with tiny mussels. Top quality cooking and ingredients, and Madame, the proprietor is delightful.

We had a very good lunch here during a short visit to Perigueux. Good flavours, carefully prepared, delicious dessert and very nice wine; service was friendly and efficient. It's in a little side street with no garden, so not a particularly pretty area, but as it was raining that didn't bother us. Atmosphere homely, calm and relaxing rather than buzzy. Not cheap, but excellent quality. Would defnitely recommend.
