Le Pha was a recommendation from the owners of our gite and it did not disappoint. It was our last night in Le Bugue and we just didn't feel like another BBQ. Great mix of Asian and French dishes, something for everyone regardless of age, all reasonably priced and served by really friendly staff. The terrace overlooks the river and provided a perfect back drop to our last evening meal in the Dordogne. OK it looks a little tired from the outside but don't be put off by that, the food was really good. Would definitely recommend that you give it a try either for lunch or in the evening when in Le Bugue..

This was our third visit to this restaurant and as always it was very pleasant, we sat on the lower terrace right next to the water, it was a hot muggy evening but there was some cool air coming off the river, very relaxing.
This time we opted for the set menu, the starter was great and we opted for the chicken curry which was also very good. Just the right amount of food, great tasting and really very affordable.
This restaurant offers a pleasant dining experience, the food is Vietnamese rather than Chinese, a great change to the average local cuisine. Recommend!

This really was a bit of a surprise treat. We visited the Tuesday market at Le Bugue and parked near this restaurant which looked a bit scruffy from outside?! However on our canoe trip down the river we noticed that it had an attractive terraced area overlooking the river so decided to pop in there for lunch on our last day. (we mistakenly thought that it was a greek restaurant, the writing/ name probably) but it is 'Asiatic' so you can have french or choose from an asiatic menu!
We opted for the menu du jour Asiatic and it was a lovely surprise. Nems ( delicious spring rolls and samosas to start) and then we had one each of the chicken curry and the beef chow mien, which were both very good, the curry being much like Thai yellow curry & the chow mien being beef mixed veg (no noodles in sight) but both came with plain rice. The portions were generous and delicious and the service was excellent: We finished with lychees all included in €15 per person. with a beer it came to 33€ . They put cold water on the table. Overall a very nice meal and lovely atmosphere next to the river

We came here because tripadvisor said it was still open at 13:45 (until 15:00 actually).The plate outside said 14:30 so that was already confusing, but the waiter started laughing when we came in in an 'ofcourse not' fashion. Worthless.

vous avez certainement parlé avec le jeune serveur saisonnier et je suis navrée qu'il n'ait pu répondre à votre attente , la fois prochaine demandez s'il vous plait , la responsable qui est présente toute l'année et ce depuis 20ans , je pense que ce melentendu aurait vite été oublié , une note de 1 étoile signifie horrible , et je pense que celà n'est ni mérité ni justifié ,
j'avais mis les horaires sur ce site il y a plusieurs années et j'ai oublié c'est vrai de rectifier,
voilà , bon séjour en Dordogne ,
