A recommendation from our Sister-in - Law who lives locally led us here. What a find! My dinner was absolutely divine. I could fault nothing. We were made most welcome and so was our little dog. We kicked off with a G&T (perfectly mixed which is unusual in France) and a glass of Champagne for me. We chose one €30... More

Staff explained each course when brought to table. Thoroughly recommend a... More

Really lovely place- super steak with super courgette bake - really top class. Foie gras to start was just ok have had a lot better. Desert - tarte de pommes -was good but again have had better. Lovely staff - good wine selection. It needs less light to improve the atmosphere - would go back.

I have dined at La Toupine three times now and I do like this restaurant. Everything is of very good quality, nice wine list and the service was very good. I think the lunch menu offers very good value for money. Traditional regional french cuisine that is very well done.

La Toupine is a very nice restaurant it opens at 19.30 but was willing to serve us on it's small terrace with a few drinks to start us of. The options are typical French which is a treat as you know the French take their food and not to forget their wine serious. Spread out over about 3 hours, we... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a local and did not disappoint. It is a good restaurant for either a business meal or an evening out with family and friends. It's clearly visited by locals. We arrived a little early and found the restaurant filled quickly. Reservations are recommended. The food was excellent and well served by friendly staff.... More

I went with my parents based on recommendation. First impression this restaurant has no soul. It is cold. The service was good but i cannot say the same about the food. The foie gras was ok, I've had better. My scallops were surrounded of file d'ange so much of it that the sauce was absorbed by it. No flavour at... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time when saying in Brive. Surprised to find they had no gin! The food was very good but long waits between courses. We had to go to the till to finally get the bill. Shame the service was so poor.

Firstly, the ambience was good. The restaurant had a pleasing decor and was well looked after. Secondly and more importantly the food was excellent, right through from presentation to taste.We chose from the set menu of four courses, starter, main, cheese and dessert at 33.50 euros and we could not fault any of it. We shall never forget the rhubarb... More
