You need to book - especially in December. Friendly welcome but we were put upstairs and left for about ten minutes. There are only menus - and we only wanted a single plate - and were a touch surprised to find that we had been charged for two complete menus. C'est la vie. The food is good and nicely served....

2 nice ladies looking after you, ensuring you to get a wunderful lunch for a very reasonable price! We entered the restaurant with the seven of us. We choosed the daily menu: steak frites with a panacotta as desert. Including 2 bottles of water and two nice bottles of Rosé [Cotes de Provence] and coffees afterwards, we spent only 182... More

Lucked upon this place having parked in one of the very smart underground car parks in Brive - I'm a sucker for the look of a restaurant, and this place drew me in. A large patio with lots of shade in front of a large old building housing at least 2 floors of more tables. Despite being on the late... More

Best dish was the guizziere and magret with salad, foie gras was ok with apricot but nothing special. Steak was requested well cooked but was not enjoyable. Fish with chorizo was overcooked. Pudding order was incorrect. Red wine was replaced as bottle was icy cold and we prefer room temp. Need another waiter as not enough for numbers

A group of us travelled from UK & Ireland via Toulouse and Paris to Brive. And after a long days travel arriving very late indeed, we weary travellers were treated to some excellent food and great hospitality. If i'm in Brive again, will definitely go back to explore the menu further..

Oh..what a meal and great price. The food was excellent ,simple but well executed. The service was impeccable, they welcome you by your name, I made a reservation! The wine list is full of local discoveries. Quiet environment . Dining by myself was one of the best experience I have had.

there was only one waitress on duty and the restaurant was full. After trying to flag down the waitress several times, we gave up. I finally caught her eye and reminded her that she had forgotten to bring us our wine, by which time we had already finished our meal. The meal was delicious but would have been better with... More

We sat on the terrace on a lovely day at lunchtime, the food and service was excellent, if a little slow waiting for the main course. Well worth a visit but do book, we had called in on a previous visit but they were complet!

The restaurant has a nice terrace and friendly staff who - although we arrived while they were still setting up - made us feel welcome and fed us gin and tonic until they were ready to take our orders :-) The food here is good, but perhaps a little over-sauced. For example, an exemplary plate of smoked salmon was slightly... More
