We are regular visitors to the Perigord region of France, enjoy the distinctive cuisine and eat out regularly when we visit.

We had passed through the pretty hilltop village of Audrix several times before but hadn't tried the food at the Auberge until this trip (July 2014). The food was very good, the service professional, and we found the 24 euro menu (soup, starter, main and cheese) excellent value for money. It doesn't claim to be fine dining (and for these prices one shouldn't expect it to be); this is a traditional hotel and restaurant serving good, honest food at affordable prices, and it does this extremely well indeed. We know people who live in the area (both UK expats and French locals) who agree and strongly recommend the food at the auberge. I don't really understand what a couple of previous reviewers said about unfriendly service, but I suppose this is pretty subjective and comes down to individual experience on the day. We found the service was fast and, importantly, informative - the waiting staff know their food well (the lad who served us did a great job of explaining the different cheeses on the cheeseboard). It didn't have that kind of obsequious and frankly fake 'touchy-feelyness' you get in some places, but which I guess some people must like.

After the amuse bouche of black pudding, there was a tasty garlic soup, I had a starter of salad of duck gizzard. This a favourite of mine and a regional speciality, and this was by FAR the best I have had (I would go back just for this dish alone). For my main I had lamb shoulder (good, but nothing special I suppose), followed by cheese (and a proper cheeseboard at that, where you can select the cheeses you want, something lacking in most restaurants now). With wine (50cl carafe), an aperitif and coffees, the final bill came to 64 euros, which is bloody good value.

This restaurant is must if you are in the area.

We cycled up to Audrix looking for somewhere for lunch and decided to give the Auberge Medievale a try - and we were very glad that we did. It wasn't overly full, but apart from us everybody else was french. Always a good sign we reckon. We went for the lunch time menu at 14€ for three courses (four if you include the bowl of soup first!). It wasn't haute cuisine, and it was mainly duck-based - but when in the Dordogne that's what you expect. We had duck terrine with fois gras, confit duck wings and dessert of an enormous bowl of sugared strawberries. Perfect. And very good value for money.
Staff were attentive but discrete, and didn't seem to mind us trampling in in all our cycling gear.
No idea what the hotel is like I'm afraid, but would definitely visit the restaurant again.

I highly agree with the review made by 'speckledjim73' on this restaurant earlier on.
We had very similar experiences. Staff is not unfriendly but do not seem to care that much. Food is below average and the wine was quite poor (house wine).
Avoid this place! Not the worst experience we had in the Dordogne but definitely below average.

If you are in the neighourhood I would recommend Auberge de Salvétat (in Cadouin, more expensive but way better food), Auberge de Vielle Cure (in Saint-Chamassy, maybe a bit too expensive but overall very good experience and great terrace), Le Centenaire (Les Eyzies, with a distance the best restaurant in the region, gastronomical experience). Less upscale but good for a 'no fuss' lunch: Le Bistro D'en Face in Trémolat, le Pauly in Cénac and Hotel du Chateau in Campagne. Hope this helps.

This is a review of the Restaurant only! In late August my Brother took us (Family) for a celebratory meal in honour of his Wife's Birthday. We had a lovely meal and the service was very good. The ambience was nice, with low music in the background (medieval I think!!) Would like to think I would be going back again but, if not, I shall remember the evening with happiness.

A nice auberge in a quiet and lovely village.
Our room was spacious and comfortable, the food outstanding, and the staff friendly and professional.
This is an excellent base from which to explore the region.
Higly recommended.

Lovely location etc but food and service is mediocre at best.
Visited many years ago and was hoping for an improvement on the shoddy food but sad to report it didn't happen.
Understandably the terrace is full of tourists (British) but no excuse for the tardy service or distinctly average food.
We sat in complete darkness at one end of the terrace. Garlic soup was tasteless - unforgivable for such a regional speciality. Magret of duck arrived with school meal standard mash and various bits of gristle/bone... For dessert Sorbet contained lemon rind... Inedible and not to my taste I'm afraid.
Overall unacceptable for a €30 menu when there is far superior competition locally.
Took over 3 hours to serve up 4 pretty poor courses. Never again.

***WOULD GIVE 0 STARS IF I COULD***

This hotel was booked as we were visiting family near by and were excited to have found somewhere so near for a good price as we were staying for 4 nights, However it quickly went downhill when we got to outside the room, the smell of sewerage hit you like a tonne of bricks but I tried to brush it off as our room was right next to a toilet, and hoped that it was just the toilet that smelt, however once the room door was opened it was clear the room smelt too. We opened all doors to try and vent the room and off we went for the day to see our family, when we came back to the room we were greeted again with the smell. This smell continued to linger for our total stay!

Our second morning we went down to grab some breakfast (which we were advised was included) and was advised we were too late, complete fair as it was 9:20 and breakfast finished at 9:30. So Karine allowed us to have a coffee and an orange juice. (This is relevant for later. So we put our order in for the following morning to eat at 8am. The following morning comes around and we head down to breakfast early at about 7:45am to be told through the door by karine we were too early. So we checked our slip which said breakfast was served between 7:30 and 9:30am, again really disappoint and felt karine could have been less rude.

It gets to Sunday night and I arrive back at the hotel to pack as we were leaving on the Monday, karine knocks on the door to ask for payment, I advised this ain’t a problem however she would have to wait as my partner had the card.

My partner gets back later than planned therefore karine knocks on our door at 11:30pm to ask for payment !

The bill comes to a really odd amount so we check what we are being charged for and we were charged for the orange juice and coffee ! Which should have been included.

Our overall stay was terrible and the general cleanliness was appalling. The extractor fan doesn’t look like it’s been cleaned since it was installed. The shower head it’s just disgusting and mysterious marks around the shower. Along with the black mould growing in the room.

Would NOT recommend staying here as karine was rude from the start, she didn’t want to entertain us when we asked about the smell in the room and everytime we tried to speak with her she said she didn’t speak English, yet when asking for payment she spoke it quiet clear.

We stayed 4 nights and loved it. We actually had a couple of problems with the rooms we first had. Nothing serious, just annoying. But Karine did not rest until we were happy.

That sorted we had an excellent dinner the first evening on the terrace. It was so good we ate dinner there every night we stayed. And were never disappointed. Good selection of wines, not too expensive, and representative of local producers.

The hotels location close to many caves, lots of beautiful villages, and many scenic drives was ideal for us. These is also a nice old church right near the hotel if you want a bit of quiet time for meditation.

And all excellent value for money. We cannot wait to revisit. Shame it's so far from New Zealand!!

Wonderful host and service in a very special place. Excellent dinners. A special out of the way place with beautiful terrace and relaxing ambience. We stayed three nights and wish it was six, its a well located base to visit the Perigord.
