Neighbors of mine had recommended l'Ancienne Gare to me months ago, and so I decided to drop in for lunch. Winter is such a quiet time in this area of the Dordogne that's a great to find a nice restaurant open. Although there was a daily menu option, I opted for the "Menu Gourmet" for 33 euros. An amuse bouche... More

I've visited this busy restaurant twice in the last week. Once for a large group dinner and once with a small group friends. The restaurant is located right by an old railway station. It's got a very quirky interior featuring LOTS and LOTS (!) of railway memorabilia, rather battered furniture and lots of 1980's crimson man made fabrics! The real... More

After a stroll round the morning market we went here for lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. Not been for a couple of years but the welcome is still lovely. It has a very homely atmosphere. Our lunch was superb and everything cooked to perfection. My wife reckoned it was probably one of the best lamb dishes she has ever... More

Not much to look at from the outside....but a lovely terrace that we had dinner out on. Far enough away from a quiet farm road that noise was no issue. Had a menu for (I think) 28 euros that was quite good. Good selection of local and other wines.....well priced. Good attentive staff.....overall....recommended.

Two couples visited L'Anciennce Gare for dinner while staying in the Bordeaux Region based on Tripadvisor reviews. The food , wine and service were all excellent and made even better by having dinner outside on a beautiful September evening. And reasonably priced. Definetely recommend.

We recently visited for lunch and were really impressed with all that we ate. There were five of us so we ate most items from the menu and no one was disappointed. Try the tomato and home cured salmon as it is delicious as was the fish of the day which sadly I can't remember. The wine list was reasonably... More

We've eaten here on a few occasions, always first rate. We took a friend there for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was full - you do need to book, particularly in the summer. The staff were extremely friendly, attentive and helpful - not sure if all spoke English but certainly some did although we do speak French. We had one of... More

The Ancienne Gare is one of our favourite restaurants in SW France. Sylvie and Herve are always very welcoming, the cuisine is innovative, quality is high and prices are very reasonable. We have had many Sunday lunches here and have never been disappointed.
