The food is decent, but it is not deserving of the 4-5 stars given to it by lots of reviewers. By all means come, but don't expect too much.

We arrived in Les Eyzies mid evening, late season and found a good meal and good wine. we tried a kir chataigne as apero and found it a little tasteless at it was made with the 'spirit' and not the ordinary fortified wine as is normal in kirs. although there is only 2% or so different in alcohol the spirit...

Really good food, and I would have loved to have visited again were it not for an extremely unpleasant waitress who 'welcomed' us on our visit there. I use the term 'Welcomed' very loosely - she was so rude that we almost left there and then. It is such a pity to have the evening ruined by a waitress when... More

I went there with my father and son. We had a table on the balcony with view on the museum. The atmosphere is nice and cosy. The service was great the waitress came quickly gave good advice on the wine pairing with the food. But most of all food was delicious one of the best "Trio of Foie Gras" I... More

Lovely restaurant tucked right across from the amazing Museum of Prehistory in Les Eyzies in the Dordogne or Perigord area in southern France. Food was fresh, excellently prepared, and delicious. Visited July 2016

I really liked this restaurant- the steak with foie gras and truffle sauce was excellent. Well, I think that's what it was because my French is limited and the waitress didn't speak any English (which is fair enough- it is in France), but was helpful nonetheless. Even though there is plenty of choice in Les Eyzies we figured it was... More

Visited with friends and family and delighted that they were able to fit us in a shady spot outside - until the sun moved around...see later note. Food was good...not excellent but very good...particularly enjoyed carpaccio starter...wine was also very good as you would expect. Service was nothing short of awful. Had to ask 3 times for water and still... More

This cozy restaurant in the very touristic village of Les Eyzies proposes excellent local dishes (foie gras, duck) and an amiable service for around 20 euros per menu. The only deception was the desert. Announced as strawberry tiramisu, it was just a cup of whipping cream with strawberry slices. And a little hint to avoid tourist traps: buy local products... More

They won't ask you if anything needed. Ignorant service if it is possible to call it service. Food was OK. All in all I think overrated place with awful service. Maybe local people getting better service. It was worst experience in our 10 days in village and we tried 5 different places.
