Had lunch with my family here; the service was great and the food was ok but not great. I had the cod; it was good but nothing special. My husband had lamb with beans ; again nothing exceptional but it was decent. The staff was friendly and professional; I'm not sure we would go back though because of the endless... More

OK. So it was a Monday evening in a French provincial town, when most other restaurants were closed. So la Truffe Noire was pretty much our only option, although we'd planned to eat at a more reasonably priced establishment. In its heyday, it was considered one of the best around, so we expected a decent gastronomic experience. Malheur! The food... More

Business dinner in this place, not many people in, the menu is the first strange thing, all set menus, quite expensive, not much choice. The food was very average with a very strange presentation, looked as if it was served on un-washed plates. The service was only average, they kept mixing up the dishes. Wine list was also expensive. Meal... More

I don't think much changed since our last visit here. Food in presentation and taste still exceptional and service outstanding. Wine list very complete. I have to insist, if in the area, don't miss this!

As many restaurants were closed, our hotel hosts advised us a half hour drive to Brive for a diner in Truffe Noir. We had a very good diner here, pricing a la carte is on the high side but the ambiance and spacious dining room makes that bearable. The hotel is old but decent and nearby the city center. The...

I had a terrific lunch in the shade on this very hot day. The hostess and waiter were wonderful to this single lady who butchered their language badly. I had the fixed price menu of a main and dessert. I had duck and it was divine. The apple tart was wonderful as well. A very pretty place to dine with... More

My favorite dinner is to have "apero" on the terrace then step inside for a large salad with huge slices of foie gras. The price is right and the waitstaff is friendly.

This is probably not as good as its Brussels namesake (why is there a review of that restaurant in among reviews of this Brive one?) but the food is certainly delicious and well presented. There were three of us having a business lunch here on a cold, grey Friday at the end of January. The place was half-full, The large... More

Although staff did not speak much English they were very helpful and we were understood. The maitre'd in the restaurant spoke fluent English. The room included a small fridge which was great for some ham and cheese we picked up at market - and some cold water to refresh after our walks. The location of the hotel on the ring... More
