L'Esplanade is the top restaurant in Domme, with local specialties prepared by excellent chefs. An impressive restaurant for an informal lunch, or a more formal dinner.

This restaurant is perfectly located to enjoy the stunning views from the hill-top village of Domme. We had a delightful meal as my husband and I watched the sun set. Truly beautiful.

Dear Sir, I have to let you know that you add a comment at the wrong restaurant, as we do not propose Andouillette and Confit de Canard at our Restaurant. Kind Regard,

We ate two meals here, a dinner and a lunch. Each time the service was warm and attentive and we had a terrific table: the view is outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the Grand Marnier souffle with orange granite for dessert.

Situated at the summit of the medieval town of Domme, on the Esplanade, which dominates the Dordogne valley. From the restaurant, which is shaded in harmonious yellow and blue to the rooms with antique furniture, you can experience and enjoy the Dordogne thanks to cuisine based on the flavours of the south-west intensified by inventive notes.
