Best restaurant in Uzerche Area, de have been in July and totally forgot to leave a comment. You need to book in advance as it's quiet small. But this man is amazing, he cooks and waiters all on his own and the cooking is just...fantastic. We drove over 100 km each way to get there and as the previous time it did definitely worth it.More

Another lovely visit, this time for a birthday , which was noted on booking and they kindly asked if there was anything special we wanted to request for dessert .....which was then presented with a candle and a painstakingly piped message ( in English )...The young lady in charge of service was a delight and very good humoured . It really feels like eating in someone’s front room, so warm and friendly. Many thanks and long may they continueMore

We visited here for lunch earlier in the year and had a lovely meal, this time we had dinner. The meal was outstanding, everything was delicious and beautifully presented . It was also terrific value for cooking of this standard. We will definitely be back....The salon is also nicely decorated, plenty of room between tables...rather like eating in someone’s home. Fabulous place.More

We have just returned from the restaurant having eaten our beat meal ever - in my daughter’s words. Perfect food, perfect service and a beautiful and relaxed setting.

We lunched here on our way from the Dordogne towards Paris. This restaurant definitely deserves its Bib Gourmand. We were warmly greeted and enjoyed friendly and gracious service by Madame who handles the dining room. She put up with my poor French, and spoke slowly...and distinctly which facilitated our communication a great deal. Although the food is traditional, it is also imaginative and takes great advantage of local and seasonal foods. The wine list is nice and reasonably priced. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will return. We had a wonderful meal and felt we had received "value for money".More

There are some restaurants that serve meals whi ch one day are great but another time can be found wanting. We have only eaten here a few times so don't think we are experts but on each occasion the meal has been excellent. What more...can you ask for? Please try this place - they deserve it.More

This restaurant, which is directly opposite the church in Montgibaud gets its name (a rough translation meaning the Linden/Lime tree of Sully) from Sully, the Minister, Advisor and Confidante of Henri IV who decided to plant lime trees in the villages of France before the...door of the church or on the main square; although the actual provenance of the tree on these particular premises can’t be assured! We had been told that this husband and wife run Michelin Guide 2017 restaurant is reservation only, you can’t just wander in off the street and having spent a cosy evening there being introduced to it by friends recently one can readily understand why. Ok, so any restaurant that opens in the evening in this locality scores extra marks from me but to find it offers some 8 or 9 desserts as well only serves to ratchet up their score. You enter into what can effectively be someone’s open plan lounge-dining room, a large open fire to one side gives you an immediate hug and makes you feel cosy and once seated when you look at the varied menu you know that the cuisine will be a class apart and totally different to the commonplace Menu du Jour as it has so many French delicacies (?) on offer. A difference here to other restaurants is that you have to order dessert at the outset. Thus at the start of the evening it is thus not possible to base one’s choice on whether you have enough room for one or on what one see’s being delivered to other tables but with so many delights on offer it is easy to find something you think will be suitable! Our drinks orders taken we were each treated to an amuse buche arrangement of a small china spoon of soup, some chartcuterie & small piece of garlic bread. Further to which our party of seven had a range of starters, the veloute of pumpkin was a delight and with a lovely and to me, unexpected, taste, and I have to say that neither the Tete de veau or Pied de cochon looked as you might expect. I guess they tasted ok too as our friends devoured them completely. Strangely for such a number in a party we all chose the same main, Merlu; wonderfully presented and a generous size portion too. Perhaps our collective choice was an indictment that one does not always see fish other than perhaps Trout on a French menu. Next up as is the way in this part of the world was the cheese course. Here one had a choice of either some hot cheese or a choice of 3 or 4 pieces from probably the most extensive cheese board I have ever seen in a restaurant with some dozen or more varieties on offer, beautifully arranged on a huge board that the waitress/wife could barely carry. At the end of the evening we had either all saved enough room or chose to cram in dessert which in my case was a tasty Flognarde de prunes, although the St Honore, and chocolate mousse deserve honourable mentions. The presentation of the food throughout was a joy and if one had to make a criticism it was that service was a bit on the slow side but then one suspects that all the dishes are prepared to order and that means they can’t be rushed. I was impressed by the choice of restaurant and thought it certainly worth a repeat visit for the next special occasion that arises.More

This cosy little Restaurant lies in a tiny and picturesque French village. From my limited repertoire of the local language i learned the chef du patron worked under a 3 star Chef previously. His Wife serves the tables and she is so sweet but also...professional. The food is spectacular with layer on layer of flavour. From the Amuse Bouche, starter, main to the cheese and pudding courses I was in foodie heaven. Comparing it to a 2 star lunch I had in Paris last year I'd say 4 times better and 4 times cheaper. Outstanding in every way!More

My wife and I booked for lunch as the restaurant was mid way between our morning plans and an afternoon appointment. You really have to know where it is, even though it's signposted it's still not obvious! We were warmly greeted, and although there was...only one other couple who came in after us it never felt cold or unwelcoming. We had the 29 euro menu, delightful amuse bouche, asparagus salad for my wife, "fish and chips" for me. Mains of guinea fowl, cheese on toast and excellent desserts. The food was very well presented and all delicious. With a half bottle of rose and coffee 76 euros. We would certainly go back again, and will recommend to our friends.More
