On a pleasant evening, we arrived at Le Clos Saint Front for dinner to be warmly greeted by our host. After two weeks in delightful Perigueux, and having read the excellent reviews, we had saved this restaurant for our last night in town. We were not disappointed - it was the start of a memorable evening.
We were seated in a leafy courtyard with some interesting sculptures at a table with a small vase of fresh flowers. Our host, who was fluent in English, provided a detailed explanation of the excellent menu, whilst patiently tolerating my attempts to speak French. There was a range of interesting choices and we were impressed by the innovative inclusion of some unexpected and interesting ingredients in all three courses, including bright colours in some of the deserts.
All three courses of our meals were simply superb in all aspects - cooked to perfection, presentation, innovative use of ingredients, subtlety and balance of flavours, taste and size - and the wine recommended by the host was similarly excellent. Each dish was presented by a delightful young lady with an explanation of its contents delivered at our request in both French and English - warm, friendly, exemplary and attentive service.
We were impressed with the range and quality of the restaurants in Perigueux and Le Clos Saint Front was outstanding in all respects.
