My husband and I dined at Le Clos Saint Front twice during our recent trip to Périgueux. We have dined there every time we have visited this city because it is a most wonderful culinary experience. To me, reading the menu is much like visiting a beautiful art exhibit or as my friend said, much like reading a book of lovely poetry! Patrick, the proprietor, creates dishes that are delightfully unusual, truly delicious and a visual treat. He so enjoys welcoming guests to his restaurant while providing a memorable dining experience for each of them. We have always been amazed at every meal that we have been so fortunate to consume there. This time we ate a wonderful fish called Saint-Pierre which was perfectly prepared and expertly served. Our entrées and desserts were also unusual and truly delicious. It is very difficult to choose each course because they all sound so appetizing and interesting. The menu changes throughout the year about every six weeks and the wine offerings are perfect for any palate. The atmosphere provides a quiet comfort whether we sit outside or in one of the indoor areas. As I am writing this, I am relieving the meals we have enjoyed there and comfort myself by hoping that we will be able to return as soon as possible. Thank you for your special culinary and hosting talents, Patrick, and to your lovely wife Françoise who also has made our dining experiences very happy times. We are looking forward to our next visit to Le Clos Saint Front!

I've been lucky enough to eat here on several occasions. Each time, whether it be indoors, or in the lovely garden outside, the experience is extra-ordinary. Patrick, the owner of the restaurant is not only a passionate foodie who manages to produce the most original, subtle and sophisticated combinations of taste, but also a showman. He leaves you with the desire to come back and see what "merveille" he is going to come up with next....

We dined here on our first night in Perigueux and it was an excellent choice. The food offering was adventurous, perhaps too much so at times, but it was all very well cooked and beautifully presented. The owner was a most enthusiastic and helpful host and his colleagues were knowledgable and attentive. We dined outside under a canopy on a warm September evening in a very relaxed environment. We were very satisfied with all aspects of our experience.

Both the setting and the service were wonderful. There is a delightful courtyard for al fresco meals, and indoors the rooms are warm and welcoming with beautiful sculptures decorating some of the tables. Patrick and his team made us exceptionally welcome in a relaxed, friendly but ultimately very professional way. Nothing was too much trouble. As for the food - one word. Delicious. As were the selection of wines. The chef serves classic dishes with some wonderfully innovative twists. The "trio" of foie gras starter was outstanding (ice cream foie gras!) and the beef a real experience. We also judge restaurants by the atmosphere and reactions of other guests. Everybody seemed happy and appreciative of the whole experience.
We would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you so much for a memorable evening.

Had a wonderful lunch al fresco in the walled garden with great attention to detail on table decor and interesting sculptures to set a great ambience for the superb food (& wine) that followed. A really special place and suffice to say we will absolutely be heading back !

Top marks in food and service.
