This really is the only restaurant in Saussignac - which is quite well known for its sweet wines We visited for the first time on Easter Monday and had the fixed price menu - lamb We liked the food but for us the lamb was a little overcooked. The starter and dessert were both very good. The wines were ALL... More

Good choice on menu with plenty of fish dishes. All in French but the owner was able to explain each coarse to us ignorant English. Not a problem and she made us... More

We went for their Plat du Jour - 13.50 euros for three courses and a glass of wine or a coffee. We sat on the terrace but there is also a room inside. A very friendly welcome (English spoken, but we tried some French). Food was wonderful, particularly the main of chicken in a delightfully light mushroom sauce with chips... More

Average food which was greatly overpriced. Great location and the hosts were very welcoming.... We were the only guests there which is never a good sign.

This restaurant is a real find situated as it is in the sleepy village of Saussignac. We were warmly greeted by the owners wife, and directed to our reserved table on the terrace, an ideal spot for those long warm summer evenings. The table was well laid but not fussy, and the menu was presented on a large chalk board.... More

I come here a couple of times a year and I love this place. The menu doesn't change much but all the dishes are excellent. The snail soup is wonderful and the fish is usually perfect. The desserts are simple but great. Go for the profiteroles. Run by a husband and wife from the Alsace - so can be hard... More

We have visited before and always enjoyed the cuisine. The evening was quiet as there was a fete in the next village. Our food was to the usual high standard with lovely table service from the owner. Couldn't fault the food or the suggested wines.
