Merci Nicolas for looking after us so well! This restaurant is tucked away in the back streets of the old town and is well worth seeking out. The plat Du Jour priced at 19.50 is of excellent value considering the quality of the food, surroundings and service. Our meal was superb and Nicolas was very charming and even agreed to... More

We went to l'Epicurien for the first time for my partner's birthday lunch, just the two of us. His first two choices of restaurant were shut, on holiday. I read the reviews here and it looked good. It was good, delicious food, beautifully presented. Very small downstairs dining room but it had character. Another one upstairs, but not in use,... More

A friendly welcome and service, decor was casual but smart, offered indoor (upstairs and ground) and outdoor (courtyard) tables. We were offered bread and a wonderful amuse bouche and ordered our wine by the glass, all of a very high standard. The lunch offered both a menu du jour or a la carte, but we opted for the menu of...

We chose this restaurant for dinner on our first night in Perigueux based on TA reviews. It was an excellent choice. The service was very friendly and helpful with translation. But what really stood out was the quality of the food. The "escargot" starter is superb and the main course fillet steak was absolutely cooked to perfection. Very pleasant evening........ More

The restaurant is tucked away down a small but quaint little alley, it's worth hunting for as we could not fault L'Epicurean! My girlfriend & I both opted for the 'Menu du jour' which the chef made gluten free for us, without any problem. The food was very well presented, fresh and tasty. There was only one waiter working the... More

We went early by French standards - 19:30 and were served in good time and the food was superb. As it got busier the one waiter was flying around and people were waiting a very long time to be served.

My husband and I tried this restaurant on a recommendation. We were told that it was a little more expensive but that the quality of the food justified the cost. How true - three of us ate the 'menu du jour' and had an excellent bottle of wine recommended by our waiter and the bill came to around €100. This... More

We had lunch here and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. There is a new outside terrace which we look forward to trying later in the year. There is a tiny dining room downstairs and a larger one upstairs. Service was friendly and discreet. We will be visiting again as we live nearby. If you visit Perigueux we would recommend... More
