Beautiful setting, seating outside and inside. Immaculately clean, fantastic unobtrusive service. Friendly, no rush, everything good. Enjoy again and again. No distance from the car park though everywhere is close in Brantome!

What better way to pass a hot Sunday afternoon. A table by the river with canoeists for entertainment.

I visit this restaurant several times a year while on holiday in the Dordorgne. In the past I've had good food and nice ambiance but this year was truly shocked by the appalling service. We were placed at a table on the thoroughfare and my water and wine kept spilling over onto the table as people walked past. When I... More

Friendly efficient staff. Relatively good value menu that is by no means restricted to fish as the publicity outside suggests. We have only eaten on the outside terrace, but it looks nice inside also. Food very nice and we had an excellent evening meal.

Thought of as a fish restaurant, but also serve meats. Was busy when we called without a reservation, but a table became free after 20 minutes (but could go for a nice walk nearby whilst waiting). Had a range of food between the three of us, all good, especially the Strawberry Melba my wife and I had to finish. Friendly... More

Really lovely setting and food was good but not really special - Despite booking in advance via Moulin d 'la Abbaye when we arrived we had no reservation but they kindly gave us a nice table ! The visit from a local 'Otter' was a special treat !

We had dinner here with friends who live nearby. Although the menu was limited, the food was delightful and we had a very pleasant evening.

I was uncertain as to how to rate this restaurant. We had an outside table, on the edge of the river. Great location. For a starter I had whitebait, but it was overlooked, as were the vegetables with the main course. Probably would not eat there again as it was also expensive given the quality of the food.

As moulin D'abbaye is closed for dinner on Tuesday's we booked this. It's bistrot style and inexpensive but we had a really good basic meal here. The sea bass was excellent and my Magret de Canard was one of the best I've eaten - very tender! Basic wine list but we enjoyed our St Emilion. Service was very friendly and... More
