food was barely edible. after 1.5 hours waiting for a salad, I was told the waiter forgot to put my order in. When it did arrive it was so bad, we left without eating our dessert. Terrible experience. Avoid this "restaurant."

I'm glad I didn't read the reviews before visiting, because we would have missed out on a wonderful meal. We must have hit the sweet spot for this place. We showed up at 8:30 on a crowded Saturday Night in La Roque-Gageac, but like magic...More

We were hoping for a view of the river and found it on the upstairs terrace of L'Ancre d'Or. The restaurant was empty when we entered and we were greeted by very friendly staff. The waiter was very helpful. We enjoyed the lunch Menu. The...More

We were so impressed with the menu board on the street, so we went up the stairs expecting a French treat. Sadly the restaurant looks 'tired' with old floral table cloths. I opted for the 'Escalope de foie gras de canard aux griottes' @ 18...More

Not the best food in the Dordogne, but the terrace has the best view! Stick to the duck or steak....

The average food is saved by the lovely views from the 1st floor terrace of this restaurant and so it is worth a lunchtime visit for this alone.
