Interesting menu, slightly pretentious place, though nothing bad, just not as extremely wonderful as it thinks itself to be! Price excessive for what's delivered.

My fiancé and I had already ear markers to visit this place on our return to Riberac this year and it certainly didn't disappoint! Given the fact we showed up without a reservation (recommend if more than 2 of you wish to eat) we were shown to a table. For a Saturday night it was busy but as the restaurant... More

We always like coming here, the food is always fabulous and the service excellent, we always find the owner very helpful at guiding us on the choice of wine and all those little touches make for a very good dining experience. I look forward to our next visit

We came across this restaurant while visiting Riberac on market day. It is a beautiful restaurant with excellent service. We both had the set menu, choosing the sole and the duck. All three of our courses were delicious. We shall return!

Booked table for lunch (it was Friday and market day in Riberac) and we were very happy with the meal that we were served. Tasty starter (a sort of Scotch egg with copious salad leaves) Pork with sauce and a small selection of veg for main, and a delicious assortment of 3 desserts. All for 16€ - truly excellent value!...

Set menu was either fish or steak. Fish a bit dry, the steak tasty but gristly.Chips good but few vegetables. Pudding excellent. The decanted vin Rosé was basic. The service was excellent as usual & the proprietor as courteous as ever. Have been there many time in groups and with friends. I understood that the proprietor is Swiss . He... More

Le Citronnier embraces the true definition french cuisine in the heart of Riberac. Our party was staying at the nearby Chateau Le Mas de Montet for a wedding and on our last night altogether we decided last minute to dine one more time as a group. Le Citronnier accomodated our group of 30 and reserved seats for the lot of... More

The chicken and duck was tasty but very little in the way of vegetables - 1 piece of broccoli and a spoonful of Swede. There was very little choice on a Saturday lunchtime - no starters at all and just cheese or profiterol for dessert.

Very good restaurant with excellent food and service. Get there before 9pm for the set meal price. Lovely outside courtyard for fine weather. Open when some of the other restaurants in town are shut. Really good food and great choice of wine.
