The food is simple but of the highest quality with salads imaginatively and deliciously garnished. Frankly the bread is so good it is worth a visit for that alone! The desserts are always scrumptious. The "self-service" gives a relaxed atmosphere but the thoughtfulness and concern for the well-being of clients is evident. (free picnic blankets, papers, dog bowls etc) Delightfully... More

We stumbled across this little cafe as we walked around the little village. It's on a riverbank. We had a coffee and a 1/3rd bottle of white wine for €5.30, extremely good value, although the food looked slightly expensive for where it was. Very quiet and relaxing and very typically French...lovely..

A truly wonderful place to have a light lunch by the river. Our 2nd visit to this lovely village but first time eating in this little snack bar. Limited menu but it is not a place for a full blown lunch, just a light menu and beers to enjoy al fresco

We were 7 members in our party and we had lunch at this beautiful place along the river. Ideal setting and the food is really good here. We tried the salads, etc and thoroughly enjoyed them.

A very pleasant spot on the Vezere river with a rustic restaurant feel and delightful shaded tables along the riverbank. The menu was limited but when it was finally available it was very pleasant. The restaurant was packed, which says a lot for it, but the wait for the food to be ready (you collect it yourself from the counter)... More

Located on the bank of the Vézère river in the heart of one of the most beautiful villages of France, this little snack bar offers home made and tasty sandwiches, quiches, and cakes. Although a little too expensive (count 10 euros the quiche or the sandwich, and 3 euros a small piece of nut cake), it's a perfect stop on... More

Good rustic french food in a riverside setting. You have to buy your food in the shop which means a very long queue so more of a cafe than restaurant. Very relaxed and a good place to spend an afternoon, lazing or swimming in the Vezere.

It was So hot today in Dordogne. We found this small joint behind the church on the bank of river Vézère. Simple food, excellent cider,fast do it yourself service And lunch on the river bank. Salads And cold cuts for 2 with a bottle of cider for 30€ is quite cheap these days !
