You must sit on the terrace and watch the sun set while you eat because the views are unbelievable. Great atmosphere. great service, friendly staff. I am a non-french speaker and they were really helpful. But far and away the best part of La Mandragore is the food!!! It is slightly different than what you would typically find in the... More

With its slight Asian twist, La Mandragore menu offers a welcome variation to the common Périgordian menu that is the staple fare of most restaurants in the region. Catering to both meat and fish lovers, we recently had another fabulous meal there. Starting with the warm melon and foie gras, we moved on to the most stunning onglet de boeuf... More

We have had some great meals in Terrasson but this topped them all. We had the Chefs choice for an amazing value of just 25 euro - prawn and scallop, followed by an outstanding white fish with risotto and canard jus and Parmesan, finished with a lovely citrus panecotta. Absolutely wonderful. Just behind the Abbey - dont miss it!

We organized a family event here and booked the whole outside area. It was wonderful, the view over Terrasson and the food. Everything was magnificent.

The outside tables offer a panoramic view from the ramparts. You may see the chef coming out from his kitchen to fetch fresh herbs from the garden. They will be on your delicious and beautifully decorated plate in a moment! Sitting inside or out, the food is great in taste and presentation. Service friendly though with limited English.

First the location : probably the best view of the village and the more quiet restaurant. The food is really good, simple and quite elaborate in the same time. Price is ok, and the kid menu is great :12 € but with a lot of really good food (not junk food). Service is sometimes slow, but you are there to... More

We had an excellent meal here before a visit to local gardens. The lunch menu was interesting and every course was attractive to look at and delicious to eat. A nice wine list and good coffee topped things off nicely. I think this was as good as some one-star Michelin places I have eaten at elsewhere - highly recommended.

The Mandragore restaurant is a so sophisticated restaurant. You can find a little garden inside the restaurant where the waiter pick vegetables up in order to cook. The price are a little expensive but it's a perfect occasion if you want to celebrate something in family or with your friends :)

The weather wasn't co-operating when we visited La Mandragore so we couldn't take advantage of the enchanting terrace beside the herb garden with its views over the town. However, the inside of the building was equally agreeable, with its white-painted, vaulted ceiling and well-spaced tables. Our meal was exquisitely prepared and presented, without the overly rich sauces that often accompany... More
