Just when you think a small hamlet can't surprise the taste buds think again. This husband and wife team have never ceased to impress me with enticing, affordable menus with local produce, seasonal twist and with such value for money. The surroundings are clean, simple and the only downside is the unforgiving lighting but served with a smile. An unexpected treat bravo!

This small welcoming restaurant is modern , and does delicious lunch pre fixe, with choices for a very reasonable amount , I have been many times at lunch and in the evening too and not been disappointed. Welcoming and friendly, food is very good and freshly prepared. Much better than the more expensive choice in Perignac and many others in larger towns, a little hidden gem.

We asked the proprietor of the small hotel we were staying at to recommend a place for us to eat. She said that there were two establishments in the village. One was "stuffy but good" while the other was not as pretentious and the food was equally good. Laid back as we are we chose the above establishment. We got to the restaurant about twenty minutes before they were officially opened for dining. We found the family eating at one of the tables. Seeing that we were foreigners, they allowed us to sit at a table while we waited. It turns out that the husband was the cook and the wife was the waitress. Everything was in French. It was a small out of the way village after all. My wife and I speak French, but foods tend to show our weaknesses. Luckily, the waitress spoke some English and between the three of us we were able to translate the menu board for our travelling companions who speak no French at all. We had a very entertaining evening with the waitress and some of the locals who dropped-in a little later in the evening. Oh, and the food was great. I had escargot in the shell that was prepared with olive oil, vegetables and I assume garlic and a wine sauce. Just marvelous. It was a great evening. A fun evening. A rewarding evening. One of our pleasant dining experiences.

Run by Patrick and Sandrine, this small restaurant in the village of Perignac provides excellent food at remarkable prices, particularly at lunchtime. The menu appears to change daily and (2013) for 11.50 euros at lunchtime gives a four course meal with 250 ml of wine! Evening menus are 15 and 21 euros and also provide excellent value. Lunchtime is very busy so best to reserve. Perfect for a family lunch.
