Rounding out the restaurant list in the Dordogne

I will be celebrating a big divisible by 10 birthday this year in the Dordogne. Staying in a small town called Nadaillac de Rogue, south of Souillac. The actual birthday meal will be at Le Viuex Logis in Tremolat. Want to book a number of smaller but excellent places. Have been to the area twice before- Bergerac and Montignac- but this time will be farther east. Any recommendations in the area. Be there first two weeks in July 2010. Thanks very much. Dave.,

  1. You are not far from ferme-auberge le Bougayrou, east of Souillac in Lacave. It may be my fave ferme-auberge in France. I have recommended it several times on CH, which you can search easily. It serves farme-fresh ingredients, from its own farm or from nearby associate farms. Must book wayyyy ahead for July. Lunch in its garden is a good option.

      Any guidance on choosing between Chateau de la Treyne and Chateau Pont de L'Ouysee in the Lacave area. Thanks. David.

        Of all the eateries nearby in that area, I think one eats best at the ferme-auberge le Bougayrou, because all the ingredients come from thte farm itself.
        Pont de L'Ouysee and Chateau de la Treyne are a close second in quality.
        They are real restaurants and are not ferme-auberges and have a bigger menu.
        Chateau de la Treyne is a beautiful castle hotel, at an amazing reasonable price. In terms of setting, if you have not "done" a castle, this could be an experience.

          many thanks. Have scheduled lunch at Le Vieux Logis, Le Bougayrou and am adding Chateau de la Treyne. You're the best!

            Mais non mais non. I happen to love farm-fresh dishes prepared simply. Le Vieux Logis and Le Bougayrou will give you excellent contrasting experience.

      2. Just a correction - you will be in Nadaillac de ROUGE, - only about 10 minutes from us. If you are going to the Vieux Logis, I'd highly recommend the weekday lunch menu. Excellent value, superb food, and since it's a good hour's drive home, better to do it in the afternoon than in the dark after a long meal.

        Also consider Bistrot: d'Epicure in Castels, just outside St Cyprien. I've never seen it mentioned here, but it's very good, more interesting food than many other duck-centred restaurants, and run by a charming couple.: 05 53 30 40 95

          Thanx Carlus for this tip. The problem with the Dordogne/Lot area is that although the food is great, the restaurant menus get repetitious after the 4th day in the region it seems.

            thanks for the tip. It says you are ten minutes away. Where are you? Any other local tips?
