In Domme Auberge de la Rode - Situated on the place de la Rode, the restaurant specialises in local cuisine. The menu is built around fresh produce and the food is well prepared and presented. Friendly service and reasonable priced. Cabanoix et Chataignes http://www.restaurantcabanoix.com The best, decent value for money restaurant in the village. Local cooking with a modern twist. A focus on fois-gras, but lots of other options including vegetarian. Pleasant, shaded terrace. You'll need to reserve in high season and not expect rapid service. L'Esplanadehttps://www.esplanade-perigord.com/ The destination for a special occasion. The tables on the terrace have the best view of the village and arguably of the whole area. This is gastronomic eating, an excellent wine list and traditional waiter service. Reservations are recommended to secure a table with a view. Unsurprisingly, the price reflects the experience though the lunch-time menu is an affordable alternative. Comptoir d'Annam - For a change from local french cuisine, the Vietnamese owner and chef provides a menu of fresh produce all cooked on demand. Service can be a little slow given that all is freshly prepared, so be prepared to relax and enjoy.
A quick bite to eat/snack Le Médiéval - Excellent value for money. Whilst the menu is not adventurous, the portions are copious and all produced from fresh ingredients. A menu of a starter, main course and dessert starts at € 14. Or you can just have 1 course, a pancake or an icecream if you'd rather. Pizzeria des Templiers - Good family option. There are some toppings options with a more local theme, which makes a change from the standard pizzas. Reasonably priced but again don't expect rapid service at peak times. Des Idées à la Noixhttp://www.des-idees-a-la-noix.fr/ Tea garden and creperie with a simple home cooked menu. A quiet, pretty terrace. Closed in the evening.
A bit further afield … Petit Parishttp://www.le-petit-paris.fr/ An excellent restaurant. What's not to like, from the smile of the owner, to the discreet attention from the waiting staff and the savoir-faire of the kitchen staff. The food is an inventive twist on the the traditional. Good fish options and remember to leave space for dessert. Great value for money and an excellent reasonably priced wine list, though stocks run low towards the end of the season. The chef will prepare a meal for non fish eating vegetarians if requested when booking. Daglan, 11km Diablo Fraise, see their Facebook page. Simple but very good. Not a massive choice, but all is home cooked using home-grown and locally sourced produce. Quality, high flavour, rustic food. Lunch is excellent value at 4 courses for € 14. They are only open on weekdays and do not take credit or debit cards, in order to keep prices low. Nabirat, 10km Le Chalet - Great family option next to the river. This is one big pop-up restaurant that serves arguable the best steak and steak tartare around. Salads are really good too. There are smaller, snack options for the kids and a well equipped play ground to burn off their energy. A great place to watch the sun go down over the Dordogne (as above). If it's hot, book at table on the terrace under the trees. Pont de Vitrac, 5km
La Belle Etoilehttp://hotel-belle-etoile-dordogne.fr/ Another excellent restaurant, with the tables on the terrace overlooking the Dordogne. High class food and quality service. Lighter options available. La Roque Gagéac, 5km Sawadee https://www.restaurant-thai-dordogne.com/ Good Thai restaurant next to the bridge at Cénac. Friendly welcome and good food prepared by the Thai chef. Reservations recommended. Take-away option available. Cénac, 1.3km La Traverse chez les Filles, see their Facebook page. Nice relaxed restaurant with a few tables on the pavement. The staff are very welcoming, the food is simple and really tasty. Good value for money. Cénac, 1km
For those wanting to burn off a few calories post-indulgence or wanting to leave the car in Domme, it only takes 20 minutes to climb back up from Cénac, if you take the road in front of La Traverse chez les Filles. The first few hundred metres are the most difficult, after that it's a pleasant stroll back up to Domme.
