L'Esplanade Restaurant Review

: The marvelous, panoramic view of the Dordogne River from this elegant, antique-furnished dining room will make you forget the food for a little while. But you will soon be distracted by the recipes perfected by René Gillard and prepared by Pascal Bouland, who treat rich, regional ingredients with great delicacy. Unfortunately, these costly products also inflate the bill. The first fixed-price menu is a good bet. A well-diversified wine list, especially rich in Cahors and Bergeracs.
