Gourmet Restaurant

Enjoy good food and fine local produce in the Dordogne

We believe a great dinner is more than just good food and wine – we pride ourselves on our friendly service and warm welcome too.

In the Dordogne, it goes without saying that eating well is part of living well. Here at La Salvetat, we specialise in gourmet French cuisine with a modern influence, using mainly local produce and herbs from Ann’s aromatic garden. Our food is freshly prepared and cooked in our kitchen and served with a smile in an idyllic setting surrounded by lawns, flower borders and trees.

“An elegant restaurant offering gastronomic cuisine, creative and refined, highlighting the art of cooking and featuring meticulous service. All the pleasures of gastronomy.” Logis de France

Our romantic restaurant is decorated with subtle colours and has a huge open log fire in the cooler months. In summer guests dine on the pretty shaded planted terrace with panoramic views over the open countryside. In the kitchen Ann and our chef prepare seasonal menus with vegetarian and gluten free options using exceptional local ingredients ‘produits du terroirwherever possible.

Our restaurant is open every evening and on Sunday for lunch and dinner. Evenings 19h15 – 20h45 (last order), Sunday lunch 12 noon – 13h30 (last order).

Food and Wine from the Area

The Dordogne is the region of duck products including foie gras, magret (the succulent duck breast fillet) and confit de canard (duck leg prepared in a centuries-old process of preservation that consists of salt curing and then cooking it in its own fat), black truffles, wild mushrooms (typically cèpes and girolles), walnuts and of course the wines of Bergerac.

In Aquitaine, situated on both sides of the Dordogne river, the Bergerac vineyards covers 13,000 hectares over 93 villages. Amongst the 13 appellations there is the most famous sweet wines of Monbazillac but also the dry whites, the marvelously fruity rosés and the complex reds of Pécharment and Montravel.

Our Menu

The time to take your time ….

Ann and Steven Jordan welcome you to their home and invite you to share this place of tranquillity and beauty which is built around a former 14th century presbytery.

We believe a fine dinner is more than just great food and wine we pride ourselves on our friendly service and warm ambience.  All our dishes are made in our kitchen by our kitchen team.

Here at La Salvetat we support the principles of Slow Food which is a non-profit, eco-gastronomic member-supported organization that was founded in 1989 to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.

However ……. if you are in a hurry please let us know when you place your order!

The menu at l’Auberge de La Salvetat uses locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, varies with the seasons and draws its inspiration from the market place.

We do not have a set menu but prefer to give our clients a choice of the whole menu for a reasonable price. We do have some suggestions from the chef which due to the cost of the main ingredients carry a supplement.
