Dix Vins Restaurant and Bar, 7 rue du Colonel de Chadois
The Dix Vins restaurant is in the medieval centre of Bergerac near to the covered market.
The interior is very modern, gleaming white walls and a large white central bar, black leather chairs and tablecloths and colour is added with subtle LED lighting. The overall effect is sleek, modern but still very welcoming. An effect added to by the smiling and attentive bar staff and waiter and waitress.
This is a very poor picture of the interior - I will try to get a better one when the restaurant is less full - another good sign by the way as we went on a rainy Thursday lunchtime in November!
The menu is inovative and nicely presented. This too offers a modern take on some traditional favourites.
My starter was creme brulée with foie gras an interesting mix of sweet and savoury which I found absolutely delicious. My partner had a very tasty fish soup.
The lunch menu for 14 euros offers a choice of 3 starters, 3 main courses and 3 desserts. You can skip dessert and pay 11 euros. Wine was very reasonably priced too.
My main course of fresh salmon from the market grilled and served with a tagliatelle that was made very tasty with the addition of shredded leeks and chopped chives.
In the evening there is a traditional Perigordine menu for 18 euros or a seafood menu for 26 euros. There are also some pasta dishes such as lasagne - useful if you are eating out with children or looking for a cheap but tasty meal.
The Dix Vins restaurant is at 7 Rue du Colonel de Chadois in the old town of Bergerac.
On sunny days they have a small terrace so you can sit outside.
