Brantôme has some great places to eat, although since it is a ‘tourist’ town you also have to be a little careful where you go. Luckily there are some wonderful places to eat! Let us know if you recommend anywhere that’s not on this list.

Restaurant Charbonnel 0553057015

57 rue Gambetta Brantôme  Website

This restaurant is part of a hotel and is on the river just down from the abbey at Brantôme.  It serves delicious local cuisine with a touch of excellence that makes it stand above the rest.  Menus start at 39E, and wines from about 21E, and the quality of the meal, and overall ambience is way ahead of anything else in town.  It may seem a little intimidating from the outside, but the service is superb, and both managers and waiters very polite and friendly.  Once you’ve eaten here, you won’t want to eat anywhere else.  Read more
