Picnic tables next to the river. The menu is small, but tasty. Informal, pretty. What's not to like?

A charming outdoor spot by the Vezere river with self service and picnic tables. Small menu with soup, 3 kinds of open sandwiches, 3 kinds of quiche, 3 salads etc. The potato and leek soup was bad, flavorless and thin. Spinach and mushroom quiches were...More
