Rather than just write a report of where and what we ate I decided to mention the best dishes at each place. We had a lot of great meals. Our preference is to dine at places with seasonal creative menus which generally translates to high prices but that is what we like. There was not any place where we felt the price to value was out of line and only a couple of places where we had problems with the service. Since we were formerly 'in the business' that makes us fairly forgiving of services issues in a busy establishment. If it is empty and has issues we picked wrong.
Also for my birthday I recieved a camera and attempted to photography the dishes we had. Several times we just picked up our forks before I remembered the camera. I have put in some of the best photos.

101.50€- two formulae @ 26.00€ with a 5€ supplement (don’t remember on which dish), two glasses of champagne, a glass each white & red and an Armagnac
We had dinner here our first night in the Dordogne. It was recommended by the gite owners and was very nice. The stand out dish here was pate of veal & foie gras. Though to be honest the best parts were tiny marinated girolles and a relish/sauce of walnuts, persillade and some vinegar. Will definitely try to recreate that!
