Great Experience, Delicious Food ! - Edit

A very great experience at this restaurant in a region where it is often difficult to find vegetarian food! Very welcoming, everything is homemade and top quality! We are a couple travelling across France this summer, and this is easily one of the best veggie restaurants we have found. It's worth a visit to Périgueux just to give it a try!

Très bonne expérience dans ce restaurant dans une région où c’est souvent difficile de trouver de la nourriture végétarienne. Très accueillant, tout est fait maison et de très bonne qualité ! Nous sommes un couple en train de voyager en France cet été, et c’était parmi les meilleurs restaurants végé que l’on ait trouvés. Ca vaut le coup d’aller à Périgueux juste pour l’essayer !

Pros: Fait Maison / Homemade, Bon Service / Friendly Service, Créatif / Creative

Cons: None !

super nice food - Edit

nice service, really nice food, nothing bad to say there!
not really expensive, either, considering how much there is to eat. too bad it's not all-vegan (there is cheese in several dishes every day - and it's not vegan cheese because vegan organic cheeses are apparently hard to come by and they still want cheese there...).

Pros: in Périgueux!, really good food, all organic

Cons: animal cheese

parfait ! un délice ! - Edit

Que ce soit les entrées, les plats ou le dessert, tout est fait maison et tout est excellent !
Izba vous avez été mon premier restaurant vegetarien et ce fut magique ! J'y ai emmené ma tante et mon oncle, deux omnivores et tendance carnivore qui ont été séduits et on meme tentés de reproduire vos plats à la maison ! Merci pour ce moment délicieux ! Je reviendrais vous voir avec grand plaisir !
Accueil chaleureux, le patron du restaurant est très charmant et nous explique chaque plat avec autant de passion que sa chef cuisinière qui fair un travail remarquable !

No foie gras on the menu! - Edit

What a little gem! IZBA is a welcome change to the foie gras laden menus of the Dordogne. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and was thrilled to see healthy options that weren't omelettes. Friendly atmosphere, some jazz playing, and a very nice couple running the restaurant. The owner actually referred us to two other veggie-friendly restaurants for our next destinations, which we happily tried. (I'll write a review of L'Oiseau Cabosse in Bordeaux.) I enjoyed my vegan creme brulee for dessert. We also appreciated the bread which was a homemade creation with some interesting spices. They really put in the extra effort to give you a dining experience at an affordable price.

Definitely worth a visit if you are anywhere near Perigueux. Closed Sunday and Monday along with virtually everything else in town. Visited June 2012.

Pros: Great food, Interesting owners, Easy to find

Veggie oasis in the Dordogne - a great find! - Edit

Izba is a veggie oasis in the Dorgogne, which is otherwise a desert for vegans and lacto-vegetarians. After spending five days traversing the Dordogne eating nothing but salads, bread, and the occasional cheese-free pizza, it was a heartwarming delight to be greeted upon entering Izba with the question, "Are you vegetarian or vegan?"

It gets better: Izba uses all organic ingredients, mostly local, and they make everything from scratch. Even their seitan is homemade. The wholesome and inventive food takes influences from across Europe and further afield. (Note: It seems the menu changes periodically, so what you see on the website may or may not reflect what's currently being served.)

There were vegan options for all courses: appetizers, main dishes, and desserts. The zucchini galette with mushrooms was particularly scrumptious, and the strawberry with oat-milk pudding dessert was heavenly. Given the high quality of the food, it's rather impressive that they're able to keep the prices so low - starting around 8 euros for a set meal.

The owner is a warm, friendly gentleman who speaks English (as well as French, of course) and clearly cares about his guests and wants them to be happy.

All in all, a very pleasant experience worth the drive from the southern Dordogne. And, while you're in Périgueux, don't miss the chance to take a walk around the pedestrian-only historic center of the town, with its massive Byzantine cathedral and charming cobblestone streets - all just a few blocks from Izba.

Enjoy! :-)

Pros: All organic and VERY vegan-friendly, very reasonable prices, warm, friendly service with good English

Cons: none!
