A Great Introduction to Michelin Dining

So, if you can ignore this aspect, consider yourself as a participant of a fine dining experience at a discount. I was fortunate enough to be invited to dinner and did not have to pay the bill.

Tastefully decorated dining room.The menu was varied and the wine list excellent. The food was prepared to the highest standard and beautifully prepared. The waiting staff were attentive without...

The restaurant is close to the train station, the atmosphere is quite modern. The menu is a true pleasure with a nice kids' menu (nice option for michelin starred restaurant). The food lives up to its' reputation and is really tasty. The menu offers nice regional specialities.do book in advance as it gets busy.

the food and service were quite good. From the amuse bouche to the dessert, each course was a pleasant mix of flavors and visually appealing. We would recommend it.

We fell for its Michelin star. The food was fussy and, when it came right down to it, not all that good, just pretentious.

Our first Michelin experience and we weren't disappointed. Fabulous food that included blending of flavours I wouldn't have expected. The service was attentive but not intrusive. Not a cheap night out but Not exorbitant either. Worth it for a special treat.

True fine dining in Sarlat, thankfully away from the tourist crowds. Service is warm and efficient. The ambiance is modern and stylish. The food was excellent. All dishes were great, but the squab was a stand-out. I also ordered a very odd dessert choice -- black olive macaron with strawberries and a green asparagus cream along with a black olive... More

The sole criticism of this restaurant is that it is located slightly inconveniently by the train station and not really walkable from the old town center. Once inside the restaurant, the elegant décor and welcoming ambience make one forget this quickly. The food is divine - traditional and farm fresh with a creative delicately flavored spin. From the foie gras... More
