We had an excellent diner at this Michelin star rated restaurant, with tastefull and well prepared dishes form a correctly priced 4 course menu. One small remark on the wine is that the bottle of regional red wine was taken from a cupboard in the dining room in stead of coming from the cellar, so the wine was by far... More

Located near train station within easy walking distance of the old city this is truly a local gem. Attentive service, menus of increasing levels of complexity,this restaurant is clearly able to delight the traveller looking for an lovely meal. Recommend the foie gras, fish and soufflé. Staff knowledgeable and helpful with wines.

The food was wonderful, and the service was even better. All the waiters spoke good English and were easy to understand. They even had the meny in English, so as a tourist is was easy to see and understand what was what. Really Michelin worthy, highly recommended .

A few days ago, our group of 4, thoroughly enjoyed a magnificent, delicious lunch - absolutely outstanding. From the moment we were warmly welcomed at the door, and shown to our round table, we felt that we had booked the right place. The service was impeccable, and our courses were timed appropriately. The menu and wine list was extensive and... More

Vacillating between three and four rating. A good experience, but not outstanding. The majority of the courses were excellent, some unexpwcted, but excellent combinations, but the plat was an insipid beef dish, overdone and without much flavor. Most of the waitstaff were excellent, but one waitress was quite brusque, barely informing us of the lunch menu - a quick choice... More

Le Grand Bleu is hard to appraise based on a single experience. The room is a bit stuffy, the service oddly stiff and almost unfriendly, the food well prepared, although in a way peculiar. There's a lot of foam, and one begins to wonder if there's more chemistry than cuisine. Often it works, and subtle flavors emerge. However, many of... More

We have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. The food is always excellent as is the welcome and service. Anyone visiting this part of the Dordogne should book a table.

We went there for my birthday. I wanted to experience the delights of the work of a Michelin starred chef. I was not disappointed, although my partner was not totally enamoured with her main course. I had pieds de couchon,(pig's feet) as an enter, with was a clever combination of flavours. Delicious. Main course was Goose, winch was cooked to... More

I dined at Le Grand Bleu last night as a party of four. We ordered the 4 course menu at 65 Euro pp which I believe was excellent value. To start a wonderful Amuse Boucher, followed by Fois gras, John Dory and a main course of Goose breast with sweet potato , walnuts and carrot, which I believe was one... More

The reservation was for myself and my son for the night of our arrival in Sarlat . We arrived a little early and were standing outside . They graciously invited us in and we were able... More
