We really enjoyed our meal here - slightly away from the main tourist area of Sarlat, this restaurant focusses on its food and its prices. It was reassuring to see that so many of the other tables were filled with locals - always a good sign! Food was excellent throughout, beautiful steak and coq au vin, great service and a... More

Excellent food, very authentic French, excellent service. Highly recommended. The duck was beautifully cooked. The seafood was very fresh and cooked to perfection. Desserts were delicious.

The restaurant is located on a corner with indoor and outdooor seating, it is situated next to the beginning of the market streets in Sarlat. It was a very good lunch and as we choose a market day it was the perfect place to eat and stroll the area.

Have eaten here several times, and was particularly happy on this occasion. The vegetarian at our table was well looked after, so was my father (not too keen on the desserts on the list, so had one made up for him!) and so was our dog (given a much needed bowl of water very rapidly) Our waiter, Jean-Marie, was very...

I visit Sarlat regularly, but I am never sure where is best to eat, wanting to avoid the overly touristy restaurants and ensure good quality food. I am an avid fan of the Bruno, Chief of Police series of novels by francophile, Martin Walker. His website, dedicated to Bruno, recommends Le Bistrot de l'Octroi and I was not disappointed. Great...

We went to this restaurant based on recommendation of another couple staying at our B&B in Sarlat. It was one of the best meals we had during our 3+ weeks in France. We went there for dinner on a Sunday and as we had no booking, we decided to go early. We were lucky to get a table as the... More

Over these two nights we had a variety of dishes, including entrees of herring salad, crudites, and pate de foie gras all of which were very good and for mains we... More

Our friends had been the night before and enjoyed their meals , so decided to chance it again. We were ushered in immediately, given a menu and plenty of time to peruse! 2 had the baked fish, 1 the chicken, 2 veal & 1 the goose. All agreed their meals were delicious. Meals and drinks were served promptly despite the... More
