We booked the day before and got a good table, the staff were friendly just not on the ball yes they were busy and probably understaffed but that should not be passed onto the guest. We were left for 10 minutes before anyone asked us about drinks, and another 10 minutes before food order was taken... there was no theatre... More

Arrived 15 minutes early for our reservation (we had thought 19h00 but the restaurant does not actually open until 19h15). Nevertheless, they showed us right away to a table situated at the tip of the terrace overlooking the city and got us drinks. This was only the start of the attentive and friendly service we experienced all evening. Cuisine was... More

I found information about this restaurant here at TripAdvisor. It is important to reserve a table in advance for dinner. I would say it's good restaurant with reasonable prices but not more than that. If you plan to have dinner I think it's would be better to reserve a table inside the restaurant because its a little bit dark outside.... More

Was here with my family for dinner. The team is clearly well trained and efficient, food was better than most restaurants in Sarlat. The fact that it's located slightly away from the main streets meant it wasn't surrounded by tourists like most other restaurants. What's spoilt it was the team's unwillingness in moving our party to an outdoor table when... More

A visit to the Octroi is always a pleasure. This is an authentic French bistro and a favourite of the local business community in Sarlat. The new verandah has made outdoor eating a delight, whatever the weather. There is also a terrace. Food is freshly prepared to order and simply served with style. Excellent value for money, attentive and welcoming... More

The food at this restaurant was excellent along with the location and atmosphere. The service was also very good. Unlike many other restaurants in Sarlat, the menu was not overshadowed by mostly duck and foie gras dishes. The highlight was the 9 piece dessert tasting plate! Highly recommended.

I had an excellent dinner here with friends, and very friendly, but slow, service. More than once, we had to remind the waiter that someone was waiting on a glass of wine, or bread, etc.

Lovely food ,lovely staff. Ate here for last two nights as so good. We were disappointed with restaurants in central Sarlat but this restaurant just on edge of Medieval centre more than made up for it.

The food was good, a world away from tourist-traps in town centre. However even there the service we received was superb in contrast to here. Our server (short blonde hair woman) started by 'doing us favour' to give us a table when we arrived without a reservation. We ordered, had starter and then she ignored us for abt 30 mins... More
