Lovely bistro

Simple well cooked food in a very pleasant setting, service very friendly too - the symphonie dessert was well worth the extravagance!

A firm favourite with our family and friends locally! The food is always of excellent quality, the service is brisk and friendly and attentive. It says a great deal for this popular haunt in Sarlat that they were able to accommodate an unplanned group alongside business people, holidaymakers and our family including three small grandchildren. It is truly a gem... More

The food is really good. Always go for the foie gras or terrine Du canard. The confit du canard is delicious and a must try.

We had the 14 euro set lunch (2 courses plus coffee and a glass of wine) at Le Bistro de l'Octroi: really good! It is just on the little roundabout where the market starts on Saturdays. You would need to book as it is popular with the locals as well as with the huge number of tourists, partly because it... More

We went here twice during our stay in Sarlat and found it very good on both occasions! I had the duo of foie gras on each visit, followed by the Veal Rossini - absolutely delicious! My wife had asparagus and their duo of foie gras and loved her dishes too. You have to try the duo of foie gras -... More

We had dinner at this bistro twice while in Sarlat. It's a little more upmarket, with decent three course meals. The goose in particular is good. If your looking for a relaxed evening away from the busy town centre with good regional food, this is the one. I can definitely recommend it.

After a few disappointing meals since starting our road trip across France, this restaurant lived up to its outstanding reviews. There were 4 of us (2 couples) and we decided to mix and match the set menus. The waiting staff were really friendly and despite the slight language barrier, made us feel really welcome. Each plate came with a mixture... More
