Definitely a place frequented by locals - it was excellent, particularly the salads and the duck confit and the prices were very reasonable!

We were staying at Manoir Petit Meysett, just up the hill from L'Octroi, and went there twice. It is not holding out as fine dining (for that, go to Jardins D'Harmonie!) but is good regional cooking and is very popular with locals, something that is a very positive sign in any tourist town. We had goose breast, home made pate... More

Recommended to us by a local. It is probably the busiest joint in Sarlat. Crowds of people stormed the place throughout our dinner, including a 20+ person group occupying the 1st floor space inside creating an unpleasant disturbance. Our poor waitress looked like she was on the verge of crying, having had to deal with constant pressure from the tables... More

We are staying just down the road and found this a convenient and pleasant place to eat just out of the old town area in Sarlat. It has a local menu but we chose the veal and cod and enjoyed both our meals and the polite and attentive service with good wine choices. It seems quite popular and was almost... More

A great meal here the other week!! The menu is relatively small and specialises in food popular in this part of France mainly duck and Goose based dishes. My meal consisted of fois gras, goose and ile flotante. All were excellent and the cahors red went perfectly with it. Service was fantastic, the price was very good and its only... More

We have eaten here at least 5 times over the past three years. It is a consistently super restaurant. There are always great choices available from the specials. Unlike my husband, I don't like foie gras and I'm not a huge fan of duck or goose. However, I always find something delicious here, often the beef. The service is always... More

With a recommendation, we had excellent food at this bistro ten minutes walk from the old town centre. Salad and duck carpaccio starters both superb. Excellent veal for main course, though truffle tagliatelle a little bland. Good desserts and cheese, and a nice range of wines. Plenty of duck and foie gras dishes too. Definitely felt a cut above the... More

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
