Ideal family bistro with delicious food.

We went on the recommendation of our hotel our first night and enjoyed it so much we returned. The chalk board at the entry always lists the specials for the day and we generally chose from among those. Among the entrees, we tried a delicate leek tart, light and fresh with a little salad, and a... read more

Excellent local dishes, fairly priced. Friendly, helpful staff, though mostly French-speaking. Make sure you reserve, hard to get into

Flexibility around the basic menu and daily specials gives a wide range of options should you be starting to flag with all things duck and goose. Food was excellent and service great. This is somewhere we would return to!

The Dordogne would have to be one of the most boring food destinations. Every restaurant does virtually the same Magret or Confit of Duck. Fois Gras, omelette cheese and more cheese. Great to begin with but how much of this can one eat The Bistro offers food with the same theme. Nothing extraordinary

We have been to France many times and usually find one place that is truly memorable.This was it. We are staying in a house in Sarlat and have walked into the old city every night for dinner and passed this place. It was recommended by our owner and other people staying at the house but we were saving it until... More

Great location and food, close to down town. I had the venison and it was die for. My wife had goat cheese melted on bread which she enjoyed very much.

Our first night in Sarlat after a week in Paris and 4 nights in the Loire. All in my family of 4 agreed this was our best meal so far (ok, it was equal best for 2 of us with a Parisian dinner we all enjoyed). If you are keen to sample duck, goose, fois gras and other regional specialties... More

In a few days visit to Perigord and Dordogne, Sarlat was our center of operations. We had dinner here a few times, trying different menus. All them was very well prepared and served, at a reasonable price.
