Great Evening

Good food Good value Good service, 10 minutes off the touring trap but well worthwhile. Back again for sure. Set Menus offer good choice and wine not overpriced.

The restaurant itself and the setting was lovely however we attended on a night when a bus load of tourists decided to also attend and subsequently it was rather noisy. The chicken cassoulet was wonderful as was the entrecôte.

The evening before visiting this restaurant we had our most expensive and rather average meal at another establishment. Lunch here restored my faith. We had the 14 Euro menu of entree, plat, wine and coffee or you can replace the entree with dessert. We both agreed that the plat was amongst the best we have had from almost four weeks... More

Our group of 24 was offered two appetizers and two entrees. All four dishes were excellent, as was the molten chocolate cake for dessert. The appetizers were pan-sauteed foie gras and mixed salad with shredded warm salmon: very tasty. Entrees were duck breast fillet and cod steak in mushroom sauce.

We had a wonderful dinner here last night. We had the fixed menu, and loved the pate de fois Gras, duck breast, and delightful dessert...floating "Alice", a light meringue in cream with caramel sauce. The service was excellent and helpful, since our French is so poor. We strongly recommend.

Located a few blocks north of the historic area, but still on the main road out of town. Seemed to be a favorite of locals. Expansive windows and large deck (which was not open the night we dined). Pretty ordinary menu. We both had chicken cassoulet, similar to a chick pot pie. It did not have the rich flavor that... More

A nice location "on" the road by elevated. The atmosphere was quiet and the service was friendly and efficient. The daily menu was great value, well cooked but the garnishes and vegies were the same for each disk, this was a little disappointing. Excellent value for money and the wines were very reasonably priced

I visited this restaurant as part of a large organised party, and we took over the whole of the downstairs part of the restaurant, whilst other diners ate upstairs. Unfortunately on a very hot night, I was one of those seated inside, with no ventilation or fans other than one open window, which I was not very near to. The... More

Set in a corner just outside the old city of Sarlat, this is a bustling restaurant serving a full range of foods from the Dordogne region Many different types of fois gras, both fresh livers sauteed with mushroom sauce as well as pate's served with a variety of accompaniments. Delicious duck served as sliced breast or confit. Like so many... More
