Good restaurant

We were in town on a Sunday night and not much seemed to be open, not sure why. Good food, good service, and it was nice to eat al fresco. I had the leg of lamb with a fig sauce, very tasty, a special that night.

We stopped here for lunch. We sat just inside but at the window, which was great as we could both look out. The service was ok but not overly friendly. The food was good - the steak was cooked well and the beetroot and goats cheese salad was delicious. The reason for a 3 star rating is that there is... More

We had a copy of a well known guide book and was hoping that it will lead us to a good last meal in the Dordogne area. Having trekked around for 20 mins looking at the recommended places, we decided that there were not suitable. Just when we were about to collapse in despair, we stumbled upon Le Bistro. The... More

We stopped in for dinner this evening. One server was happy enough to entice us with some friendly banter. Once we were seated we were virtually ignored. No smiles, no helpful suggestions, just bored servers annoyed to be asked to do their job. We have little desire to go out to restaurants now. It is too much work for the... More

Located in the heart of Sarlat, this restaurant offers great regional food. I had the 3 course regional produce meal, and was very happy. Especially the foie gras starter was great. Good local wine list to support the excellent food.

Turned up 9 pm on a Saturday and waited a few mins for a table, lovely wait staff Who were happy to explain the specials, and then explain them again due to my poor French. I had a trout in a buerre noisette, hubby had sirloin steak with a rocquerfort sauce. We also ordered some cahors wine, which was incredibly... More

We visited whist on holiday in the Sarlat area and after passing it on a couple of days when it was packed to the rafters so we thought it was worth a try. Service was slow throughout possibly because we sat inside and the waiting staff were focused on the outside tables. Starters was OK but our mains were very... More

This excellent restaurant is in the centre of the ancient part of Sarlat opposite the church. It has lovely views in all directions and you have the option to sit inside or outside, we chose outside. Service was excellent. I had a gourmet burger with foie gras on the top. The burger which was home made was cooked just how... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the casual ambiance and friendly service. Our foie gras appetizer was stunning and a real treat followed by fresh duck breast. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her hamburger and salad. The local Pecharment red wine was reasonably priced and delicious.

There is absolutely nothing bad that I can say about our meals here or about the service. We consider this to be the best value for the money and of superior quality.
