We had dinner at this restaurant on our recent visit to Sarlat. I chose entrecote steak and my husband chose duck. My steak was excellent - very tender and medium/well done as ordered. My husband enjoyed the duck, but the portion was far too large. My steak came with French fries, which were very greasy and rather cold and my... More

I don't think they pretend to be anything other than a "reliable Food supplier" , with a little class. That's what they provide. Good, quick , friendly service , right in the middle of town. Would go back any time I was in town.

We spent 3 days in Sarlat-la-Caneda this Easter. Everyday looking for a place to have dinner, we passed through the restaurant Le Bistrot, due to an excellent location in front of the Cathedral. We thought it was a great place to eat as there were plenty of people every night. So one day we tried. It seemed to be an... More

I went to La Bistrot on the evening of its reopening. The place looks great and has a great atmosphere however the food, service and pricing were all appalling. First of all, the service staff were un-apologetically incompetent. Our starters took almost an hour to arrive and when they did, only two of the four we had ordered were served... More

We had a wonderful dinner here in September. We started with foie gras (of course). My husband had duck confit and I had Salmon with a Citrus Sauce. It was all wonderful. We ate outside and enjoyed a cellist who played in front of the restaurant. Unfortunately, the evening was tainted by the service. Our meal took nearly three hours... More

What amazing food, drinks might be more expensive than other restaurants but who cares with food like this. I chose from the 18.90€ menu: starter, main and dessert were all delicious and showcased the local ingredients. My husband was tempted by the Salade Biistrot, an unusual choice for him but this was no ordinary salad and is certainly not one... More

Nice room with an inviting outside eating area and the restaurant itself is bang opposite the church which was particularly nice as there was a cellist playing. Got there at 7.30 and 2 courses took 2 hours. The food itself was fine, not exceptional but perfectly acceptable although the portion size of the 'trois fromages' was pretty miserable. The restaurant... More

Situated in the Medieval heart of Sarlat, Le Bistrot is not your average tourist restaurant. Yes it has the obligatory foie gras and canard on the menu, but that's where the comparisons end. The service is personal. The ambience is decidedly French. And the food is lovingly prepared and presented. The steak was cooked to perfection - even though we... More

Delicious food, duck, salmon, potatoes baked in duck grease. Didn't try the Gras as I'm against it. But it certainly is not a family restaurant. Go here with your partner, dine, drink wine and chat to experience this best. We took the little one (9 months) and then it just took too long.
