Elegant meal

In an old spacious mansion in Sarlat,this restaurant allies good food and pleasant surroundings. Service is friendly and efficient. Regional dishes dominate the reasonably priced menus. Good wine list. Excessive use of sauces tend to overwhelm the taste of the food however.

Came here on a Thursday evening. We hadn't booked, and I think we were lucky to get a table. We ordered off the €39 fixed price menu, and the food was superb. After a delightful couple of amuse bouches, we had a John Dory ravioli and king prawn with oriental salad. Both were superb. For mains, I had a veal... More

For us a memorable meal is not only about good quality food but also service and ambiance. Le Presidial fared well on all three. Set back from the main tourist area this tastefully converted mansion has lovely gardens and outside eating areas. The menu draws predominantly on regional produce and there is a good wine list. Service is excellent and... More

The service was beautiful. The owner and his staff were warm, welcoming, treated us as dear friends. The food; canard confit for me, and coq au vin for the rest. Everyone left supremely satisfied

We ate here at the beginning of the month with our friends David & Wendy from 'Le Jardin' to celebrate my birthday. The service and food was exceptional and matches without doubt the top restaurants in Sarlat.. The hosts and owners make you feel very welcome from the moment you arrive, the décor is beautiful and the food excellent. Now... More

We found Le Preisdial by accident on a rainy Sunday morning--my husband went to mass while my friends and I explored Sarlat. At the end of a small street near the Lantern of the Dead behind the Cathedra, we saw beautiful garden with lilacs and wisteria, just in bloom. The maitre d' had a place for us at 1 PM,... More

Forget all the tourist restaurants in Sarlat, they are poor value for money and serve very average food. Le Presidial prices are actually better than the tourist traps, the wine selection is greater, and cheaper with better quality wines, and the meals are without doubt the finest we ate in Sarlat during our 4 night stay! It deserves to be... More
