A bit on the slow side

We promised ourselves something a bit special, and we certainly got it; the food was excellent, but the service was intolerably slow...30 minutes from ordering to receiving first course is unacceptable...and at the end of the meal, I had to ask three times for the bill, by which time my wife had... read more

Had a superb lunch here. Wonderful friendly welcome to an already busy place. Wonderful 3 course leisurely lunch, smoked salmon starters followed by lamb cooked for 7 hours for my husband whilst I had cod with a beautiful sauce. Desserts were delicious as was the wine. Would definitely go again and would 100% recommend it.

What a wonderful location for a meal - in a garden surrounded by historic sites. The wait staff were good ( a bit slow but the restaurant was all full). The food was very good. Wine list was good. You need to have a reservation.

Our experience of Le Presidial was very disappointing. We walked past the restaurant on a Monday (when it was closed) and felt it looked classy with a lovely outdoor dining area, so we booked by phone the next day. Our visit started off badly as despite spelling our name the reservation was in a name barely close. This resolved we... More

Make sure you book as Le Presidial fills up very quickly, because it serves fantastic regional French food. There is no tourist menus here, like the rest of Sarlat. This restaurant offers you impeccable service in a great environment. The staff are fantastic, making aperitif, food and wine recommendations, they could not do enough for our group of 6 and...

The 10 of us were early and greeted warmly even though the staff was still eating. The outdoor dining area is covered with cloth sails and is a lovely place to sit while viewing the outside of the ancient courthouse which is now the interior of the restaurant. Considering the quality of the food, the 19Euro dinner is exceptional. Everyone... More

My wife and I spent three nights in Sarlat this past May and Le Presidial was our third night's dinner (Chez Le Gaulois was our first, L'Adresse the second). I think we would both agree that we saved the best for last. The restaurant is nestled within the Medieval section of Sarlat and only a short walk from our hotel... More
