Well worth seeking out

It's hard to put your finger on how a restaurant gets its service and layout just right but Le Presidial does just that. Refined without being stiff, reasonably spaced but intimate enough to have a friendly buzz, and service with a smile and warmth. Not quite an "Excellent" rating, as the food... read more

We ate here twice during our recent holiday. The gardens are stunning. The food is beautifully presented & plenty of choice. The staff are friendly & professional. We were lucky to get a table without booking as the queues were being turned away so I'd recommend you book!

Not quite an "Excellent" rating, as the food, whilst perfectly competent, lacked the wow factor.

We came here for the last night of our holiday, having spotted it earlier in the week. We ate under the trees in the courtyard of this charming 16c stone building in the medieval centre of Sarlat. It has had a new team and a new menu since January this year . They pride themselves on fresh local ingredients .... More

Our apartment owner recommended this restaurant. It was nice sitting in the garden - of course the great June weather didn't hurt. Food was very high quality also. I've had slow-cooked lamb and my husband had veal - both dishes were perfect. The lamb was very rich and tender. Unfortunately we've decided to order a menu with 4 courses including... More

5 friends & family ate dinner here late June 2015 - with a reservation (recommended). There was a bit of a climb on hilly back streets to get there, but there were some signs closer to the restaurant. Appetizer - salmon covered with cabbage was very good. I ordered duck - breast I believe, which I didn't like at all.... More

Nestled in the beautiful town of sarlat this restaurant really has it all. Lovely seating area outside and grand beautifully decorated rooms inside. We had the €29 and 39 menu which you couldn't fault. Service and staff were attentive without being too much, perfect. Recommend the fish ravioli, beef main course and profiteroles for dessert. Don't miss out - one... More

Great choice for our last meal. Feels much finer quality than the more touristy restaurants in town and only slightly more money if you eat from a "menu". Foie gras was best we'd had and the lamb was really good. Would have liked a proper portion of veg but i'm nit picking. Service was prompt and friendly. There were lots... More

This is a superb place, even if our experience was average. The waiter just "forgot" us as we were in the back of the garedn and by the time, the food arrived it was barely warm. Would had it been hot, it would have been very good, but unfortunately, this was not a good experience. They later came and apologized,... More
