Loved this restaurant up on a hill with beautiful outdoor gardens. It's worth the walk uphill. The food was also excellent. Wonderful ambience.

We were seated outside, it was a lovely evening and the lighting was perfect. I had the Foie Gras and my guy had fish, both were beyond amazing and we aren't easy to please! We drank wine from the region and it paired nicely even with the fish.

Le Presidial earns special recognition for the worst and rudest service I have encountered in France in years. A long wait to get a menu. An even longer wait to place an order. When I pointed out that there was an insect in my daughter's water glass, the waiter refused to change it on the grounds that we were eating... More

We were here to celebrate my birthday and chose "the nicest restaurant in Sarlat" which was right around the corner from out place. As others have noted, the setting is beautiful. Unfortunately, while the food was quite good, I had the magret de canard with fried fois gras on top, the services was terrible. We waited almost 30 minutes for... More

don't get me wrong, the place is stil very beautiful. The food quality however came down compared to a year ago (and even more so compared to 2 years ago). The portions are way smaller and the quality of the ingredients (e.g. magret de canard) seems to have come down a lot. The staff was rather unfriendly. Also at the... More

An end of holiday meal on a lovely August evening was not all we expected. Despite our friends being regular patrons, the welcome & engagement from the staff was almost non- existent. Responses to questions in French about the menus received scant responses. Wine on expensive side. However, the food was worth waiting for- apart from the goats cheeses, which... More

Had a lovely evening here. Went for the 39 euro menu. Everything was delicious and the setting is superb. The only downside was that the waiter wasn't that interested in any conversation and was borderline rude. The other staff seemed pleasant enough.

Appalling. We had booked, arrived on time and were shown to our table. A waiter took our wine order but would not take our food order because that was the job of one woman who was also running front of house. We later realised that this was a ploy to commit us to staying because the food order woman simply... More

A place to avoid, they really do not merit a visit, they really despise the English the 19 euro menu is not available, an expensive night with very little on the plate. Very disappointed on every aspect.

Recommended by friends & our B&B hosts we had a delicious meal here in a picturesque garden setting. Friendly attentive service. A lovely way to spend an evening in Sarlat.
