My husband and I agreed, we both thought this restaurant was excellent. We opted for the menu at 28 euros. Madame, our hostess was very nice, smiling and quite talkative. I had the fish soup and loved it, the 'rouille' was hotter (spicy) than I have ever had, and quite nice actually. We followed with the monkfish: lotte aux girolles,... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant and had different opinions. She had a 3 course dinner (34E) which she said was excellent, and I had a 5 course dinner (45E). I would rate my meal as very good, but not the ratings that Michelin or Gault Millau gave this establishment. The interior of the restaurant was basic and... More

Run by a husband and wife team. She is the entire service staff so it can be a little bit of a wait and she is not a very engaging personality. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was really outstanding. We seemed to find ourselves speaking in a very low voice so as not to disturb the overwhelming silence... More

We were expecting big things, because when we initially looked up this place on trip advisor, it was highly rated. Their ratings have since slipped. Very uninspiring place, run by a husband and wife couple. The wife has zero personality. The three course meal took over two hours!! While our first courses were OK, my main item, a duck breast,...

We visited this restaurant on market day in Sarlat on July 18 which happened to be my birthday and we had the best meal of our two weeks in the Dordogne. Unbelievably we were the only two customers during the entire lunch opening! We both had the €22 three course menu, different starters but the same wonderful main course of... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. We were referred to this restaurant by the Bon Encontre Hotel staff and it delivered, both for the palate (so delicious), and also for the quiete of the place (great after a long day of sight seeing). We found out that the owner of the restaurant actually grow their own vegetables, chickens, etc,... More

This restaurant is definitely not part of the usual tourist circuit in Sarlat. It is quiet, & off the general track in the heart of the Medievil City. No outside dining. Lovely, sweet, slightly old-fashioned restaurant, with pale pink walls and a curtain separating the owner's living quarters & kitchen from the restaurant. We understood from the native persoon who...

Our meal at Restaurant Rossignol was the best meal we had on our French road trip, if not the best French meal I have ever had .. twice. I went there with friends 5 years ago and remembered it so fondly, I returned more recently with my husband and he loved it too. It is a quiet restaurant, tucked away... More

Knowing that we had a large dinner planned, we wanted a light meal after the Sarlat market and found this little restaurant that appeared to be popular with the locals, rather than tourists. We chose simple omelettes - cepes and girolles and a fresh salad. Crusty baguettes and a glass of wine, followed by a good coffee made it a... More

This is a real find. A small place (about 20 seats) and run by a husband and wife team. We were very lucky to get a "walk-in" table (arriving just before 8 pm), plenty of other people were turned away after that. Great value 3 course formula - 22 euro each - beautifully cooked food, all fresh and lovingly prepared.... More
