Crispy confit de canard

we opted to take the €17.90 menu which included a salad with 3 specialties of the region, confit de canard. Desserts chosen (also included in price) were chocolate cake with soft center and creme brûlée. Loved the foie gras served with salad with a kind of jam with nuts on the side. The confit de... read more

Looking at other reviews on this restaurant there seems to be a divide between those who had a good experience and those who didn't. Sadly we fell into the latter category. The actual restaurant seems to be in two settings, the main attached to the kitchen and a sort of annexe on the other side of the passage. We were... More

Everyone was happy with their meal. The duck confit was amazing. The ravioli was also very good. Some excellent non regional wines. Service was very friendly. Nice atmosphere and lovely old stairway leading upstairs to toilets.

Our first night in Sarlat, and it was great to have a lovely meal at this restaurant after a long train trip. The service was very good and the waitress very helpful with our very bad French.

I strongly recommend to avoid this place. We where seated and asked to move shortly to accommodate a table for 6 which was not a problem but service started to crumble when we had to ask for water a couple of times and cutlery. Starters was served without cutlery same for the main course. They overcooked my pan fried foie... More

At our first night we went to the old city of sarlat for dinner. We took place at the terrace, cause of the sun and the small streets, the walls gave their warmth at night and it was to sit here and watch people searching for a place to eat. Great menu, great value, friendly service. Would recommend it.

After several identikit style restaurants in the area, we chose this as it had a vegetarian menu and some interesting options. The set menu was really good value - three courses for €17.90 if I recall correctly. Carnivores amongst us had some good fois gras and we finished with some very strong creme brûlée (a favourite of mine as I've... More

We had a wonderful time, the lady who served us was very friendly, we tried to order in French (which did not go very well) but she understood and spoke English :) the salmon, beef and duck were very good, and the veggie ravioli was exquisite! Good service! All dishes with local products which was very nice. We would definitely... More
