We've eaten here twice and enjoyed both visits. On our most recent visit, I had the kidneys, which I found delicious. My wife had a chicken dish that she enjoyed a great deal. The service is very good and the outdoor dining area is a great space. Avoid the flottane dessert, not because it is bad here, but because it... More

Reasonably priced restaurant given location in central Sarlat. Geared towards local specialities such as foie gras, duck, goose. It is possible to have 2 courses for approx €23 for dinner. Food was ok. A bottle of Champagne and two courses for 2 people was €84.

We have been for diner with my parents. The staff is good, the quality and taste of food are awesome and very tasty. Quantity a bit small but you go there for the quality not for the quantity.

We went to the Bistro on a Saturday afternoon after the weekly market in Sarlat. We choose to have the 2 course menu for 14 euro (could be upgraded to 3 course for 18), which included a starter, main course, a glass of wine and a coffee. The menu is set-up so that you get whatever is being served on... More

This is located at the top end of town next to a couple of hotels. The bistro has a very open outlook with enclosed terraces, providing a lovely ambiance for dining. My first thoughts on the menu items were that I would still be hungry at the end of the meal. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the taste,... More

While staying in a local B & B we made friends with another couple and decided to eat somewhere nice that evening. We chose Le bistro de l'Octroi and were not disappointed. I had a 3 course meal with the goose (house speciality) as my main course and everything was spot on, including personal service. Even the prices were good.... More

Nevertheless the accompanient was the same whatever you order, would have been nice to... More

We went for a meal with friends when we were staying in the area. By far the best meal we had in Sarlat. We went in the evening and the food was excellent.
