When we arrived, tired after a very long trip, to the Bistro recommended by our Garmin GPS, the place was empty, and so we sat at a table not realizing that, really, one should have a reservation . . . because within a half-hour, the restaurant was full of customers, most eating the same menu we ordered, a very economical...

Well worth a visit to this restaurant. Very varied menu and not too expensive. Didn't have to wait for our food even though it was freshly cooked.

On a list of six restaurants recommenced by the proprietor of our vacation rental we chose Bistro de L'Octroi because it was open on Sunday. Four of us dined, not expecting anything special. We also were not enthused due to its location just outside the old city. But we were pleasantly surprised. We dined well, with each appetizer worth sharing... More

We have had several meals here - lunch, dinner and a large lunch we hosted for friends and their children. We have enjoyed the food, wine and the service - though our French friends were disturbed that bread and drinks were not served quickly enough. The food is well prepared, beautifully served and a very good value. We will have... More

The restaurant came highly recommended by the local rental agency ! They said it was the best in Sarlat so understandably it had much to live up to ! The waiter didn't have us sample his recommended bottle before serving and when I picked up some really odd flavours and at our request he did taste it himself and exchanged... More

Had some delicious fresh fish and vegetables. Just what we wanted on a warm summer night. Service was friendly. Arrived without a reservation but they seated us happily.

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
