On the cathedral square, Le Bistrot offers a great menu, excellent staff, and a great location. There's no lack of duck in Sarlat, and Le Bistrot has it, but they have a number of other dishes that can be a welcome break from the unrelenting tourist-oriented fare.

Deliberated over the many options for an evening meal we settled on Le Bistrot as it has a great location and was really busy (at 7.30pm). They had a menu in English and also one for kids (under 10). My wife and myself chose the Gourmet set menu (24euro) which included 3 courses. I had the salmon tartare for starter,... More

On the day we arrived in Sarlat we did not want to walk far for dinner. We stumbled upon this place and sat inside away from the crowds. Much to our surprise with had a very nice dinner with very good wine. The servers were very helpful in interpreting the menu. Not far from the main square in front of... More

This restaurant is our favourite in Sarlat. The town itself is worth a visit and when you get hungry, Le Bistrot is the place. The staff was very attentive and the food was really first class. We will be back!

We had dinner here and the food was excellent! The service is attentive without being overbearing. Great menu and friendly staff right in the plaza next to the cathedral.

A lovely location opposite a church in Sarlat close to the main square. The location is not as busy as the main square but still gives lots of people watching opportunities. Services was very good. The staff were welcoming and all spoke good English. The tomatoe and mozzarella starter was the best I have ever hand. The entire family were... More

This has very good local cuisine. The selection is very nice too. It appeared to all be local ingredients & dishes, except the hamburgers. It sits just outside of the cathedral on a nice square. Buskers & performers were milling around it doing there thing, so nice entertainment too. The fish was excellent as was the foie gras. I would... More

After two very good traditional French dinners, and the best almond croissant and coffee I've ever had at a wonderful cafe on main street in Sarlat, we went to this bistro on our last night on recommendation by a local (who may have an interest in the place) in this interesting, if self-consciously tourist town. We both ordered the bistro... More
