We had a lovely meal for 6 while on holiday - the set lunch time menu was good value and very tasty. Lots of atmosphere and helpful staff. Try it!

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

There are so many restaurants in Sarlat that we chose largely on the basis of where one of our party could have a dinner salad and where all three of us could avoid anything with duck or goose. Here the salad was found and the rest of us enjoyed the 'suggestion of the day' which was beef with mushrooms, a... More

Family owned and run restaurant. Great ambiance, very friendly and helpful staff. The food and the service is consistently good, I have eaten here on many occasions and have never yet been disappointed. This restaurant is very popular with both tourists and locals alike so it's a good idea to make a reservation, especially at the weekends. Excellent value for... More

We do our best to be as polite a possible when traveling and I have never left a bad review for a restaurant in France but this one requires it. The greeter and wait staff were very rude. Possibly because we were speaking English but possibly that's just the way they were. We ended up walking out before eating which... More

We havé taken your comment into account. However, we are very surprises by it and are wondering if you have maybe got the address wrong..... In fact, all our staff speaks english and one is even of british origin so we have nothing against english speaking clients! We have also gone to the extent of translating our menus in english...
