We, a family of 5, went expecting to sample a typical Perigord menu instead ended cutting our evening short because of the horrible treatment by the manager when pointed out that my son's foie gras had a strand of fine, blonde hair on top. As we all have thick and dark black hair it clearly wasn't 'planted' by us in... More

I visited this restaurant with my girlfriend passing through, noticing all that stickers on the entrance; Michelin, TripAdvisor, GM... We wanted to try typical Périgord cusine and this place seemed just right. Waitress was very kind, trying hard to speak English, which was actually really bad. In a place like this I would expect at least menu in english language.... More

Staff friendly and speak english. Offers a vegetarian menu - though that is not strictly correct. Ravioli and omelettes seem to be the options. Some with parmesan - not vegetarian. Also served with sarladaise potatoes - again not vegetarian as made with goose fat. The vegetable tart was only lukewarm. Has been better on previous visits. Wine list only shows... More

Overall a very nice restaurant (with current and former awards from Trip Advisor and others posted in the window). We both had the chef's recommendation shown on a chalk board outside - about 17 Euro for an appetizer, beef tournedos with our choice of one of three sauces, and dessert. We added a very nice local half bottle of wine... More

We stayed in an apartment in Sarlat for 5 nights last October. We chose to eat at L'Instant Delice due to recommendations from members of the forums and liked it enough to return a second time during our short trip. It's a small place with accommodating staff. Our first night we didn't have a reservation but were seated quickly. The... More

We liked this place and went here twice during our stay in Sarlat (lunch and dinner). I had the cassoulet and the Mushroom Raviolis. Both were delicious and lovely. Great service and lovely waiter. Wine is very good and the ambiance is vibrant and comfortable.

Sarlat is reputed to have 44 restaurants. Regrettably, although the quality of many of those restaurants is high, the vast majority of them seem to have almost identical menus, offering foie gras, confit of duck, goose gizzards (gesiers) and Perigord ham. Once you've tried these.....or if you don't fancy those, there is little else on offer seemingly. L'Instant Delice offers... More

I had goose with vegetables, in wine, but it was a bad choice because it seems they have warmed up the food just before they served it; outside it was hot, but inside it was cold. I hope it was cooked that day, not few days ago... Disappointing, wouldn't recommend.

The restaurant has several set menu's featuring local and regional produce. The portions were of a good size and the meals very tasty. Service was excellent with our waiter speaking good English.
