Basically picked the restaurant as a lunch spot for the advertised burger Sarladaise which was a creative twist. Nothing fancy, but not bad either. The sidedish of potatoes in a local fashion (most likely duck or goose fat and garlic) was really nice. My son had the vegetarian menu which was excellent. My daughter ordered the steak without sauce, but... More

My friend and I have just arrived in Sarlat for a 5 day stay. This is our first night and after 7 hours of travelling by bus and train we walked into the old city looking for a meal. We arrived at the restaurant and spoke to the delightful Shirley who encouraged us to try the fresh vegetable soup even... More

Going here was a big mistake. We weren't able to have the set menu so chose from the main courses. The portions were small,of poor quality and overpriced. They are clearly taking advantage of people eating here being tourists. Should have checked tripadvisor before eating here. To be avoided .

My family and I dined in this restaurant last week and I must say it was not a nice experience. The waiter was on the busy street touting for business which should have alerted me as to the quality on this restaurant. We were shown to our table and presented our menus. When we ordered our food the waiter suggested... More

I indulged in 2 courses the cassoulet maison and the gateaux de Noix (a must have if you're there) the food was totally delicious and we were really satisfied with what we ate. The service wasn't the smoothest (bit of confusion over a lost starter) but the helpful staff rectified it quickly and were up for a bit of banter.... More

We went to La Cour des Poetes for dinner and were really disappointed by both food and service. The confit was way overcooked, and the waitress refused to change our cutlery because that meant additional dish washing for them... Would not recommend at all

Walked into the restaurant to ask for a table for 6 for lunch and were greeted by an irate member of staff whose only concern was we had walked on a very small portion of floor that was still slightly damp and we had left one footprint on a dry section of floor. No interest in meeting our request for... More

Im used to live within the area for years. Im french and know my food and good restaurants. The only good thing about this restaurant is the location. Now... the waitress that served us couldnt crack a smile and looked like she'd be partying the night before. She looked so miserable. The food wasnt great. Had the 14.95euros menu, foie... More

Set back a little from the main square in nice secluded area. This is nice setting for lunch. The food was equally as good and we founders service excellent as well.
