After 3 attempts, we eventually made it for supper by coming early. This small Restaurant by the Cathedral specialises in all types of smoked ham. It is fresly sliced straight off the bone and served on a platter with an assortment of greens and potatoes. The salads are also to die for. The atmosphere is intimate and the service friendly and efficient.

By comparison, other places that we tried in Sarlat were disappointing because they seemed to concentrate on quantity instead of quality.

Le Vieux Gaulois is well worth the effort to get a table!

This is a warm and friendly place serving, among other choices, various types of ham and potatoes. Of course there are many other choices.
Beatrice speaks perfect English so the menu is explained, if you need help.
The one drawback was that there were several Americans there on our evening. We wanted a little more of a French experience but it was still a fun choice.
We heard a few patrons mention how much they enjoyed the Fondue.

The room is warm & inviting,
hams hanging from the ceiling.
.
The server (Beatrice) is welcoming, friendly and fun. So efficient, she really knows how to work a room.

The food is outstanding---and they don't serve duck, yeah!

We liked it so much we returned again in a few nights.

Tartiflette---yummmm!
Potatoes, onions, lardons(pork), and reblochon cheese---fantastic! Real comfort food.

All of the meat is sliced to order right in front of you. Each dish comes with a fresh salad. The house wine is good, the prices reasonable. IMO, the best place we ate in Sarlat.

Nice ambience and unique concept with thinly sliced hams, either on/with salads, or with hot potatoes and cheese fondue. LOTS of different ham, from wild boar to smoked and aged delicious slices. Friendly staff. Menu in French, Dutch, and English available.
