“Perfect for a unique and delicious lunch in Sarlat”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Great charcuterie that serves plates of superb cold meats and cheeses. We had a salad and a fondue plate to share - these were both large and had a great variety of meats. The goats cheese wrapped in bresola was probably the best. It was a crowded little place so get there early - we are glad we sat inside as it was all a bit crowded on the street outside - and we got to soak up the great atmosphere, watching as the meat was sliced and the plates of food created. Really good value and good service too. As another review has poorly highlighted, don't expect anything other than charcuterie platters here - but as long as you go knowing that is what is on offer this is highly recommended!

“Feel welcome with simple food and a great ambiance,”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Just one of those places where the ambiance is combined with simple and nicely priced food.
Plates consisting of Jambon, charcuterie and melted cheese / potato.
Friendly and very attentive service, good for visiting with childeren.

“Beware of the strange menu limited to cold meat and a boiled potato”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

On our first night in Sarlat we decided to go to this restaurant as we stayed just round the corner from it and it had good reviews on TA.

We found the menu and food on offer to be very strange.

Basically, the food on offer is cold slices of ham with one boiled potato and a pot of melted cheese. That's it. The only variation is basically the strength of cheese you can choose.

The children's menu for my 10 year old daughter was a plate of cold sliced parma ham. With nothing. Very odd.
They also had a few salads on offer, which included the same cold slices of parma ham.

Unless you like cold meat I would not recommend this restaurant.
