We were in Sarlat for 6 nights and tried a good selection of restaurants. This one was on the edge of the tourist area and seemed to have more local French than tourists (we are Americans). It was a very nice meal, the service was very pleasant even with our bad French, and the prices were reasonable.

You won't be disappointed.

It´s difficult to find a really decent restaurant in this touristy town. Most establishments in the "old" town are just about OK...not brilliant food but not particularly expensive either. They produce the kind of meals that busy tourists generally love: steaks, omelettes, salads etc, with maybe a bit of foie gras on top for an extra few euros. However, if you care to walk up the main (modern) street up the hill away from the shops you will encounter L´ Octroi (means a sort of customs gatehouse in the 17th century). I have had many a good meal there, both outside in good weather or inside (two floors). It is generally quite busy, mainly catering for French people in the know, reflecting the good food and the fairly reasonable prices (not cheap, but not over the top for this quality). I doubt that English is spoken, but I may be wrong. Have a good look at the menu before ordering. They have excellent à la carte as well as a selection on the blackboard. The desserts are outstanding. Reckon on about 30-35 euros per person for a satisfying meal with a 'pichet' of house wine. It is probably closed between end of lunch and the beginning of dinner.

I was so impressed w/this place we ate here twice in a 5 night window. Very good w/a nice outside terrace.
Would encourage you to visit if you get the chance.

Make a reservation!
