“Delightful susrprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

After tiring of the statutory duck etc of the region we sought out fish.
This resteraunt delighted us with its menu, presentation fair prices and quality of food.
The understated quality was topped off by the symphony of deserts.
A strong recommendation to anyone seeking above average dining.

“Sophisticated twist on the local cuisine.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

This restaurant is just outside the town centre, which means you can actually park nearby - something of a bonus in Sarlat! This is a large and very well presented restaurant with a large outside terrace which was very popular - we wish we had booked, however the conservatory area was almost as nice. This is more than a tourist restaurant and seemed very popular with the locals. Food was very good and a fine dining twist on the local Perigord fare, very well presented. Would recommend.

“A great way to end a trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

On our last night in Sarlat(a Sunday) the receptionist at IBIS found this restaurant open(most others were closed). We had the foie gras with Sarladis potatoes, and it was delightful, as wa the wine suggested by the staff. The quality was excellent, as was the service. It was a wonderful meal and we would recommend the restaurant very highly.

“Local cuisine shines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

A local recommended this restaurant, which is located close to the center of town. The place was packed with tourists and locals alike on a Monday evening. Local cuisine is the star. No pretentiousness here. Everything was well-prepared and presented from entree to dessert. Excellent wine selection. Staff members were attentive and made good recommendations.
