Friendly staff gave us a table in this nearly fully reserved restaurant. Ordered the 18e menu and a bottle of wine which were both very good. Nice atmosphere, very cozy, best place we had dinner in Sarlat. Recommended!

Location is perfect in the heart of Sarlat, in a stony boulevard opposite an ancient church. Sit outside if you want that ambience – we had a cellist busking in the boulevard and it was magical.

We ate here every night for 3 nights in a row because it was so good, and the other restaurants looked more tacky and had tourist menus.

Le bistrot does real French food from the region, without ripping you off. Having tried most of the menu, I have one simple strong recommendation – just choose the Menu of the day – this is a 3 course meal featuring the best produce in season for only 18 Euros! The plate servings are large – and I am a big eater. Also, I would not normally order a ‘menu of the day’ package as it sounds too much like a tourist option, however, in this place it is local, authentic and honest to goodness great food.

The downside? Service is slow – but still friendly. We went in peak season so they were packed, but still good with the customers – and the food, price and location makes it still the best place in town!

You'd be forgiven for thinking this is just another tourist trap, situated in such a central part of the historic town. But this was far from our experience. We arrived relatively late for French lunchtime (13:45) but were not rushed at all, and had an excellent - if fairly standard - meal. Steak washed down with vin rouge. The steak was substantial, tender and cooked to perfection. I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Sarlat.

My husband had a big salad with perfectly cooked bacon (not limp the way we usually get it in France and Italy), potatoes and cheese. The potatoes in the salad were the best I've ever tasted. He also had a prawn dish with pesto as his main. I had the prix fixe which I think was foie gras, salmon, and walnut cake. Everything tasty. Much better than the higher-rated Instant Delice which left us disappointed.

Sitting in the patio, we were able to enjoy the music of the performers in the square. The food was delicious and the prices reasonable.
