Fantastic menu with a bit of everything from the area. The grilled foei gras was absolutely fabulous.

We dined there on the strength of these reviews. The food was indeed excellent, and a good value. But? One review mentioned the slow service. Well, it is fine if the service is elegantly slow; but here it was ludicrously inattentive, and often unpleasantly clumsy.

Right across the street from the Ibis Hotel. Was recommended by the lady at the hotel. We had the fixed menu and glass of house wine, both were excellent we had the fish for my wife and I had beef. In the true French tradition the meal took about two hours, but you can not be in a hurry eating in France unless you do fast food. Waiter was vale helpful with some translations so we could enjoy to upmost.

Surprised and delighted to see such a busy bustling restaurant, close to the centre of Sarlat, serving excellent, wholesome, well presented plates of food. Friendly service, but was busier than we expected so, wise to book.
Menu is varied and the spare ribs chosen by my husband were beautifully cooked with a delicious sauce, as was my pavé of salmon. Starters showed originality- my Nems with spicy duck alongside sesame grilled prawns with side salad was superb. Wine List has plenty choice and we managed to find our favourite Sancerre from Crochet- brought back happy memories of holidays long ago.
What a change from some of the tourist traps in town! A slice of real French lunchtime cooking at reasonable prices. We shall return soon.

Had the most amazing dinner at this restaurant based on reviews and we were not disappointed. We had the 3 course set menu for €20 and it was exceptionally tasty food and great value. Best meal we have had on our travels in France to date.
