We turned up Easter Monday without a reservation and were seated straight away. There was the choice of inside/out, as the sun was shining we opted for outside. There was a guy busking outside the cathedral which provided the musical entertainment (he was good, managing to play at least 6 instruments). The staff were friendly, spoke excellent English. Food was... More

We had dinner here the first night of a four-night stay. We arrived without a reservation, and were greeted graciously and quickly sat down - we sat outside, and the heaters were welcome despite the fact it was quite warm for April! This is a largely tourist-focussed restaurant, with many of the usual menu choices available - but it's a... More

The menu has all the typical Perigourdine dishes but plenty of alternatives so it sets itself apart from the majority of restaurants in Sarlat. Ingredients, cooking and presentation are all very good. The service is absolutely excellent: we sat outside and as the sun began to scorch us we were offered hats. Exactly what was needed. The staff speak excellent... More

We looked on TA before going into Sarlat for Saturday's market. Of the short list that we made this looked the most appealing in terms of location and menu's. Service was friendly, helpful and efficient and the restaurant was quickly full with a mixture of both locals and visitors The Foie Gras followed by duck was very tasty and the... More

We took lunch here, opting for the three course menu de jour. My partner and I both sampled the regional speciality, foie gras, he opted for salmon for his main course, while I stuck with duck with sarladaise potatoes. Our meal was rounded off with walnut cake and coffee. Service could have been a tad quicker, but we were not... More

On our first night in Sarlat we stopped in Le Bistrot for dinner and it was just the right choice.The atmosphere was small town France and the food was excellent French. Our server was very pleasant and thankfully spoke fluent English, clearly explaining all of our choices. I, as I think is expected in the Dordogne, ordered Duck (breast) on... More

We ate dinner here twice on our recent visit. We willingly took seats outside next to heaters and used the blankets provided. Le Bistrot has a good selection of local wines, including half bottles. The food is solid, and the mashed potatoes are particularly good. If you're in Sarlat off-season and/or on a Sunday or Monday, this a good choice.

Burger was delicious and the beer was welcome. The omelette looked good. Coffees served with a chocolate and service efficient with a smile. Outside seating opposite the cathedral. Watch the world go by.

An affordable bistro, high quality of food and offers a variety of both French cuisine and burgers. My husband had the beef steak with a wonderful mushroom sauce and I had a beautiful salmon. Very pleasant to sit outside viewing the magical scenery of downtown old Sarlat. The place offers heaters and blankets.
