Ate inside where there is little atmosphere, would recommend eating outside if weather allows. Had some very good dishes, but service, though friendly, was lacking in attentiveness.

After a few days in Sarlat we craved a little more variety in our diet and we visited Le Bistrot. Eight pm and the restaurant was full and there was a great atmosphere about the place. We chose an omelet and a burger and both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Good wine selection and excellent friendly service. We plan to return... More

We came here as two couples for dinner in April. we had a warm welcome and the staff were very nice all night. I had a cod main course which was excellent. It was good value for money.

There are many restaurants in Sarlat all serving very similar meals (duck or foie gras!). This restaurant looked to have a more varied menu so we gave in a try and were not disappointed. We both chose one of the 'formulae' of which there are several to choose from. A la carte is also an option if desired. The entrees... More

We found this to be one of the better valued options in Sarlat. Food was good, not fantastic, but good bistro food that left you felling satisfied and had good flavors without being pretentious. Staff were friendly and the atmosphere is great.

On the whole we have found restaurant quality to be relatively poor in the Dordogne (in fairness we are used to the amazing choice of very high quality restaurants in Southern Spain) but we really enjoyed our lunch at Le Bistrot. We had fish tartare and the Perigord pork which were both very tasty and good value. The staff were... More

This is one of the many not so good restaurants in Sarlat. Average food, uninterested staff. You can do better.

This is Rick Steves recommendation and it was awful. The got our order mixed up and my entree was served about the time my wife's was finished. My duck was way under cooked and I think it was still quacking. I know it is supposed to be on the rare side but mine was almost raw. Had to ask for... More

We had lunch here twice. The food is good and the prices are fair but the real stand out is the service! Le Bistrot has the nicest most helpful servers in Sarlat. We arrived very late on a rainy day after being turned away from two other restaurants and were warmly welcomed here. We were the last two people in... More

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
