You wouldn't expect to find a really good restaurant on a side road outside of town whose only other distinguishing feature is that it leads from the railroad station. How much more surprising, then to find a truly extraordinary dining experience. It's well worth its...More

What can I say really, at 25€ pp for a Michelin started lunch you really cannot complain, 3 courses, wine and coffee plus a couple of amuse bûche thrown in. Lovely setting, excellent service and very friendly staff! May have to return for a menu...More

We really enjoy this family run restaurant. Few tables and very good products made an excellent lunch! Foie gras & pigeon choice were delicious! We will come back!

Although well-presented, the meals seemed to lack the balance of flavour that one might expect from a Michelin-rated restaurant.

My wife and I had a lovely dinner here recently. The food and service were excellent. Standouts for us were the langoustine entree, the pigeon, and the really unusual and quite amazing Macaron à l’olive noire for desert.

We came to Le Grand Bleu for dinner and were glad we did. The food was refreshing, which is what we needed after several days of eating a lot of duck and foie gras. We had an asparagus soup, cod, tuna, and some sort of...More

Fantastic food and wonderful staff. Possibly the best meal I've eaten and I really could not recommend it highly enough.

This is really a 6* TA place, deserving of a 2nd Michelin star! It is a small very attractive place, so reserve a while in advance. This was a 3rd visit, meriting a special stay in Sarlat specifically to dine there en route to the...More
