Every time we visit Sarlat-la-Caneda we go to this Bistro. We have always had an excellent meal. There is a varied menu with a specials board. The staff speak excellent English led by Christophe. We look forward to returning.

We visited here one night last week after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The restaurant has a modern feel both inside and out and has a lovely vibe. The service from the initial greeting to the end if the meal...More

Celebrating a 'significant' birthday with family and friends (12 in all, plus dog) was a great pleasure at Bistro de l'Octroi. We had a very early booking on a Saturday and were the first ones there, but the place soon filled up and the atmosphere...More
