Set in one of Sarlat's most outstanding buildings, brimming with history this gorgeous, well presented restaurant is simply a must do. There's cannon references as this grand building was once the protector of the village. The restuarant offers a range of traditional to more modern dishes and I've enjoyed and can recommend both. If you're around on a Thursday in... More

Last night my husband and I had dinner here for the second time, it was great both times. The setting is gorgeous, with that big stone fireplace in the main room, it hold crates of wine now, so non-working fireplace. Big chain mail chandeliers, the service is good and the menus offered are wonderful with different prices to choose from... More

Staying around the corner on a sunday night in the winter there was few choices of places to eat and we were extremely lucky to find La Couleuvrine. The setting was exceptional and suits the setting of Sarlat la Caneda with incredible stonework and wine display in a formerly large open fireplace. The service was great and the staff were... More

Not sure what the negative reviews are about. We really liked the space - cozy, softly lit stone room in a nook of the medieval hotel with mostly locals. My companion felt this was her best duck of the trip while my beef (with delicious truffle sauce) was perfectly prepared to my specification and just lovely. Service professional and friendly....

We had lunch here after a fun morning of shopping in the village. The delicious lunch topped off a delightful day. Pretty setting - we sat outside. Good service. The hotel looks welcoming. One of the nicest days we spent on our recent trip.

Unfortunately our stay got off to a bad start. We reserved in the spring for summer time and had to reserve separate reservations for each night (we tried to extend our existing reservation, but there was a fee to change even though we were adding to it, so we booked a separate reservation). We emailed the hotel right away to... More

We were staying here and the meals were included in our bike tour package, so you're always a little uneasy that it may not be as good as what you'd find at a stand alone restaurant. But we were pleasantly surprised by both good food and service. I had the Confit du Canard (roast leg of duck), which you have... More

The steak tartar served was fresh and well seasoned, the fish dish was a little disappointing, it was frozen fish not fresh. If you want just a quick dish of the day then this is a suitable place.

Attractive architecture but if your room overlooks the front entrance be prepared for the noise of the mechanical road sweepers at 5.30am and general traffic at other odd times through the night. Also the room is very brightly lit by the street lights .
