Really nice to dine in this familiar place. At our ease with our kids who could also choose from the menu. A place to recommend.

La Petite Borie was another "find" for our small group of friends. We were welcomed by the proprietor and sested upstairs in a quaint building, pleasant surroundings. Most of the group enjoyed the foie gras--so smooth and creamy. The Salardaise potatoes served here with my omelet were my favorite side dish. Friends enjoyed the cassoulet, and the duck--"really good!". Desserts... More

The restaurants of Sarlat naturally feature many of the same choices, all focusing on duck and goose. It becomes easy to compare entrees, plats, and deserts among restaurants. We just returned from La Petite Borie where they create some of the best duck confit, cassoulet, and creme brûlée in town. It is easy to see why it is difficult to... More

One of the best food experiences in our 2.5month stay through Europe (and we have eaten at some great places). Warm, friendly service. Simple, wholesome and delicious meals. Lovely atmosphere and excellent menu choices (although a few more fresh salad options would be great). Helpful staff with good knowledge of English language. We were extremely impressed with the children's menu.... More

Out of the multitude of restaurants available on Saturday market day, we chose this one from the variety available on the menu. It's hard not to have foie gras in Sarlat, but finding it prepared as you want it might be a challenge. We found nice salads, a very nice regional main course of roasted pork with sauce perigourdine accompanied... More

Arrived early and glad we did, as it filled up shortly afterwards! Super Foie Gras starter (x2) and Duck Parmentier and Cepes Omlette mains. The set menus also included a delicious Potage (traditional garlic soup). The whole meal and the service was excellent!

Two of us had an amazing prix-fixe lunch at La Petite Borie. For starters one of us had pate de campagne, the other a huge goats' cheese salad. For mains one of us had confit of duck, the other pork in a creamy mustard sauce, both with Sarladaise potatoes; 13.50 euros each, plus 3.50 euros for a glass of excellent... More

I have just read the previous one star review and can only think that they visited a different restaurant. This is an excellent place with pleasant waiting staff and lovely food. We had the €17 decouverte set menu, which starts with a free extra dish of delicious boullion. The foie gras was excellent, as was my wife's confit of duck... More

We ate here on our first night in Sarlat, unfortunately recommended by our accommodation & it was terrible. We have travelled many months all over Europe & this is by far the worst experience we have ever had., in any country. Indifferent service - and that's being kind, awful greasy inedible food. Thankfully, we found a wonderful place the next... More

We loved our evening at La Petite Borie, but do make a reservation. We must have seen at least a dozen potential diners turned away. Service was excellent and so was the food. Although it is pretty typically Perigordian, there were dishes that one does not usually see. The garlic soup to start was delicious and the rest of the... More
