Always ignore reviews, very recent to this one, where someone runs down service etc without ever getting in to the place and eating there. All seems not to be worth the effort.....?

Anyway, service was wonderful. Did not book, turned up at 8.30pm on a Friday night and the Maître D' soon found us a table very quickly

Food was wonderful as was the setting. Lovely quiet garden setting away from the hub bub that is the main square of Sarlat.

Staff were efficient and very friendly. They speak enough english but the menu is in both French and English so easy to understand .

DO give this place a try as the food is very good and good value.

We will be back. Thanks to all of the staff and especially the chefs for a great evening!

We had been recommended to try this restaurant so let me start by saying I cannot review the food as we did not get that far. My wife Jan is vegetarian so we called in on the last Monday in May to try to book for Wednesday evening. Plenty of notice you would think. The Maitre D' met us at the door and I asked about booking for 2 days time and told no problems. I then discussed the vegetarian food and he said they did a tomato salad and that was all. I asked as we were giving notice could they do something lee. We said Jan likes cheese, eggs, dairy etc but not meat, chicken, fish etc. We also mentioned perhaps asparagus as we know that was in season. The first shock we got was the Maitre D' said that asparagus was too expensive to serve. Hang on I thought this is an expensive restaurant and could charge what they like but he went of to talk to the chef. On his return he stated that the only veggie food they could do was what was on the menu. Needless to say we did not book but went away thinking what a really poor chef and what an appalling quality of service. The good news it was their loss not ours as we went of and booked Le Petit Manoir and had a really excellent meal.
We cannot review anything other than the terrible service as we didn't really get past the door sadly

In good weather, the garden provides one of the most attractive places to dine in Sarlat. The food is well prepared, solid traditional French cooking, tasty and attractive if not especially ambitious. Portions are on the generous side, and service is quite pleasant and even reasonably efficient, providing there's not too much chit-chat going on with the locals. The indoor rooms are attractively decorated, with perhaps just a touch of kitsch. That said, I liked the place, and would happily go back.

Le Presidial is an attractive restaurant offering a typical Perigord withe the emphasis on foie gras and duck but a cut above the Sarlat restaurants offering similar fare, and enough other choices to satisfy most tastes. Knowledgeable and attentive service, very good food and an excellent variety of wines, many of them local, make Le Presidial a good choice in Sarlat.

Just loved everything about this restaurant. Service, atmosphere, charm. Oh did I mention the FOOD and wine. Don't miss this restaurant in the cute, quaint town. Indoor or outdoor seating, reservations probably a good idea, especially in the busy season. YUM YUM YUM,YUM.
