The setting in a 15th century chateau is beautiful. The food was well-prepared and beautifully presented with friendly service and the portions were a bit larger than is typical for modern French food.

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B hosts and we were very grateful. The evening was fantastic. First, the setting is just awesome. We sat in the courtyard and it felt like something out of a fairytale. Second, the service was excellent. We had 3 different people, all friendly and helpful, attending to us and so how could we not feel well cared for? Third, the food was delicious. After ordering your meal, they take you into the caste's wine cellar so that you can choose your own wine. Fantastic! And it's worthwhile to walk around the town a bit too - - several really charming buildings. All around great experience.

I guess I can't add to much that's different to the reviews already posted except the one where the couple walked out because of poor service. This was not the case for us although we did book for an evening meal in the tourist off season and so probably things were a lot quieter. This restaurant had been recommended by the owner of the townhouse we had booked in Sarlat as somewhere where we could get a fabulous meal that was outside the run of the mill foie gras restaurants in Sarlat itself. We dined in the Great Hall and were not shown a wine list but escorted down to the wine cellar where we selected the wines we wanted with the meal and brought them up to our table. The meal itself was, we thought, reasonably priced for its quality and we enjoyed it immensely. It's probably not a restaurant for children, especially if you book for an evening meal. Most other diners were couples. We did go back ( without a booking) for a Sunday lunch and unfortunately, as with most things French, lunch service finished at 2pm virtually on the dot and we missed out by 10 minutes. Bookings are probably essential. However, courtyard or inside the restaurant, I don't think you'd be disappointed with either the food or the venue itself.

Went there at the recommendation of the B&B where we were staying (Les Tourelles, great) and were enormously pleased we did. Since it was cooler we ate inside. this is the most different restaurant one can imagine; there are three different entrances into a medieval castle nestled alongside the church. You might, as we did enter through the kitchen, never mind everyone laugh, smile and get on with it. Then, imagine a serie of vaulted rooms accessed by various stairs all inside a medieval castle. So medieval that one of the bathroom still has the 'over the parapet' type of alternative hole. Fantastique. Our food was as good as could be (foie gras, duck, tournedos) and well representative of the area and we were blown by the fact you had to go down to the cellar to choose your own bottle, though my wife felt some advice would have been welcome.
The service is typically laid back though attentive if you catch their attention and you can
expect to spend about two and a half hour at the table.
