Riverside Dining

Riverside Dining

All of these restaurants are either local (in the Sarlat area or within a very short drive from La Blanquette) or a little further out but well worth a visit. There are many, many great restaurants to be found in the Périgord but these are our particular favourites and the ones we go back to time and time again. French restaurants don’t always accommodate vegetarians and as we have vegetarians in the family we try to find those that have decent non-meaty options!

Further details are available by clicking on the restaurant where you will be taken to their own websites or a directory listing with their contact details.

Local – within about 5km

  1. Maison Dupéliac – (about a 25 minute walk) – New in 2014, we think that this is one of the best restaurants in the area, and it happens to be the nearest to La Blanquette! Great value traditional menu with a contemporary twist by chef Emmanuelle, and always a warm welcome from Catherine on arrival.

  2. Les Arcades – (about a 30 minute walk) – small hotel with newly renovated restaurant and outdoor bar and terrace area. Serves tasty traditional food.

  3. Le Glacier – (Sarlat centre) – nice inexpensive family run restaurant serving local dishes and also great pizzas and salads. We always get a warm welcome from the hosts Carlos, Bruno and Filhelmina

  4. La Petite Borie – (Sarlat centre) – another welcoming family run restaurant serving traditional Périgord fare and the fillet of beef with Sarladaise potatoes are amazing. Not a great menu for vegetarians.

  5. L’instant Delice – (Sarlat centre) – Italian style cooking with several vegetarian pasta options.

  6. Le Vin au 10 – (Sarlat centre) – a lovely wine bar and restaurant serving very good food.

  7. Le Bistrot – (Sarlat centre) – good mixed menu (including vegetarian) offering local dishes as well as other less traditional meals

  8. Le Regent – (Sarlat centre) – lovely food and good service in the heart of medieval Sarlat. Great fillet steak!

  9. Chez Le Gaulois – (Sarlat centre – Rue Tourny) – small restaurant serving simple and delicious rustic food. Specialises in raclette. Generous portions!

  10. Table de Mikey – (Temniac) – small rustic family run pizza and pasta restaurant, very friendly with lots of vegetarian options and good wine selection!

  11. La Grange – (Carsac) – pizzeria and brasserie in Carsac, perfect for Summer evenings after a day cycling the Voie-Verte and opposite a nice local Tabac bar (Le Bichon) with views over Carsac.

Short drive/cycle – up to 25km

  1. Le Roi Carotte – (just outside St-Julien-de-Lampon) – rustic traditional restaurant with a terrace overlooking the kitchen garden and smallholding (which provides the produce for the menu!)

  2. Sawadee – (Cénac-et-St-Julien) – delicious Thai specialities in a friendly unassuming restaurant. Will also cook vegetarian dishes that are not on the menu so always good to ask.

  3. Château de Beynac Restaurant des Remparts – (Beynac) – within the outer walls of this fantastic castle is a great traditional restaurant. The omelettes are delicious and huge!

  4. Pizzeria Des Templiers – (Domme) – lovely pizza restaurant built into the walls of the bastide at Domme. Just inside the main gatehouse :
