Surprised that this restaurant is not more highly rated on Trip Advisor - walked in on a cool February evening to a warm welcome and some delicious food. The Salmon Ravioli is recommended whilst my wife enjoyed the duck in a very pleasant local atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will return.

No trip to this area would be complete without a long leisurely lunch here. The rabbit stew is absolutely amazing, as is the iconic caussolet. To my fellow Americans used to "doggy bags" be forewarned. They have no take-away containers. Embrace your "ugly American" self and bring your own. We do, and it's even better the next day!!

L'Instant Delice was recommended to us by a friend. We were not disappointed. The Duck breats was done perfectly. There was a good choice of vegetables and side dishes. Desserts were sumptuous. Now that it is getting colder, seating can be limited to the inside. It's not a huge restaurant, so definitely make reservations. The place has very good food,... More

Pleasantly surprised to find an excellent small restaurant in lovely Sarlat. A walk around the medieval streets, talking about our previous visit four years ago, made us hungry and we were nor disappointed.

There are so many places to eat I. Sarlat, some with the same standard menu of foie gras pate, confit duck and nut tart. We had lunch on a Monday, some restaurants are shut then. Sarlat was busy. This restaurant was pretty decent, service slow...but that's a cultural difference with UK, so we were fine to wait. My partner had... More

Every year we keep returning to this restaurant because our kids want to! The Ravioli is handmade and really good. Our youngest loves the duck.

We have started late to search a restaurant for diner and have barely found a place. And it was very convenient place with good chairs and good food (extended choice of local duck specialities) for decent price. Bergerac wine "mis en bouteille au château" 2010 was very good for just 13,9 a bottle.

We, a family of 5, went expecting to sample a typical Perigord menu instead ended cutting our evening short because of the horrible treatment by the manager when pointed out that my son's foie gras had a strand of fine, blonde hair on top. As we all have thick and dark black hair it clearly wasn't 'planted' by us in... More

I visited this restaurant with my girlfriend passing through, noticing all that stickers on the entrance; Michelin, TripAdvisor, GM... We wanted to try typical Périgord cusine and this place seemed just right. Waitress was very kind, trying hard to speak English, which was actually really bad. In a place like this I would expect at least menu in english language.... More
