L’Esprit Sarlat, Sarlat-la-Caneda

We had the best food of the trip here at L’Esprit Sarlat

An elegant restaurant, lovely atmosphere, serving amazing food from local produce, at a price that won’t break your wallet.

Modern decor

Wine selection aplenty

They have a 3 course menu (good priced) and an a la carte menu.

Perigord starter platter

Duck foie grais, goose rillettes, cured duck breast, cured ham, walnuts, and salad

Amazing. All of them.

The best most amazing duck breast in the whole universe

Perfectly cooked, beautifully sliced, perfectly seasoned sauce, goes perfectly well with perfect mash potatoes

It was just perfect

The portion was massive too

I want this NOW

Duck confit

Everything is again cooked perfectly, and everything goes well together.

But nothing matters, scroll back up to see “the perfect duck breast”

Fish, which I believe might have been deemed delicious

I was obviously too busy being in love with my duck breast

Are we too full for dessert?


Are we a bunch of gluttons?


Let’s see the dessert menu….

Oven baked banana – soft & gooey & custardy

Served with desiccated coconut, ice cream, fresh whipped cream, and chocolate sauce

Chocolate fondant cake

Served with ice cream, fresh whipped cream, and raspberry coulis

Deconstructed vacherin

with berry sorbet and fresh whipped cream

Mixed nut cake

with chocolate sauce, crème anglaise, and whipped cream.

We left the restaurant very full & happy
