A small beautifully run restaurant, delicious food, many day specials at a fair price. Lovely desserts and salads. Always very busy so in summer months booking ahead is a necessity.

Beautiful food and friendly staff in a quiet village. The food is fresh and flavourful and the menu changes daily.

I have visited this wonderful place several times and it never disappoints. The staff is wonderful and the food always consistently good. Just get there early or they may run out of what you want. Small and intimate.

Time your visit to the Sarlat Open Market closer to closing (1:00) and then take a snack, coffee or delightful light lunch outside at Le Sesame, street-side midway along the market street. Very tasty meals, nicely sized, with delicious home-made desserts (when available).

Stopped in to Sesame for lunch. They serve very good food made fresh from local produce. The quiche, sausages, lentils, salads, desserts -- all are very good. The atmosphere is very local even though this restaurant is popular with tourists as well as the locals.
