Page 14 of 28: Sarlat Market, Visit of Castelnaud Castle and Lunch at le Petit Paris

Sarlat Wednesday market

The next morning the weather was cloudy. We decided on Sarlat market followed by a visit to Castelnaud castle and museum. The Middle Ages war museum was interesting for kids and numerous families were visiting it. There is a demonstration of one of the weapons at the base of the castle before your visit.

After the visit to the castle we went to Daglan restaurant le Petit Paris. We were the first to arrive to this restaurant and were seated on the terrace along a nice street in Daglan. We could park no problem in the small public parking just in front, at 100 meters. The weather was cloudy in the morning, but then became sunny.

This restaurant doesn't have a child menu, but they arrange a plate from the menu in a simpler version for a child. We ordered duck confit nems for him from the appetizers section.

We were served complimentary rillettes de canard to die for with bread accompanied by a rose we ordered. I went with €25 menu and my husband chose the €29 one. I ordered a foie gras Carpaccio, it arrived served spectacularly on a delicious toast. It was surprisingly big. My husband also had duck confit nems which in his case came with a duck broth with green tea and rice vermicelli. This was an original presentation. Then we both selected ris d'agneau in balsamic vinegar accompanied by gnocchi made of chestnut flour. The ris d'agneau was exceptional and very tender. My husband then chose the cheese platter with black cherries confit, excellent according to him.

We were surprised, but the bill has to be paid inside. We waited for a moment to have the machine at our table but finally were told to pay inside. Everybody was very polite at the restaurant.
