A great addition to St Antonin in the past few years

Situated by the river, great to eat outside in the good weather. Nice inside with 'Jazz' theme. Well run by a husband and wife team. Excellent helpful staff. Very Good food and very good value. Used many times since it opened.

My meal at Le Festin de Babette was possibly the best I had in a restaurant on a recent driving tour through southwestern France…And that’s saying something in a region known for great food! I really liked the location of the restaurant along the banks of the Aveyron River, with very nice views back to the quaint town of St.... More

An impromptu lunch turned into a feast of flavours. Small but varied lunchtime menu, at the bargain price of 14€ for 3 courses.... each course was well presented, sufficient in quantity and full of flavour. They managed to accommodate a faddy eater without problems. Plus the view of the town and the river just added to the ambience. One to... More

We stooped here for lunch one day and were very pleasantly surprised at the great view service and food. The staff spoke very good English and more than happy to let us pick and choose from the "set" menu. The food was well presented and very tasty. Great view of St Antonin if you can get a terrace seat on... More

Gourmet cooking, good selection of items, helpful service with a smile. Ask for a table on their terrace and enjoy a lovely view of St Antonin Noble Val across the river. Parking nearby and just a short stroll across the bridge to the village. 3 course lunch with drinks was 56 euros. Advise to reserve ahead. We would return and... More

The owner Roger was very accommodating and when other restaurants were closing at 2pm nothing was too much trouble for him. The food was really good and Roger was very pleasant and didn't rush us at all. We're glad we found this restaurant overlooking the river by the bridge in Antonin Noble Val and would thoroughly recommend it.

We booked a table for two after reading reviews here and decided to try this restaurant out. First, thanks reviewers, we were not disappointed. The little details set this place way above the norm, the jus on the carmamalized black pork was truly amazing. The waitress speaks French and English and gave us a very detailed description of everything on... More

A good rating as it was not average but to give it a very good rating is difficult since we only had a couple of dishes. We had dinner last night and what we had was very good. A cold Foie Gras starter you can't get that wrong our mains were a lamb stew which was tasty and tender and... More

This was our second visit to an intimate and charming restaurant with a well balanced fixed price menu serving traditional as well as inventive French cuisine. The setting by the river is perfect as is the attentive and informative service. Godd wines at reasonable prices. The special of black pork was sensational. The best spot is on the terrace overlooking... More

Compared to all other local restaurants in the neighborhood, Babette serves local products in a very own way. Presentation is beautiful, service very friendly and efficient. Great view on the old village of Saint Antonin from the terrace. All this for a very modest price!
