We ate in this restaurant by the side of the bridge over the Aveyron. The food was innovative, well prepared and not particually expensive. The staff were attentive and relaxed. Shall certainly go again.

if you can get a table by the riverside on a lovely summer evening you probably won't even notice that the food is nothing special, and a bit overpriced. In my opinion they are trying to give the impression of fine dining, but without success. The location is everything, so give it a try if that is what appeals.

Had a dinner here with family in early June. Absolutely gorgeous situation on the terrace overlooking the river. Loved the sounds of the frogs as darkness fell. Classic simple French cooking. Local ingredients. I had a simple dish of strawberries for dessert. No ghastly chantilly cream just a very good jus which brought out the flavour perfectly. Good monk fish... More

Booked this restaurant on the strength of previous trip advisor comments and was not disappointed. The service and friendliness of the staff was outstanding and the food excellent. It all tasted freshly made ,which I'm sure it was, and the choice was excellent. I would definitely return...... And will!!

This restaurant is so good I don't want to say anything more than, you must eat here when in Saint Antonin! We went on the back of other trip advisor reviews and ordered the scallops and blackened pork menu and it was delicious! So much so we went back the following night for dinner again trying other dishes. The presentation... More

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
