High quality but at a price

This is a difficult restaurant to review accurately. I think that our table position and slightly over formal atmosphere might have something to do with it. Our table was in the middle of the dining room, so we could not really appreciate the fine views. The food is excellent and clearly prepared... read more

To like this restaurant, you need to like food from the South West of France. It is not a food type to everyone's liking but if like me you like this food then you should love this restaurant: The food is excellent - consistently reliable and delicious over the last 25 years. The wine list and the advice is also... More

I have been going here for years, living in the area. Initially it was super service was good , but not exceptional. We used to go there often in winter time, but when we got back in summer we were treated as outcast by the owners wife. Happy Happy in winter, more than welcome, but come back in summer, when...

This restaurant was a lovely way to end our holiday. The atmosphere was very relaxed, the service was friendly and professional, and the food was excellent. The cassoulet was probably the best I’ve had and the desserts were outstanding. It’s a bit expensive, but the food and service were better than what we’ve had in some Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris... More

The prices here are relatively high, so the Auberge is a special treat for us. Menus start at 45€ but are copious. There is a less expensive menu at lunchtime. Depending on the weather, you can eat outside on a large patio surrounded by flowers, overlooking the stunning view. There is a movable roof which is always used for mealtimes... More

On the outskirts of the village and normally with lovely views across the Lauragais plain (although sadly on this occasion and unusually for mid-August the torrential rain lasted all day and spoiled the vista) is a gem of a restaurant that offers welcome, comfort, classy food inventively cooked and presented with some style - at prices that although not cheap...

Having to attend a wedding in Hérault, I made a one night stop at Auberge du Poids Public, because I had great memories of a previous time, ( also for a wedding! ) I found everything to be just as perfect as the first time : a nice room overlooking the rolling countryside, a very hearty and sincere welcome, and...

Surprisingly, this restaurant only had four tables occupied on the day we visited at lunchtime. Splendid views to be had from the panoramic terrace, the food is good, reliable and well-prepared cuisine of a high standard. Service was, in general, excellent, with a tiny lapse in that our coffee order failed to arrive, but Monsieur was so mortified by this... More

Wonderful outdoor terrace overlooking the valley, friendly and efficient staff and great food. We started with an amuse bouche of mussels in a saffron sauce, followed by either langoustine ravioli or fois gras three ways, then we both had wood oven roasted leg of lamb, succulent and full of flavour and strawberry soufflé with sorbet. Wines to match were just... More

Stopped initially for a drink and went on to order a light lunch. A specially prepared and delicious salad. Large restaurant with out door covered terrace with splendid views over the countryside. Obviously a popular restaurant, with most people either having a set lunch or ordering a la carte. Stylish service, comprehensive wine list. We were eating again in the... More
