The food was beyond. Really delicious and wellknown by locals. Our hotel owner of Le Vieux Albi recommended this restaurant.

We chose Le Pappion based a friend's recommendation ... and she was right! The food was delicious, the service was courteous and patient (we know very little French), and the prices were reasonable. It is a family owned and operated business. The father was preparing salad when we arrived, and it was wonderful. The son and mother waited our table.... More

My husband, my 2 kids and myself had dinner at Papillon and all of us had a wonderful experience! For half of the price the kids had a complete menu (entrée + plat + dessert) with the same food as we the adults (no chicken nuggets here!). My husband had the red snapper with orange sauce that was absolutely fantastic.... More

Food was well below expectations - veal was tough, sauces average at best. Service was scrappy and ambiance left everything to be desired.

We stopped by this restaurant in search of cassoulet but due to the weather it wasn't on the menu (it was too hot), but the friendly chef assured us he had other great options, and he was true to his word. We had the plat de jour which was very tasty and great value. The chef and the waitress were... More

My wife and I had lunch at this WONDERFUL sidewalk café in Albi. It is just a couple of blocks from the Cathedral. It was absolutely the best meal we had in the 10 days traveling Spain & France. My wife had a salad, and I had the lunch special (salad, fresh vegetables, and beef kebab). Afterwards, she had a... More
