Good food and prices

Food was so good at lunch that we went back next day for supper. Husband and wife very nice and accommodating. Don't let fact it is along side street scare you off.

We chose this restaurant following the recent reviews and because it was one of very few options on a monday evening. We wish we hadn't gone. This is an overpriced restaurant (€25 for a three course meal and €8 for 50cl of house wine) offering mediocre fare. We had a uneventful goats cheese salad to start which comprised a few... More

We stumbled upon Le Papillon by chance (but we did get a very positive tip from a local person who works up the street who pointed us in that direction), and one member of our group was swayed by vegetarian choices. Food was excellent and we received top-notch service from the waiter who was the owner himself. On a quiet... More

Yves was preparing to close when we arrived at 2.15. It was the Jour de Patrimoine and the four of us were late getting to lunch. He welcomed us warmly and the inconvenience of being late didn't seem to bother him. Two of the party had specific eating requests which were not accommodated on the set menu, but Yves was... More

My sister and I had been travelling by train around Italy, Germany and France for about two and a half weeks before visiting Albi. Eating at Le Papillon was one of the best experiences of our entire travelling experience. We treated ourselves to a three course meal (which is on the menu for a very affordable price - affordable enough... More

Sit at a small table on the side street...keep those legs in if a car approaches...that narrow! We had the charcuterie plate with an array of flavors and textures! House red was great and the exuberance of the owner made it the perfect lunch!

In our search for an open restaurant on Sunday night, we wandered across this little gem. We were greeted by the warm and friendly Chef who made us feel welcome, even though he was expecting a large group later. The food was wonderful, and reasonably priced. My husband had the scallops and I ordered the very best gambas I have... More

We had a chance to have dinner in this restaurant just couple of days ago. It is located very close from the famous Albi's Cathidral on a small street. It is not a fancy dining but quality home-style cooking, where the chef asks you what food you prefer. I would recommend this place for nice dinner.

This was a fortunate find. Set down a side street close to the cathedral, we arrived at the end of the lunch service and were welcomed and given the last available table. The service was efficiently, friendly and fast. The €15 menu we chose istarted with a Feta salad followed by Cote d'Agneu with a choice of desert. The standard... More
