Best dinner in Albi!

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... read 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

We got a recommendations from the hotel and were so happy we even returned the next day. Try the confit, veal and practically everything was very tasty. The couple is mindful of every ingredient and the results didn't disappoint. Highly recommended

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

This small restaurant, down a small street, not far from the cathedral is well worth seeking out. A very warm, friendly greeting, excellent food and wine. Goats cheese salad starter was very good as well as the veal with mushroom sauce main course. Would definitely return to try some more of the very intersting items on the menu.

Tucked away just off the main street near the cathedral. Well worth the little extra effort to find. A very warm welcome accompanied by good food & wine. What more could you ask for. Reminded me of eating in one of the Bouchons of Lyon.

WE arrived around 8:30, the restaurant is just about empty, within the hour it was full, and for good reason. The food was the best we'd had, the service was wonderful and the kitchen was very accommodating to special requests. The price was reasonable. We plan on eating there again before returning to the states.
