Various friends do sometimes bad mouth TripAdvisor to me knowing how much I love it. Well how would I have found this place in Albi without it? Tucked up a side street away from the centre, but absolutely brilliant for a 3-course lunch of unbelievable quality and price? Best meal of holiday so far!

This place was recommended to us by locals and our expectations were fully met. The food was excellent. I had lamb which was tender and falling off the bone. The roast potatoes cooked with garlic were very very tasty. My friends all said that they enjoyed their food. The waiters were attentive, accommodating and service was fast (especially by the...

This restaurant is just a little out of the way across the River Tarn from the Cathedral, but worth the short walk to get there. If you do one of the "city walks" you could time it to break for lunch here during the walk. We had an exceptionally good 3-course lunch. Try the "Floc de Gascony" as an aperitive--goes... More

The view of the cathedral is beautiful, the xmas decorations were charming, specially the Christmas tree on the ceiling! The service was good and friendly, and the food was excellent, good presentation and with certain original touches, like the mango jam served with the foiegras... we spent a really good evening in all, so highly recommend! The only thing s... More

We reserved a table for 9 and all of us were delighted with the situation, the view of the cathedral, the peace and quiet on the private terrace, and the meal was excellent at 19€ each, the service was professional with excellent humour and the wine list was exhaustive catering for all tastes and budgets.

Such a shame.whilst the location is still good , and the service was friendly, the food has changed completely. Gone are the home made quiches and puddings , to be replaced by pâté and duck and chips - not awful but just the same as every other restaurant in the vicinity . Why is it that good things rarely last... More
