Best thing about Lourdes

Escape from the insanity that is Lourdes and go to Le Palacio. We did, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Tables are available both inside and outside. It was very, very hot the day when we were in Lourdes, and the inside table we chose was perfect – cool and peaceful. The waiter was friendly... read more

The restaurant is in the centre and has extensive eating area outside and inside. The food was the best we experienced during our week away travelling southern France. The staff are very friendly.

We come here every year to get away from the tourist areas and to have a nice meal. It is the best meal in Lourdes.The steak is superb, as is the Madiran wine, as is the ambience, up in the town,. The locals eat here- what more can you say . Always a welcome from Madame

Situated in downtown Lourdes, far away from all the tourist restaurants. They serve excellent french cuisine and wine at reasonable prices.

I had eaten here last year and it was delicious. Fed up of the everything with chips in the bars so ventured here on the last night of our pilgrimage. We all had steak which was very tasty and not a chip in sight! Would definitely recommend it.

Dining at Le Palacio was extremely pleasant surprise. Based upon other reviews we decided to try it, without making a dinner reservation, and were glad we did. The menu was quite extensive offering 3 set price menus and a large selection of a-la-carte dishes and the only trouble we had was with ourselves not knowing what to order (perhaps a... More

If you want a really good restaurant in Lourdes, French style, friendly owner and staff, this is the place for you. It is easy to find in the town up the hill behind the market, away from the tourists down the hill, and its the place where the French eat in Lourdes.It is better than most Parisian restaurants I have...

Lourdes is a hard town to get a good meal in. Most hotels (and there are hundreds) serve food, and it's fairly indifferent. The pilgrims who come to Lourdes are not fixated on the pleasures of the table. I had dinner tonight at Le Palacio, blissfully away from the tourist scrum that is Lourdes, and while it was not terrible,... More
