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

Arrived early and was seated outside. Our French is limited but the waiter clearly explained the menu. Food was served in a timely manner. Quality French food at a reasonable price. Cafe one very cheap.

We went for lunch at Le Palacio without any reservations, lucky to get a table before the crowd started to arrive. It was raining hard and even if it is out of way, people kept coming and some have to be turned down. So it is really recommended to get a reservation. The food was great, calamari was cooked perfectly... More

We went based on the reviews here and this was easily the best meal we had in Lourdes. Very reasonable fixed price menus, delicious food, and great service. A bit off the beaten path but well worth finding since one could easily spend twice as much at a place in the touristy section for a far less satisfying experience.

I visited this restaurant in the middle of May based on the reviews I read on here and I can honestly say that I was not disappointing. I realized why it has been voted the best! The food was delightful! and great value too compared with other restaurants in Lourdes. We thought that the outside of the restaurant does not... More
