“Good taste of regional food”

We had reservations for 7:30. The place was empty when we arrived but it filled up quickly. If we had come later we would have seen the massive portions being served and might not have ordered both a starter and a main for each of us. Everything was delicious and well prepared, and was a marvelous... read more

Excellent. Fine. Good ambiance. Well place in center of Rodez close to the church. Try the "Aligot" and the "salade de Laguiole".

When we arrived in Rodez on a Friday night, we had 2 restaurants in mind. However, both were full and we were just wandering back to our hotel when we came across L'Aubrac. We knew the TA reviews were not great, and with no restaurant in mind, we decided to give it a try. The ground floor was full and... More

Handily placed in a square adjacent to the cathedral,it is not difficult to see why this small restaurant is popular with locals and tourists. We got in without trouble at 7.15 but within 30 minutes hopeful diners were being turned away. The menus are excellent for trying Aveyron specialities. The cooking,presentation and service (by one very efficient but unrattled young... More

This restaurant gets some mixed reviews but we found a town centre restaurant, popular with locals, serving excellent regional food in a pleasant environment with efficient, attentive staff which should be #1 in Rodez. We looked at some of the top rated restaurants and discounted them all, small menu's, cost, location. L'Aubrac is in one of the main squares just... More

This is a wonderful restaurant in the centre of Rodez. I recommend that you book as it is a very popular place on a Saturday night. The food is fantastic and as we were a party of 4 we can recommend both the set menu ( 22 Euros) and the a la carte ( steak) . Very friendly staff, speedy... More

Overall this was a disappointing experience. I wanted to try the regional dish called aligot, which is a potato puree together with a cheese element. The starter Aubrac salad was good but the main dish of local sausage and aligot was really very mediocre. In fact I would say the sausage was the least appetising one I can remember eating.... More

L'Aubrac was recommended by one of the local shops as a good place for local food, and we booked a table during the afternoon. The owner was pleasant and very happy when we booked. The restaurant was almost empty when we returned, but a few other customers came during our dinner. It was not "crowded." The food was excellent. We... More

First-class traditional food of the region. Very reasonable for the quality & quantity of the cuisine on offer. Service both efficient and friendly, notwithstanding the numbers dining.
