“Sorry, but we don't agree”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We ate here on two occasions. Unlike other reviews, our experiences were mixed. The first night was quite good, but the second was a real 'fawlty towers' experience, rounded off by the owner making us wait for 10 minutes to pay the bill, while she chatted with some friends. Her offhand 'Pardon' was classic. Sorry, but we cannot share the high views expressed by the other reviews.

“Nice food, great people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This restaurant's food is really tasty, with a lot of choice, and a series of menus at varying prices. The restaurant itself is really pretty with an inside part (with air conditioning) and an outside seating area and the deco is lovely. The best part of the experience was the welcome we got and the constant care throughout our meal. We ate with our two-year old and the owner even brought him crayons and colouring-book to keep him occupied. Really fantastic!

“Delightful Village Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We had an excellent meal at Les Calicots on a busy Saturday night. All of the food was delicious and the bottle of local red recommended by the waitress was very good. The restaurant is in the inner part of the village of Fabrezan, but is easy to find. The slow-cooked lamb was the highlight of the meal.

“We keep returning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We are lucky enough to stay in the village most years and delight in a meal or two here. The chef owner and his wife are very friendly and the extensive menu never fails to offer a tempting choice. Part of the rear of the restaurant is open to the sky which can be great on a hot evening but be aware it is also a permitted smoking zone. Local wines and divine puddings always impress at a reasonable price. Booking essential in season

“Great meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had a delicious meal (mine was cassoulet) and a very good VERY local red wine to compliment our dinner - recommended by the friendly server. The chef, Olivier, came and visited with us afterward and was friendly and surely talented!
