Absolutely wonderful location. We'd tried to get in here before but were quickly shown the door due to a lack of a reservation, even though it was nowhere near full. We did finally get in and the food was pretty good, if not a little fussy. It's mentioned in the Michelin guide, which they are quick to point out. Was... More

We did not intend to go to Berlou but Le Lezard Bleu at Vieussan was closed so we crossed the bridge and climbed above the Gorges de l'Orb to this peaceful village among linden trees. The restaurant was a real find with the €16.50 menu consisting of duck leg on potato with apple sauce followed by a delicious sweet of... More

Le Faitout is just the sort of restaurant we want to return to soon - excellent, and charmingly unpretentious. Our delicious mid-day meal was cooked on the spot with fresh local ingredients. The presentation was simple, but with great attention to detail. After a tangy amuse-bouche of sardine/tomato, the first course was a velvety butternut squash soup with finely sliced... More

Our host Barbara at Escape D'Oc had booked a table for us. It was an ideal end to our week in Languedoc. Frederic, the chef and proprietor, presented a memorable meal with fine local wine. The restaurant overlooks the gorge that the young river Orb creates. Nightingales sing along with the brook. Lovely.

Beautiful setting. Good friends. Agreeable service. Tasty food. End of review. That's never the case, is it? You deserve more. Berlou is a small village in the hills well north of Beziers. You just find the village, park in front of the local cooperative winery, and there's Le Faitout, an old stone building on the Rieuberlou, a fast-flowing stream that... More

I have visited this restaurant only one time, but the food was very good, the service was excellent, and the setting is gorgeous. It is in the hills above Saint Chinian, in the Languedoc, south of France.

Around a corner and over a bridge we found the courtyard of Le Faitout and had the most enjoyable afternoon. The sun was shining and the food was delicious. The service and food from the husband and wife team that own and run the restaurant was well worth the visit. It's definitely on our must visit again list.

Had a wonderful lunch at Le Faitout today - we were offered a choice of dining inside and out, and since it was a lovely sunny day we chose to sit outside. Service was relaxed and very friendly, and the food was excellent. Portions were perfectly sized for our group, big enough without leaving us feeling too full at the... More

It was a bit overrated. I had squid and it was a bit dry. The service was really nice and the family atmosphere was very welcoming.
