Absolute nice food, very well cooked and the presentation was great. It has numerous authentic French cuisines you have to try. I personally love the creme brulee, the sugar caramelised on top is very thin and crispy, the custard is very creamy and rich. The best creme brulee so far.

This restaurant has an excellent €25 menu. The goats cheese entree was superb. I had the mixed grill main but the apple tart dessert was amazing There was also a menu of the day , a child's menu and an a la carte menu. Lots of choice with wine with either glass, 1/4, 1/2 or 750 mls

We were lucky to get a table for 2 at this small but popular restaurant in the heart of this lovely town as we hadn't reserved, but as we arrived before 8 pm, there was a table available. We settled for the excellent value-for-money set menu at €25, which included 4 different choices of starters, main courses and desserts. I... More

We opted for the Menu Papillon at 25€ which includes three courses. I had the escargot salad, my wife the two goats cheeses salad, for starters, both... More

In a place where the word "vegan" is almost unknown the restaurant Le Papillon offers a good vegetarian menu which can be easily converted into vegan! The owner was very friendly and helpful.

We found this place on a recent visit to Albi. There were ten of us and we weren'tt sure we could get in, but they cheerfully set up a table for us upstairs. Their salads were gorgeous. My husband and I shared a caprese, and also shared a pesto pasta. For dessert, we also shared a poached pear with delicious... More

Two friends and I opted for this restaurant because of the good reviews and vegetarian/vegan-friendly options. However, the less-than-courteous waitress spoilt our evening from the start: we asked for vegetarian/vegan options and she told us we could have asked on the phone... Clearly irritated. We'd decided to go there specifically because they can accommodate for us (as specified in their... More

We went to Le Papillon because we had read the other Trip Adviser reviews and they were not wrong! Friendly chef in his own bijou restaurant. The menu du midi changes daily and offered 3 fantastic choices for starter, main course and dessert. Food looked great, tasted delicious, I can particularly recommend the confit de joue de porc if you... More

We (five people) had a very pleasant brunch there. The salads are excellent: a combination of fresh ingredients, excellent seasoning and nice sausages or various meats. The person who served us was also the one who made the meals so she knew perfectly well how the each "plat" was made, what she could add or leave out. The service was... More
