This restaurant was recommended to us by the owner of the gite where we were staying as being one of her favourite restaurants in Albi and we were not disappointed.

We had not made a reservation when we went there for lunch but the staff made us very welcome. It was a hot day and walking to the restaurant we had passed a number of pavement-side restaurants where people having lunch looked rather hot and uncomfortable, so it was a real pleasure to arrive at Le Lautrec and to be offered a table in its very attractive, shady courtyard.

The food was good and the service attentive. We highly recommend their dessert Cafe Gourmand which includes three small desserts and a cup of coffee.

English is spoken here.

The service, ambience, wine list were good but the food was terrible. My husband sent his dish of segala veal with some kind of mushy filling back to be reheated as it was lukewarm. The unappetising vegetable on one side of the plate tasted bitter and looked like apple. The waitress said it was potato (although there was a touch of mashed potato on the plate) but after a visit to the kitchen said it was "navets", i.e turnips. We have lived around here for 15 years and have never been served turnips in a so-called gourmet restaurant. Surely they are food for pigs, etc? The first courses - minced scallops (probably 2) plus a bit of beetroot, thinly sliced onion - and for me an overcooked dish of snails mixed with vegetables - were equally ghastly. At the price of Euros 28 each for 2 courses, there should have been better ingredients and better cooking for the money.

We have a puppy and the places outside were taken. We asked to sit inside and they let we stay and even offered our dog some water. The decoration is very special and cosy. The menu is huge and you really don't know what to choose, everything seems delicious! Staff spoke English and we had a very pleasant meal, in all aspects! Strongly recommended!

It was a hot day and all the tables outside were taken. I must admit that the entrance doors to the actual restaurant looked slightly forbidding - you could not look inside properly but since we knew we were in for a treat, we just went in and were pleasantly surprised by the interior decor. The menu of the day was excellent - a choice of 4 starters, all very imaginative and delicious. The choice of main course had been pork and fish but the pork had run out and instead we were served a superbly flavoured kebab of turkey meat. The fish was on a tasty bed of rice and round courgettes. The desserts were equally delicious. The service was good and overall this was an excellent lunchtime experience.

Finally a traditional French restaurant, not for tourists alone. Its across the road from The master Toulouse- Lautrec's birthplace. Full of charm with bright paintings decorating its brick walls. After a full day in Albi, a roasted rack of lamb marinated in an infusion of Provencal thyme,is just the ticket. But its the cassoulet of codfish,duckling en confit and savory sweetmeats that is the showcase treat. Lovely busy and percolating spot. Very nice staff
