It was a blustery fall night with a chill in the air. The steak restaurant we had planned on going to was closed, and the Ambroisie's warm glow was spilling into the street. We arrived at 730 and were able to get the only unreserved table. Try the house aperitif, it is wonderful, and the steak with gorgonzola sauce was perfect! Excellent service and quaint feel!

We had lunch at the Ambroisie on 2 August 2011. Both Madame (front of house) and Monsieur (the chef) are charming hosts. We had a set menu which was very enjoyable and good value.

The restaurant is in a side street close to the cathedral. Anyone visiting Albi would enjoy this restaurant.

This restaurant with the size and the relaxing intimacy (!) of a nicely decorated living room having just more than 10 tables was our great discovery during our stroll through Albi in order to find a good place to pass a romantic evening. And so we did! A warm welcome by the owners ('he' cooks, 'she' serves) who understand exactly what good food is about; fresh products, simply combined into a good recipe, and also presented in a creative way (my fresh tunafish salad was served in its blue can ;-) .. simply original!). Good wines and advice to accompany your meal: I had a lovely "blanc perlé", a dry white wine with a tiny little sparkle to go with my "Surprise de St. Malo" (fish). Simply not to miss in the old Albi village when you're there to visit this birth town of artist painter Henri de Toulouse Lautrec .

Imaginatively prepared meals served with graciousness and charm. The owners take great pride in their achievements. And very reasonably priced. Not to miss when in Albi !
