“Exceptional restaurant, best in the region”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Our first meal here was so exceptional - in terms of imaginative menu, superb food preparation, terrific wine list, dishes that were utterly unique in color and shape, and absolutely perfect service that we returned to Mariottat the following night, when the place was much busier. The repeat performance was on a par with the previous meal, showing the chef-owner and his wife's great skill in blending traditional and modern trends in French haute cuisine.

Mariottat is pricey but worth every euro, representing good value for its Michelin one-star status (it definitely deserves a second star, though it might lead to a price hike). Whereas Agen isn't exactly the loveliest of French towns, Mariottat makes it a worthy destination along with the municipal museum with some fine archeological exhibits in the basement.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Probably the best restaurant in Lot-et-Garonne offering fabulous value, especially at lunch time. Michelin starred restaurant, superb variety in their food, excellent and friendly service in a great setting, right in the middle of town but very quiet. Beautiful property inside or, in summer, lovely garden setting. The meal is extensive with many little touches, which are gently explained by the staff. Our favourite restaurant for a special outing. Just beware that the wine prices are on the high side.

“Grand but not too grand”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Mariottat is quite a formal, old school restaurant, lots of room, big tables, long wine list. But service is friendly and the food is excellent, classic but with some modern touches. We ate off the carte, 48 euro for 3 courses, but it was more like 6 courses with the amuses bouches and between course offerings. The quality was very good throughout.

“Lovely restaurant”
Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We had a wonderful dinner on the outdoor terrace. The restaurant has 2 Michelin stars and the food certainly lives up to it. But unlike some Michelin stared restaurants, the service was excellent without being too formal or overbearing. One of our favourite things was the "bread box" we each received with 4 different types of bread inside. The terrace is a wonderful spot if the weather is nice. We would certainly return if in the area again

“Superb”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Must be one of the best restaurants in the SW .
Superb food . The owner keeps a very close eye on things with friendly and attentive staff .
The restaurant is in a very impressive old stone building in the old quarter of Agen with a private car park . In the summer you can dine outside in the very attractive garden and when it's cooler , inside the grand rooms lit by chandelier .
A great restaurant to sample 1* Michelin food . You will not be disappointed .
