“Nice place for a drink but food is nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

If you want to stop for a drink this is a great place. The outdoor seating is split into 2 sections, a small bit by the building and a larger bit across the road in the main square. The view to the mountain is really nice, and you can watch what is happening in the main square.

If you want something quick and easy to eat for lunch it is ok here, but not if you want a nice meal. it's basically a nice European pub/cafe with pub food

“Open After 14h Saturday”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

We were passing through Foix after our holiday in the Pyrenees on a sunny September afternoon and decided on a lunch stop in Foix. .Café Gros was happy to serve us lunch after 14 h and had plenty of outside tables and was clearly popular with the locals. Food was plentiful with a good range of fish ( i has salmon with rice, salad, green beans and a king prawn thrown in ). The fish was great though the vegetables were overcooked. My partner had a very good goats cheese salad with a hard boiled egg added at his request at no extra cost. Dessert du jour was apple cake. Good simple food - we would stop here again

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

We sat in the center of Foix under the trees in this amazing small pub/restaurant, we ate duck (all three possible variations from the menu) and it was perfect! Service was also very kind and smiling and speak english (which is very rare in France!) Recommend!

“Great food and atmosphere in a charming historic town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

A pub setting with burgers, quiche, lamb ribs etc. The food is very good, atmosphere is nice. It is worth a visit if you are in the area.
