“Fabulous food, friendly service”
Reviewed 23 November 2011

I followed the locals to this wonderful little spot. Open only for lunch, the service was prompt and efficient. The host was very helpful in taking me through the menu in English as I am not a fluent French speaker. Dessert comes in half serves, still very generous but perfect for those dining on their own or only wanting something small. Wine is local, organic and very good. Highly recommend!

“Treasure Found!”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

Some would say that the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum is the main attraction for this out of the way destination in Albi, France. After days of struggling to dine in a meat/fish dominated country, we were thrilled to find this fantastic Oasis in fine vetarian cuisine. Highly reccomend this for a meal you will not forget!

“Does it ever open?”
Reviewed 30 September 2010

Vegetarians can find it challenging to find something to eat other than salads and margerita pizza in France (where I found that even dishes advertised a "vegetarian" contain meat). So imagine my delight when I discovered that Albi has a vegetarian restaurant! I would love to write a positive review for this restaurant however, I never had the opportunity to eat there. Over the three days that I was in Albi it was never open. We went by every day during peak meal hours and even though the sign on their door said they should have been open, they were not! Too bad as it looks like a really nice place right in the historic part of Albi. I recommend that vegetarians seek it out on the seeming ever so slight chance that it might be open. If not, head to the wonderful Le Papillon as they have a large vegetarian menu (that really is vegetarian!)
