We have had a few disappointments but usually always try to select the top 1-3 restaurants per Tripadvisor after doing a lot of research. In this case, the time spent researching restaurants in Albi was time well spent, and we would classify this meal as one of the highlights of our trip.

The restaurant is operated by husband / wife team of Guillaume and Jasmin, and they do a fabulous job. Guillaume works the front of the house, deftly serving each table with a smile, speaking French and English to his clientele. When we were there, it was a Sunday and it was apparent many of the people in the restaurant were locals -- always a good sign!

That day there was one meal served -- a beautiful tomato tarte / shrimp / salad starter followed by roast chicken and potatoes with two delicious sauces, green beans and carrots. Dessert was some caramel ice cream with cooked apples over some sort of French toast, soft and delicious.

My food descriptions don't do the food justice so I will attach a few photos to this review. The complete meal was 15 euros per person plus wine.

By all means, if you are going to be in Albi, call a few days ahead and book this popular restaurant. You will be glad you did.

Celebrated my birthday here with the family. It was a Sunday evening and many restaurants are closed in Albi. This one was open and I will never forget the great food, the fantastic service and the charming little room. There are only few tables and they are normally full, so remember to make a reservation.

My father and I went last night, and were blown away by the quality of food. It's a small restaurant, and we were glad we booked as it was packed out by the end of the meal.

The menu is small, however this is a testament to the freshness of the dishes, as well as the expertise with which they make them. It was very good value especially for the three course menu. The foie gras starter was delicious and innovative, and a shoutout to the house cocktail which I thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back!

We experienced a lovely warm welcome at Ambroisie. It's a small restaurant with husband providing the service and wife in the kitchen. It's the perfect little place you would want to visit in the old town of Albi. The food was really good and really tasty. There are nice little quirks that lift it above standard fare, and the service is so friendly. We had a lovely bottle of wine and enjoyed the whole experience. We were booked into this restaurant by our hotel and so glad to be guided to this gorgeous family-run place. There are only about 9 tables so make a reservation to avoid disappointment!

We had a lovely lunch here and highly recommend this cute little restaurant. The menu is limited to a couple of choices for the menu of the day, expertly prepared by the wife-chef and served by the husband--both energetic, welcoming owners of the restaurant. It was an excellent value and delicious. Albi is a wonderful, small city to visit and eating at Ambroisie enhanced our day there. Be sure to book ahead!
