5 of us ate here last evening, having booked the day before as it is very popular. Had the salmon starter followed by the veal both of which were excellent. Dessert was more of a problem to chose as they all sounded delicious. Some settled on the fresh fruits cheesecake with strawberry sorbet whilst the others for a selection of ices and sorbets, all delicious. Bill came to E31 a head including a very nice bottle of red and two glasses of white. The menu only changes every couple of months otherwise would eat here every day of my 5 day visit!

We loved the place and the atmosphere. Excellent food, the soup we had was the best soup I had ever had.

Recommendation from TripAdvisor was worth the visit as usually ;) Really, really good food; both the strter and the main were really yasty, the beef for main was perfectly cooked and came woth a nice tepanade and potatoes on the side. Dessert was ok but nothing special.

Service was poor. The waiter was on his own, which I think should never be the case no matter how small the restaurant is. We were waiting for him to take our orders for a really long time and when I asked if we could finally place them he was explaining himsef for a few good minutes and became cheeky and trying-to-be-funny, which was really annoying and most importnantly very unprofessional and actually not very polite...moreover, my mum is allergic to garlic, he ensured it wasn't added to the courses as requested by us but served an amuse-bouche with garlic regardless...

Overall a nice place with really good food so I would come back :)

We visited Albi for one night and pre-booked Ambroisie for dinner and are really pleased that we did. It is a smallish restaurant which seems to be popular with locals and tourist alike. The service was exceptional, friendly, attentive and we were given plenty of time to have our meal in a relaxed manner. The waiter speaks excellent English and responded nicely to our (rather stilted) attempt to converse in French. The menu du jour cost €26 (in the evening) for three courses preceded by an amuse bouche.
There is only one sitting so there is no rush to leave and many people had to be turned away as they had not booked in advance.
All in all a very pleasant dining experience!

Loved EVERYTHING about this restaurant/meal last night! Booked just 1 day before but glad we did as it was fully booked and people were turned away. Restaurant is small but full of character, colourful and cosy. Melon amuse bouche was sublime - such intense flavour from foam! Our choice of starter were the guacamole with the most perfectly cooked prawns and THE best salsa ever! The first place in France I have had mouth tingle from the spice - fantastic! The octopus starter was amazingly tender and full of flavour. Main was a veal which was cooked perfectly and SO tender, served with a beautuful morel sauce and fantastic sweet potato fries - superb! Dessert for me was the lemon tiramisu, which was devine and the marinated strawberries with chocolate brownie & ice cream, which was spot-on! All in all, absolutely fantastic and it will be my 1st choice for Albi in future!!!

Thank Pauline B
