Description: Centrum city restaurant with a nordic decoration( it's normal, the chef is Swedish and his wife is Belgian) You can enjoy the kitchen work thru the long Windows showing the chefs. Cosy and dynamic athmospher. The best place in Albi to travel sitting! We only work with fresh products and most of the time from our rich region. Our wines are "Nature" Our Sommelier : Guillaume Roubet, have received the high distingtion from the Gault Millau guide " The best sommelier 2014 in great South West"

All is done in a professional manner here: the interior, flawless and perfectly aligned. Service staff are well trained, real pros in what they are doing.
And the cooking is modern and professional as well.
Foie gras starter comes hidden under a cover of beetroot and raspberries, veal fillet with a raviolo and espuma sauce...
All that has its price, but it‘s worth it.

We visited the beautiful medieval city of Albi in 2006 and were invited by friends to eat at L'épicurien. We had a thoroughly memorable meal there so we decided to go back in March for a birthday celebration. We were not disappointed. The ambience had been improved, not that it needed it, and the staff were excellent in that professional way where they know the food and wine that is being served and they don’t hassle you and know just when to pop by. We went for the Menu des Très Gourmands, it was a birthday! The meal was superb and couldn't fault the evening. As we live in France now it won't be so long before we head back there.

When i enter a restaurant with regional or national cuisine I'm always interested in the nationality of the patrons. L'epicurien was full of the French. The staff was very accommodating allowing us to change tables from out to in as the evening chilled with a laugh and good nature. Suggested pairings of wine with my pigeon was appreciated and the meal and service was perfect. Within a short walk of the Albi old city and the excellent Hotel Alchimy,it was a perfect dinner choice. No more expensive than any excellent restaurant and worth the price.

Really good food - fresh, light, flavoursome, contemporary and well presented.

Staff are personable, professional and very helpful - including patiently translating the menu to English for the non-French speakers

All in a lovely room, centrally located.

I'll be back

When visiting the family in Albi, we always make a stop at this lovely restaurant. Each and every time we're here, we leave with a bigger smile.
Great food, great wine, great service and the decoration is beautiful.
With a full view off the kitchen, the calm in the dining room, this restaurant is really one of a kind. Excellent.
