Get good directions, very difficult to find in the old town. It is tiny with very limited seating. The food is excellent. The wine list is limited, but good. I wish we could have returned to it again.

Small restaurant tucked away in a side street in Albi (not difficult to find though)
Food is French / European and actually it is excellent.
We had lunch which was menu of the day, fixed Starter and dessert and choice of main, we chose Rabbit and it was fabulous. Service is attentive but not pushy ( English spoken).
Think it is a two person setup and they should be highly commended.
Not sure I can find any fault with this place.
YOU SHOULD BOOK as whilst we were there they had to turn away at least 10 people.

My wife and I went there for a dinner on a very cold and wet night and had the most wonderful meal. Both the food and service were excellent. They also have a good wine list and the host helped us to choose a very good wine to suit our palates. The restaurant is owned and run by a husband and wife team and it was disappointing to see that one table did not turn up to honour their table booking. The restaurant was otherwise fully booked and during the evening the host had to turn away other potential diners to keep the table available for the no shows. As it is only a small restaurant the owners probably lost 10% of their potential income for the night. If you are in Albi, this is not a place to miss.

Very nice restaurant in Albi, Saturday at noon you have one menu with a sarter and a dessert and for the main course you can choose between a meat and a fish. All that for 15€, with a very warm welcome. It was a fabulous meal!

This is a very small local restaurant. We had our hotel make our reservation weeks before we arrived. We were there on a Sunday evening and all tables were full and we were the only tourists. All others diners were locals. The proprietor was really great. He spoke enough English that we could converse and he was very jovial. The food was beyond Delicious. I would recommend this establishment for anyone wanting to experience French food with delightful service.
