We went here on a wet November lunch time at 12.00 and just got in without a reservation. We had the menu du jour, 3 courses for 21 euros and it was very good and the service prompt. The staff were friendly. Lots of people were having this set menu and I assumed that they were locals, always a good... More

Go for lunch and have a wonderful and delicious menu for a very reasonable price. Once of my favorite restaurants I've ever eaten in while living in France for the past 12 years!

I visit this restaurant 10+ times every year. The food is simply very nice. The daily menu is excellent value for money. The Swedish chef makes the most of the fresh French produce.

After looking through many reviews we decided on this restaurant partly because it was also close to our hotel. Great reception, stylish decor and excellent food beautifully presented. The service was good though we had to ask three times for some water and thanks to the warm evening you could choose between eating inside or on the terrace. Well worth... More

The decor and ambiance were great and the food and service just as good. We shared the veal for 2 for our main and it was beautifully cooked and full of flavour.

Turned up in Albi on the first rainy day for months. Parked the car and decided that lunch was first on the agenda rather than a walk around Albi in the rain. As we stepped off the roundabout I spotted three restaurants in a row and decided I liked the look of L'Epicurien, checked it out on TripAdvisor and walked... More

The chef here is clearly proud of his locally-sourced seasonal food. Gazpacho starter was welcome on a very warm evening in August, pasta with fresh seafood was a huge dish, beef tartare on the now almost obligatory plank of wood was creamy and all washed down with local Gaillac wine. The only very small downside was the outdoor deck -... More

L'Epicurien is our favourite restaurant in Tarn. We have lived here for 12 years and tried hundreds of restaurants in the region, but we keep coming back to l'Epicurien. Why? Because it serves beautifully prepared and balanced dishes of seasonal french produce at an affordable price, especially in the lunchtime menu du jour. There is always a novel twist to... More
