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...More

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

Amazing place - great dishes and fine natural wines. We had lunch and the carpaccio of langoustines was just great. The sommelier recommended an excellent bottle of wine at a fair price as a discovery to my husband (a sommelier himself)

This restaurant was across the road from our B&B and it is also near the centre of Albi. It must be one of the best in the city and we were happy with our three course meal. The veal tartare starter was outstanding.

We were staying in Albi overnight on our way to the Med and saw this restaurant close to our hotel. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Glad that we found this place.

Well for high end bistro style french cuisine this is where its happening. You have to be ready to pay the price (50-100$) per person but I had, by far, the best red tuna tartare ever and just for that it was worth it!
