My husband and I visited for dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews and were definitely not disappointed. We both had the set menu and were very impressed with each dish. My entree of pea veloute with ravioli was delicious, as was his pate. My main was a whole fish which was cooked perfectly, with potato and ratatouille - a fantastic... More

To be honest I was not taken by this town. It's ok, maybe I just don't like red brick. This restaurant however is what I imagined good family French food to be. It is accessible and very tasty and the staff were kind to us given that our French is appalling. It is also reasonably priced and the chocolate pudding... More

Ok, so this is my 3rd review of L'Estanquet but good venues need praise and consistency is all important. L'Estanquet deserves both. This was the first time we'd been for dinner so the menu was more expensive than the great value lunches, however the food remains of a very high standard, the staff are charming and helpful, the decor delights...

Off the main tourist routes, this is a very French restaurant. Staff were kind, courteous and very patient with my dodgey French. Good menu, but not for the faint hearted - the steak tartare was very good! We had menu de jour (€23 for 3 courses) with drinks extra.

We were in Montauban for two nights and ate at this restaurant both nights! The food quality and choices were amazing. I have had duck in many place in France over the years, and this was the best quality, best cooked, best accompanied duck I've very had. The entrees were unique and delicious. The servers were helpful and friendly. The... More

I know I've reviewed this hidden gem before but now after three visits its worth adding a bit more. A hidden gem, because L'Estanquet is a little out of the city centre just across the Pont Neuf. Worthy of further comment because there's great consistency across the service, the ambience and most importantly the food. This is a bustling French... More

We visited last last Autumn, had an exceptionally good meal and promised ourselves a retun visit. That the place is full and of locals is a strong indication as to the quality and value that lies within. L'Estanquet was just as bustling as the last time visited and the food as delicious. We chose the menu maison consisting of three... More

No doubt someone here has their finger on the pulse. It's no surprise the place was full to the brim when we visited. Wecan only echo what others have said before us. The food was excellent and the value for money unquestionable, a sensibly priced wine list that favoured red drinkers in the main. The ambience was all you'd expect... More
