“Coffee...then lunch...”
Review of Cafe des Arts

We stopped on the way back from St Chinian Sunday market desperate for a coffee and cold drinks for the kids. We sat outside surrounded by locals and a great atmosphere. After our drinks we decided to stay for lunch as it was so relaxed. Moules et frites for the kids and oysters and salads for the adults (although the kids pinched a few oysters!). Food was fast, fresh and reasonably priced - couldn't ask for more!!!

Fantastic place, day or night, whether morning espresso or afternoon beer. Service with a smile from Fabrice. Wonderful outdoor seating on the street. Table oysters fresh from the market, a quirky (!) Unisex toilet and a liberal view when it comes to settling the bill. Awesome place.

The place was packed with a cacophony of conversation bouncing off the ceiling. While locals sat at the bar drinking, all the diners were served with super-efficiency by one waiter. First course of air-dried ham on a brioche bun with, bizarrely, a squirt of crème Chantilly on top was delicious, even though the Chantilly was slightly sweet, but it worked. (In France, unless you can find unpasteurised double cream, Chantilly can only be whipped up with the addition of a sachet of powder called Chantifix.) Main course, perfectly cooked salmon en papillotte with rice and roasted cherry tomatoes. Everyone else had an O.T.T. café gourmand, which they loved, and I went off piste with a "Tiramisu". Goodness, how I wanted to rush into the kitchen to show chef how to make an authentic one! This arrived in a small kilner jar and was simply crushed biscuits layered with crème Chantilly and a dollop of blackcurrant jam on top. Never mind, there were 8 of us and, with coffees and four large pichets of wine the bill came to a mere 20 euros per head. Terriffic atmosphere and I'd go again.

We stopped here after the market on the Thursday for lunch. Friendly staff and good salad . Children's steak and chips went down well with our 5 yr old grandson. Nice break only downside was cash only no credit cards accepted

Friendly staff, friendly locals and the prix fixe lunchtime menu is sensational. I'm not sure that anywhere else I've been has offered in depth discussions on les terroirs, the method of grape harvesting and promise of rugby tickets for the six nations!
The staff are so friendly, I can't wait to return. A la prochaine visite!
