Eaten here a few times and always had a good meal , I prefer the lunchtime as it seems to be a bit more relaxed . Family or friends would be happy here

Do yourselves a big favour and ignore the less than inspirational exterior appearance. Once inside you are in for a treat ! The food is superb and really well presented. The service is friendly, professional and efficient. We have eaten here several evenings and have always been more than happy. Last Friday we decided to try the lunch menu for... More

My husband and I had lunch at Different today on a day trip to Castres. We were very impressed. The exterior, as others have commented, is bordering on shabby but inside very nicely decorated and comfortable. The three course lunch was exceptional for €15, and we would have expected to pay much more given the quality of food and size... More

Behind an unassuming frontage lies a smart interior with great service and a good choice of lunchtime specials. At 14 euros the value is superb and the house wine very drinkable at 4 euros a half litre. We heeded the advice to book ahead and were glad to have done so as the place was full by 1.00 pm on...

We were recommended to eat here by friends who live in the area and it did not disappoint. Le Different is a place that, unless you had been recommended, you would probably just drive past as it does not look very appealing from the exterior - but don't let this fool you. Inside, the restaurant is simply, yet tastefully, decorated... More

This unassuming little restaurant is deceptive, when you arrive it is just farm house at the side of the road, and parking is challenging. But once inside, the hosts and staff are so friendly and welcoming, and the place is spotlessly clean. You cannot find fault! The menu is 14 euros, which we would have paid just for the main...

The "Différent" is a restaurant I have been to many times. The food is original, tasty and 100% fresh and in season, and great value for money. And you never come out of there still hungry. The lunch menu changes every week and offers a choice of 3 starters, 3 mains and 3 desserts. The service is friendly and efficient.... More
