“Delicious food and amazing value for food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

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 of portions. I had a lardon quiche, some delicious poached chicken with lots of vegetables and a very fine creme caramel. Having despaired at times at the quality of cooking in the restaurants around Aveyron, this place was a stand-out. We highly recommend it.

“Little Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2013

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 a wet midweek day. Overall well worth seeking out as it's location is well outside the town.

“The most exceptional value for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2013

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 and the welcome and service were equally good.

The food, however, given the price of just 14.50 € for a three course lunch was exceptional and in my view represents the best value for money meal I have experienced, ever!

Can't recommend highly enough but do book as the restaurant has a very loyal local following.

“Excellent, book ahead!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2013

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 course, but it is for 3 delicious courses, all fresh, beautifully presented, hot and great choice from a small set menu.
All in all this is a must visit place, but book ahead, it gets very busy and people obviously go there regularly, as will we!!
