“Promising Starter; bad finish & service”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

We found ourselves in Figeac in time for a late lunch and decided on this café because its menu seemed suited to our tastes and budget. The starter was nice although in retrospect they were probably prepared at some nearby bakery and the salad that was served as the main course was simply disappointing and hardly contained what was listed on the menu board. At that point we made a complaint that was clearly understood by the waiter who then avoided us to the point of not even bringing our bill. When I went inside to get the bill and pay, I think I came to understand why that had been the case -- a somewhat chaotic situation seemed to exist between the proprietor -- who actually brought our starter -- and the rest of the staff... maybe that situation was only for that day or that moment but, since there are plenty of other comparable places nearby, consider them before "5".

“Try the Fois Gras!”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

In the main square and overlooking the museum. Pleasant service and good French food. Small menu (but that's a good thing in France) with food which is prepared after you order. Seafood was good too.

“Good place to eat in Figeac”
Reviewed 11 May 2013 via mobile

Very friendly, clean restaurant just off the market square in Figeac. Hosts a music evening on Thursdays with various local players. The food is always fresh and good value. A welcome break after "doing" the Saturday market.

“Excellent New Years Eve dinner”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

Lovely New Years Eve Dinner. Food was good and service excellent. Guitarists helped with the mood. Lovely and good fun - perfect for a low key New Years Eve dinner - and just about everywhere else in Figeac was shut!

“Great lunch great service and wonderful location”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

We visited Figeac on a cold December day and were delighted by the warm welcome we got here. The menu of the day was imaginative and great value for money. The house rose was delicious too. So if you find yourself in Figeac go along and enjoy!
