We crossed the bridge from our hotel to the town to dine at Le Papillon. We went down several alley-like streets looking for it. Finally, my wife asked an older woman walking past us if she knew where it was. At first, it seemed like...More

Past the odd frontage, there is a delightful & cosy dinning room (+another upstairs - not viewed). A fairly large choice, which would satisfy all... including vegetarian! Chef was in a fantastically good mood & joked in English ;)

Walking in the old city, we stopped in here for an early lunch. There was only one other customer, but by the time we left, it was full, and people were waiting for tables. An excellent meal. Good service. Great value.

Located in one of the more quiet streets of the historic center of Albi, Le Papillon offers a peaceful setting for a delicious meal. We had lunch here, and the food was excellent and prices very reasonable, a 3 course lunch menu cost 15€. Highly...More

My only criticism of le Papillon might be that the menu is fairly restricted, but it is a small place and what they do is first class. A trio of Goat's cheese with honey was tasty and interesting and the scallops were among the freshest...More
