I was really looking forward to our meal with a large group of friends. It has a very good name locally but the meal was very ordinary. The presentation of the food was adequate but the taste was very ordinary considering the price.

After a visit to the chateau at Foix, we had a very enjoyable lunch at the Phoebus restaurant. We ate from the €29 menu for three courses. The food was excellent and the waiter was attentive without being overbearing. There is a nice view of the chateau from the restaurant.

Just over the river from centreville Foix is Phoebus. It is considered "the best" restaurant in Foix, and perhaps all of the Ariège. We found it very good, but others (Le Médiévale, Jeu de l'Oie, La Contine) to be roughly on par at lower prices. That being said, there is a lovely view of Foix from the entire dining area... More

This restaurant doen't necessarily look too promising from the outside, where it sits on a busy road going into Foix town and next to a nightclub. However, it is worth persisting and knocking on the door (it was a little stiff and we thought they were shut!), as the view from the inside is an amazing one of the very... More

This restaurant is set above the river on the opposite bank to foix centre. It has good views of the buildings along the river and the castle perched above the town. We hadn't booked, we just turned up but there was no problem getting a table. Nice inside and has a big enclosed veranda overlooking the view. The dining area... More

Very nice restaurant, serving regional dishes and wines, calm, intimate, perfect for a romantic dinner. You can take an aperitif before tasting restaurant specialties having a look on the castle

Don't let the external appearance put you off - once you are through the doors the setting and ambience is exceptional. The restaurant sits perched above the river with a view across to the vielle ville with the chateau perched above and at night, with the lights, it looks wonderful from your table. The service that we received was very,... More

The food was tasty and original. Good setting too with pretty views of the castle and river. No parking nearby but don't let that put you off. Service was friendly and overall we had a pleasant evening

We ate here as part of a classic car tour, organised and booked by someone else and as a party of 30 or so. As a result the restaurant was totally at our disposal and 'complet' to anyone else for lunch. The position is the first positive, with great views straight out over the Ariege and to the castle and... More

We were a party of 4 when we went to the Phoebus for lunch. The views on Foix castle are very nice and the staff was very friendly. Food was good, but way overpriced. Also, we were served the same sauce and same vegetables with our 4 main dishes. Not appropriate for this type of restaurant! We paid 200 euros... More
