Description: The restaurant "La Ciboulette" has opened its doors after a long period of renovation to invite you to travel far away and not so far - with a real paella always on the menu... Only 2 km from the centre of Foix, in the direction of St Pierre-de-Riviere, its peace and quiet will seduce you. With parking, an open fire place for cold days and a covered terrace for warmer evenings - welcome!

We were recommended this restaurant and went along to reserve a table for that evening. We were right to do so - when we arrived the place was buzzing, with every other table occupied. We were greeted and served by the owner/manager, whose husband does the cooking. The meal was delicious, and the atmosphere was homely and delightful. We were made to feel very welcome, and would love to go back there. It is obvious that the owners care a great deal about their guests' experience. We would highly recommend La Ciboulette.

My boyfriend and I booked this last minute as we had seen great reviews on here - and what a fantastic meal we had - the best of our 10 day trip through France!

The place itself is lovely and you can here the babbling brook the moment you get out of the car. You feel as though you are being welcomed into someone's home (which you are!) Leela was so lovely and welcoming and went through the menu with us and answered any questions.

The food was AMAZING and so reasonable. We loved how it was a twist on French cuisine and we had a great bottle of wine too. THE DESSERTS! WOW!

We were totally bowled over by every aspect of this place (especially given the seeming lack of decent restaurants locally) and Leela was a dream. If we are ever back this way we would be back in a flash!

Thanks Leela!

We made a last minute reservation at la ciboulette to celebrate a very special occasion. I am not sure I have ever felt so welcome in my life! The hostess (presumably the owner) was the friendliest, most welcoming lady you could imagine. We tried to speak French, but she insisted on English (hers was perfect). She let us sample her wines and advised well on a really unusual organic white.

The food was good, definitely lots to choose from and plenty to satisfy vegetarians! The chef made sure there was plenty of flavour to everything.

The restaurant is in the valley, near the river. The inside is simple and homely, with a roaring fire (presumably not in summer!)

This place perfected an already perfect day. I strongly recommend a visit to anyone passing through. It's just a charming little place!

A beautiful retreat in the heart of the Ariège
Leela and her team in la Ciboulette are working to assure a perfect stay whether you visit them for lunch, dinner or stay over-night in one of their cozy rooms.
We visited la Ciboulette over the Christmas break with my family and everything in this enchanting little inn was perfect. Leela is an amazing host, taking care of every little detail to make sure that we were comfortable. The rooms are large and cozy. The beds amazingly comfortable and breakfast is abundant and delicious.
When our car broke down Leela helped us get it started.
There is no better place for a nice, relaxing stay in Foix than la Ciboulette.

As the new picture shows, there is now an outside dining terrace; this really is a bonus for the summer months. The food is still good and very reasonably priced. Service is friendly and relaxed.
