A deserved reputation - Edit

This old vegetarian restaurant offers a fresh and tasty cuisine, with several vegan options (or vegetarian dishes that can be made vegan upon request). I tried the couscous and a pissaladière with various raw vegetables. Both dishes were very good, for a fair price (10 euros each). The Lebanese plate looked yummy too. Unfortunately, they had no vegan desserts.

The place is pleasant, very well located in the city center and the staff-owner really friendly and smiling. Even if the place is full, the service is quick. Make a stop!

Pros: tasty food, vegan dishes of the day, friendly staff, pleasant place, central

Cons: no vegan desserts

Delicious - Edit

What a refreshing change to find a good vegetarian restaurant in France. We had lunch there and it was fresh, delicious, home made and satisying. A smallish menu but with plenty of choice. The restaurant was really busy (popular with locals as well as tourists) but the small number of staff coped very well and ensured a good service. We would've gone back but it was shut in the evening. Vive Le Tournesol!

Nice Restaurant not far from the sights - Edit

I went here for lunch recently, after being directed there by a local, and was very impressed! For a small place like Albi, I was surprised to find such a good restaurant, with decent value, and vegan and gluten free options available.

I definitely recommend it, if you're in Albi!

You can read a bit more about it on my blog, if you like:

Pros: nice staff, good food, set meal offerings with large portions

Cons: not a huge amount of variety

Fantastique! - Edit

A vegetarian oasis in the midst of meat- and fish-centric France. If (when!) you travel to Albi's Toulouse-Lautrec Museum, eat here. After ten days trying to explain to restauranteurs that salmon and chicken are NOT vegetarian, my wife and I were thrilled to find this place. Fresh local produce, delicious sauces, inventive flavors, and scrumptious desserts. On par with the best in NY and LA, but wirh the addition of good wine.
