This restaurant gets busy - even when there are no tourists around - which probably says quite a lot for the quality. Food tends to be big salads, grilled meat, french fries variety, but good quality. They also seems to specialise in fondue, but i haven't tried it there. Staff are friendly and service is usually good except when you... More

Only go if you and a friend want to share the same food. Almost everything in the menu requires at least two people to share. My friend wanted meat. We got meat, and virtually nothing else. Raw beef to deep fry in fat at the table, some cold French fries and a few token leafs of lettuce. The bottle of... More

After a good start, the food was ok, not excellent, but fine, they gave us the desert menu. It was very busy and a waitress dropped wine on a guest. Then they left us there forever waiting. They didn't look our way, ignored our calls. And when we finally stood up and left and paid at the bar because no... More

We had lunch here in June and it was terrific. When we got there the place was filled, mostly by locals. A lot of them were eating what looked like the plat du jour which looked very good. But we had come for fondue and were not disappointed. We selected the one that used a local cheese in addition to... More

From the warm welcome to the delicious food and the cost decor I don't have a bad word to say about this restaurant. The portions are very generous and it is great value for money, we both had the menu at 19e and all three courses were excellent, the homemade sangria is a lovely too. The staff were all very...

Upon arriving in Luchon, my Luchon friend recommended going to L'Arbesquens for fondue, which is located on the main street of Luchon. Reservations (especially during the French school holidays, which is when we went) are recommended, as we walked in at 7:00 pm to make a reservation for 8:30 and they told us they were full until the end of...

The interior is a mock mountain chalet and the tables very close together . Having said that the food was excellent and French and the cost of the 'forrmule' E19.50 for three courses very reasonable . They make a very good Sangria here too . Fills up very quickly during festival time : couldn't get in for dinner but managed... More

we had been warned that Luchon would be "en fete" because of the Bastille Day parade despite the lateness of our booking, the lovely owner found us a table on the roadside so we saw all there was to see, as well as have a good evening meal. The lovely waiter who looked after us got everything right - as... More

When we ate in the restaurant the staff were really friendly and attentive, the atmosphere excellent. As it was hot we ate outside the front, which is where most people were which was a lovely experience on the street. Generally the food was excellent, and extremely well priced, with the exception of the Tartiflette which was such a disappointment as... More
