I'm focusing on restaurants which provide value for money lunches in and around Mirepoix. Les Minotiers restaurant has a classy feel about it with lots of space and a very relaxed atmosphere. The Maitre'D was very helpful in explaining the menu du jour which we always opt for as a baseline for comparing the budget lunch options at local restaurants. There was no choice but what we had was very pleasant. For starters we had ham stuffed with celeriac in a creamy sauce. Main course "choux farcie" ie. cooked cabbage stuffed with very tasty slightly spicy minced pork. Desert was a lemon tart topped with meringue. We had a carafe of the house red and finished with coffees and the bill for three came to 41€.

A great restaurant with a brilliant lunchtime deal on the "menu du jour". A great, very funny and hospitable Maitre'D and all his staff, and behind the scenes the chefs in the kitchen really know their stuff.

There is nothing not to like about the setting, the hospitality, the food, the ambiance and the price. If only we had places like this in England. Well done to all the team at Les Minotiers.

We spent an enjoyable evening having dinner with friends at Les Minotiers. Welcome was friendly, tables a big plus in our view as they are round, unusual in France but makes for a much more convivial atmosphere. Although a pleasant room, in my opinion it was far too brightly lit, another thing you found very often here in France.Apéritif orders taken promptly and with a smile. The menus which vary in price from 17 euro basic to a 29,33,and 39 plus a l'carte, plus a children's menu offer a wide choice, probably too much. The 29 to 33 euro menu have an option to add a glass of wine per course at a reasonable price. For 33 euros my Foie Gras with figs was very good and an excellent portion. This was followed by Faux Filet cooked rare and served with Pyrenees cheese melt. The steak was tasty but a little tough. Desert was a Fondant au chocolat, probably not a la maison but none the less very pleasant. The wine list was decent and we enjoyed a good bottle of Blanquette de Limoux and Cab Sav. With coffee all round the bill worked out at 50 euros per head. In 10 yrs living in this area we have never managed to visit Les Minotiers but from this experience we will go again, probably in summer as they have a large outdoor terrace.

The interior of this restaurant is pleasant and welcoming. The service polite and efficient. Of particular note was the menu with accompanying wines (by the glass). The price was good and it takes the pressure of having to select wines.

Excellent and quick service. Really delicious food. Lovely atmosphere with outside seating. Beautiful deco inside the restaurant as well.This is one of the places that we really need to go more often to. The food is always delicious and everything is impeccably clean and bright. Home made bread, home made desserts, big servings. We all had the menu from 17 euros, entree, main and dessert. Not your typical local dishes. Lovely flavors with beautiful seasonal fruits and vegetables.
