A comprehensive list of restaurants to suit all is listed below.......

Foie Gras Gourmet Cuisine
A nice book From Here You Can't See Paris about a local restaurant in the Lot (author Michael S. Sanders). It is out in paperback and we recommend it to whet your appetite for upcoming travels as well as your palate. The restaurant, La Recreation in Les Arques is a must.  It is located 15-20 minutes drive from Albas. If you require accommodation in our B&B or Gite please enquire.

Eating out
Some of our great chefs!
Lots of great restaurants in this serious gastronomic area featuring foie gras, truffles and Cahors wine. At the quality end of the market, "Les Bonnes Tables du Lot" is an association of top chefs who are well represented within a radius of 20kms, including Le Gindreau, Chez Marco and La Recreation at Les Arques. For every day eating, a typical lunch "formule" in several of the local restaurants will cost between 10 and 15 Euros and will usually include local wine. Nearest good eating places are located in Prayssac, Puy L'Eveque, Cahors, Sauzet, Anglars Juillac, Duravel, Greels, Castlefranc, St Medard, Les Arques, Mauroux and Douelle as well as in Albas itself.
