Rustic interiour with tables close together and a really laid back and nice atmosphere. You easily start talking with your neighbouring tables. They serve very good wine at affordable prices along with a good selection of food.

Our group of 10 were walking around to find a place to eat & were rejected by several places as it was main holiday week in Feb. This place seemed quite small from the outside but we checked & they said it was possible so we followed them to a larger upstairs room that we could not tell was there.... More

Good, friendly service and good range of delicious food. The restaurant is set back from the main road.

Good quality food, served by some nice and efficient waiters. A real and "normal" restaurant unlikely to its neighbouring "les chandelles" which is utterly disgusting in terms of service and hygiène.

Good location with a good looking restaurant. Friendly staff, average food- was expecting better. Open till late which is useful when the rest of the village seems to shut early

Lunchtime on a miserable summer day - not many clients so we were served quickly. I ordered the seiches (cuttlefish) at 15.50 euros, and my friend, the parillade de viande (grilled meat) at 18 euros. The staff were friendly and efficient but the dishes were very ordinary and not particularly copious. Two seiches, a few lettuce leaves and a timbale... More

We have a holiday homet in Azet and therefore go regularly to Saint Lary throughout the year, and have been doing so for just over 10 years. Le Gros Minet is one of our locals and we go regularly. Lovely food, always great quality and good atmosphere. Le boudin noir/the black pudding is one of the best (and my favorite)... More

The port wine came out of the fridge (!). The meat out of the menu for the kids was raw and fell apart spontaneously. The meat on the pike was raw as well. Vegetables were the same on all plates and not very tasty. Waiter was unfriendly. It was rather unexpensive (108€ for 3 adults and 4 kids) but not... More

welcoming staff, informal atmosphere, tasty food...... choice sitting downstairs on stools and high tables where you can see your food being cooked or upstairs where its quieter around tables. always a winner when complimentary manzana arrives.
