We were a group of 7 en route from Andorra down to Toulouse airport. Foix is about halfway so we thought we would stop there for an evening meal. It was quite early, about 18:00 hrs and it was also late January so quite a few of the restaurants were not open yet (or at all). After a short walk... More

Very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. We enjoyed a nice lunch full of flavour shame about the busy road but it didn't spoil anything.

We came into Foix looking for a lunch stop. This was the first place we came to. We had a good meal. The waiter was friendly, the service was good and the foods was also. A good place to sit and watch the world go by.

An interesting location for an Irish bar but there you go! Service was prompt and friendly. There was a decent range of food on offer, with great sized portions coming out.

This pub/cafe/restaurant is a good standby. Right in the centre of Foix opposite a huge car park ( that is free between 12 & 2pm - presumably for lunch ) The pub has an Irish /English theme to it and the food is always reliable if not gastronomic! ! Closed Sundays which I find amazing for a tourist town. Great... More

We sat at the bar, ordered 2 drinks, fully intending to look at the menu and order food but were amazed and disgusted when the bar staff lit up a cigarette and started to smoke behind the bar. This shows total disregard for all the customers health and the law. Then we saw a customer hand rolling a cigarette on... More

This restaurant is near the market square but, strangely enough the outside tables are on an island in the middle of 2 lanes of traffic. It’s quite interesting watching the waiters go back and forth dodging cars! We stopped for a lunch – mine was Salade Chevre Chaud – lettuce, tomatoes, olives, lardons and 5 sizeable pieces of toast with... More
