Nice little restaurant just off the square which serves a very simple but very nice menu. Focus is definitely on local produce and meat. Great cassoulet and the Jarret du Porc is a great rustic terrine. Waitress was keen to practice English whilst we spoke to her in French and was doing the same in Spanish on the next table.

Tiny kitchen and a total of two staff, one of whom was the chief, work hard to feed a variety of locals and tourists. Relatively simple menu, heavy on local product, with a focus on meat. This is a streetside diner, not a restaurant - which is fine, as that is their aim. Between us we had a steak frite,... More

We were visiting the picturesque town of Mirepoix during market day when we decided to stop for some refreshments at what looked like a nice little cafe just off of the main square. The menu looked a little basic, but there appeared to be some space and it was in a shady spot so we decided to persevere. This was... More

Good appetizers, good main courses (try the Cassoulet!), very good wines and rich desserts. The service is quick and professional. Nice sitting outside under an umbrella; inside a little crowded!

Nice restaurant just off the maim square, we stopped in for lunch on a busy market day and enjoyed a great cassoulet and veal steak washed down with a tasty rose. Cassoulet was home made and the best we had tasted on our holiday. The waitress convinced us to try a bottle of rose over the pichet, only 2 euro... More

Only an entree and main course included in the 12euro menu. For another 1-1.50 you can get a pudding too round the corner. The salad starters were uninspired and served on tiny plates. The Bavette steak was tiny and the pepper sauce tasteless it was served with a small portion of chips, a small portion of tagliatelle and a small... More

I have never understood the reputation the French have for rudeness. In all the trips I have had through France, over many years, I have found service to range from formal to "correct" to warm to downright friendly, but NEVER rude. Today, that changed, at Chez Pap's in Mirepoix. Granted, today was market day, and Chez Pap's is a restaurant... More

Recommended to us by our Hotel, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We didn't bother with starters and had excellent steaks which came with chips, salad and pasta (which was probably one step too far!). Not surprisingly, we didn't have room for pudding, but we enjoyed our (not expensive) local wine and, particularly, the banter between the ladies in the front of... More

Chez Pap's had been recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. I had the cassoulet and found it very tasty - and filling! My husband had the entrecote steak and they cooked it 'bien cuille' as requested - this is unusual in France! Despite it being a busy Saturday evening the service was good. Not cheap but then we were... More
