A funny two-story house from the 1930s, with jungle carpets and murals on one level and unfinished walls on the other. As a bonus, there’s a small gravel courtyard with palm trees, where Rodez’s finest eat their hearts out. Luc Pourrat (formerly of the École Vatel and the Hôtel Costes) and Chloé Tatin (front-of-house) opted for a tapas menu, featuring well-known but well-made recipes (vegetarian lasagna, crispy chicken, red berry pavlovas…). We left feeling anything but disappointed after a bass ceviche marinated fresh (and not overpowered by lemon), touched up with sea beans, scallions and cilantro; a sunny vegetarian triptych of tender eggplant, hummus and ricotta mousse; an ample platter of tataki-style marinated beef, lightly caressed by a soy sauce / sugar / sesame oil seasoning; and, straight from the Clot pastry shop, a stacked praliné, chocolate and caramel dessert. // Adrien Nouvaire

FEELING THIRSTY? A small selection of juices: homemade detox juice (spinach, apple, ginger for €5) and fermented grapes – a Pinot gris from the Pays d’Urfé Caves Verdier Logel and an Entraygues red from Pauline Broqua (€4 to €5.50 a glass), a Languedoc red from the Domaine d’Aupilhac and a Gaillac from the Domaine Cinq Peyres, both for €32 a bottle.
PRICE: Tapas €5-15, kids’ menu €8.
