Well known in Toulouse, Émile serves one of the best cassoulets of the city. It would be a shame to overlook the rest of the menu, though, as it is of very high quality. I like their fish a lot. It is also a very nice place to eat outside.
The chef officiates almost alone, which does not prevent him from offering perfect plates. Fresh products, inventiveness and especially taste, always taste.
La Belle Equipe is both an atmosphere and bistro cuisine with fresh products. You will not go for: trendy cuisine and unknown tastes. You will go for: quality of products, accuracy of cooking, the wine list and a place where Audiard could have shot a movie.
Trendy place on the roof of Galeries Lafayette, you will pay for the setting, but the food is also worth it. The terrace offers an unbeatable view of Toulouse, the neo-seventies atmosphere is fully assumed, the bartender knows how to make cocktails and the chef masters fusion cuisine anchored in southwestern France.

Among the restaurants that have renewed the culinary scene in Toulouse in recent years, Monsieur Marius offers an inventive market cuisine, tasty and subtle, where each dish is described by its three main ingredients. Raw? Cooked? Grilled? Stewed? It’s a surprise (but you can ask).
The first thing that will strike you about Le Bibent are its baroque gildings and large windows that open on the Place du Capitole.

I have a soft spot for potatoes stuffed with pork feet and for the boiled egg piperade with bacon chips.
With his inventive and precise cuisine, chef Aziz Mokhtari will surprise you with unexpected but always right pairings. I have an excellent memory of his oyster with bacon in a kiwi gaspacho. The room is nice and features an open kitchen. Very good service. Booking highly recommended.
