Excellent restaurant

Very good restaurant located on the Place du Capitole, with an outside terrace dining area right beside the Place. Well worth visiting after a hard morning's shopping or sight-seeing as it is so centrally placed. Great food. Have lunched here three times.

We could not fault this restaurant. There is something wrong with the rankings in Toulouse, probably because of the proliferation of pizza and burger joints for les jeunes. Le Bibent offers a great menu, reasonably priced, great service in a beautifully decorated restaurant. Well located on Place Capitole, featuring live jazz some nights. Highly recommended.

Sold at the fist picture I saw of the place, my heart skipped a beat and then had settled to explore this vintage treasure.It was hard for us to lift ourselves off the chair after a long relishing dining experience.Final Verdict: A must visit while in Toulouse. Reasonably priced with big portions of food unlike the preconceived notion of French... More

We went because I had seen a picture of the newly refurbished interior and I wanted to see it for real! I was not disappointed. It is lovely. We had not booked but were seated quickly. The waiting staff were attentive and helpful, There were some adventurous dishes on the menu but I didn't dare try the combination of gizzards... More

Good: the ambiance and the decor are unique, this is a landmark. Average: food is original on the menu but not really on your plate Bad: service as usual in France, you have to fight to get the menu, than to order, than to pay. and you wait quite a long time to get your dish in between... Price: too... More

Wonderful business dinner in the city center. Started with their famous ceasar salad, had their chicken dish as my entrée and my favorite was my dessert.

My friend and I were on our first visit to Toulouse and this restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B proprietor. It lived up to it's reputation. We had an excellent meal in very grand surroundings with attentive waiters on hand. Definitely worth a visit.

I have now visited Bibent several times and I have not been disappointed . We have had breakfast, lunch and a mid opera snack and have found the same high quality throughout . The waiters are friendly and helpful and do their best in English and other languages. The room is delightful. Go there!

I went to Le Bibent on a wet and windy Saturday afternoon for lunch. I eat at the Bibent fairly regularly as I really like the food and the lovely décor, plus you can park about 20 metres away under La Place du Capitol. The main reason I eat at the Bibent, let's be honest, is I love their "mousseline",... More
