Le Bibent is popular because of its stunning decor - all gilt and painted walls and ceilings and it is quite magnificent and definitely worth a visit for this reason. However, the food does not quite match these peerless surroundings. It wasn't bad - it just wasn't wonderful. Perhaps we should have been warned by the fact that the menus... More

Everything was absolutely delicious. Great staff. Will definitely come back to this restaurant when I return to Toulouse!

We were looking forward to eating again in this revamped restaurant, but were disappointed. We had elected to eat indoors, as the weather was a tad threatening, and the first impressions were not particularly favourable. The entrance is a long corridor, and as we waited for someone to acknowledge our arrival, we found we were in the way of the... More

Three of us at here - we had a table outside and enjoyed an aperitif while watching the people go by. We shared an entree of terrine which was delicious and ample for each of us to sample enough. I had the pork with macaroni and grilled cos lettuce which was just as I would have wished; my cousin the... More

This was our first dinner in Toulouse. The restaurant has a gorgeous interior (go inside to check it out!), but we elected to eat outside to enjoy the long, warm summer evening and see the Place du Capitole. The food was excellent as was service, especially given that we are English-speakers and needed some help. We would definitely recommend this... More

Went to Toulouse for a bite of lunch, a bit of a wander and a nice dinner... We were recommended to this restaurant, housed in a historic and rather wonderful building, by a native Toulousain friend... and we were not disappointed. We sat at (slightly difficult to mount) chairs at a window table...and watched as the locals ran from a... More

Great food, great service, great ambiance and great value. I had a poached egg with herbs, tomatoes, bacon and croutons as a starter which was perfect, a great pork belly main course and strawberry slice of heaven. The restaurant is stunning, and even on a rainy day the views to the square interesting. Absolutely recommended!

We went to Le Bibent in a group of 10 people to celebrate a friend's birthday. It was a perfect setting for the event with its high ceilings, impressive dining room in which the walls are lined with mirrors and gold trim. Le Bibent is located off of the Place du Capitol and is the restaurant of the top French... More

Went a second time with two friends, one of whom wanted to try the resto of a Topchef. The service was okay - the menu was clearly explained but you have the impression they are pushing you towards ordering certain dishes. We had the feeling that once they realised you weren't going to spend over 100 euros, they lost interest.... More

A classic restaurant with really good and attentive service. Despite the central location which guarantees a steady flow of visitors, the place is far from being a "tourist trap". The classic menu is well executed, though not necessarily exciting. The pork chop I had as a main course was nothing short of amazing, though.
