I've eaten at this restaurant many times. . It's an absolutely beautiful setting : "how you expect a French restaurant to be" . The food is always impeccable and sticks to French classics done very well. Last time I was there the service was a bit below the level of everything else, but I have... read more

We ate here twice. The first dinner was very good, the 2nd dinner not as good. The 2nd dinner was a set menu (Christmas Menu) and 75 Euros. As it was a pre-set menu I was expecting it to be really good as the restaurant didn't have any guess work in preparing the meals, everybody was having the same, but... More

Beautiful space in an old-fashioned, florid Empire style. The cassoulet Montalbanais was well done, but too much and heavy. Dessert with a lot of cream, so that overall effect of meal was very rich. Service was efficient, but brusque.

One can't not be impressed by the interior of the restaurant but service was terribly slow, at times simply rude (call it French customer orientation) and despite the nice food we left dissatisfied.

Wonderful food! Everyone in my group was very impressed by the quality of the food. The meat is very tender and juicy. I found the portion sizes to be just right. It costs a bit more than the average restaurant, but it's definitely worth it!

Very nice decor. Would benefit from Creme Brulee on the menu. Christian Constant knows his field. Convenient to Capitole.

I travel somewhat frequently to Toulouse, and I always come back to this place. It's a beautiful restaurant, with very professional service, and always wonderful food. You cannot say that is I is inexpensive, but For me it's always money well spent! One additional thing, portions are just the right size for me. Not big, so you end up feeling... More

The wow is really for the décor: a stunning, over-the-top Belle Epoque room, chandeliers and gilt everywhere, gorgeous colours, huge mirrors and paintings. Worth visiting for that reason alone! But the food is very good too: French classics cooked to perfection. There's nothing inventive or original about the food, it's just classic bourgeois cuisine, well presented and flavourful, Eating a... More

My husband and I wanted to end our three week vacation in France with a high-end meal cooked by a top chef. An acquaintance recommended this restaurant, ad as it was walking distance from our hotel we made a reservation. It seems that most poor reviews of restaurants are do to anger at poor service. Here, the service was superb.... More
