I went to Le Bibent based on the suggestions I had gotten from locals I was meeting with while in Toulouse. I tried their coquille Saint-Jacques and a plate of foie gras, and it was absolutely stellar. The service was a bit slow even though I had made sure to arrive early for the night (8pm when people usually have... More

This Belle Époque grand café had always been the power table of Toulouse. It was here that Jean Jaurès wrote articles for La Dépêche; politicians pontificated at these tables and for the great and good it was the place to be seen. More than 30 years ago Le Bibent's interior was classified as a national monument. On a previous visit... More

The ambiance, the service, and the food, of course, are fantastic. And if I was planning to assassinate Austrian royalty in the early 20th century, this is where I'd have lunch! Sorry for the lame historical reference, but look it up. No matter, Le Bibent is a great place and you can wander around the square after dinner.

So... The location is fabulous. The terrace is lovely even if the lighting is a bit stark at night. Food was definitely very good and not expensive compared to location. The management of staff is a bit chaotic. We were seen by five different servers but still needed to chase for things and remind them of things they'd forgotten. The... More

We were there 2 years ago and it seems to be a established value in Toulouse. The menu selection seemed to be somewhat smaller than it was but everything else was equal. Impressive dining room, great atmosphere, friendly, efficient and humorous staff, excellent food, good value.

We ate lunch outside in a somewhat cool weather that calls for comfort food. We ordered veal paupiette, cassoulet and chocolate tart. Our lunch was accompanied by a glass of a very nice Pinot Noir (even though it was the cheapest on the menu). Every dish was flavorful, comforting and filling. We are planning to go back in 3 days...

I was hoping for a pleasant evening at this well rated restaurant, it was Sunday night so limited choices. Food good, service frantic & unfriendly.

On a lovely balmy evening, our pre-booked dinner at Le Bibent was punctuated with frantic staff running between tables throwing food and glasses on to tables. Perspiration running down their backs, the staff were overworked to provide good service to too many tables unsupported by other staff. The food was absolutely superb with excellent desserts but it was just a... More

You can try every dish from the foie gras to the cassoulet or the fish or chicken if you want to make it lighter. Service is very pleasant but a bit slow. The only drawback is the lack of a good AC. It was cooler outside than inside
