Lunchtime (not Mondays) relaxed atmosphere plus being above the market where all the fresh produce is actually "on your doorstep" means some great food is served here. Very difficult to find but look for a solid 'fire door' at the north western end of the market building and you can see the outside terrace for the individual restaurants from the street. take your time to study each place and decide. For meat you can eat at http://www.lelouchebem.com/ ... on his web site the owner explains that Louchebem is a sort of market slang meaning the 'boucher' so expect some good meat dishes here. Also on his web site he gives the Menu with many different meaty dishes - why not try the Toulouse sausage? Or if you are several then how about Côte de boeuf !

We missed all the activity of the morning market-which I have been told is wonderful-I think Rick Stein may have been in there on one of his food safaris looking for Toulouse sausage- but we walked into a rather drab utilitarian building with market stalls shutting down. There are no obvious signs to the restaurants upstairs-but we found them and it was a hive of activity. There were hundreds of people in a number of restaurants-but Le Louchebem seemed to be the favourite. It was packed and the only way to get a table was to attract the attention of the barman to say we needed a table for six and a half dozen beers while we were waiting. Turnover was swift as the lunchtime crowd had to go back to work. We were not in a hurry-but it didn't take long before we had a table- the waitress was very friendly and we enjoyed the meals and the location very much. "Le Boucher " obviously means meat..and the steaks were excellent. Wine and beer is on tap-very inexpensive..If you are in the area....don't mis it..
