Description: To the Café Cantine of Le Bon Vivre. Huguette Café Cantine is the new incarnation of the restaurant Le Bon Vivre, a gastronomic landmark in Toulouse created a quarter of a century ago by Alain and Huguette Méliet. Under the watchful eye of Huguette, and with daughter Cathy at her side, the chef puts a modern spin on regional cuisine with the emphasis on duck, farm reared pork, fresh seasonal vegetables and traditional desserts. Everyone, both in the kitchen and in the restaurant, is dedicated to serving the best of traditional Gascony cuisine, healthier than you would believe. Welcome to HUGUETTE'S, the Café Cantine which serves in two parts (lunch and dinner) and three movements (starter, main course and dessert) combining the charm of the rural kitchen with the demands of urban life.

Very good service. Started with charcuterie board to share. I had the fish of the day which was hake fresh from the coast and it was outstanding. My husband had steak and frites. The steak was flavorful and tender. Wine list reasonable. Dessert was a prune shortbread which was somewhat dry. Location pleasant viewing Pl Wilson.

I only went here because it was Sunday afternoon and the restaurant I usually go to was closed, and this was the only nearby restaurant with an acceptable rating, so Huguette it was.

The service was extremely good - the servers were very obliging and eager to help, and spoke excellent English. However, the meal was extremely disappointing and incredibly expensive - 27 euros for something that was a few mere mouthfuls, and I am a slightly-built girl with a fairly small appetite, so I can't imagine what other people with a normal appetite would have made out of this inadequately-portioned meal. The size probably would have been less of an issue if the food had been good, but it wasn't. The meat was extremely stringy and the sauce was nothing special. I also ordered a baked egg with foie gas, and it was barely a mouthful and honestly felt like a joke - that cost 8.50 euro. All in all, the whole dining experience felt like a bit of a ripoff. Spend your money somewhere else.

The restaurant was recommended by hotel staff, and it was a pleasant dinner experience, but it’s a bit crowded and we were disappointed with the food-one good dish, one not so good. Service was decent and prices were a bit high, as expected, which would have been okay if meal had been better...oh well...

All 3 of us ordered the cassoulet. For a dish that's 75% beans I thought 27 euros was a lot. It tasted more gamey than other cassoulet that we've had. It was a huge dish but some sausage in my wife's was raw. The waitress tried to explain that it wasn't raw but we know raw sausage. They took it back and grilled it. No discount offered. Avoid this dish.

We had a lovely time with a private group next to the restaurant. The restaurant is located on a nice square. First we enjoyed our time outside and after that we reserved the private room. Very nice decorated and the service was really impressive for a big group. As you can expect from the French the quality of the food was really good. Enjoyed the stake tartare very much.
