Me and my Fiancee chose to eat here after a few drinks and it was very busy which definitely isnt a bad thing as they managed to find us a table pretty much immediately. We both had the chicken burger and a drink and it came to 20 euros each which I thought was a bit much. The service was... More

Vet good food and the quantity served is overwhelming. The staff is very nice and friendly but it does take a lot of time for the food to be ready because it is very crowded all the time. But with a little patience, it is worth it. Also there is a big chance you might have to wait at the... More

Excellent steaks. It's the real test when you have a blue steak and it melts in the mouth. English menus and an English speaking waiter that helps!!

I usually don't go to places rated lower than 3, but this seemed to be nice, so I wanted to give it a try. The steak was tender, fries and green beans very good, and a lovely creme brûlée to end. I had to give it a review as the current value doesn't represent reality :)

We were in need of an early dinner before many of the restaurants in the area were open. I'm somewhat wary of chain restaurants but Hippopotamus did a good job. Nothing fancy...cold beer, nicely cooked steaks and quick and friendly service. I'd be happy to eat here again

My friends and me spent a week at Euro 2016 and started in Toulouse. We went here purely by chance and were greeted by a very friendly waitress who was very patient with her English guests relying on long lost French from forty years ago! We had a mixture of dishes two us had steak brochettes which were beautifully cooked... More

This family-style restaurant offered a decent choice of food at reasonable prices. Some restaurants were over-priced - this was not. Staff were good and well organised although there could have been more. Nothing special but reasonable, particularly for families.

We found this place while visiting Toulouse for the European Football Championships. The menu is strong on beef dishes but I chose the fish and chips offering which was excellent. The rest of the party were delighted with their choice from the range of beef dishes. The restaurant has a selection of beers including bottles of Grimbergen, a familiar Belgian... More

The food was really nice ( I had the fish and chips ) and it was really close to the centre. Sadly as soon as we finished our desserts and started to watch one of the TV's one of the waiters came over and put the bill on our table without us asking. My Dad and I found this slightly... More

Look. I'm a man, travelling for business lots of days away from home. I struggle and strain and make sure I eat varied and healthy food and that I take advantage of any gym or pool that comes my way. But sometimes I need to eat something nice and simple. And hippopotamus ticks all the right boxes. Choose a nice... More
