The first thing to say is that the food tastes fine. It would be bad news if it didn’t. It’s also quite cheap. But beyond that, Le Fanfaron operates like nowhere else in this country, that I know of. All the choices are laid out...More

My wife and I were recently in Toulouse and needed to take our family of ten (including two teenagers) out for an evening meal. We were recommended to Le Fanfaron. I presumed it was going to be an expensive evening but I am delighted to...More

So many choices. Everything we tried was delicious. Fresh, tasty, what more can you ask for? Family-owned. Owners greet you like old friends. They opened up early when they saw us reading the posted menu. I think I heard mother of the chef say they...More

Wide variety. You choose what you wish to eat and the Plate is weighed to determine the price. The owners greet you as you come in and you feel right at home!

All food is served cold - you plate up the dish yourself and then heat in microwave. This does allow a large range for food to be offered without being wasted. We witnessed several regulars coming in for take-aways. Good selection of beers and our...More

Coming from North America, I am quite used to "buffet-style" pay-by-the-weight restaurants, and as such, my expectations for Le Fanfaron were not high. To say I was pleasantly surprised by my experience would be an extreme understatement. There was ample choice of food, something to...More

Very off the beaten path, but still downtown, the atmosphere is a nice little restaurant. Food is very average, lots of choice, not great, not bad. The formula is interesting, caterer style, all the choices are laided out for you to choose what, and how...More

We felt that the price was very reasonable for what we had: two plates each (1 as a starter, then a larger plate as a main course), a dessert for me, two glasses of wine followed by a bottle of wine - well, it was...More
