This is simply the ideal restaurant. It sits right on the Place Capitol in the centre of historic Toulouse. The bustle of life goes by as one sits on the comfortable terrace eating delicious food and drinking local wines. The terrace is very attractive with shaded tables. The menu is extensive and service seems to be amazingly fast considering how... More

Had a family meal , nothing very exciting just average . Wouldn't rush back to it. Seems like a lot of alternative restaurants in this area which I would check out instead

We stopped here for lunch on an unusually bright and sunny day for mid-October - very pleasant sitting outside. For starter we both had the ham and melon which was amply proportioned and tasty. We followed with the calves liver which was gorgeous. These were from different set lunch menus but that was no trouble to the waiter. No charge... More

Visited the les arcades on the 17th of October with a work colleague It's in the square which is really nice however the staff are arrogant and rude I don't actually think they are trained in the restaurant business. Firstly we ordered water with gas. Guess what came, tap water I told the waiter and he apologised. We ordered a... More

Facing the Toulouse Capitole and a large open square, this is quite impressive place. Brasserie in the French tradition with indoor comfortable sitting and a sprawling outdoor terrace. The service is rather good and efficient and when it’s full, the staff is up to the task! The food is good, some orders are great, some are average (I had dinner... More

A pleasant setting where you could talk or watch the world go by in the square. Moules in wine and frites, but sadly over cooked and hairs left on most of the Moules. Cafe Gourmand for dessert was much better and was a super range of tartlettes. Hard to score this as one dish was poor and the other was... More

We stopped because of the nice venue and fabulous location. Ended up having dinner. The place is highly recommendable, menus great and waiters attend in a role model way. Of course, the location adds to make such evenings very pleasant ones.

We stopped here for some lunch and didn't really realise how expensive it was compared to other restaurants just a little off the square. Our French is not great so we got sucked into buying a bottle of water rather than table water at 7€. We also got sold a half bottle of wine for almost 16€. The food was... More

I got a nice Moules Frites in this restaurant overlooking the Capitole. It was a nice atmosphere and above all the traditional muscles were nice, although I would have liked it better if it was marinated in seafood sauce along with other seafood ingredients but they do not serve that form. The service was really cordial and respectful.

We had lunch here on Saturday. Should have realised - typical poor quality, overpriced tourist food on the main square........ The lasagnes were bizarrely sweet, tepid and a strange red colour. The cassoulet was the strangest cassoulet we've ever had in France - really greasy, with strange tasting breadcrumbs on top (as show in the main photo - they must... More
