This restaurant offers great food, great service, excellent wines (they all do in France) and is in the heart of the Toulouse City center.

I have been to Le Bibent for many years, it was great just after Christian Constant did a make over, since then it has gradually gone down the drain. It has been a gradual decline, one started to notice by the lack of attention of the waiting staff, by the scruffy unironed shirts that seem to be the order of... More

Fantastic food in a great venue!! Service was impeccable! All dishes from starter to dessert were of excellent taste! Scallops were cooked to perfection, followed by pork chop (porc noir!) deliciously cooked and the chocolate tart is just divine!!!

Stunning restaurant with really helpful friendly staff. We've had many good meals in France whilst we've been travelling around, but this was exceptional. The restaurant decor was really the epitome of the Belle Époque and worth visiting even without the wonderful food and wine!

I just cannot understand how this can be as low as 73. The interior is a national treasure, literally. A magnificent example of belle epoque style. We ate here twice, and on both occasions we found the service good and the food excellent. It is not particularly cheap but we felt it represented good value. We definitely recommend it to... More

What a shame - great venue - but lousy service - the waitress was too busy to serve - so we missed out out on our ham, cheese and fresh fruit - it was suggested we should take home in a bag! - will not go back ever!

Given the location on Place du Capitole and the fantastic decor, you know you are going to pay a price, and that is perfectly acceptable. But we walked away after 3 courses, disappointed by the overall standard of the food. It is not bad, and perhaps my expectations were too high, especially on a Sunday evening, when my French friends... More

I went to Le Bibent based on the suggestions I had gotten from locals I was meeting with while in Toulouse. I tried their coquille Saint-Jacques and a plate of foie gras, and it was absolutely stellar. The service was a bit slow even though I had made sure to arrive early for the night (8pm when people usually have... More

This Belle Époque grand café had always been the power table of Toulouse. It was here that Jean Jaurès wrote articles for La Dépêche; politicians pontificated at these tables and for the great and good it was the place to be seen. More than 30 years ago Le Bibent's interior was classified as a national monument. On a previous visit... More
