Hello! Over the long weekend in December 2010, we spent some days in Toulouse, a city that although it was French, was quite friendly! students, tourists ... and cold, but it seemed like a welcoming city! We decided to go to dinner one day at a restaurant that had a queue the entire day ... we didn't know what they served (although from the name one could imagine) but we decided to wait in line and try it out. You go in and they ask for your drink order and what type of meat you want: that's it, the rest is fixed, a salad with lettuce and nuts and the famous steak with secret sauce, even though the peppery taste was apparent, not to mention I found a lemon seed. They give you everything on a metal tray with a metal resistance and a couple of candles in order to keep the plate hot and they give you a lot of fries on the plate (if you run out they offer you more). It was delicious ... but the desserts ... mmm. The chocolate cake I ordered was so good ,'fondant au chocolat', the best chocolate cake I've ever tasted! Good value for your money, very good! It came out to about 23 euros each if I remember correctly, we drank water for free! It's a chain restaurant, there's one in most French cities if not more places, but worth it!
Beaucoup is one of the best places for brunch in the center of Toulouse. For just about 17 euros you can eat a delicious savory dish of your choice (eggs, ham, raw or grilled mixed vegetables, baked potatoes, puff pastries, etc.) with a sweet homemade dish like pancakes with maple syrup, yogurt, pastries with jams, and more. Brunch is served from 12:00 to 16:00, Saturdays and Sundays. The staff are knowledgeable and helpful.
Do not be fooled by the the word Coffee in the name. We walked in completely by chance, but the Blue Moon is a full-fledged restaurant, with a small and somewhat soulless outward appearance, but offers reasonably priced meals (the lunch menu ranges from twelve to seventeen euros ) Local and casual atmosphere and good service. The Best Part: A very wide selection of draft beers. The Worst Part: The terrace is always crowded.
