Les Caves de la Maréchale
Les Caves de la Marechale restaurant lies in the very heart of ancient Toulouse, in historic vaults built on even older ruins. These were the cellars of 13th century Domincan priory that survived many turns of fortune until forming this charming restaurant of exposed bricou, classical statuary, modern, comfortable seating, white table linens and effective pools of light. The menu is traditional Toulousian broadened with global influences all presented in beautiful arrangements in gastronomic style. There are dishes like aubergine caviar with pesto and parmesan, classic cassoulet in the local style, and famously naughty desserts. The service is fine, but it’s the magical surroundings that make Les Caves unforgettable.

Le Palladia
Palladia Restaurant in Toulouse’s four-star Hotel Palladia enjoys a terrific location: near the airport yet convenient to downtown. The hotel is a futuristic palace of shiny glass and impressive spaces, yet the restaurant has a more comfortable, luxurious décor that continues onto the large umbrellaed terrace. The menu, under the direction of chef Damien Mouchague, blends innovation with authentic southern cuisine in dishes like melon soup with strawberries in verbena ice, and filet of St Pierre with caramelised mandarin sauce. The terrace is a true delight in sunny weather and the service is warm and professional.

Michel Sarran
Michel Sarran restaurant in Toulouse’s charming old town is a townhouse eaterie that boasts a pair of Michelin stars, understated warmth and style, and the most famous gastronomic name in the city. Michel’s wife Francoise greets you and shows you to the bubbling, modern ground floor dining room, the leafy terrace, or one of the more subdued, romantic first floor dining rooms. Sarran has made his name with ambitious, subtle gastronomy focussing on the best regional, seasonal ingredients: warm foie gras soup with Belon oysters, wild salmon cooked and cru with green curry emulsion and soba noodles and shellfish, chicken and egg with Aquitaine caviar. The lunchtime Saveurs menu is a steal. Wines and service are superb and the amuse-bouche delightful.

Le Si Bémol
The Si Bemol restaurant in Toulouse looks right out onto the Place Dupuy and the Halle aux Grains, one of Europe’s most illustrious concert halls. That makes the Si Bemol – it means B flat – perfect for pre- or post-concert meals, as well as romantic and business meals any time. This magical eaterie offers excellent regional cuisine in a relaxed, refined setting in a series of dining rooms that vary from bright and creamy to exposed-brick elegance. The menu is refined, too, featuring dishes like foie gras of Si Bemol a l’ancienne with grilled toast ‘a volonte’, which means as much as you can eat, thyme-roasted lamb with its own jus and confit garlic, and soft very dark chocolate cake with Arabica mousse. The wine list is admirably regional – okay, there’s a Sancerre – and reasonably priced. This is some Toulousians favourite restaurant.

L'Assiette Rose
If you're looking for an intimate bistro with an authentic French atmosphere, you simply must stop by L'Assiette Rose on rue des Blanchers in Toulouse. This charming restaurant – with pink walls, mirrored columns, fresh flowers and sentimental artworks – has a cosy turn-of-the-century art deco ambience that will make you want to curl up with a good bottle of French red and never leave. Located only moments from the banks of the Garonne, L'Assiette specialises in traditional southwest French cuisine, and we love the snails sautéed with onions, parsley, garlic, tomatoes and white wine; the Plate Rose – smoked salmon, lobster and prawns served with seafood sauce; and the duck served in a rich and creamy foie gras gravy.

Le Kalinka
For a memorable night of fabulously kitsch cabaret, head on down to Le Kalinka in the rue des Teinturiers in Toulouse Saint-Cyprien. We love this moody little venue, and with its dimmed lights, bentwood chairs and pale pink tablecloths Le Kalinka is the perfect place for birthdays, office parties and kooky celebrations. The restaurant offers special menus for groups of up to 8 and 25 people, and the floor show is an extravagant mix of cabaret, circus acts and dancing with 160 costume changes per hour. The menu at Le Kalinka is quintessentially French, and the wonderful staff are always on hand to help you to enjoy a spectacular night of sequins, seafood and sauvignon blanc.
