Eating & drinking in Toulouse

Toulouse certainly knows how to live, but it also knows how to welcome guests. Any occasion is perfect for gathering around a generously laid table at a great restaurant or wine bar. Gourmet breaks allow you to sample the products of the terroir (foie gras, smoked duck, cassoulet and Toulouse sausage, wines, cheeses...).

In the markets, outdoor or covered, you can also discover the very best regional produce as you browse the colourful stalls.

Covered markets

Tipping in Toulouse like elsewhere in France, a service charge is always included in the bill. If you are particularly pleased with the service, you may certainly leave a few extra euros on the table. But this additional tip is neither expected nor necessary. 


In & Around Toulouse

Toulouse owes its nickname of « Ville Rose » to the use of brick. Listed as a « local craft » in the south around Toulouse, it has formed part of local heritage from Antiquity to present day. It dresses the façades with warming colours, from soft pinks to the most flamboyant oranges.

Finally, so that you miss nothing of the city’s cultural richness, you should throw open the doors to its museums and explore the remarkable collections of classical and medieval art, as well as contemporary works.
