Come for the early sitting at this little bistro on the edge of town, specializing in gastronomy from the Toulouse region, and you'll often discover the dining room filled with English and Japanese tourists (the waiters speak English automatically). The €28 or €32 multicourse dinner menu may account for the restaurant's popularity—there are two, sometimes three, dinner sittings each night. Of six courses, at least four are likely to be fine—but not all the chef's
ideas work, such as warm oysters in herb butter that fail to preserve the taste of the sea. Waiters plunk even the higher-priced bottles of wine on the table without waiting for the customer to swill and slurp. Still, these problems seem to be minor judging by the ever-crowded tables.
