This experience was one of the finest gastronomic and entertaining evenings possible! The host is a talented musician, and his wife gracious and welcoming. It is a small place - rather like a home in its ambiance, but the food is magnificent. The prix fixe is amazingly reasonable, and the wines regional and delicious. They only ask you tell them if you have any strong dislikes when you make the reservation, and then you are in their capable hands for the entire five courses. The pasta dish was incredible -I could have licked the plate. You must reserve way in advance, as they are only open 3 nights a week, and have perhaps 10 tables. The music interludes are wonderful. Cannot say enough positive things about this gem!
All in one. Restaurant for all your senses. You will get entertainment as well as very tasty italian food as the owner is a great cook and a truly talented classical guitarist. Will come back there as soon as possible!
The amazing food combined with the music, is without doubt an unmissable experience. we have been back three times since! and are never disappointed! such a lovely team who gives wonderful service. book in advance!!
I booked this restaurant for my husband's birthday as we were visiting Toulouse. How lucky! We had a fabulous evening with good food and fantastic classical guitar music played by Santy-the chef/owner. His wife Elise was wonderfully attentive and took the time to explain each course. We even had a thank you (by text) from them the next day, when it should be us thanking them for a truly magical evening. Quite a small restaurant and only open for a few evenings each week so definitely worth booking early. Would love to go back one day!!
We knew the owner/chef played guitar, but we were not expecting such a virtuoso performance. Performing classical music including Verdi and Puccini with a deft hand and amazing nuance. Certainly the performance was an unexpected treat.
The main meal included several dishes utilizing the wild fennel of Sicily. An asparagus soup was first, then pork tenderloin with rosemary. A plate of oranges made a nice small desert, but the limoncello completed the meal.
Overall it was a delightful evening with good food, good drink, good service and an unexpectedly delightful performance.
This was my favourite experience in Toulouse. The evening started with canapés. There was then a 40 minute classical guitar recital from the owner which was wonderful. We then ate a delicious 3 course meal. The food is Sicilian based. I cannot recommend this format too highly and would certainly return.
Santy is the proprietor and the chef and the guitarist. He is extraordinarily friendly and welcoming, which attribute combines with the lovely classical guitar and the excellent food and wines inspired by his family's native Sicily to make a singular and memorable experience. If you are a classical guitar aficionado try to challenge his repertoire: it is not small. And the price is right, in fact a bargain: since the dinner is priced moderately and the experience is free.
En toute sincérité, nous sommes d’abord venus pour retrouver les saveurs de la Sicile plutôt que pour le concert. La cuisine et le service étaient parfaits, à la hauteur de nos attentes d’amateurs avertis de cuisine italienne. La partie musicale est assurée par le chef qui est un vrai virtuose de la guitare classique. On a passé une soirée formidable.
Romantique, charme, calme et paisible. Santy est un homme attentionnée, chaleureux et un excellent musicien. J'ai vraiment adoré sa musique, j'ai voulus qu'il ne s'arrête pas. Les plats sont originaux et délicieux . Bon rapport qualité prix. On a passé une soirée inoubliable. je recommande fort.
Accueil convivial et chaleureux, le chef/ musicien transmet son enthousiasme à ces convives. Le résultat est que le contenu de l'assiette est dégusté avec saveur. L'entracte musicale est la bienvenue pour tous les mélomanes.
(Translated by Google) Super concept ... Santy is a virtuoso on guitar ... Subjugated by his talent. The cuisine is refined with flavours that transports us to Sicily. Very good. To recommend ... Thank you
(Original) Super concept... Santy est un virtuose à la guitare... Subjuguée par son talent. La cuisine est raffinée avec des saveurs qui nous transporte en Sicile. Très bien. A conseiller... Merci
It's just atypical as it should be, warm welcome see cozy, local Italian products (hearty meal) I do not say more because it is good to be surprised by the talent of the master of the places .... Good evening to Toulouse
