    Southern French cuisine with medieval touches

    • Pary

    Auberge du Tranchoir is a restaurant that couldn't have asked for a better location than Rue du May in the historical centre of Toulouse. Proudly sporting the title of Maître Restaurateur (Master Restaurant Owner), the chef invites you to savour medieval specialities made from fresh, completely homemade produce including bread and cold meats. Sliced bread was used as a plate in the Middle Ages which gives the restaurant its name.

    This restaurant offers a constant opportunity for rediscovery, as different menus are drawn up according to the seasons, as well as the chef's availability and mood. Every month, a themed evening brought to life by a storyteller or musicians steeps the restaurant in a particularly festive atmosphere. It offers you a tasty trip back in time from its large tables to servers in period costumes, and from its horn-shaped chalices to feasts flowing with hydromel (a fermented honey drink).

    Lokalizacja: 1 bis Rue du May, 31000 Toulouse, France

    Otwarte: Tuesday–Saturday from 12 pm to 2 pm and 7.30 pm to 11.30 pm
