Mixed opinion I must say. It's friendly and nice evne if a bit small. Food is really zxcellent and not too pricy. The ide of pay what you eat is original. So why do you want us to use microwave oven to warm this good...More

Simply ,keeping food heated for a few hours during the service dries out the food and leads to a lot of waste.

The first thing to say is that the food tastes fine. It would be bad news if it didn’t. It’s also quite cheap. But beyond that, Le Fanfaron operates like nowhere else in this country, that I know of. All the choices are laid out...More

My wife and I were recently in Toulouse and needed to take our family of ten (including two teenagers) out for an evening meal. We were recommended to Le Fanfaron. I presumed it was going to be an expensive evening but I am delighted to...More

Wide variety. You choose what you wish to eat and the Plate is weighed to determine the price. The owners greet you as you come in and you feel right at home!

All food is served cold - you plate up the dish yourself and then heat in microwave. This does allow a large range for food to be offered without being wasted. We witnessed several regulars coming in for take-aways. Good selection of beers and our...More

Weird concept, no service, it's self service and the bill amount will be according to the weight of the food you choose. No idea how the chef is doing the total. And we have had to bring plates on a table beside the kitchen. Hot...More

Having lived here for four years, this place is a regular for us. Alix, Gilbert & Laura put on a superb spread of very original dishes from the buffet - matched with excellent beers and wine, not to mention dessert. At a price that won't...More

Coming from North America, I am quite used to "buffet-style" pay-by-the-weight restaurants, and as such, my expectations for Le Fanfaron were not high. To say I was pleasantly surprised by my experience would be an extreme understatement. There was ample choice of food, something to...More

Very off the beaten path, but still downtown, the atmosphere is a nice little restaurant. Food is very average, lots of choice, not great, not bad. The formula is interesting, caterer style, all the choices are laided out for you to choose what, and how...More
