A perfect harmony
Michelin-star restaurant at the heart of Toulouse’s old town
At this intimate and exclusive restaurant, awarded one Michelin star in 2019, you’re invited to enjoy a delectable moment in the cosy environment of an old 18th century townhouse, complete with a superb stone fireplace, traditional French exposed-beam ceiling and a reproduction of Caravaggio’s “Supper at Emmaus”.
Chef Thomas Vonderscher presents delightful cuisine that brings together classicism, regional tradition and more contemporary touches. He creates delicate recipes from fine products, like his signature dish, the “Pithiviers de pigeon du Quercy et foie gras” (Quercy pigeon tart and foie gras), and its accompaniments. A native of the Vosges mountains, he got his start at La Bergerie in Aragon. Passionate about cooking, this talented young chef quickly turned towards locally-sourced cuisine, which his peers have revisited and enhanced many a time. He gained valuable experience with Sébastien Chambru (Moulin de Mougins) and Jérémy Morin (Le Métropolitan in Toulouse), yet it was with Jérôme Ryon where he really realised his potential and became second-in-command at La Barbacane in Carcassonne.
When the hotel opened in September 2015, he took control of the restaurant alongside Chef Ryon. After two years full of success, he had the pleasure of creating his very own menu. His work, his discipline and his boldness were rewarded in January 2018 with a star from the Michelin Guide.
