C'est fantastique!!! Imagine, a warm July evening. It's late and you find yourself outside a restaurant, looking at yet another menu. Some other 'foreigners', just leaving, recommend the place wholeheartedly, so you mount the stairs to the 'salon' on the first floor.
A warm welcome greets you and you are shown to a table, your only slight regret being that you weren't early enough to enjoy a table on the balcony. The decor is definitely 'fin de ciecle' and Colette and Toulouse Lautrec would have fitted in perfectly. The wallpaper of blowsy roses and gorgeous classical statuary is perfect. If you are into 'shabby chic', it's worth coming here just for some authentic inspiration!
The food was wonderful and I can honestly say that 'Eau de Folles' produces the most tender, succulent mussels to be found anywhere - no mean feat!
To be honest, it was over a year ago - a birthday celebration for myself and my son - and I don't remember what I ate (other than the mussels!), only that it was 'divine'. Perhaps it was because of the occasion and the gentle, exciting atmosphere of Toulouse or perhaps it was because of the orgy of 'people-watching' I was able to indulge in, but 'Eau de Folles' will remain in my memory as an experience I will never forget.
The service was charming, the prices reasonable and the whole was an experience I would recommend to anyone.
Welcome to ciao my dear. I am Nan and hope to read more from you very soon.

Good review but could do with some more info to gain higher ratings. Take a look at other reviews to get an idea of the level of info that is needed to gain higher ratings. ~ Em. x

Welcome to Ciao. This has the makings of a pretty good review (and is of interest to me since I have a visit planned to Toulouse) - well-written and personal. But it really needs more info (when open, how to find it, what else is on the menu and prices) for a higher rating. Ditto Lin's comment below (to reach someone's guestbook, first click on their name, then scan along the tabs on their homepage). Duncan
