La Forge is a restaurant from another world. It’s a restaurant set in a pretty red brick building in a small village twenty minutes out of Toulouse. The tables are set around a huge fireplace. It’s altogether a rather nice place.

Cooking is very traditional southern French: Expect foie gras, duck, and so on (their foie gras in particular is excellent). Prices are very reasonable, with dinner set menus around 20EUR.

It’s only open on friday night, saturaday lunch and dinner, and sunday lunch. Cards are not accepted, so come with cheque books or cash.
