In 1905, Léon Sentenac, a Toulouse figure and grand-father of the current owners founded the wine bar called « Aux caves du Père Léon » (« cellars of Père Léon »). 

More than a century later, the wine bar became a “Brasserie”, totally refurbished in 2012. The atmosphere is made of a subtle blend of modernism and family tradition and provides to this place the status of a genuinely local institution.

The simplicity of the menu is the result of our desire to share with you our passion for authentic cuisine, the one which respects the product and its producer as well.
