We arrived in the evening without a reservation but were still quickly shown a table and from that point we were well looked after. This was not the cheapest meal during our stay in Carcassonne but the food was plentiful and of good quality with a nice cassoulet. No real issues at all.

I have no idea if their food is good or not but my experience of the staff was terrible. They spoke over us as we attempted to ask questions.They were rude and dismissive of my dietary requirements.

The cassoulet accompanied with a Malbec wine was very good. The restaurant was nice and waiters were very thoughtful.

we were well placed in the center of the restaurant in the sunroom. The atmosphere was nice with a harmonious decoration. The Cassoulet as meal was great but we would have expected more for the rest of the lunch. The wine from land was very good. The cheese plate was ok.

We were hoping for a nice, hot french onion soup, on a overcast rainy day. It was on the menu, but it was watery and dissappointing. The citrous salad was terrible. Try to avoid this restaurant.

Pretty good and has a varied menu .Service was quick and efficient but a liitle impersonal.Need to be careful with the English translation as two of our party had Pork stir fry - it was not stir fry as we know it. It was more like a small pork stew. The fish was good though.

Six of us came here on our last night of a holiday in Carcassonne. Meal was ok, but no better than ok considering that we had eaten splendidly elsewhere in this lovely city far more cheaply. Admittedly it was a Sunday evening, but by 10pm they wanted us out. Plenty of other places to choose from in Carcassonne.

The kitchen is efficient. The staff were friendly. The onion soup was very tasty and satisfying. The local wine was well chilled and easy to drink. The decor was modern, nothing fancy. There was no expectation for a tip.

We are a couple staying a few nights in different locations across France. This was the worst food we have had. salad with. No taste no dressing and mainly lettuce.
