Had a dinner there, starter was a very unusual gazpacho combination: beetroot and raspberry with feta cheese: great taster, then had one of the best cassoulet and a super tasty raspberry tart, got also a nice local wine. bill came out around 50 eur which is an outstanding for the quality of the meal. Service was great too. Highly recommended!!!

We ate here based on a search for "best cassoulet in Carcassone". I have no basis for saying that it is the best, but it was certainly delicious, as was the duck confit. We didn't want to leave the area without trying those two traditional foods, and were fortunate to get to do it at this local establishment run by... More

We ate here recommended by the owner of our b&b (Patrick) and we found a true local restaurant ran by two lovely ladies. The menu is short, the food is simple, ingredients local, service friendly, we were made to feel very welcome. We had three classic dishes cassoulet, duck confit & creme brulee all delicious and not expensive washed down... More

Le Trivalou is a lovely small restaurant just up the slope from the "old bridge". We found the menu offered a good selection, and after having eaten in other places the quality was as good if not better than some which struggled to justify their high prices. We found the service very good and friendly ( they didn't laugh out... More

We hit Le Trivalou on our way to Carcassonne medieval city and had a good lunch when it was needed. Local speciality is the cassoulet, a stew with duck leg and sausage with beans. An interesting traditional course, glad to have tasted it, but I would not have it again too soon. Fried fish was accepted by our seafood expert.... More

This is what you hope to find in France and so often don't - a backstreet resto that feels like an extension of the family kitchen. The welcome is warm, the food simple and delicious, the wine well priced and local, the surroundings simple. We had an excellent meal, and experience. But beware. If you go for the (wonderful) cassoulet... More

We would not have found this place but for tripadvisor and are so glad we did. It is very small, just six tables outside and probably a similar number inside. A short but perfect menu! Very reasonable decent wine. Friendly and efficient service. We enjoyed this more than a meal the previous evening at twice the price! Highly recommended.

The food was simple but very well done. The menu is not expansive but what they do is excellent as is the service. It's not a large place so at weekends you may need to book. We went on a Sunday night and there were tables available. Very reasonable prices - great place not to be missed. Creme brûlée with... More

A reseration is recommended as they aren't open every day and can get very busy. As soon as you sit down you will realise why they are so busy, the service and the food are excellent. We both had the Cassoulet and thought it the best we'd ever had. Not to be missed.

On a recommendation from our guesthouse we booked for dinner here and were not disappointed. Run by 2 ladies, one serving one cooking, we had an amazing example of the local speciality, cassoulet - a fantastic stew containing beans, sausage, duck and pork. We had salads to start which were also great and the stew was delicious and not too... More
