We were staying in Carcassonne, and felt like a good steak so I checked with Trip Advisor and found a review for La Grande Bouffe; the reviewer said was the best steak he had had in France. So we went. The place more than lived up to its reputation and my wife unequivocally stated it was the best steak she... More

Just down from the Pont Marengo in Carcassonne is this great restaurant, family run, clean pleasant and welcoming. Overlooking the Canal du Midi it offers great starters but the best of the menu is the steaks, brilliant selection of wines. No more need be said. Bon appetite !!

We booked a table for 14 and turned up half an hour later. The restaurant was quiet and the service a bit laid back but when the food came it was really very good. It is a family affair with dad cooking up a storm on the wood fired grill and mum (with a bit if occasional help from her... More

This is only 2 minutes walk off the main streets and was a great meal. It is well deserving of the positive comments in other reviews, the steaks were sublime in quality and in the way they were cooked. Great to see the chef at work and the large coal fire on which he cooks really warms the dining area.... More

Visited Carcassonne for a week last year, and ate at a few nice places, but whilst waiting for a flight yesterday, we popped in to La Grande Bouffe and had really our best meal in town. The steak and brochette were incredible, plus a lovely family atmosphere. Highly recommended.

We walked in feeling like guests in somebody's home. Seated quickly, we ordered a variety of items for our group. Every person fell silent as they enjoyed gorgeous steaks and sumptuous prawns. Even my two year old daughter lost the power of speech while she worked through her dinner. Go there, sit back, enjoy!

Tried this place on our first night in Carcassonne. The owners were very accommodating as it was late when we dined. However, not once did we feel rushed. I had the brochettes and the meat melted in your mouth. We returned two nights later and the quality was still excellent and we weren't disappointed. The meat and jacket potato were... More

Very quiet on a Monday evening, we chose from the €20 set menu. Excellent salads, tasty mains and good afters. I understand why other reviewers have commented on the service, I could see that it may get very erratic when the place gets busy but we have no complaints. Would definitely go back.

We were recommended to visit this restaurant by a fellow boater on the Canal du Mid, and we were not disappointed. Having eaten in some very exclusive places around the world I can honest say this was up there with the best for quality, the menu is very simple but that's all you need in this place, no frills dining!...
