Went here based on reviews. My husband and I went for different cuts and asked for medium rare. Both were perfectly cooked. Lovely cuts of meat and well rested. Go well with the accompanying jacket potato. Quite expensive but good quality. Service is very slow and it took about 20 minutes to get our wine after ordering it. Would recommend... More

What a Steak. melt in your mouth have been to Carcassonne many times but never dined at this restaurant. it has been recommended on various occasions though. the service was fantastic, and the quality of the food was way beyond the cost of the meal. you can watch the steak being cooked which adds to the theatre of the experience....

Short walk from Hotel de Soleil Terminus. By canal. Nice food and quite busy for a Monday. Did not give it 5 stars as service was a little slow and waitress forgot a few things. Would go back.

From the moment we sipped the velvety Minervois Chateau La Grave Expression we were toast. A raging fire greets one as this is the grill that the chef will works miracles with his personally picked seafood and meats that he procures locally. I have already learned to pass on plats du jour as the foods are far too rich. My... More

Over the past few years I have walked past this establishment on many occasions - this evening my wife and I finally dined there and discovered what we had been missing all those years. We had a thoroughly pleasant relaxing evening. If you want excellent grilled meats (salmon is also on the menu) cooked in front of your eyes then... More

We had never been to Carcassonne before so looked on Trip Advisor for good places to eat, La Grande Bouffe looked like a good place to eat especially with the open fire cooking. We booked for dinner on the last night of our stay and we were not disappointed, there was a 3 course menu which looked very inviting and... More

My starter was delicious salad with a cheese and serrano ham on toasted bread. Surprisingly the... More

I am a regular traveller to France and have sampled steak + cote de beuf on many many occasions! sometimes at significant cost. I am usually disappointed its fair to say. Having read reviews about Grand Buffet, including from a "Texan", this was a must try location for us. Entrecôte was superb ! Chef sources his meats in Narbonne, a... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant and booked a table for our large group - 6 adults and 3 young children. The children loved their steak and baked potatoes (I haven't seen my daughter and son clean their plates in a restaurant before). Adults ordered a variety of things from the set menu - steak and salmon were the favourites. We... More

We were some of the first to arrive, so benefitted from some fairly prompt service. I could see as the evening continued though that many others were coming to fill the other tables. We had one of the Menus, however can't remember exactly how much. I do remember though that it was great value for good service and excellent food.... More
