I never like to leave a "terrible" review for any small business but sorry, this deserved it. Salad terrible, main dish cold despite waiting an hour between courses and service staff obviously stressed yet the place was not even half full..... shame, hope it improves.

Ate here because we wanted something light and weren't disappointed. Lovey tapas, especially the Gambas, good service and comfy sofas with a great view of the castle. We also liked that it was away from the main square and had some character.

I did not have very high expectations of this restaurant, especially given the fact that we decided on the 12 euro menu, but I was pleasantly surprised. The starter tart and salad was small but tasty and the main of duck confit and fries was really nice. The dessert of fromage blanc was simple but good. The view of the... More

While canal botaing along the Canal du Midi, we stopped a day in Carcassonne and had our evening meal in this restaurant. We'd been recommended to go to another nearby, but it was closed that day, so on spec we chose le Creneau, and were not dissapointed. We wanted to try Cassoulet, a specialty dish of this area, and they... More

This restaurant is opposite the Adelaide which we'd eaten at a few days earlier. Whilst the Adelaide was very good, this place is anything but. Amateurish but not unfriendly service, but the food was awful. I couldn't eat the cassoulet. My wife's duck and fries was poor. And we couldn't eat the bread it was so dry. The wine was... More

We ate at this restaurant last week and did what you are supposed never to do eat, in an empty place. Why this place wasn't packed I'll never now. The menu du jour was great value at 12 euros for 3 courses with a choice of two items for every course. Everything was homemade even the frites which tasted lovely.... More

Set in a beautiful St Jean square, we were a bit put off that this restaurant wasn't as busy as the one across the square. But we are so glad we ate here. The friendly family service was exceptional (including free liqueur at the end of the meal) and the food was very good, too. Excellent cassoulet and duck dishes.... More

This is a small restaurant with good atmosphere, good service and very good food. The serrano ham, which was really nice, was cut freshly on a bacon slicer which stood in the middle of the restaurant. We had three courses and a very nice bottle of Minervois for 56.5 euros. In my opinion the best value in the city.

A fabulous meal in a wonderful setting. This little restaurant has a very interesting menu & is somewhere to try something a little different from the norm
