Monsieur Rob

A friendly welcome. Food was very good. Our waitress was very understanding with our attempts to order in French , helping us out in English when we faulted. Monsieur Sam was also very friendly and helpful. All in all a very enjoyable evening and we would recommend. Thank you Fred and staff.

We were also recommended this restaurant by locals.

The waitress took the plate away without a word so we weren't sure what they intended to do. She came back... More

Lovely meal. Pork with satay sauce and beef with shallot butter. Both cooked perfectly. Trio of desserts with espresso was excellent end to our meal. Staff polite and spoke excellent English - much better than my French. Well priced for quality of food.

We had this restaurant recommended to us by the owner of the hotel where we stayed. It has a fairly unassuming exterior, but inside the atmosphere is warm and friendly.

When we asked if our greeting waitress spoke English she replied 'no. French only'. That's fine although we are used to friendlier welcomes in this region, we don't expect everyone to speak English and we get by on our slowly improving French, but when we were trying to translate the menu among ourselves it became obvious that the waitress did...

For authentic French experience in Carcassonne, this place is great.My husband and I had dinner at Chez Fred; we found it by chance but had a great time.
