Tasty local dishes and friendly service

We live close to Carcassonne and took friends for a visit to the medievial center of Mirepoix. Mid June the village center still wasn't crowded however some of the restaurants around the square were fully occupied. We found a table at the Cantegrill and as it was quiet windy that day we sat down... read more

The midi formule offered soup and the plat du jour for 11 euros, not being very hungry we asked if could just have the mai course and were assured that we could. Tepid lentils and sausage and were then charged 14 euros on the grounds that it was a larger portion, very poor value for a very poor meal when... More

This restaurant is a perfect combination of ambiance, beautifully prepared local dishes and a friendly and accommodating wait staff. You simply cannot visit this charming Medieval town in southwest France without having a meal at the Cantegril. The menu includes local dishes such as foie gras and cassoulet and every one is prepared with loving care. Try the seven hour... More

We wanted to eat cassoulet and this restaurant in the picturesque central square of Mirepoix looked just the job. The starters of duck pate and jambon sec were tasty and the main course was excellent.The desserts were a let down, a not very enjoyable pannacotta. We didn't get to the restaurant until about 8.45, not late we thought, but it... More

Four of us ate lunch on Sunday during the Apple Festival. The weather was glorious and the place was buzzing. Every restaurant was full and we were lucky to find an outdoor table. There was a special 'fete' menu, of filet mignon, stuffed with chestnuts, in apple sauce with house roast potatoes and crispy red cabbage. The dessert was, unsurprisingly,... More

Frankly I am astounded reading the previous two reviews. We went the other evening and found the menu to be varied and interesting and the staff friendly and attentive. The 7 hour lamb was absolutely delicious.....falls off your fork with a subtle blending of flavors. The mousse au chocolat was one of the best I have ever tasted. The wine... More

Four of us had dinner on the last day of the Marionette Festival. This is a huge event in Mirepoix and every restaurant in town knows they can reap the riches of a large crowd. It is a time for restaurants to shine and woo potential future customers. The indifferent service at the Cantegril stood out particularly given this context.... More

We ate here on Saturday before the antiques market Sunday on the recommendation of a local host. We were astounded how bad the service was and how third-rate the food. We do not understand how others can rate this restaurant so highly. There was one really good thing -- the duck egg roll. The menu was very limited. The rest... More

Great choice of different menus. I chose Terroir and my husband Gourmands. I had Cassoulet - which is celebrated in these parts and my husband had 7 hour lamb. Very tasty and good alue - as well as charming service. Well worth the detour.
