This family run operation clicks on all cylinders. The kitchen run by dad (Jean Claude) puts out marvelous food -especially cassoulet. In this case we are talking about the pork, sausage, chicken and white beans variety. The escargot appetizer was served over a fluffy pastry crust in a delightful cream sauce. My home made ice cream with almonds and nuts... More

Carcassonne, Toulouse, and Castelnaudary each produce their own distinct version of cassoulet. Having visited Carcassonne and Toulouse prior to our permanent move to the region, only Castelnaudary remained. Le Tirou on the main road into town is highly rated on tripadvisor and it led our list. It's a curious place with odd, slightly chintzy furnishings that embellish otherwise standard restaurant... More

We've made going to Castelnaudary to eat cassoulet an annual event, but have never come here before. What a delight it was. The cassoulet (as well as the pidgeon that my partner had) were truly excellent, and the owners and staff very warm and friendly. We plan to go back in the warmer weather when we can enjoy the garden.

The food is very good and this place is clealy an Anti-McDo restaurant. If you're looking for a gastronomic meal, a place where you can take your time and savour your meal ( and why not a home made cassoulet ), I advise you to go there. Plus, if the weather is nice, you can take your meal in the... More

First, let me say we did not have reservations and we showed up at 2:00pm (which is the time most restaurants close in France). Second, I did not think the restaurant had any obligation to take us in. With that said, the owner received us with pure dismissal, simply stating they were full and the kitchen closed. We clearly were... More

We had an excellent dinner here. The owners (mother and son) were attentive and friendly. The food was very good and a step up from the basic cuisine we've had elsewhere in the region. Unfortunately the wine we ordered was corked but without a moment's hesitation they whisked the bottle away and said even if it wasn't off they'd exchange... More

My partner and I visited in the week for lunch. The owners are very friendly and the younger staff very polite and obliging. Most of the dishes are freshly made on the premises. We had smoked salmon that was very good. The rest of the meal was nice but nothing special. Don't expect haut cuisine. A very nice lunch but... More

We took a 50 minute drive to Castelnaudry from where we were staying specifically to have lunch at Le Tirou and to try the cassoulet. We were so glad we did. The cassoulet was rich and delicious and the best I tried in our week+ in this region. The pork main was also excellent. The family who run the restaurant... More
