On arrival the restaurant was empty. By the time we left it was full to bursting. Some menu items were unavailable. But the excellent food that arrived was superb. House red was very good too.

Finally my quest for a good cassoulet is over! I had many cassoulet up to now in Carcassone and was really never satisfied. So we stopped in Castelnaudary , "the capital of cassoulet " and asked a local person to propose a restaurant. Au Petit Gazouilli is a familly restaurant that serves homemade food. The cassoulet is prepared by "la... More

Very charming people, but average, basic French fare. The cassoulet was insipid and disappointing and the other dishes (although served in ample portions), were not impressive. Cheap enough (including the wine), but really only for locals looking for a good, simple feed-up. We were certainly the centre of attention being the only English group in a packed restaurant!. Fun, but... More

This meal felt like a million and one other tourist restaurant meals we've had. The cassoulet was ok, duck was average at best and the salmon was a bit odd! Ok for just a random meal on holiday but nothing special!

This was the only restaurant we could find which was open on Monday evening, so I called and booked a table. Its a small restaurant with a small number of tables, so we were lucky to get in. We had a very mixed bag of meals - out of four people there was one "Excellent, I'd go back again" from... More

It's a cosy wee restaurant, with tables close together but not cramped. Pleasant atmosphere , and friendly staff. Lunchtime customers filled the place. A wee bit warm inside but the overhead fans were reasonably successful in keeping us cool. Parking was OK. Family run and well worth a visit if you're in the area.We had the €16 menu which offered...

The restaurant is small and it was packed the night we went, they were turning people away so you need to book. They have the menu in English and the waiting staff were very helpful. Good food, reasonable prices and a real buzz. Fun experience

Very good family run, cassoulet is really good, better than some others with higher recomendations in this town, including by a tv series. Follow the locals, the best recommendation.

Less than a week after our first visit, we unexpectedly found ourselves back in Castelnaudary for lunch. The first time through, on a Thursday, Au Petit Gazouillis was closed. Tuesday? Open. A small sign along the main downtown drag in Castelnaudary points to Au Petit Gazouillis, tucked out of the way on a side street. It's a funky, family operation... More
