Castel's cosy corner!

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... read 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

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

A bit hidden but just off the north-west corner of the big square where the Tourist Office is located, and worth the effort of finding it. Very crowded at lunch-time even in March, and mostly with locals, always a good sign. Atmosphere "authentic" and cosy, service friendly. Being in Castelnaudary we had to go for the Cassoulet (several versions offered)... More

I first visited this restaurant over a year ago whilst working in Castel. Have to say the service is excellent, the food is fantastic and the wine is perfect! As most of the other reviewers have noted the place fills up quick so get in early and they close moderately early too so book first to be sure. It's small... More

An excellent choice. We eat here as regularly as we can. Whilst the menu is not extensive and typical of the area, the food is very good. Its like sitting in someones living room and that's part of its charm. The service is always good and the waiter Nicholas is very helpful (his English is extremely good). I would recommend... More
