Description: This place was recommended by a local as THE place to get a good steak in Carcassonne. We were the only english speakers in what was obviously a very local place. Steaks are cooked over a fire in a corner of the restaurant. Food was not expensive, but boy was it good. This was a real find and while easily accessible on foot from the mideaval city, it was also totally off the beaten path.

“Worth Seeking Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

If you are hungry for meat, wood grilled meat, this is one place worth the hunt. Pleasant room and service and reasonable value. Recommended.

“Good french food, homely atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

Located in the Ville Basse area of the city, L'Oeil is a restaurant you probably wouldn't find if you hadn't been told about it and indeed that's how we found it; it was recommended by a cafe owner where we had breakfast one morning. The restaurant is run by two ladies, one of whom was our hostess for the evening. She was friendly and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. It was quiet when we visited but there were some locals eating at a nearby table, which is usually a good sign. The food here is classic French cuisine cooked over a wood fire, a method which seems to be popular in these parts. We shared an excellent starter of Foie Gras, followed by two Sirloin steaks, cooked perfectly to our requirements and full of taste and flavour.
With a shared dessert and a nice bottle of local wine, the entire meal was very reasonably priced. If you're looking for good, inexpensive, down to earth French food in a friendly setting, put your eye on L'Oeil (pardon the awful pun).
