We visited Axat several times during our week in Aude. Fell in love with the place. Had drinks and coffee here every day sat beside the river. Lovely atmosphere and very welcoming staff.

Basically a bar that serves food. I have only eaten there at lunchtimes but they serve typical pub food with generous proportions from a limited menu at a reasonable price

Good value for money and a charming location. The plat du jour is an excellent choice. Located right by the river the outside seating gives a very pleasant ambiance. The food is good too.

Sat outside with the mountains around us - stunning. Food was excellent. We had the 22 euros menu and wondered how they managed to make a profit. Excellent freshly cooked food. Service was good. Would definitely lunch here again.

We came to Axat on the Red Train and needed lunch. Le Central was 10 minutes from the station on foot and looked welcoming and pleasant. The place was busy but we found a table overlooking the river. Staff were quick, pleasant and easy to...More
