Beautiful Cassoulet - Tres bon

Being in the south of France. Cassoulet was the quest for today. Le Trivalou didn't fail us. Ordered Cassoulet de Cunard (Duck) with pork sausage. The duck was confit. It was absolutely sensational.

We are travelling through France on our way home from Cambrils in Spain and stopped off at Carcassonne on route. We stayed at the Mercure hotel close to the Cit and having wondered around the medieval town we were not too impressed by the look of the restaurants so we had a look on TA. The restaurant is small and... More

This place has such a good feel and cozy environment. Outstanding food and service. Great for couples and small groups. They serve typical French cuisine and the menu is filled with options. Definitely recommended

Fabulous lunch spot near the walled city, definitely worth a visit!! The cassoulet was fantastic (as was the mushroom fricassé and chocolate banana tart).

There was nothing actually wrong with the food, which could best be described as "distinctly ordinary but with pretensions", it was just that the potions were minuscule. Fortunately, there are other places nearby offering good food so you won't actually have to go home hungry.

Tiny little place, you really must book. We are inside and although it was a bit squishy the food more than made up for it. Amazing. Cassoulet, chicken with parsley and garlic sauce and Creme Catalana...along with an excellent bottle of red...were just delicious.

Small quaint restaurant. The veg salad and the wheat soup were good. The demi liter of Corbières red wine was excellent. The cassoulet was very mild, lacking any herbs but very filling and pleasant. The Duck leg on the top was cooked perfectly. Couldn't finish it. Very generous portion.

Stuart and I were determined to have Cassoulet and Janet is very health conscious but could not resist trying the dish this was an excellent sample the restaurant is small and has a good atmosphere the young couple create a good atmosphere its in a side street but well worth finding

Small, friendly restaurant, with excellent food. It was busy; it was Tuesday evening in October and they were turning people away. Fortunately we booked.

Just eaten here tonight & what a find this was. The food is first class- beautiful fois gras, perfect entrecote, cassoulet, bream (despite the chef apologising because he thought he had overcooked it!) & chicken. Tiny place, book or get their early but definitely go!
