Amazing place! Steak is beautifully cooked, jacket potato was delicious, couldn't fault a thing. Loved it was a family friendly feel, family who live in France always go and was grateful to be able to experience it! Owners are very friendly and welcoming.

Arrived a bit late for lunch with 2 friends. Very welcoming, although said as we were late we couldn't have a starter. This wasn't a disadvantage as the steak for the main meal was big and filling. All cooked right in front of us The only down side was my wife said the water wasn't working in the ladies so... More

We arrived a little early to find the grill master raking embers to the front of the grill in preparation. Two of our party ordered lamb chops which the chef carved from a rack carried out from the back. I ordered from the prix fixe menu that offered a 'piece of beef' which turned out to be a huge boneless... More

We were treated to outstanding quality food in a relaxed, informal restaurant. The owners are passionate about the origin and quality of their food and wine. There is an interesting selection of starters - all looked delicious. Main course is simple steak, salmon or prawns all cooked to perfection over an open fire. My husband declared t the best steak...

After many days on the Canal du Midi and eating lots of seafood and poultry we were looking forward to a good steak and we were not disappointed at this restaurant. The meat is cut and cooked in a small corner of the restaurant where you can witness the process. It was cooked precisely as ordered, absolutely delicious and in... More

The food is fantastic, but make sure you come with an appetite! The cuts of meat are impressive, as is how they are cooked over an open fire. If you're not a meat eater, they have a salmon steak that is one of the best I've ever had. The kids couldn't get enough of the baked potatoes. And the desserts... More

this restaurant is very good for steaks . It's in a quiet part of the town, near the railway station and along the Canal du Midi, but not in the crowded city center. I like this place for the location and the romantic atmosphere

This place is fantastic! They use a real fireplace to cook your steaks in. Its owned & operated by a husband & wife team. This was absolutely the best steak i had in my three weeks in France. The quality of meat & cooking were superb. I highly recommend this establishment.

This restaurant is extremely handy to get to, sitting on the Route Minervoise on the way out of Carcassonne. It is quite with sitting outside and in, and some of the cooking is done on an original open fire. I had salmon as a main from on the of the set menus which are available, and it was cooked to...
