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...

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.
