Recently had our second visit to this superb restaurant and can't wait to go back. Food, setting and staff our all fantastic. If in Carcassonne hire bikes and cycle out for an afternoon, you won't regret it.

A beautiful canal-side setting. This open air restaurant serves first class meals, well prepared, beautifully presented. Sadly, only open during the Summer months. A gem ! We have lunch here as often as we can.

Ourselves and our relatives come to this restaurant every year. It never fails and gets better year by year. It's treatment of vegetables is exemplary, and the meat and fish are generous and well cooked. Good wine too.

As mentioned by BC049 it's right by the canal lock. It was, in the old days, the lock keepers house. We were there on a Saturday and again on a Tuesday. As for being always open, I don't know but you can ask the lock... More
