“Great steak & chips”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Ideally situated near the canel, plenty of parking. Warm welcome from very helpful staff. Would say that I asked for a blue steak and got a medium rare one. Still was tasty. One word to the wise the salads are huge make sure you're sharing.

“Best steak you will have in town”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Visited this restaurant during a stay in Carcassonne. Restaurant is near the train station and next to the canal du midi, just under the railway bridge. Lovely spot to eat, in this family run restaurant. Have the entrecote steak at 20 euros and you cannot fail to be disappointed. The steak is cooked on the open fire in one half of the building and if you like it rare or medium, the taste is out of this world. Cant recommend it enough. Give it a try if you are in the area.

“A family run restaurant for meat eaters”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We recieved a warm welcome, although we had not booked. We were lucky to get a table as most were reserved. If you were close to the open fire it would be very hot indeed, but we were well placed, well served and the food was lovely. Meat cooked exactly as requested, and of a high quality. The wine suggestions were very good, We had a lovely evening.

“Carnivore delight without any service”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Group of South Africans needed a good meal Our eating experience in France so far has not been great,with Paris being the worst. There was absolutely no service and had we had to search for our waiter. The whole restaurant only managed by husband and wife.The ambience with the open fire was great although very hot inside. The meal when it arrived as great and meat cooked to perfection Portion where generous. End of evening pleasant meal.

“Watch every thing being cooked perfectly on an open fire.”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This small family run restaurant is very good, but it is for meat eaters and the portions are generous. It is situated on the bank of the Canal du Midi in Carcassonne. You can watch every thing being cooked to perfection on an open fire, it is true it is short on vegetable, but this is often the case in France as they believe that the meat is the most important part of the meal. We have eaten there several time during our 7 years in France and never been disappointed.
