“As good as it gets, fantastic value for mioney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2010

Does not look great from the outside but the food is varied and very good. It certainly lived upto expectations. Staff were excellent with very good english spoken. She really made you feel at home. The food was excellent - we had the fixed price menu and it was excellent value. This is a s good as it gets in France. Traditional food and a close intimate atmosphere.

“Really spectacular food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2010

The restaurant doesn't look much different from any of a dozen others in La Cite but the quality of the food is incredible. We ordered a la carte and their cassoulet was excellent (and quite large as tends to be the case with cassoulet). I had the venison stew which came with an assortment of interesting and creative vegetables which is a nice thing to see as so many of even the highest end restaurants spend all their effort on the protein and ignore the rest. I will yearn for the venison stew for months to come.

“Excellent, authentic regional cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2009

We have eaten in this restaurant three times now, at different times of the year, and the food is fresh, local and delicious. It is family owned and run and tons better than a lot of the restaurants in La Cite of Carcassonne which are very touristy.It is very reasonably priced as well.
