“What a great surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2011

This place is a hidden gem! Situated 15 mins to the north of Carcassonne, this is lovely. There is plenty of parking so no issues there. The menus are innovative and varied and you get lots of treats such as pre-desserts etc. We have eaten here twice in the last month with different friends and it's been a real winner. Both times we went for the 44euro menu - which was great! The foie gras selection was the best I think I have ever had the macaroon is a surprise with the black truffle but delicious.

The decor is a little old but the food and wine (good selection and not overly expensive)more than makes up for it - as does the attentive
service. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this if you fancy somewhere new/out of town for a change.

“Good, but overpriced for what they offer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2011

This Restaurant recently got a Michelin star.
It's the youngest chef in France to get this star.
Food is really god and service is OK, but very slow.
I was expecting more for the most expensive meal in our 20 day trip in Europe

“Excellent Restaurant, service and ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2011

This is a very nice restaurant. The chef is the youngest person to gain a michelin star in the world. The front of house staff made us very welcome and gave full attention to detail, which complimented the excellent food and wine. Very good value for money. We will be eating there in the future.
