As usual every time we are in the region we visit Chateau de Cavanac to have dinner. It was our 10th time we went there and became a bit critical. In our view there is - since we came here 10 yrs ago - so few variation in the spices.
We were served by Madame G. Her attitude was really arrogant. We didn't feel good and cosy. And so, next time we are near to Carcassonne we will go elsewhere, l'ambarras du choix. Fini.

We had been here years ago and it had been the best meal we had in France. We were looking forward to finally returning and booked a room so we would not have to travel after a big meal that included wine.
The dining room is pleasant, but the food was a huge disappointment. The meal started with a kir that is included and a little plate of very dry, hard something that was similar to a pretzel. My husband ordered the pate which was fine but is usually served with toast points.There was a bread basket, but the bread was not fresh. I got the lobster salad. It was ok, but the lobster was chewy. The next course was also mediocre. The crayfish were extremely difficult to eat since they were tough, probably over cooked or reheated. The casserole of fish also seemed to be reheated. Our main course was no better. Overcooked and dried out pork served with a sweet sauce which was needed to cut the dryness. By this point, we had met another couple and joined them for dessert. They were also very disappointed. They ordered the cheese thinking that is was not possible to go wrong with that. It was a single round of cheese with honey and a few nuts, but was better than my creme burlee which was cruddled. The meal was served with wine and the red was fine. The white was sweet. I was surprised that the wine had twist off tops and not a cork.
In summary, this meal was not nearly worth the price even with the wine. We have had better meals at a third of the price as lunch formulas.

Staying at the Chateau we decided for the 1st night to eat in the hotel restaurant. As soon as you enter the atmosphere is something special. The service and menu was superb. The menu on 1st appearance seemed expensive, 45 euro, but we quickly changed our minds. You start with an aperitif, there were 3 bottles on wine already on the table, the menu was 4 courses and coffee and a liquor to finish. Amazing food, amazing service, brilliant price. The best restaurant I have been to in France.

Recommended by locals, we booked for dinner one evening,we were the only guests not staying, and also the only English there that night.
Food excellent and a lot of it -six courses, and selection of three wines all included in the price of 45euros each..Good service and ambience-out on the terrace.
Not to be missed if in the area.

We were looking for a special place to celebrate a birthday whilst on holiday. This seemed perfect. We went for the all inclusive 45euro menu. The food was very poor. We gave up after the third course.the waiter did all in his limited power and transferred us to the a la carte menu which made the bill slightly less eye watering but still outrageous for what we had eaten. We went with high hopes and the expectation of adding a positive review. It is a lovely location. We may have been unlucky. But within a short drive we had had a wonderful meal at half the price. Drive to Pommayrac and enjoy a warm welcome and no pretension .
