My seven friends and I landed up here after fleeing the restaurant across the street (the subject of another review). The Maison du Cassoulet was full and nicely humming. We were welcomed by the staff and particularly our young waitress with a smile that we had not seen in a long time.

This is a warm family type place, informal and relaxed. Despite the fact that there are several other restaurants in this group, the food was very nicely prepared. Several of us had and enjoyed, the cassoulet (CASSOULET IN SUMMER?!? But I suppose if you come to Castelnaudry you must have it) I had the very tasty 'duck burger' - really sliced duck breast on an excellent roll with sauteed vegetables. Delicious.

It was exactly what we were looking for. and we enjoyed this place where friends could enjoy each others company while dining on good food in a hearty (there was a whole rugby team seated across from us!) atmosphere. Good value, friendly service. Recommended.

we went for lunch as a group of 6 at the end of a boating holiday. We were able to make a reservation for 90 minutes after time of booking. The restaurant was busy but we were seated promptly and the service was efficient and pleasant. This is not high style French food but there were adequate menu choices for those in our group that did not wish cassoulet.

I had the cassoulet and found it to be very good, my second experience with the signature dish of this region of France.

Overall a pleasant place for a filling meal with a local flavour

This hotel restaurant has a great demi-pension plan for two at 80 euros: Room, 2 dinners, and 2 breakfasts. The manager, Michael, is interested in pleasing his customers, unlike some of the staff who seem a little detached. The chef, however, is dedicated to preparing dishes of the region and they are delicious.
The room was small, up stairs with no lift, but spotlessly clean.
Parking is available at a public lot across the street from the hotel, after 4:30 or so (free two hours parking during the day and unrestricted parking from 6 p.m. until 8 a.m.--you would have until 9:30 or so to move your vehicle).

I'm not sure why this is called the "Maison du Cassoulet" as it has a wide-ranging menu and only one variety of cassoulet is offered. But it's a good hearty meal and the €19 menu includes a good dessert. But it was very busy when we went and with only one well meaning but over-worked waitress the service was slow. If you arrive late you may be offered a table in a windowless room at the back - wait until something better comes available as it's quite claustrophobic in there and you can't see what's going on around the restaurant.
