We came across this delightful square in the middle Carcassonne. Atmosphere really. I choose L'Artichaut because it offered more to me than pasta or goats cheese salad. The wine locally produced was very nice. We were offered a choice of table we opted to eat...More

My friend and I dined here last week. Although neither of us chose steak it was very obviously the specialité. Three guys sat near us devoured a 1.7 kilo slab of what looked like really good steak. This was cooked whole and then served as...More

Couldn't fault the food or service after jumping in here out of the rain. We both had a perfectly cooked steak, plus a side of "pommes frites" - the kind you used to get down the chippy, before we all turned so health conscious. Undecided...More
