“La Diligence Cuxac Cabardès -only 24 kms from Carcassonne”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

We live a good way the other side of Carcassonne but decided to drop in after we watched a tv programme on families that relocated to France featuring this restaurant. We stopped in for lunch and had the menu of starter= Calamarie. Main= Fish & Chips with peas and sorbet all for under 15 euros.

The food was fantastic fresh produce perfectly presented in a lovely surroundings. Well worth the a detour if you are in the area and appreciate good food. We will be popping in again some time soon.

“versatile, flexible dining "out"!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

We live in a nearby village. This evening, after a hard day preparing our potager, we just had to try a takeaway. Imagine our surprise and delight to have perfectly cooked cod and chips, with homemade tartare sauce and mushy peas! And all for 8 euro per person. Amazing. A wonderful end to the first day of Spring. Thank you La Diligence.
We really recommend La Diligence for both takeaway service and restaurant dining.

“Same old fare”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

What a great shame that the opportunity was there for a new and diverse menu but all that was offered is the usual Local fare of Duck or Steak or Classic stew as well as pizza and fish & Chips

Most of the foods are also available in the village from evening take away vans.

Very boring and available everywhere

“A small family business”
Reviewed 5 February 2013

A family out of work and with nothing to lose came to Cuxac to start this small family business with daughter, son, husband, two children and grandma and grandad and after three years of hard work they have made a great success of it. I came across La Diligence through the English speaking community here and it's a great find with good cooking and beautiful presentation served up in a warm and pleasant ambience. The cooking is a cross between cordon bleu and classic French recipes and dishes to suit the British palate. At 13,50 euros for lunch it's a petit prix to pay for such excellent quality. Dinner is equally good and stops for ice cream and drinks on the attractive terrace are good too. I have now been there three times. They have fish and chips on the menu,elegantly served with, wait for it, mushy peas! A first for France perhaps. The chef, and brother of the family says: "We should call them our award winning fish and chips." As they haven't yet won an award they can't but it's only a matter of time. I'm sure theirt regular diners would give them an award.

“Awesome little place - stop here!”
Reviewed 23 November 2012

Absolutely marvellous little restaurant, in an ancient coaching stop (hence the name) in Cuxac, right on the main Carcassonne/Mazamet road. Fronted by a charming Irish lady, the cooking is fabulous, particularly the desserts. At €13.50 for a 3 course set lunch, this is a steal for cooking of this quality.
