On our 2nd visit to Carcassonne we remembered this restaurant from the first time around and how much we enjoyed the buffet.

Inside the restaurant has a lovely French feel to it smart, polite waiting staff and a relaxed atmosphere. We opted for the buffet for starter and dessert and Steak and Duck for mains, both of which were lovely, the buffet starter offers a chance to try some French delicacys such as giant snails! gave it a go and they were pretty good!

For dessert the il Flotand dessert was terrific very reasonably priced by Carcassonne standards, look forward to visiting again.

There appears to be 3 section to this restaurant .The outside seats ,the just inside the door seats and the inner restaurant .We initially sat at the inside section and were given an uninspiring menu.When I asked what was on the Inner part we were shown a different Menu which then tempted us to move there.The Service was very good .We ate from the 25€ menu which was reasonably good value with a ham salad entree well presented and very tasty with little extras on it .Also the first time we received butter for the lovely french buns. I had the salmon which was also well presented but was possibly a tiny bit overcooked but none the less still nice.The dessert was a choice of there buffet desserts or a chocolate type brownie with custard and ice cream.Which I had and was delicious .We noted you could have the buffet there if you wished and quit a few people were going for that,not sure what the price was though.Overall reasonable value and above average.I would eat here again.

Good for petite dejeuner and also dinner. Popular with locals. Excellent staff. Dinner had a buffet starter...eat as much as you like and a great choice of sweets....again eat as much as you like. Cassloet was a bit disappointing. Tasty bit overpriced.

We ate here in April 2013. It's a tourist place, but serves generous helpings - with variable quality depending on the dish. The cassoulet was fine if uninspired, the magret de canard a bit tough, and the entrecôte seriously chewy. But it's hours ( opens at 6am) are pretty unbeatable in a French city. Probably eat elsewhere - there's lots of choice in Carcassone, though people with children will find they were well tolerated here.

We came here on 14th October,on a cold rainy,Sunday evening in Carcassonne,not knowing that most of the Centre Ville is closed.What a surprise!The restaurant itself is beautifully ornate&decorated&the tables laid to perfection.I ordered the pave de boeuf(the special,8 euro 50),which was so tender&melted in the mouth&my husband ordered the top-end set menu(29 euro,sounds excessive I know),which included foie gras(tried for the first time&not disappointed),duck breast(tender&melting),cheese(well....!!)&a tart tatin with ice cream(the likes&size of which we'd never seen!! I grabbed a spoon to help him out!!),all washed down with a litre house carafe of red wine(10 euro) which was lovely&rounded,not harsh at all.
Couldn't fault the service,2 waiters working about 25 tables&not once did we wait for anything&at the same time nor did we feel rushed.Nothing appeared too much trouble should you need anything.I can think of many restaurants here that could take a leaf out of their book!We had such a lovely time&will definitely go again next time we visit Carcassonne......I urge you to visit here too!!
