And when you want to sit outside in the fresh air, they tell you they can't move the tables cause they are.... Bolted onto the floor!!!
The food is possibly good but we decided to have dinner at the Escargo instead : no comparison!

My girlfriend and I ate here in October 2013 on recommendation of our AirBnB host. We decided to stick with the local food and chose duck & ham salad, Carcassonne cassoulet and chocolate fondant from a set menu costing €20. Service was a little slow, especially for lunchtime and we had been there 45 minutes before our first course arrived at the table, however it was very tasty and the remaining dishes arrived reasonably quickly. The cassoulet was fine (although I have a feeling that it's not a dish that will ever blow me away) and the dessert was perfect. Add to this the fact that the bill came to only €40 for two, which is excellent given that you're inside the old city walls and I'd recommend this place to anyone wanting to try the local food.

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant after it was recommended to us by our airbnb host. We opted for the €20 euro three course menu. I had a lovely salad with goats cheese and Roquefort as a starter, followed by cassoulet and finished off with a chocolate fondant. The food was very enjoyable, and exceptional value for what we paid. The owner (we assume) was a very jolly man who greeted us warmly and checked on us throughout our meal. Service was a little slow initially, but it was very busy in the restaurant and once our order was taken our courses were delivered promptly. The Food was a lot better than I was expecting at that price. I would recommend this if you are after simple, good food at a decent price.

Friends recommended that we should try this restaurant which does not have the elegance of some restaurants in Carcassonne but offers real value for money for food and wine. We needed a hearty meal after a day of sightseeing and we were delighted with the platters. The food was cooked to perfection and it was a delight to have food that differs from that found in the majority of restaurants in the Cite

i must admit i haven't tried many of the dishes here , but there is a very good reason for this, the cassoulet des rois is simply the best i have tasted (i've tasted many) . i also don't write too many reviews here , but when i saw some of the bad reviews here i felt the need to chip in . whetever # this is on trip advisor in carcassonne , it is clearly #1 for cassoulet

Thank jason p H
