Visited with gourmand friends. If you want solid French bourgeois food, look no further. Although the dining room lacks a bit of atmosphere, this is more than compensated for by the restaurant always being full of (mostly) local French people and hôtel guests. There are several menus ranging from 12 euros (lunchtime during the week) and 17 euros up to 38 euros. Their signature dish is Agneau en Croûte (lamb and mushroom pie -don't eat lunch beforehand!) but you won't be disappointed whatever you order. For the wine-lovers, however, la carte des vins is a real delight as well as the best value around. The stars are mostly from Languedoc-Roussillon; try the Château Ollieux 2009 (Corbières) or the Château Sainte Eulalie, La Cantilène (Minervois La Livinière ), 2010 for size! A previous reviewer complained about the staff favoring locals, but I've seen no evidence of this.

The main problem with the restaurant is that it is like eating in an open plan office. It would be a much better place to visit in the warmer months when one can eat on the terrace, but inside, just very boring.
The food is adequate , a bit uninspiring but cooked well , the usual traditional regional fare. The wine list has a couple of real gems at reasonable prices ( for a restaurant !).
If the opportunity arises I will revisit in the summer.

Stayed two nights in this pleasant hotel. Good parking and only a five minute walk into centre of Mirepoix. Rooms clean and simply furnished. Only one criticism, towels a bit thin! Free WiFi in all rooms (more expensive hotels please note).

Ate in the restaurant in the evening, the food was good and ample portions. Good value for money. The staff were friendly and welcoming, would certainly stay there again.

Everything was excellent and I'd recommend it without reservation. The only problem was that smokers liked to use the terrace, too. A suggestion to management would be to make a specific smoking area a bit apart from regular diners. The menu was not exciting, offering classics which were perfectly executed, very well presented.

i went with my wife at the end of May to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. We were staying in the stunning area with friends and children and we managed to sneak out for a romantic dinner.
The food was very good, portion sizes very generous and the service, although a bit of a struggle if you dont speak french, very friendly and old fashioned. The only negative note was about the atmosphere, the decor was very out of date and the lighting was way too bright for a romantic dinner. Take out those candles and you will get top marks.
