    The cassoulet was very disappointing. Dried out. Couldn't be eaten. Tomato gazpacho was very good. Sea bass was good. Service was attentive and apologetic about the cassoulet.

    The food is fine, the service pleasant and the price is good. But they did something I just hate, they took my used knife and fork from the starter off the plate and put it back down on the table for me to use with the main course. A chef slaves to create dishes that taste unique, why would you start that taste experience with the leftover bits of your last dish stuck to your knife and fork? How hard is it to wash up a few knifes and forks? When you are paying €33 for a menu, surely you can expect clean cutlery for each course?

    Nothing wrong with the food, service felt rushed and there was little time to savour the food or atmosphere, the restaurant appears to cater for crowds and wants people in an out quickly.

    This is a nice place to eat in the cité de Carcassonne. The place is nice indoors and outdoors well désigne for groups. The service was fast and effective. They have young waiters able to speak emmglish. It is a place where I will go back.

    My partner’s French onion soup had burnt cheese on the top, one of the bread rolls was hard and inedible, then the chips were burnt, and his steak was overcooked. I tried to tell the waiters, but they were not interested. When they brought rolls for my dessert of cheese, they were burnt too! Very unsatisfactory. No care taken.

    We were welcomed by a free glass of champagne as soon as we were seated. Both of us had cassoulet and it was excellent. The wine list was good and contained a number of local varieties in the 59cl size. We thought that the price was quite reasonable for a restaurant of this quality in such a popular location within the old city.

    Nice welcome with complementary olives and 2 small glasses of Kurds - then pretty much downhill thereafter. Starters: goats cheese and aubergine millefeuille was good, onion soup was very poor (full of soggy lumps of bread, tasteless). Mains: entrecôte steaks were pool quality, lots of gristle, tasteless.

    Good value given the setting of inside the City Walls of the Castle. The childs menu was limited with only three choices and everything served with chips. That said, that appeared the norm for most other restaurants classed as "child friendly". The staff were attentive to our neesds

    Huge portions of mediocre, disappointing food. Fried potatoes were soggy and limp. Cassoulet was a watery bean soup with tasteless sausage. Service was absolute minimal. Location and ambiance were agreeable and the only good part of the experience.

    We were very well received, with an aperitif (thanks to the booking via lafourchette). Food was deliciously tasty!

    Execellent service, despite being very busy. Food very good, just short of excellent, wine very good indeed. Recommended.

    The only problem was that they could not accept any credit card and suggested we go to an automatic teller. Finally I suggested they charge the bill to our room at their hotel.
