Visited on a Saturday night in November and the place was very busy (we arrived at 7.30 opening and managed to get a table without a reservation ! Dont' think this would be possible in the Summer months though) We had four courses of excellent food in lovely surroundings served by very nice and helpful staff. Could not fault anything... More

We spent a fabulous evening in this restaurant recently on a busy Saturday evening. The restaurant was full of locals, there was a great buzz about the place and the owner and his wife could not have been anymore helpful and friendly. Four of us enjoyed a 3 course delicious meal with the nicest house wine and aperitifs for less... More

Found this on TA and were not disappointed. Hidden away on an industrial estate but pretty garden and terrace. We hadn't booked so had to eat inside. Full of local employees so very busy. Nice set menu 16€ proved good value

Although it is in an industrial area this is definitely worth a visit.. Good food at reasonable prices. You choose to pay for a combination of "flowers" some dishes are one flower some two. You choose your dishes say a one flower starter, a two flower main and a one flower desert then you pay for the total flowers. Service... More

Arriving for our 7:30 reservation we were warmly greeted by the owner who despite his limited English and our limited French was able to help us understand the delicious menu perfectly. This was not just a delicious meal it was a gastronomic delight. Most of our meals while on this trip will be forgotten but our dining experience at Les... More

Great ambience, fantastic food and the staff are absolutely amazing. We had one of the best meals we have had in a long time and the bill was much less than we expected. 4 courses plus wine for 4 people only 106 Euros, given the quality of the food and portion sizes the value for money is outstanding. Merci Xavier... More

We found this resturant on trip advisor whist visiting Carcassone. We were 2 families and had a lovely meal here. It is not so obvious to find but directions online did the trick. The staff were very attentive and friendly. They have our husbands a tour of the place before we left. Food was plentiful and everyone, including the children... More

Not the most picturesque of approaches, but certainly a rare flower in an industrial landscape. Warm welcome at a restaurant that is clearly loved by locals. A fantastic menu, with a novel fixed price system that makes utter sense once you've worked it out. We had a great family meal: four delicious main courses, a bountiful supply of cheese and... More

Who'd have thought you would find such a great place across the road from a scrapyard? The food service, atmosphere were amazing. We will be going back!!!
