Wonderful food, creatively presented, bought smiles and sighs of delight!! We have eaten the filet mignon and filet du boeuf. Dining room is ok, a little bit conserative,but the staff is friendly and helpful particularly when they realise you speak only a little bit French. We went to 3 restaurants in town. It's not the cheapest restaurant in town, but... More

Good value, but one star withheld because dining alone in this sterile and cool environment is not that comforting

We had lunch in this restaurant. We were very interested in trying the cassoulet. Overall, very solid, classic dish. It was a good size and tasty. We also had a plate of duck, salad and some wine. All came in under 80 euro. The service was great. Ambience excellent. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent service in a very pleasant dining room or outside on the terrace with the smokers, if you prefer. Wind depending and the notorious Marin also whisks up the dust and leaves in Castnaudary. A friend and I had the homard, she with the warm sauce, I with the cold and it was perfection. Expensive, but you get what you... More

I'd agree with one of the other reviewers who describes this as a good, slightly old fashioned style of French hotel restaurant. However, the waiter was one of the friendliest we have had in France. After I had ordered in French, he complimented me on my French, and continued the conversation in English. I'd agree with the same reviewer that... More

Gorgeous day!!! Managed to find a table on the terrace,......with a view! End of October and the weather helped to make this visit special. We arrived early as we hadn't booked., and many were turned away later. So lucky us!! We ate well, drank well and watched well. The ray fish was the 'plat du jour' and my 'magret' du... More

After spending 10 nights cruising along the Canal du Midi we ended our journey in Castelnaudary. We weren't looking for anything special but found this delightful hotel/restaurant. There was a chill in the air so we opted to eat inside - lovely crisp linen. The ambiance was great and the food and service excellent. We were particularly impressed that the... More

Good slightly old fashioned style of French hotel restaurant. Slightly stark black and white decor, but comfortable and crisp linen. Proper local food, well prepared and presented. Over perhaps a dozen visits, it is fairly consistent but occasionally a dish is miss rather than a hit - sometimes starters can be served a little too cold from the fridge. But... More
