My husband and I stopped here on Saturday with our two eight-year olds for lunch. We arrived at 12.45ish to find we were only the second set of diners in a very big restaurant. Only one other table was taken during our stay. We waited about 10 mins to be offered a menu and then another 10 before our food... More

We went to this restaurant having heard great things about the steaks. We arrived at opening time as we did not have a reservation. I would recommend if you come in peak tourist season, that you book ahead. There was only the one chef and one waitress but they worked tirelessly and were making sure everyone had everything they needed.... More

Living locally, How wonderful to find this jewel and will definitely return here in the future. We booked for 9pm last night and found the restaurant still buzzing. We sat watching in awe of the size of the steaks being cut and relished the aromas drifting under our noses. For starter we shared a delicious mixture of duck salad, followed... More

Amazing place! Steak is beautifully cooked, jacket potato was delicious, couldn't fault a thing. Loved it was a family friendly feel, family who live in France always go and was grateful to be able to experience it! Owners are very friendly and welcoming.

Arrived a bit late for lunch with 2 friends. Very welcoming, although said as we were late we couldn't have a starter. This wasn't a disadvantage as the steak for the main meal was big and filling. All cooked right in front of us The only down side was my wife said the water wasn't working in the ladies so... More

We arrived a little early to find the grill master raking embers to the front of the grill in preparation. Two of our party ordered lamb chops which the chef carved from a rack carried out from the back. I ordered from the prix fixe menu that offered a 'piece of beef' which turned out to be a huge boneless... More

We were treated to outstanding quality food in a relaxed, informal restaurant. The owners are passionate about the origin and quality of their food and wine. There is an interesting selection of starters - all looked delicious. Main course is simple steak, salmon or prawns all cooked to perfection over an open fire. My husband declared t the best steak...

After many days on the Canal du Midi and eating lots of seafood and poultry we were looking forward to a good steak and we were not disappointed at this restaurant. The meat is cut and cooked in a small corner of the restaurant where you can witness the process. It was cooked precisely as ordered, absolutely delicious and in... More

The food is fantastic, but make sure you come with an appetite! The cuts of meat are impressive, as is how they are cooked over an open fire. If you're not a meat eater, they have a salmon steak that is one of the best I've ever had. The kids couldn't get enough of the baked potatoes. And the desserts... More
