We ate here on Saturday in October. The owner informed us he had a problem with oven which was causing a few issues. I opted for a Serrano ham starter with toast. There was plenty of ham but the toast was quite dry. Main course was cassoulet, which I have to say I was disappointed with. The was very little... More

Had a lovely meal here during our visit to Carcassonne. Very reasonable and obviously popular with the locals. Would definitely revisit for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant offers an excellent setting for lunch in the heat of the sun. The menu is limited but we found dishes to suit us for a mid-day snack. One item chosen was a large Caesar salad which was delicious and filling. The other was a cheese burger which came as rare as rare can be. I fact I don't... More

Went here for lunch and were very surprised about the range of vegetarian dishes on the menu, which is quite rare in France. Food was very tasteful and the location was great in a quite corner of the busy market square. The service was good, prices reasonable and the interior of the restaurant itself very industrial and cool.

Small menu with very little choice. Sadly we were kept waiting for our main course, which was not brilliant, my steak was so tough I could not eat it, thankfully they took it off the bill !!

Set in the vibrant Place Carnot we selected L'Artichaut pretty much at random for a Saturday evening meal. Things got off to a reasonable start, my starter of beef carpaccio was very enjoyable but unfortunately for my wife her Camembert was very much over ripe and particularly unpleasant, leaving an awful taste. We both ordered the entrecôte steaks, I went... More

My first time in France and i realised that vegetarians aren't really catered for properly so i was really pleased to see a couple of veggie options in this local restaurant. I wasn't expecting much but the set lunch with the Veggie Lasagne and Cafe Gourmand was my favourite meal of the trip - it was really delicious, great value... More

Absolutely can't fault. This restaurant had been recommended by our host at our B&B and we couldn't have been more happy. The food is excellent, the server was extremely helpful (we speak very limited French and she spoke fantastic English!) The atmosphere was really nice, a real buzz to the place - busy, but we never felt overlooked or forgotten.... More
