This is a restaurant with a selection of dishes from the Languedoc-Roussillon and around the south of France. It was a great value with great service. It is situated in the main square of Béziers, Place Jean Jaurès, on the end of the boulevard Paul Riquet. It is a humble culinary place, but you can eat fairly priced dishes from the area. The terrace is on the outside, the perfect place to have a meal during the spring and summer. Among its menu there are fish dishes or "produits / fruits de mer" as they say: Prawns, mussels in white wine and all kinds of fish. With some exceptions, most of the dishes are Mediterranean, characterized by its lightness and high quality of its products. The exception is the "cassoulete", another specialty. The "cassoulete" is a typical dish from Languedoc-Roussillon whose basic ingredient is white beans, which are cooked with chunks of meat and sausages (which may vary depending on the recipe) and you usually find pork ribs, sausages, bacon , bacon and duck confit. A plateto fortify and resist all walks and paths that the traveler is imposed on the remainder of day!
This restaurant is in La Cité de Carcassonne (France). It serves homemade, traditional food that's completely natural. It's not a pretentious place. The decor, for me, is a bit retro, with an attempted medieval touch. They have a room on the ground floor and a terrace on the inside, two dining rooms on the upper floor, a small, more intimate room and one large diningroom. We had Cassoulet (off the menu, 15 €) with two glasses of regional red wine (3€ each glass). The portions were very generous and delicious. They give you a complimentary appetizer upon arrival. Like all the restaurants in the region, they offer daily menus (between 12-20 €) and à la carte (€ 12-15 entrees), with regional specialties. I recommend it if you are interested in the food and not the decor. Normal service, friendly and cater to your needs.
Situated in the center of the citadel of Carcassonne, the Comte Roger has been recognized by major guides in France for its excellent cuisine, a product of the fusion of tradition and innovation. Sylvie and Pierre Bureau are the managers and they change the menu constantly, adapting to fresh produce in the market. Although they give personal touches, this is an excellent place to try the famous Cassoulet Languedoc. Other dishes are also recommended such as the crab ravioli with basil, the young vegetables, and Sauteed Veal with asparagus medallion country. The restaurant has an excellent wine cellar.
La Table d'Aurore is a great choice for lunch or dinner in Saint-Guillem le Desert. It's not the cheapest, being 20 to 28 euros for a menu without the drink, but I must confess that in my life I've not eaten a fresher and better prepared trout as theirs. The explanation? The trout is from Saint-Guillem, fished there, from the river to the table. The dishes are simple and tasty, nothing haute cuisine. They are made with seasonal produce and market vegetables. Depending on the time of year you can ask for a table on their wonderful terrace, shaded by trees and next to the Hérault river. La Table d'Aurore is open every day from 12:00 to 15:00 for lunch and from 19:30 for dinner. It's worth booking a table, as the restaurant belongs to the hotel Le Guillaume d'Orange and guests staying there often fill the majority of spaces.
It is a restaurant inside the Cité of Carcassonne (France). A comfy, elegant and nicely decorated one where you are welcomed with kindness. It also has a dining room, 2 terraces, one at the entrance of the restaurant and the other across the room, with a sunny patio on the 1st floor , as well as another room for private events. I wanted to try the Cassoulet and did not expect to go to Castelnaudary to do so. My dinner was a Cassoulet and two glasses of Blanquette de Limoux. Do not order dessert, because, this dish was too blunt for the night ... I must say it was good, but I found the portion of white beans a bit small and the bread were a bit cold. The price was 23 € with bread and water included, per person. They offer different menus of traditional dishes (15 €, 18 €) and a children's menu (7 €), plus the menu (15 € half the main plates). I will recommend it as a nice restaurant, with a good atmosphere and good value for money.
This is a highly recommended restaurant for a day out in Perpignan. Located across the River Tet on a shady street, it offers a very Mediterranean menu with warm and cold salads, fish plates, meat and vegetarian pastas and great desserts. They serve local French wines, white and red, and some sweet wines ideal for accompanying a meal, and, of course, champagne. A 2-course meal and dessert with a glass of wine costs about 20 euros/person. It's very close to the Place del Castillet. It's a little hidden, but if you follow the river up through the square, you'll see it in front of some small metal bridges. It's very quaint with very good service. They speak Spanish and Catalan. On their website there is a map so you can find it.
It is in the main square of Aigues Mortes, which makes it more attractive. This place specializes in fish and salads. It has an indoor and outdoor terrace to enjoy the lively Plaza de Sant Louis. Their extensive menu of regional specialties have four different menus that increase, from 18 to 35 euros. Portions are large, so I recommend, if you are a big eater, you choose only one.
Saint Cyprien is located in Roussillon, in the region of the French Pyrenees. And to say Roussillon is to say wine. The culture of the vine is well anchored in local traditions and Saint Cyprien loves their local wine. The store Au Petit Bouchon is a Catalan winemakers association offering the best and latest wines. I happened to find the store while strolling the downtown streets and its showcase quickly caught my eye. There were Bordeaux, the colour of the wine, grapes hanging from a piece of a barrel on which "wine cellar" is inscribed, and, above all, lots of local people. The door was open, and even from outside, I could hear the store's warm atmosphere. I entered and heard laughter and stories about the area's first televised exchange while the tour de france played on a small television. A real show! But, on to serious things, like the variety of wine. In this small traditional store, where there is no shortage of advice from the experts, I discovered three good Roussillon harvest wine.
The Divil restaurant is located in the historic centre of Perpignan, near the Castillet, in the tourist area. It's a grill restaurant specializing in a charcoal grill where meats are cooked in view of customers. The place is nice and attracts tourists for its rustic atmosphere with all wood furniture and plenty of mirrors. The food is good both in diversity and quality, without being too excellent. Simple dishes like salads complement the acceptable meat. Horse is also available on the menu. Along with various cuts of beef you can find the usual skewers. All this is accompanied by a small, not very polished, offering of regional wines. It's, in short, a place aimed at a not too demanding clientele ve values simple, grilled dishes. Its location offers an acceptable alternative while visiting the area.
It was a bit random how we ended up at Le Mazurier, and although the view was not what we were looking for, hunger was stronger, and we didn't see much in the area on a Saturday afternoon. It has a pure tourist restaurant from the 60s with a bit rococo inside, red velvet, stained wood, the outside just an awning and some tables in plan terrace. With food, I must admit we made a good choice, excellent quality, quantity and price. My son went for a pot of mussels with fries, a St. jacobo for me and my husband a combo plate, ... was it Hunger? I do not know, we didn't eat everything. The count rose to about 40 € including drinks, good service, and although the decor, the place was clean.
While not overlooking the inviting place to come, hunger and relatively accurate prices led us to eat at this place, when we were passing through Sete. I do not know if I recommend it, but if I can say that the food was good, my husband ordered a tray of steamed mussels and a combination plate of mushrooms and a salad with liver for me. The burger of my son, the children's menu offering was not a good choice, finished eating the mussels. The end price was more than we thought it would be because refreshments turned out to cost four euros. The decor featured murals of a Spanish dancer and olé Seville.
When I arrived in the town of Agde, I was pleased to find such a beautiful city ... full of charm, with a powerful and ancient history, buildings in basalt, with an almost black color ... After a nice walk along the banks of the Canal du Midi, of Hérault, through the streets of the city, and I soon started to get hungry. By chance we stumbled across the restaurant "Saint Trop '". After a brief look at the menu, we settled on one of the terrace tables. The concept immediately seduced us: the tartine, the club sandwich or salad ingredient by ingredient chosen! Also, for a really affordable price, you can choose the entire composition of the plate, always accompanied by salad. The restaurant is a family business opened in 2010, was completely redecorated, and the interior is equally warm. The owner's smile makes you feel warm and welcome. When I went, the restaurant's winery provided a concert following the dinner...
This magnificent terrace in the plaza is the most lively of the town. We stopped there for a snack and to freshen up. You can have a delicious meal or just snack. Just next door there are the plaza's souvenir shops, as well as artisans and merchants that give a more lively touch to the area. The restaurant serves as a bar-terrace and is also one of the most interesting hotels in Villefranche. Here, you can feel the town's pulse and sit on the terrace as time passes watching people going to and fro.
This restaurant is quite unusual, as the chef, Philippe Chapon, specialises in cooking with flowers! The food is really delicious, with some amazing, unusual flavours. If you're looking for something new and unexpected, then this is definitely a good choice. The wait is a bit long, and the prices aren't particularly low. But don't miss the desserts: Philippe Chapon was twice named the champion of desserts in France!
Carcassonne is like a little Disneyland; around the castle and the church there are hundreds of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a bite to eat. Almost everywhere you go, you can try the cassoulet, a bowl of white beans accompanied by duck leg and pork sausage. We couldn't go to Carcassone without trying it, so we stopped into his restaurant. The cassoulet here is delicious and filling, for 10 euros; you won't need to eat anything else!
