    A lovely old fashioned building at a road Junction in the Centre of the town. A warm greeting from Madame Dunod who took us to a table in the resturant.
    It was lovely to be in a warm place after the miserable, wet cold of the morning and the restaurant was not too busy so service was attentive and speedy.

    We had arrived at the right time - just as we gave our order it filled very quickly.

    We chose the Menu of the region which featured their own famous cassoulet as main course, a terrine for starter and apple tart to finsh - all for 16 euros 50.

    It was all excellent and the cassoulet was without a doubt the best we had ever tasted . We returned two weeks later on our homeward journey and hope to do so again very soon.

    If we needed a bed for the night in Castelnaudary this is where we would stay.

    Favorite Dish: Cassoulet.

    whole town turns to a giant outside restaurant with hunderds of tables on the streets of the center, offering only one kind of food, Cassoulet. Cassoulet is a mixture of beans, sausage, lard, and turkey all mixed in a clay pot. Tradition has it that this was all the food that was left during a siege some 200 years ago, and city dwellers turned it to a dish.

    Period:
    last weekend of August, in 2005: 26.-28. August
