This was our third visit to this lovely fish and seafood restaurant and as always the food was superb. My husband's whole grilled plaice was absolute perfection. My monk fish steak wrapped in pancetta was tasty and a generous portion. We chose a white Minervois wine from a small vineyard only a few kilometres from Carcassonne. It was so delicious and perfect with our fish.
However there was a problem with the service. Our waiter was very off hand, we asked him to speak French but he insisted in speaking very disjointed English. On a nearby table he actually dropped some food on the floor but put it back on the plate!.
There were no smiles as we are used to here and he made us feel uncomfortable. Pity as we love this place.

We went here for an evening meal after a craving for some fresh seafood. We got here just after it opened and were a bit concerned about how quiet it was. So glad we stuck with it, the food was amazing and the restaurant quickly filled with locals. We had the fresh fish platter and were able to watch the chef cooking it at the back of the restaurant, presentation was great and the staff were attentive. Food was beautiful and very well priced, would definitely recommend!

The seafood is really fresh and tasty, I found the quality-price combination quite good. Nice people and cosy ambient.

We walked past this restaurant on the canal and noticed it being a seafood restaurant

Once you walk in the decor is modern and stylish as you can only see a window front which is styled very old. However once you go through the doors and downstairs it’s very lovely

The service was excellent as was the food

Try a picpoul white wine it was fantastic and went very well with the fresh seafood

The seafood was so good and a nice change from local heavy food. Try everything and anything as it’s a great menu

The dessert was excellent also, especially the crepe Gil and the profiteroles

We will definitely come back to this little gem

Small restaurant near the canal. We found it very easily. You eat downstairs in a basement but it was a nice atmosphere and not claustrophobic. We both had the €30 menu and thought it good value. We both started with moules and razor clams. On the menu it was palourdes but these weren't available. The razor clams were just a little gritty but the dish was generous and very tasty.
Next a small whole grilled plaice for my husband, cooked to perfection as were by scallops. A pichet of nice dry house rosé for €6.
Good service. If we are in Carcassonne again we will return.
Can safely say if you like fish and sea food you will be happy here.
Only a small place so perhaps as well to book in advance.
