Eat in the cloisters of a tenth century Benedictine monastery.
Relais de Mirepoix, No. 8
Tapas and French food in a 400 year old maison de Maitre nestled in the centre of the historic city of Mirepoix
A pretty restaurant in the middle of Mirepoix with its own garden and terrace.
La Taverne a Bacchus
A Corsican restaurant, with a focus on meat (!), just outside Limoux
La Table de Norbert
A small French grill in the backstreets of Carcassonne's low town. It is pure theatre as you walk in!
Le Jardin en Ville
Tucked into a housing estate, somewhere behind Carcassonne train station, you will find this lovely funky bistro serving delicious salads and fresh seasonal food.
La Rive Belle
Picturesque restaurant on a lock on the Canal du Midi
Brasserie du Quercorb
A craft brewery in the heart of the Cathar country. Often there are food trucks parked up at the weekend and live music
Le Moulin a Trebes.
Another restaurant along the Canal du Midi, near Trebes.
An Italian restaurant in the middle of the Corbieres wine region. They even make their own delicious mozzarella from their herd of buffalo.
A gem of a fish restaurant on a beautiful stretch of beach, just south of Leucate village.
A trendy beach restaurant, quite informal. Book some fatboy beanbags for sunbathing afterwards.
Cambuse du Saunier
A beautiful seafood restaurant on the edge of the salt flats in Gruissan.
