Relaxing dinner spot

A very relaxing, spacious, outdoor dinning spot that's nice, but still casual. Good wine, nice (large) pizza. We had to stick with what we could recognize b/c our French is poor and the menu was not in English, nor did our waitress speak any English, but it all worked out and was enjoyable.

A great way to spend our final night in Carcassonne, the food and wine were amazing....only regret is that we didn't go there the first night too.

We are local and have eaten at the Le St Jean many times over the years. This was the worst - service was dreadful - I know they must get tourist fatigue but they made little or no effort inspite of speaking good French. The food was average, the length of time was poor we had starters and had to... More

Lovely place to eat in Carcassone. We went there three times in one week. Delicious food, beautifully presented and extremely tasty. Very reasonable set menus. Brilliant with kids (we have 3yr and a 1yr old).

This was the best meal I had in Carcassonne by far, my wife and our two friends even went back a second night as it was so good, staff very friendly they were quick and curteous if your not French then that's not a problem as some of the staff speak English and can give you a English menu.

Can't recommend this little gem enough the staff are so helpful and pleasant coupled with 5 star food, me and my family went twice less expensive than the square in Carcassonne with beautiful view within the walls of Le Cite. We will be back again sometime.

We went there after reading good comments on Tripadvisor. The location was indeed beautiful and the starters were great. However the whole evening started to go completely wrong, as we waited for ages for our mains. Finally after 2h of ordering, 3 came but the 3rd one had to wait another 20 min. We hoped the food would be good... More

Had the lamb cooked in honey, garlic & pine nuts. The best meal I've had for a long time, the waitress was so helpful with my limited French. Would recommend.

The food was good. We all ate from "the board" and were rewarded with something other than tourist fare. The server was absolutely fabulous making for a great evening. Great location to pop out the gate after dinner to see the illuminated walls.

We spotted this restaurant from the ramparts and decided it'd be a great place to eat lunch in the sun. The menu was limited, and local/French in style. They couldn't really cater for our 18 m/o as they didn't have high chairs, but few places within the old city do. I enjoyed the cassoulet which is a local stew with... More
