Great friendly location.

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

I can't review the food or drinks, only the service. We sat down. It wasn't busy. We waited and waited. A waiter was serving two other tables on the terrace. He passed by us at least four times. At last, we got tired of being ignored and moved to the other open restaurant in the square. Very disappointing.

My wife and I had lunch at Le Saint Jean on a very, very hot day in Carcasonne. The restaurant has a large outdoor dining area almost completely covered by large white umbrellas; large pots planted with petunias lined two sides of the dining area. When we arrived, not many people were there, but people were waiting in line by... More

We eat here on a terrace with some heater, was Novemeber. The service is good, perhaps a bit slow, but not very much. The dinner was excellent and abundant. The carnard filled wit foie is a must.

We wondered into Le Saint Jean because our friends were staying nearby. We had a morning coffee and the coffee and service were excellent. Before leaving I looked at the menu (which is augmented by a small slate crried around by the servers). Later as we were surveying restourants in other parts of town, I suggested we try Le Saint...

We enjoyed lunch so much that we returned and enjoyed dinner just as much. Lunch was a giant and gorgeous duck and chèvre salad with pitcher rose and crackly-crust bread. All of the ingredients were divine, and between bites we could admire the Chateau next door. We returned for dinners of excellent duck and the best steak tartare either of... More

We were recommended this restaurant and it was a good choice. I had the dinner menu with a greek salad, fish with sweet potato puree and a strawberry soup with cream. Every dish were delicious and tasty and especially the main course had nice details on it. Nice looking portions and friendly service.

Near our hotel and became busy by 730pm but not strained. Good choice of regular items and a daily specials menu. Explanations in English if needed. Descriptions were clear. We were allowed to take our time and were asked about the food after each serving with genuine interest.

On saturday 13th September I visited this restaurant after a rugby match with some friends. I have eaten there before and was happy to bring friends there. We were seated quickly by extremely friendly staff. However the crowd of people there for dinner meant that the 3 girls were massively overworked. We received our started after 25 minutes and although... More
