Very nice people and cosy place (inside). Hamburguer is a must. But cassoulet was re-heated. Tastes good but not recommend this. The hamburguer is a big big plate!

The food is of medium quality, and the service medium-bad. The big surprise is when you are going to pay...When we got seated, the waiter put an OPENED bottle of water on the table. It was a glass bottle, totally marked by many rounds in the dishwasher. So, we assumed that it was tap water (which probably was), as in... More

We had a great late lunch/early dinner here during our visit to the medieval city. The service was terrific, the atmosphere was relaxed, the prices reasonable, and the food tasty. The cassoulet, a local specialty, was delicious and I highly recommend it. This is also one of the best restaurants in Le Cite for vegetarian options. If you want to... More

In the middle of the medivial town of Carcassonne you expect a turist trap, but this place more seemed as the place where the locals went! Fun, good food and a splendid view! What more can you ask for?

Good food and friendly service. Location is fantastic in the medieval city. It was too cold for us to take advantage of the terrace, even though they did have patio heaters.

First night in Carcassonne was on a Monday and, as expected, few of the restaurants were open. Our apartment host suggested we go to the restaurant Adelaide. It was closed but there was another restaurant, Le Saint Jean, across the square (beautifully situated with views of the cite in all directions). It did not get the best rating on TripAdvisor...

This restaurant is located a stone's throw from the castle walls inside the city. We found it on a hot day after walking the ramparts and enjoyed a lunch there sitting outside enjoying the castle view. We went back there the next day. Portions are huge! We can recommend the cheese salad and the salade folle.

Service was friendly. The views and ambience outside are fantastic. The interior is bland. The food portions were very generous and the food was so good we went for two lunches out of three - just fantastic. The gourmet salads are amazing. Trouble is it's all soooooo slow !
