This restaurant was recommended by the locals as a cachet above the rest so we had to try it as treat night. The food was very good although a bit on the nouvelle cuisine side for us as portions were smaller than we expected and we were left still hungry. A good selection of excellent wines and desserts. The service... More

This restaurant, with clean, modern but relaxed interior, came recommended by a local lady working at Carcassonne Marine from where it is just a few minutes walk. We weren't disappointed - the Chez Fred menu serves local dishes and other classics with a twist. We enjoyed some fantastic starters of Salmon Cerviche, Seafood Salad with Remoulade and Goat's Cheese Profiteroles... More

When I have just three days in a place, I tend to visit any one restaurant only once regardless of my opinion. In that way, I get to sample a wider range of the local cuisine options. This place was so good, I went back. At Chez Fred for dinner (the 27th of July) and lunch (the 30th), I had... More

We visited Chez Fred July 7 and thoroughly enjoyed the simple, yet flavorful chicken and uniques frozen goat cheese profiteroles and salad. The kids steak hache (hamburger) was a little bland, but thankfully freshly prepared. At the end of our dinner, the children received a gift box with toys. We were all surprised by the lovely gesture and it made... More

After a tiring day walking around La Cite we looked for somewhere not too far from our boat in the basin to have dinner. This appeared to be the best choice available nearby, however, when we sat down, we found they had only a limited menu available.

Chez Fred was in the City of Carcassonne, near the train station. It was a recommendation from our hotel concierge and we were not disappointed. It was a bit pricey, but the meals were superior. Margret de Canard, Escalope de Poulet, Steak...Salads, entrees and dessert. Tres Bien! Waitstaff was very helpful and attentive.
