My family including a 1 year old baby stayed one night inside the walls of old Carcassonne, overall 3 days in the area. We arrived late in the afternoon after a day travel. The day after ascension was cold, grey and very windy so we looked for a place VERY close by of our Best Western hotel with some good... More

Tiring of the inevitable cassoulets we thought the menu here promised some truffled delights. Descending the castle steps to the inside which was decorated with cod mediaeval artefacts, but in a charming fun way. The oefs en cocotte with foie gras and truffle oil actually caused instant addiction, and we bemoaned that we flew home next morning, so could not... More

We had the set lunch just before Christmas. Not many tourists around at this time so the set lunch menu had been reduced from 14 and a half to 12 and a half euros. This included a 3 course meal. We both had a lovely French onion soup to start, I had a chicken dish and my husband had the... More

You need to find the right door, as there is an entrance to another restaurant right outside. This place is right in a corner by the Aude gate and as you step in, it feels like Carcassonne of olden times. The theme inside is old and charming and there is an outside area for fine days which is located right... More

Close to the rampart area of Carcassone we expected this to be expensive and touristy. Wrong! It is great value for money with fresh well cooked food. The Combinado sea food platter was huge and wonderful. Has a terrace garden for summer months and a medieval themed dining area inside. Thoroughly recommended

This COULD be the best dining experience in old Carcassonne with a little effort. It's a charming retreat that feels like it belongs in a medieval city. The recommended locally-made red wine was outstanding. The mussels were perhaps the best we have ever eaten. The salmon on the combo platter was overcooked despite our clear request for "rouge"; the Carcassonnais... More

Food was just OK and the service was fine but the leaf covered awning and damp chairs were disconcerting. Standard offerings that were large and somewhat uninspired.

Tucked away close to the chateau, dinner was in the garden at the back, which is shady and quiet but which could be so much more attractive, given a little effort (stained canopies, big lamps strung on cables and a shabby, earth-covered dining area). The birds serenaded us at twilight, which is more than can be said for the woman... More

Ate here two nights out of the four we were in Carcassonne. The menu was varied compared to many of the set menus at other restaurants within the cite and it didn't seem to be just aimed at tourists. The staff were excellent and made us feel very welcome. The atmosphere was lovely and the quirkiness of the restaurants interior... More
