Had booked this in advance as part of a 5 day stay at the Hotel de la Cite. Decided to have the 8 course discovery menu with matching wines and it was an excellent choice! A regular at michelin restaurants, this was up there with the best, superb range of food from king crab, lobster, foie gras to tuna tartare,... More

This was our first experience of a Michelin star restaurant at La Barbacane. We choose the 8 course taster menu with matching wines.Wow fantastic! Each course was explained and the knowledgable introduction to the wines served for each meal was a delight . The hot courses being presented in such an almost orchestrated way when the silver lids were removed... More

We had the opportunity to visit Carcassonne. So, I've made a reservation in La Barbacane for the 3 course lunch for 38 euro/pp, including 2 glasses of wine, water and coffee … a good deal for a michelinstar restaurant. Visit the website of La Barbacane, make your reservation for free and receive your confirmation in seconds. Stylish and elegant restaurant... More

Last year I visited Carcassonne with my husband and had the wine matched dinner at La Barbacane and it was so wonderful that we booked in again when we visited this time - it remains one of the best wine matched meals I have ever had! And for what you got I think that it is value for money. The... More

The food is excellent and service very good but choice a bit limited. As my wife and I wanted different wines we ordered by the glass. Choice was only one red and one white - rather disappointing when there is such an extensive wine list. Not a cheap dinner, but sitting outside with stunning views certainly makes it special.

We had lunch at the restaurant while staying in the hotel and I found it good value for money and excellent food. The dining area is classical but not too formal. The service is well timed and not intrusive. The set menu for lunch with accompaning wine was a suprise! The Duck tartar as a starter was different and delicate.... More

Stumbling across this 1 star restaurant, i choose it over the numerous (and I mean numerous) multiple award winning restaurant serving Toulouse sausage Cassoulet. The meal was a delight, pictures and menu attached, need I say more?....O.k.the Saugvinon Blanc from Carcassonne, was one of the best wines I've ever drunk. (I seemed to have a bottomless glass of wine...the Evian... More

Michelin seem to be giving out stars like sweeties. This was our last night in France and so chose this restauarnt for a great meal. There was no welcome. You arrive at the bar and stand behind two other parties whilst the barman making cocktails panics to find someone to deal with you, there is no reception point. On being... More

My mother and I stayed at the Hotel. As she is suffering froma long term illness that affects her appetite we were a bit reluctant to pour money into a meal out that she might not enjoy. This is frustrating because both of us are great food lovers. We have had some awful food on this holiday as well so... More
