There were 8 of us at a round table for the 38 euro lunch. It was quiet being Monday. Beautiful log fire to keep us cosy on a wet cold day. Staff were most attentive, friendly and helpful. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal, beautifully presented although not piping hot. ...not a problem for me. Wine and water glasses were... More

Lunch for 38 euros including wine,water and coffee not to mention an excellent amuse Bouche,.cooked by a Michelin star chef.Service and food were elegant in every way. Wine and water were not limited to one glass. I suspect one would need to book well in advance especially in high season. There was a large party of local businessmen today which... More

A magnific hall, that will move you in the past, dressed with old chandelier, carpets, wooden ceiling. A high level and professional service accompanies appetizing meals, irrigated by some of best available wines.

The service was superb, the food was beautifully presented and was delicious, wine was not limited to one glass per person and the restaurant was very elegant. As well as the above we were treated to an amuse bouche before our meal and tasty petit... More

We stayed on the 20th September in Hotel de la Cite and I had booked a table for two at La Barbacane. Upon arrival to the restaurant we were first ushered to some deep seats and made our dining choices over a glass of wine and some appetisers. The 10 course tasting menu with supporting wines was excellent, the service... More

The ambiance of the restaurant and the Hotel de la Cite is inextricably linked to its history and the character that comes with it. The staff are superb at doing their jobs in the most unobtrusive way making you feel like the most important customers there. We had the seasonal menu which has the theme of mushrooms and this was...

I ordered the chef's eight course tasting menu and found all the courses to be creative and delicious- some near perfection. The five local wines were lovely and well paired. Sadly we will not be able to find many of these outside the region. Service was excellent although the restaurant was full. I was very comfortable eating alone.

Top quality service and food on offer here at the hotel in the city of Carcassonne, bypass all the touristy restaurants and bars and head for this beauty. We had the set lunch which was very, very good. 100 euros for two isn't the cheapest, but by far the best. Tip, get there at 12, 12:30, for the best service,... More

I am not sure where to even start! The restaurant is located in the Hotel De la Cite which is in the center of La Cite itself. We booked our dinner there after i had read several of the reviews here on Tripadvisor, but nothing could have prepared us for the beauty of the restaurant and the amazing service as... More
