Dinner at La Barbicane was the culinary high point of our trip in Southern France. This is a truly elegant restaurant in a setting right out of the 14th century, but with every luxury and fantastic, friendly service. The food, every course, was sensational, and the wine suggestions were right on the mark. A wonderful splurge for a memorable meal... More

Exceptionally good food- we did the tasting menu and it was the best Michelin * tasting dinner we've tried (we've done a few in the UK). Lovely room and very good staff.

We have been eating at La Barbacane for about 15 years, sometimes twice a year, usually spending the night at the hotel, to celebrate our anniversary---and Christmas Eve, when they offer a great deal for a one night stay, and prix fixe dinner at the restaurant. We loved the hotel and loved our tradition of staying and eating there. We... More

Sheer excellence from menu, presentation, quality, wine pairing and such a dedicated team ensuring that we had the best possible experience of the Michelin star. If there was any niggle it was that a fellow diner being permitted to take the odd drag on an e-cigarette in the dining room when surely such an establishment deserves better respect.

Well presented and good value. Potential to be much better . Restaurant surroundings medieval but pleasant - ideally eat outside on the terrace

It was good weather and we ate in the beautiful terrace garden the has the best views in carcassonne. Also it is an escape from the chaos of tourists just outside the door. The service was impeccable... More

Eat here. No, really. Eat here, and have the tasting menu. It's the best option price wise (yes it's a lot, but it includes wine and eight courses). The entire menu looks amazing, so how do you choose? You don't. Let the chef choose for you. You won't be disappointed. If I could have licked my plate clean, I would.... More

We ate here for dinner ahead of going down to watch the fireworks on Bastille day. The food was based on a set menu with wine, amuse bouche and palate cleansers all included. The menu was worth of a Michelin Star and the setting is great with some of the best views from the cite walls. The restaurant lacks the... More
