The place and location are awesome as well as the staff! A little bit disappointed by the food that didn't surprised me but was "just" excellent.

This meal was included as part of a tour, the restaurant is fine dining, with exquisite presentation, but just too many ingredients for me. The staff were very attentive and clearly very well trained.

This is a Michelin starred restaurant, beautifully appointed and situated in the Hotel de la Cite. and while the food was acceptable, the service was absolutely awful.. We had to constantly ask for water and wine when we could actually get the attention of a waiter. The restaurant was far from full and there were many waiters. it was a... More

The restaurant is situated in L' Hôtel de la Cité and overlooks a pleasant garden that has lovely views of the ramparts, towers etc of La Cité. The building is impressive as is the cuisine! The meal, made using local produce, was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The staff were all really pleasant. The menu changes regularly and is... More

This restaurant is first class with a one star Michelin rating. Food is like a work of art. Lunch is 39 Euro but includes all the wine you can drink. We had asparagus quiche, quail and pannacotta for dessert. Our table overlooked the garden and the service was outstanding. Worth the money.

We visited for lunch on a weekday. The food was excellent and the service attentive and welcoming. This was our first visit but it won't be our last!

This is my favorite place in Carcassone. I ate here again in May and can't wait to go back again. The secret here is the chef uses simple ingredients that are perfectly prepared then tops them with a sauced that is paired for the meal. The sauce is poured at the table and the meal comes alive. Not a drop... More

We spent a few days at Hotel de la Cite and enjoyed the wonderful restaurant here for our wedding anniversary several years ago. We were passing the area at lunchtime, so decided to head into Carcassonne for lunch, but didn't fancy any of the tourist fare restaurants or Cafe's which showed very average looking menus at 25 euros upwards for...

We were enjoying our mini moon in this antiquated hotel and enjoyed an amazing meal here, 8 courses with wine on tap, including desert wine with a lovely pudding too. We were wonderfully tipsy without being too inebriated....brilliant, well worth it and a must do. Wold definitely return without hesitation.
