Chose this place because of the nice outdoor terrace overlooking the castle walls. The food was ok but the waiters were abrupt and surly and acted as if they would rather be elsewhere. The waiter even went off to speak to some other customers with our order in his hands. Unprofessional and would not recommend. There are plenty of far... More

I'm probably only giving it three starts because I accidentally ordered about a bottle of Rose. It happens. The Rose is lovely. I had an omelette because I am the opposite of enamoured with French good. Free water. Good wi-fi. People brought their dogs in. I had to wait about 10 min before someone took my order. So yeah that... More

Wait staff helpful - steered us to the inexpensive but excellent Rose Gris wine. Food was overall mediocre to above average. Salad disappointing. Entree was ok to good..Dessert was excellent. If not for the great location and the mediocre competition within Carcassone, this restaurant would not make it on the food alone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here at Le Saint Jean! Our server was extremely attentive and friendly. We all ordered off the Prix Fixe menu everything was tasty and well cooked. I particularly enjoyed my Camembert appetizer and the Creme Brûlée for dessert...the whole meal was a great value! Nice house wine...the 1/2 carafe was more than enough for the... More

The restaurant had the feel of just being re-opened. Few customers, dusty. The Adelaide next door was far superior. The food unexciting.

This cafe is slightly off the main route in the citadel. We had a drink in the sunshine and this developed into a lunchtime snack. The menu is limited but the food is ok. The location is nice and the atmosphere good. Don't expect top cuisine but good for a quick snack.

We arrived late, when they were about to close, and were more than willing to serve us. The food was average but the service and the price and the location was fantastic.

We found this restaurant from a family guide book. Even in February, the place was packed on a Saturday night (glad we made a reservation when walking by earlier in the day). From cocktails to dessert, we all had a great dinner. Even our 5-year old son enjoyed the steak hache from the kids menu. We will definitely be back,... More

We arrived in Carcassonne on Christmas Eve to find that most restaurants were either fully booked or closed. The maître d' at the La Barbacane restaurant in the Hôtel de la Cité Carcassonne suggested Le Saint Jean and even called to make a reservation for us (Thank you Gaetan). We were warmly welocmed by the owners and received excellent service... More
