Tapas sized portions, a lovely ambiance, the night swaying to the rhythms of a retro DJ. It is a perfect night spot.

The garden: beautifully decorated with strings of lights and quaint tables and chairs, set against the walls and towers of Carcassonne. I can't emphasize enough that the atmosphere here is enough to wow me, but would you believe - the food and service are just as amazing? We ordered the traditional cassoulet, obviously, and it did not disappoint. In fact,... More

We saw the garden cafe from the castle and walked after our visit to find it. It was a beautiful garden venue. The service was very goo and the food was excellent. We tried the regional dish, Casseroaut as well as the chicken skewers and a tomato salad special. The desserts that were delivered to tables around us created a... More

Called here for drinks on the lovely terrace. Nice atmosphere lively music and excellent choice of drinks & snacks. Had a look at the restaurant courtyard and would have eaten there but we discovered it too late!

Don't miss this. Book it in advance. The owner is so lovely. The food is outstanding. The duck for the cassoulet is roasted for 48hs before mixing with the beans. The wine selection is on the dot! Superb experience. Magret du canard also very well cooked and served with tiny slices.

It's not easy to find a good restaurant in the middle of the Cité Médiévale, with all the super touristy 'brasseries' and the sort. The place where we stayed recommended this restaurant; and I'm so glad they did! The Jardin de la Tour is lovely: good food, friendly staff, nice decoration and great ambiance; would definitely go back again!

We were the only diners so we had undivided service. The food was from the tourist menu, I tried cassoulet about 20 years ago and was not impressed but I thought, give it another go, and I'm still not impressed but it was hot and nicely served and I suspect would have tasted the same from any other restaurant. Give... More

Service was superb even down to trying to find the best table for us. Food was of a consistently high standard. Even the house wine was of a really good quality

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we ate there 3 times because it was so good. Very reasonable prices for excellent food. The Cremant was good too!

If you don't mind waiting one entire hour before any item of food appears on your table, then go ahead and eat here. How was the food? Not worth the three hour ordeal.
