We spotted this restaurant on our stroll around the Medieval city and decided to try it for dinner - we weren't disappointed! Although the garden wasn't in use that evening the lovely old interior really has a fabulous atmosphere. OK it was full of tourists but that's what you expect, but the service was great and very friendly and the... More

We had dinner here on our one night in Carcasonne. Unfortunately outside was closed due to it being a bit cool we think. Service was excellent. We had the Cassoulet to experience this traditional French dish of beans, sausage and duck. The dish itself was quite tasty and we were recommended this restaurant for it, and it was probably cooked... More

This is a wonderful restaurant with a lovely secluded garden setting. Great food, good service and a real feeling of relaxation away from the bustle of the citadel. Many people on the ramparts tours will have looked down on the gardens from above but during the evening it is quiet. This is a real authentic restaurant frequented by locals rather... More

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.
