I don't know where to start...I left the restaurant already planning my return and thinking of those I could share such a treasure with... The setting is 1920s/1930's club style...wood pannelling, attractive cocktail bar. The dining room is elegant and understated. The wine list is exquisite - I confess that I did not get further than the regional wines for... More

La Barbacane is in a beautiful building with a very luxurious old world feel! The dining experience is similar, with a very proper, reserved feeling. The food is very good as well, but nothing very innovative. We had a lovely time, but we are personally more attracted to creatively presented meals at Michelin restaurants.

We booked in advance through our hotel, and I think this is usually required. Best meal we had in Caracassonne and would completely recommend. We went for Sunday lunch and had a 4 course meal, with champagne and wine, for €35 per head. Food was divine, service excellent and ambiance great. Would completely recommend - and successfully encouraged friends to... More

My dessert choice of Rhum a la Baba (normally avoid this as usually sickly sweet) was just superb - light, fresh, elegant, in short DIVINE. Wish I... More

This restaurant is close to the Hotel de la Cite and offers good quality food with oversized appetizers, at reasonable prices. Service was excellent. Gluten Free dish options were identified by the staff.

Fine dining restaurant, must book, predrinks in lounge. Service was slow as we were two women together with no man in our company. That situation often incurs poor service with other groups with men getting better more prompt attention. Just a little irritation. The meal ordered from the longe( waiter comes and asks for our selection from the menu with... More

Restaurant was over priced, full of very slow staff, another guest brought a dog into the restaurant and we had to argue ! with the waiting staff to get them to bring us something as simple as some butter to accompany the bread that they brought to our table and left for 20 minutes. The food when eventually it turned... More

There were three fish on the menu and we ordered one of them. They only had one order left although our reservation was early in the evening. They substituted Sea Bream which was good. The service was excellent and the room pleasant and quiet. However, the food was ordinary. The amuse bouche was again only pleasant, as was the fish.... More
