This is a superb restaurant in a rural location within 20 minutes of Carcassonne. As it is off the beaten track you need to be sure of your directions to find it.
The “chambres et tables d’hotes” is run as a true family business. Unusually for a B&B they run a full restaurant service throughout the year. You can choose the number of courses you have. It is superb value for money.
We chose the 3 course “surprise” dinner, which means that Jolanda checks the party’s dietary preferences on the telephone, and then constructs a meal round that. They have their own kitchen garden so the vegetables are very tasty. Chateau de Cointes wines (the best local vineyard on the Roullens side of the massif de Malepere) were served with our meal at an all-inclusive price, but the family are moving to a new formula from November, to allow a wider choice of local wines at a variable price. Our meal was superb. The service was extremely friendly. We had a corner table, next to large picture windows so could enjoy the night view of the lights of the Cite de Carcassonne.
This restaurant comes highly recommended.

We loved the views from the accommodation, the food was excellent and we enjoyed our chats to Jolanda and Naomi Esmee.

Each dish has been thoughtfully chosen and prepared by our host Jolanda who clearly loves what she does. The balance of tastes is exquisite and from the looks on the faces of the other diners, we knew we were onto a winner!

We happened upon this jewel of a boutique hotel/restaurant when looking for the villa we had rented near Carcassonne because we were in dire need of directions. It's a very rural, remote location. The family was welcoming and helpful. The place looked, elegant and professional - so we decided to try it for dinner. We were so glad we did.

When you call to reserve they ask what foods you don't like. Then they prepare a special surprise meal for you. Our party of 6 had our own dining room. We ate inside because the weather wasn't great. However, had the weather been good we would have eaten outside and enjoyed a fantastic view! Before dinner we were served local wines and this continued throughout the evening.

The meal was superb and the service from the family was excellent. The food and wines were all local. They grow produce in their own kitchen garden. That said, some more fresh vegetables with the main meal would have made the experience flawless.

This is one very special restaurant and I highly recommend you try it!

Please note: they don't accept credit cards. This is something I think they should change in their own interests.
