Even though we entered the restaurant, having read next door's menus in error, we were not disappointed. From the 22€ menu we chose the lemon chicken for one plat and squid for the other. Both meals were delicious. The decor was unusual: black and white photo portraits, some toys and a few bits of architectural salvage, an eclectic mix which... More

We thought we were getting old and charming but what we got was simply old. The service was spotty at best and the food was disappointing. There are far better choices in Carcassonne such as Comte Roger. Our last night in Carcassonne and it was a bummer.

Fabulous restaurant tucked away in a corner. Delicious local cuisine with amazing collection of fabulous and quirky antiques. This is real authentic place, not a TripAdvisor plain vanilla, safe traveler suggestion.

The restaurant was quirky and the service and food was good however it advertised a menu outside which was not available once inside and by then we were committed hence the four rather than five star review. That aside the food was well cooked and the Cassoulets was one of the best I've ever had.

We had a delicious lunch while touring Carcassonne Cite. Convenient location. Had onion soup, and salads. Menu lunch for 12.50€ included casserole of the house, salad, and dessert was quite good.

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
