This was a great find. The meal was well prepared, and the outdoor seating perfect on a fall day. The service was good and it was a busy day, so the staff were working hard and still providing quality service. Very nice experience.

This place is in the ideal location, right in the square at the heart of things. Would have really loved to have sat here all day to take in the relaxed atmosphere. The place itself is clean and modern but of course it is set in the rustic location of the amazing walled town of Carcassonne, The beer selection was... More

Stopped here for a late morning coffee and then decided to stay for lunch after seeing that the staff were really friendly, quick service and of course, spying on what was coming out of the kitchen at other tables! We ordered the meat and cheese platter and salad nicoise. The platter was really impressive and many passing by, looking at... More

Our family visited Carcassonne in October. We were there for 3 days and made 3 visits to Le Trouvere. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere was cozy and inviting.

We spent many evenings with a glass of wine and a good book in front of this cafe. Waiters were pleasant and helpful. Never hassled us to buy more. The food looked excellent as it went by us.

We have eaten at a lot of different places in the cité in the past few years, and this has been the best, from the wild boar stew to the calamars. Nice prices, good service

We recently ate here on the last night of our stay in Carcassonne. It was a lovely warm evening, so nice to sit at an outside table at this busy, bustling restaurant in the square. The food was fine, but I wish the waiter had given my some idea of the size of the meat and cheese that I ordered.... More
