Even though it was my first time in La Cité, it felt like I had been there before. It was a quiet night and we were lucky to have a special explanation of the origin of the dishes we ordered. The staff speaks fluent French of course, but also a some English and Spanish. As main dish I asked for... More

Got a table before the rush and even though very busy on a very touristy day the service was excellent and the food (we all had cassoulet) was very reasonable for the price. You won't be disappointed, sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy the atmosphere in this historical square

It was a nice lunch in the medieval Carcassonne. Duck dishes (one with orange sauce and another with cep sauce) were tasty but a bit fatty. Sangria for a couple was originally decorated. The service was good.

Last June, we dived into La Bonne Demeure in the middle of a cloudburst, and fell in love with the friendly staff, the wonderful atmosphere and the delicious wine and food. Today it was 30'C in the shade, so could the Cassoulet Royale stand up to scrutiny? You bet it could! Service was impeccable, and the Corbieres Rose beautiful and... More

This was a really nice stop, very french, the service and the attention were great, we asked about the traditional dish it was amazing cassoulet and some wine from the region. I recommend it to everyone who makes a stop at Carcassonne. Greetings from México.

We didn't eat in the main restaurant but chose its smaller partner down the side passage for a bit of sharing plate lunch. We had a picher of wine , a meat platter and cheese platter. All was lovely, the Camembert was unfortunately overlooked and tasted more like a soufflé.

Situated in the corner of Place Marcou a great place to rest and drink/eat after exploying the Medieval City. Friendly greeting with quick service, well worth a pit stop.

Came here for lunch. The waitress was very unfriendly. We asked her for water - she never brought it. She gave us the a la carte menu and we asked her for the set menu which was displayed outside (and she never brought it). Had to ask another passing waiter about the set menu and he told us about it... More

We had selected the canard which was on special for lunch. Not the most interesting of meals & you had to search for what was quite tasty duck, it just did not quack enough for me. That said, the Rhubarb Crumble was absolute heaven.

Four of us had lunch here on our arrival at La Cite, sitting outside in the sun! The moules et frites were delicious, as were the croquet monsieur's! Brilliant!
