I see that people have criticised the service in La Girouette, but we found it to be excellent. The waiter struggled a bit with the English language but not to the detriment of the service we received. He was friendly and prompt with menus, drinks...More

Please don't go to this restaurant. Service is very rude and takes very long. The cassoulet was almost only beans, with virtually no duck. The sangria is a shame to French winery. The owner, a very rude woman, was smoking INDOORS, just by the kitchen....More

My family decided to go off into the old town for a nice evening meal. To our dismayed suprise, what we received from the establishment was of incredibly poor standard. Each of the adults ordered a starter alongside a main, whilst the children ordered a...More

After a big lunch I was just looking for a hamburger and coke. Sat outside where the dust & dirt blew through. The food and service were OK but I was not expecting much except for a burger.

We visited literally 5 minutes after we got engaged, the staff were lovely!! Beautiful wine, and the owner gave us some of the home made rum which was delicious! Great location, lovely food and a good wine list. Can't wait to return when the roof...More

This is one of so many restaurants within the walls of the ancient city of Carcassonne. We chose it for convenience's sake but wouldn't return there. It was just "all right." The interior decor was strangely modern in an ancient city. All was clean, the...More

OK, you eat in the tourist square in the cité. What do you expect. Well, not surly and frankly useless staff who make you feel unwelcome. We had to ask for fresh bread as what they had brought us was hard and stale. The wine...More

We chose this place simply because it had a spacious square in which our toddler grandson could have space to play if required. It was a bad choice: poor, surly service; unappetising food; bar area thick with smoke (customers were smoking inside); overpriced.

We had low expectations after several other restaurant visits in Carcassonne. It was a hot day and we wanted to get to a relaxing lunch before the rush. The meal was great, the service was great, the ambience was great. The trick is to time...More

Disgusting food and service. Ordered Duck which tasted and had the texture of beef. My husband ordered Chicken and was ok. Main meal came but we had no cutlery and was a big impose to get more. Don't bother.
