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 was warm but came in a chiller bag. After we had drunk half it was... 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 your meal for the 12:00 to 14:00 window to get a good table and service.

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.

Only wanting a light meal,we opted for the tapas. The food was o.k, nothing special. One of the servers was grumpy, hardly device with a smile. The location in the central square was busy and windswept. Several times diners were covered in dust from the open area next to it.

The location is pretty... lovely spot to sit and have a few drinks. Unfortunately the food wasn't great(understatement!). Stringy steak and tasteless pasta. Even the cheese plate was below average.

Never had a cup of tea served in a tall glass before, we had to wait for it to cool down before we could hold the glass, and had to pay extra for milk 3:95euros each

Great service, wonderful view and good food all at a reasonable price. Who could ask for more? A great little place to stop for a bite and a drink while enjoying Carcassonne.
