We went there for dinner and had a very pleasant evening. Very friendly staff and atmosphere with average food except for the desserts which are to die for. We had "Le cafe gourmand" which is an espresso coffee served with a plate of three desserts-brilliant!

Another hidden gem in Carcassonne. Small, cosy, informal and with great service & atmosphere. The food was not the best I’ve had so far in Carcassonne but the ambiance and friendliness made up for this. I had fois gras which was standard with toast and...More

Le Chaudron has a very pleasant, quiet, cool and shady garden area and on such a hot day, seemed like a sound choice for lunch. Reasonably large terraced garden at the side, rear and around the corner with plentiful trees to provide respite from the...More

Booked ahead, which was a good move as there was no room left about 15 minutes after opening. Thought the service might be slow as a result, but it was most efficient. Liked the small, shady, courtyard setting away from the centre and really enjoyed...More

This a friendly little restaurant with an series of set menus at different prices (17€ being the cheapest) as well as an a la carte selection. Food was tasty and quickly served. They did an interesting vegetarian platter which makes a nice change. The cassoulet...More
