We ate on the terrace overlooking the very pretty garden. It is quiet and very atmospheric. The food was good traditional French cooking. Nothing exciting but just good stuff. We enjoyed our evening very much.

Restaurant is located in a pretty little hotel about 10 mins from Carcassonne. Excellent service. We had filet and Turbot. Starter of cold melon soup. Dessert was a chocolate custard type cake and cheese bases custardy flan type thing. Nice bottle of local white. Great food, service and surroundings. Would return.

Located in a centuries old mill, this restaurant couldn't be more charming. Surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens, it would make sense to be early and wander the grounds before dinner. The menu was classic French. From the asparagus creamy soup amuse bouche to the fresh sauteed foie gras to the fish and lamb to the home made sorbets, we could not have been happier with our meal. The tab came to 50 euro per person, a bargain.

Don't be like me, and narrow your choices to those restaurants with the Cité, or its close environs. The outlying villages (2-10k) harbour some gems, and this is one of them!

It is well-recommended in the Michelin Guide, and often these are better than many of the starred restaurants. The Chateau Saint Martin certainly ranks with many 1* I have experienced, in the ambiance, decor, service, the choice of wine, and - most of all - superb cooking.

We attended for a Sunday lunch in late September, having learnt of the restaurant and booked the previous day. We were welcomed, shown to a table (choice of inside, or out) and then given menu with a range of choices. We chose the €60 menu, and are glad we did. From the amusé bouche to coffee, each course was superb, well-timed. The wine list has a range of well-priced 37.5cl bottles of some vintage, meaning we could complement the meal with white and red wines.

The restaurant was probably two thirds full during our visit, and service was excellent.

STRONGLY RECOMMENDED!

This was next to our hotel (Hotel Bastide St. Martin) which was actually located in a neighborhood subdivision minutes from Carcassone. The walk was through a peaceful beautiful garden. Reservations are required and this night it appeared all dined on the back patio. This was elegant food, perfectly prepared with the usual 3 course dinner. The wine was local and the best we had in France. I had filet mignon medallions and my wife had the casserole. The desserts were superb. The whole meal paced for romance and the walk back to the hotel at dark was a perfect ending. This place is hard to find even with GPS but worth the adventure
