We visited this restaurant inside the walls of the city of Carcassone not sure what to expect...maybe a tourist trap? Hard to believe, but it sure didn't feel like one. We had a beautiful meal and some dishes were definite highlights of our month in France. We tried a number of the specials, which were excellent as well as the cassoulet and crème brulée. The ambience of the city after dark is also out of this world. Highly recommended as a truly unique experience.

After a few hours looking around the picturesque Carcassonne, we were feeling hungry, there are so many places to choose from but we decided on Au Four St. Louis, it looked very nice and busy which is always a good sign. It is a lovely traditional looking restaurant inside, and seeing some of the food coming out to other customers, we knew we'd made the right choice. My dad had the French onion soup which was a meal in itself! I had the gratinated mussels which were so tasty, then I had the cassoulet, which was so delicious, didn't look that much but was more than enough, stocky, tender meat. My fiancé and mum dad had pizzas which also looked really good. I had the chocolate fondant as I'd chosen then Menu at €28, I didn't need it but it was actually much lighter than it looked and a great end to the meal. And the bill when it came was very reasonable for the food we had eaten. Would recommend this if you visit Carcassonne

Good lunch for a reasonable price with local dishes and local wines. Don't expect haute cuisine but just a nice meal served by friendly staff

We asked our hotel receptionist if she could recommend a restaurant and this was one of 2 she suggested and in our opinion the best, although it isn't much to look at from the outside. We called in during the day to book a table and they were happy for us to choose the table we wanted. We arrived a few minutes early but our table was ready and waiting and marked 'Reserved'. Apart from the standard menu they also have a Specials board. We had the chicken liver salad starter (Salade de foies de volaille aux pommes), but to be honest it was big enough to be a main course. Also can recommend the grilled veal with a cream sauce, although I guess not everyone is happy to eat veal. We would strongly recommend a Pichet (a carafe) of the House Red - 12 euro for 1L and very drinkable! Their desserts are a bit limited, but the creme brûlée was excellent. The main challenge was still having room for one!

Went in as a couple for a meal early evening and was greeted by a lady who was most off putting. She was not prepared to lay up a table for the two of us indicating she wanted more people in. She told us to walk around and come back later and they might be able to fit us in. Needless to say we did not go back. We in fact went to Les Terrasses de la Cite where we could not have had a nicer welcome and service.
