Le Chaudron is near the centre of the Cite, but when you turn off the main street to walk down to the restaurant it feels like you are walking into a much quieter area, and the interior of the restaurant matched this feeling, feeling relaxed and homely.

I had the duck breast, which was superb, followed by the panna cotta. It was the third and final of our meals in Carcassonne and, although all were excellent, probably my favourite. Before visiting I'd read some comments about food in the Cite being poor and overpriced, but Le Chaudron proved that this is (at least not always) the case.

Recommended.

First the good points: the back garden is beautiful in the afternoon sun, and makes a great place to dine. So lovely and peaceful. The cassoulet was delicious.
Now the problems: the service was quite slow and worst of all, the green salad looked and tasted like it had been made the day before. The lettuce was limp and mushy. We were really worried after that, but then the cassoulet was so good it redeemed things a long way.

A very pleasant restaurant with a large outside terrace very close to the heart of old Carcassonne but just enough off the main drag (50 metres or so) to have a more intimate feel. The staff were helpful and friendly. The menu has plenty of choice (and some interesting English translations - Pig Spider Mustard Cream for instance) and is very reasonably priced.
The food was good rather than excellent but nothing disappointed and I would happily eat the goats cheese starter and the aforementioned "pig spider" (it's a very succulent cut of pork that, to be fair, doesn't translate easily) again.
I would guess there are better restaurants in Carcassonne but this provided good value for money and a very pleasant evening.

Was expecting something nicer based on reviews. The service was pretty good but the food was only so so, as was the decor. We had steaks which came with rather bland au gratin potatoes. Probably better places in Carcassone for the money.

We chanced upon this place when trying to find place open on a Sunday.

Luckily we reserved online an hour before we arrived, not sure we'd have got in otherwise.

Everything was perfect, from the service received, the quality of the food and the amazing value for money.

We had goats cheese and honey salad, confit of duck and panda cotta / ice cream. The quality of the food was exceptional!!

Definitely the best meal of our holiday, I'd absolutely recommend this place!!
