This restaurant is in La Cité de Carcassonne (France). It serves homemade, traditional food that's completely natural. It's not a pretentious place. The decor, for me, is a bit retro, with an attempted medieval touch. They have a room on the ground floor and a terrace on the inside, two dining rooms on the upper floor, a small, more intimate room and one large diningroom. We had Cassoulet (off the menu, 15 €) with two glasses of regional red wine (3€ each glass). The portions were very generous and delicious. They give you a complimentary appetizer upon arrival. Like all the restaurants in the region, they offer daily menus (between 12-20 €) and à la carte (€ 12-15 entrees), with regional specialties. I recommend it if you are interested in the food and not the decor. Normal service, friendly and cater to your needs.
Situated in the center of the citadel of Carcassonne, the Comte Roger has been recognized by major guides in France for its excellent cuisine, a product of the fusion of tradition and innovation. Sylvie and Pierre Bureau are the managers and they change the menu constantly, adapting to fresh produce in the market. Although they give personal touches, this is an excellent place to try the famous Cassoulet Languedoc. Other dishes are also recommended such as the crab ravioli with basil, the young vegetables, and Sauteed Veal with asparagus medallion country. The restaurant has an excellent wine cellar.
It is a restaurant inside the Cité of Carcassonne (France). A comfy, elegant and nicely decorated one where you are welcomed with kindness. It also has a dining room, 2 terraces, one at the entrance of the restaurant and the other across the room, with a sunny patio on the 1st floor , as well as another room for private events. I wanted to try the Cassoulet and did not expect to go to Castelnaudary to do so. My dinner was a Cassoulet and two glasses of Blanquette de Limoux. Do not order dessert, because, this dish was too blunt for the night ... I must say it was good, but I found the portion of white beans a bit small and the bread were a bit cold. The price was 23 € with bread and water included, per person. They offer different menus of traditional dishes (15 €, 18 €) and a children's menu (7 €), plus the menu (15 € half the main plates). I will recommend it as a nice restaurant, with a good atmosphere and good value for money.
Carcassonne is like a little Disneyland; around the castle and the church there are hundreds of restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a bite to eat. Almost everywhere you go, you can try the cassoulet, a bowl of white beans accompanied by duck leg and pork sausage. We couldn't go to Carcassone without trying it, so we stopped into his restaurant. The cassoulet here is delicious and filling, for 10 euros; you won't need to eat anything else!
In Carcassonne, cassoulet is almost a religion. It's everywhere, on every corner, in every restaurant, and on every menu. Its recipe is even written on the walls, so it'd be almost sacrilegious not try the dish during a visit to the city. It's quite filling, but like any regional cuisine in France, it's ultimately delicious.
We didn't want to leave the city without trying the cassoulet for which Carcassonne is famous, so for that we asked a local to recommend us the best place. La Brasserie du Donjon didn't disappoint! We also tried the red rice risotto which, although small, was delicious. We ate out for less than 40 for two, with dessert and a glass of wine each.
In the heat of summer, it's nice to find a spot like this, next to the cathedral of Carcassonne. This bar's special feature is its facade, simple but sleek, with a beautiful walled garden. Inside the garden, special evenings are held with music, and tastings of local produce like cheese and bread. The bar, as the name suggests, specialises in regional wines exclusively, including the distinctive and delicious white wine called Blanquette.
A very good restaurant in Carcassonne, with different dishes like cassoulet and pizza. The quality : price ratio is great, so we ate here twice. The restaurant has a beautiful terrace, near the city centre and the station. If we go back to Carcassonne, we'll definitely eat here again!
