Popped in this restaurant for a couple of drinks late in the afternoon when the shops started to close in the medieval city. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, and has an open fireplace in the middle of dining room, making it very romantic and cosy! Staff are very nice, and their drinks recommendations were spot on! The local wine... More

An awesome location in the centre of Carcassonne. One of many similar restaurants but well worth dining at.

We took a punt on this restaurant, just because it looked quaint - and we were rewarded with good food in very pleasant surroundings. There are a few menus to suit taste and/or purse, with a wide selection of meals. The cassoulet was very good and the steak was very tender. There were some guitarist singers playing live during our... More

A tasteful dark but well furnished place with a lovely cosy atmosphere. Staff were very accommodating however not that overtly friendly..however nice enough. There was a charming elderly lady there that finished off dealing with us. Anyway we had a beautiful three course meal: onion soup, leg of duck and a classic Carcassonne 'Cassoulet' finished off with orange crepes and... More

We ordered grilled duck breasts and watched our server barbecued them for us in a wood fire pit. He also prepared the potatoes the same fashion. We really enjoyed this dish as the meat was tender and juicy. Highly recommend.

It was a quiet dark night. Christmas lights were twinkling as we made our way up and up through the twisting medieval cobbled streets. We perused several menus and finally settled on des Troubadours, owing to the quaint ancient building and candle lit interior. What a treat! Although we were the only customers at first, the restaurant and staff were... More

Steaks cooked on the wood fire, salmon, mussels, French onion soup - all are superb. A lovely relaxed ambience with some nice live music all set in an historic restaurant. If you are... More

We were in Carcassonne for a few days and popped in for an evening meal, right from the friendly welcome, the staff were great. My wife is a vegetarian and my daughter is a very fussy eater but there was plenty to choose from. When the food arrived it was plentiful and very tasty. I would reccommend anybody to go... More

I was most surprised to walk in and be greeted by a pleasant Scottish tones. We were early and it was quiet so we had choice of seats. We chose a cozy table by the fire. We might have assumed the fire was decorative; but no! It is used to grill steaks - great hunks of meat, chicken legs and... More
