Frequent visitors to Carcassonne but this was our first visit to La Table Cave du Chateau and we were delighted. Great food, wine and service in a delightful setting. Looking forward to the next time!

Called here for a wine tasting followed by a meal on a group tour. The service was very good and the meal was excellent. Some of the wines tasted are available in the UK so hopefully can bring back a few memories of the holiday.

Lovely surroundings and an excellent meal. What more can you ask for? Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. We discovered that Chateau's wine is available back in England. One sip and you will be transported back to this lovely restaurant.

The wine was average but drinkable (that was for the 15 euro grands vins tasting). But almost all wine can be great if coloured by the broader experience, and this is where the service let things down. All up, the visit took two hours - half an hour waiting for somebody to appear, then half an hour waiting to be... More

Dear Mathew, I really regret your experience in our tasting room. I spoke with my colleague, and she explain me it was an unusual activity during your visit. I saw the belgium group you tasted with few days after, and they complein about this terrible day as well. I did my best to show them this treatment is not normal,... More

We popped into this restaurant for supper before one of the concerts in the International Piano series at the Chateau. We each had just a "plat" and the house wines of Pennautier. Excellent value and good service, and eating on the terrace in summer is very pleasant.

First time at this restaurant, although we had visited for wine testing on a few occasions. A set price menu with add ons. We choose the option with wine selected for each course. The food was good and well presented. The staff appeared to be one short, as the two guys were running trying to keep the near full restaurant... More

My wife and I went here during a week's stay in Carcassonne, on the recommendation of our apartment hosts. We were, it transpired, the only guests, however we were warmly greeted by the chef and waiter upon arrival and shown to a table in front of a crackling open fire. As the only diners in the restaurant, we didn't quite... More

Went with friends for lunch. Had a reservation but not necessary on Friday (Saturday lunch was fully booked). Good menu choice of 5 each starters and main. Good "proper" French cuisine here with friendly service and a warm log fire. Their own wine served with lunch was superb - we bought some from the shop afterwards. Go back anytime!

There is a good value prix fixe menu, with plenty of choice. The food is simple with good quality ingredients. A glass of excellent Pennautier wine is included in the price. The service is attentive. It is a popular spot and booking is recommended. If one is looking to buy some wine for holiday drinking then the adjacent cave has... More
