After quite a few heavier meals we just fancied a nice pizza. This place was good. Great meal, reasonable prices for the old town and the place was packed

We needed a break from the heavy French fare, so we stopped here for pizza and pasta. The pizza was the best I had eaten while in France. The crust actually tasted house-made, and the sauce was good too. The pasta was freshly made and delicious. We liked it enough that we returned to split a pizza before bed.

The Calzone Pizza was nice unit a raw egg was discovered in the middle! service and atmosphere was good, however, you could do much better. Toilets outside in the yard cold and no hot water.

Within the cite next to the entrance of the comtal. Restaurant definitely focus is tourists and is serves very touristy food. We had a omelet which was not very exciting served with terrible French fries and salad. Coffee was also bad. Would not recommend.

Ate here after walking around the medieval city with my wife in December 2016. Service was a bit slow to start with but they were busy as not all the restaurants were open and there were still plenty of people walking around. The food was good nd the wine was well priced, with a decent selection.

Serenaded by their musician and then the food arrived. Attentive staff and great tasting pizzas and simple green salad. Coffee and cognac to finish. I would recommend for a quick and... More

Carcassonne is an unusual place and this restaurant is something of an anomaly in the old city. Have eaten there several times now and enjoy it as a treat on our way home from Spain. I guess there are better restaurants, but for us the ambience and the slightly different setup makes it very appealing. Head chef has won international... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant in a hurry to get in out of the rain. It certainly did not disappoint. It has a very family friendly feel, the waiting staff were incredibly attentive, amusing and spoke very good English. We were offered English menus and while they appreciated our attempts at speaking French they were very happy to explain things... More

We wanted to have Cassoulet at an affordable price which had all the ingredients included. Luckily we found La Courtine and one of the owners Melanie. Despite the fact our time was limited and we were on a budget, we managed to get the 'real deal'. The Cassoulet was excellent and very filling. The reason, we are recommending this restaurant;...
