We knew this place as we bought our wine here several times, so we were really excited to find out what the restaurant might be like. Maybe our expectations were too high (due to their good quality of wine we really like) but what we...More

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.
