Local produce and a vegetable garden, the linchpins of our gourmet cuisine

  • Michelin-starred gourmet restaurant

  • In the heart of medieval Carcassonne

  • Vegetable garden and honey from our beehives

  • Regional wines and signature cocktails

Discover La Barbacane, a Michelin-starred restaurant in the middle of the medieval city of Carcassonne. Enjoy dishes made with local produce and taste quality regional wines in an enchanting setting, or take time out from daily life on our leafy terrace with sublime views over the fortified town.

Named in honour of the barbican, part of the historic city fortifications, our century-old restaurant sits at the heart of medieval Carcassonne. Soak up its remarkable atmosphere in the majestic dining room, decorated with beamed wooden ceilings and stained-glass windows.

Our chef takes his inspiration from local producers and Mediterranean fishermen, taking pride in creating recipes using vegetables and herbs from our garden. Try our signature dish: fillet of Aubrac beef and foie gras, baby carrots and dauphinoise potatoes with summer truffles, served with a rich Périgord sauce.

Take a breather on our panoramic terrace to admire the spectacular views over the ramparts and Bastide Saint-Louis. Relax in these peaceful surroundings and sample a Rigolo Spritz, our signature, vermouth-based cocktail, created in collaboration with Carcassone's artisan liqueur maker, Cabanel.

    My husband and I had the set lunch menu in May.

    The staff were impeccable, the venue was utterly stunning and the food quality unrivalled. The desert was by far the best we've ever had.

    Taking in to consideration the high quality of food and service, the lunch menu seems incredibly good value. I've often spent a lot more on food that was nowhere near as good.

    I'd absolutely recommend taking a glass of blanchette out on the terrace in the sun. The wine was delicious and the views made holiday memories that will last a lifetime!

    Service great, it’s a long wait between courses. Don’t be scared of the menu: goat, pigeon etc.
