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.

    (Translated by Google) We had a great time, surrounded by a top team of waiters, all flowing like an orchestra. The different dishes with a few touches of truffles were delicious. Thank you to the chef for having prepared another dish for me to replace the red meat, and thank you to the whole team who took care of us for your humor and your kindnes...

Les différents plats avec quelques touches de truffes étaient succulents. Merci au chef de m’avoir préparé un autre plat pour remplacer la viande rouge, et merci à l’ensemble de l’équipe qui s’est occupé de nous pour votre humour et votre gentillesse. Au plaisir de revenir !
