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.

    We booked this restaurant for our engagement anniversary. The place is special: it has beautiful castle view, terassa, greenery, very peaceful. We had the lunch menu. The food was good, but not too outspoken. We liked the kyr as aperitivo, very good. We also recommend the pistachio desert, which was the best thing from the entire lunch. Overall great!

    (Translated by Google) An authentic setting, relaxed service, quality cuisine.
    Special mention for the Oxyblue shrimp and the beef fillet, excellent. Small flat for appetizers (lack of originality) and cooking tuna a little overcooked.
    Special mention for the butler and his very pleasant welcome.

    Un cadre authentique, un service décontracté, une cuisine de qualité.
    Mention spéciale pour les crevettes Oxyblue et le filet de boeuf, excellents. Petit bémol pour les mises en bouches (manque d'originalité ) et la cuisson du thon un peu trop cuit.
    Mention spéciale pour le maître d'hôtel et son accueil très agréable.
