Michelin-star gourmet restaurant
At the heart of Carcassonne’s medieval city
The Hotel de la Cité has also earned a reputation as a top gastronomic destination thanks to its Michelin-star restaurant La Barbacane. At the very heart of Carcassonne’s medieval city, the restaurant has a Neo-Gothic dining room that will leave you enchanted with its superb fireplace, its stained glass windows, its high ceilings and its cathedral chairs.
In this authentic setting, you’ll be able to indulge in a flavoursome, colourful cuisine created by chef Jérôme Ryon. A native of Bourg-en-Bresse, the former second-in-command to the renowned Franck Putelat successfully took over La Barbacane a few years ago. Jérôme Ryon’s cuisine showcases the key ingredients including fish and vegetables from the Mediterranean region, as well as products from the region around Lyon (a reminder of his mountainous roots). Following seasonal patterns, he produces traditional cuisine reinvented with elegance and finesse, bringing a boldness to the classics.
Holding one Michelin star, the restaurant La Barbacane also benefits from a terrace with a brilliant view of the city walls.
