The restaurants recommended in this blog have all been visited by me and my wife and often with friends. We have visited them at least once. I only recommend restaurants that have a quality that, in my opinion, makes them worth a visit.
Some are world class restaurants, some are very simple, but the food is always worth the price and the chefs have prepared it with pride and love of good food.
The food is essential for being mentioned here. Minor problems when it comes to service and other things are mentioned but does not disqualify them from being recommended.
We have also eaten in some restaurants in the area that do not leave any memories worth writing about.
Finally we have been to very few bad restaurants and have been badly serviced in a few.
These three categories are marked differently in List of Restaurants.
marks our special restaurants. On the map they are found by the red marks and in the search term list under coup de ceur

LE PARC

LE PARK - 110 Chemin des Anglais, 11000 Carcassonne
Guide Michelin

Le Parc is one of three restaurants in Carcassonne, which has a Michelin star. According to the guide is Franck Putelat aspirant on another star soon. He has already crowned his career with the prestigious Bocuse d'Or 2003.
The restaurant offers a delicious lunch menu based on local products, processed to perfection. The menu we had was mainly based on seafood as squid, sea snails, rock fish, mussels and tuna. Some of the dishes are a bit odd, but surprisingly tasty. One combine meat and fish or seafood in many dishes that is unusual, but very nice. The prices of the wines are reasonable for a restaurant of this class and you can buy wine by the glass and also in half bottles.

The restaurant is located at the foot of the ancient fortress of La Cite in Carcassonne, easily accessible. Like most restaurants, which attained a Michelin star, the food may not be described easily. we can however say that there is a difference between one star and three stars, but this restaurant could certainly live up to a higher ranking in the near future. For a restaurant of this class it is very reasonable with a lunch menu for 30 Euros as it was when we visited the place. That is for two for a little over 1oo Euros including wine and coffee and sweets are reasonable. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the terrace where we sat is airy and pleasant. Service is relaxed and knowledgeable and there is no hint of snobbery on their part.
