Best Languedoc restaurants Carcassonne: Chez Saskia

chez saskia carcassonne restaurantsThis little Languedoc restaurant next to the Hotel de la Cité inside Carcassonne's castle walls, offers classic French dining. Here you will find a proper cassoulet (not the poor imitations cooked up down the road). Other dishes that feature on the menu include lemon sole in beurre blanc and faux filet in a pepper sauce. The walls are covered in photos of the famous faces who have stayed at the neighbouring hotel, including Jacques Chirac, Winston Churchill, Yves Montand and many more. This restaurant inside Carcassonne's medieval city is open 7 days a week during the summer, but it is closed on Tuesday & Wednesday outside summer.
