After reading the reviews we went there. Staff quite friendly for French standards. I’ve eaten better cassoulet before but for the price it was very good not greasy at all. Unfortunately the decoration isn’t a cute French restaurant. On the other hand we popped into...a few to see if we could find a cute French restaurant but they were all modern. Anyway I recommend for this price it’s very good.More
Stopped at Cafe Lucien in October this year looking for nice lunch boy did we get that we were lucky enough to be seated in the lovely outside setting.
I had a tuna salad which was very very refreshing and my husband had what he...said was the best Fish dish he has had, it was the catch of the day Cod with Pesto sauce...More
Visited here on the last day of our stay and had the €19 set menu. It was delicious, the Salad with poached eggs and chorizo was frankly gorgeous, there are so many great eating places in the Citie, but this is one of the best
We visited Carcassonne this week and chose Cafe Lucien for lunch. We arrived at 12.45 hoping to eat but they were full. The staff recommended making a reservation and said they would have a table an hour later. We decided to do that. I would...strongly advise choosing your lunch destination in advance using trip advisor and making a reservation beforehand if you want to eat in the medieval city in the summer tourist peak! When we returned an hour later the table was still busy, but there were seats available in the front of house to wait. We waited a further 25 mins (along with several other groups) and
strangely they did not offer us drinks or menus to start making our choice. A missed opportunity for them revenue wise as we would easily have had a second round of drinks with our meal! Once our table was ready, we were shown to a calm and shady garden area and a lovely table under a tree, and the service and food were delightful. The set menus were very good value (eg €18 for 3 courses) and the dishes we chose were all tasty and generous. The burger was delicious, the penne pasta was "scrummy" (according to my 10 year old!), the cassoulet was lovely and the seasonal salad was really good (it was basically a tuna nicoise without the green beans). Super icecream for dessert and my teen daughter had the chocolate tarte which was fabulous! In summary, a great place for lunch in Carcassonne medieval City but make sure you book your table in advance!More
Myself, my wife and two daughters had an excellent meal in this restaurant during our visit to the medieval walled city of Carcassonne. There are many options to choose from in the city and we must have looked at at least half of them before...we chose this one. The prices on the menu seemed like very good value. Service was quick and unobtrusive which is exactly what you want. Most importantly though, the food was lovely. Great choice on the menu. Between salads, fish and the catalan cassoulet, we all had something we liked and nearly all the choices were on the set menu as well as the a la carte. I had the cassoulet which contained beans sausage and duck. Gorgeous! In fact everything from starter through to dessert was top notch! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone visiting the old walled city.More
We stopped in for lunch while exploring Carcassonne. There are a few tables on the sidewalk, but give them a miss and eat in the very pleasant courtyard inside. The staff is friendly and the food is awesome. The cassoulet is excellent - give it...a try if you've never had it before.More
We arrived on a cold and windy afternoon. We were hungry. Café Lucien was open. No table cloths and small. We were hungry. We were extremely happy with out cassoulet, our wine and our service. Very friendly. Very good and rich cassoulet. We would return...and enjoy again.More
