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 PLÔ - AUBERGE MEDIEVALE


LE PLÔ - AUBERGE MEDIEVALE - 23, Rue du Plô 11000 Carcassonne

There are restaurants everywhere in Carcassonne and it is hard to judge where to go. Some  are good, some are acceptable, but a few are just there to attract tourists once. We visited the little restaurant Le Plô, which had got a large number of recommendations from the major guides and looked nice.

It was a very nice experience. We were in a bit of hurry as our guests had to catch I plane in Toulouse and it was one of the very heavy days on French motor-ways. We just took one dish each and asked if they could serve us quickly. Even if the restaurant was packed the food came almost immediately.  Two of us had sirloin which was perfectly cooked to our liking and very tender. It can, unlike in Sweden, be a problem sometimes to get tender meat in France if you do not order file or entrecote. I had a confit de canard that was one of the best I have had. It was stuffed with figs, very tender inside and crispy on the outside. The third person had a salad that did not had the same quality as the rest.

The restaurant has a small inside room and a large very nice covered outside space. Both places were almost full of guests when we were there.
