A restaurant in the Cité de Carcassonne

Chez Christine

apropos net

A sunny bistro paying tribute to the cuisine of the South West and the Mediterranean. A place to live and a culinary experience where everything comes together to surprise guests, a true passion for the art of entertaining.
The décor is rooted in the history of the place, with a contemporary, bright look. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, with natural, raw materials, light-coloured walls, antique objects and wine cabinets. The decor is by renowned architect Jean Philippe Nuel, and has been designed to create an elegant, soft ambience where naturalness makes its entrance.
Outside, take shelter under a pergola of wisteria to enjoy an enchanting setting in the heart of the Cité.

A 4-handed kitchen

filetblanc the chef

The menu is designed by Jérôme Ryon, Chef of the gastronomic restaurant La Barbacane in the legendary Hôtel de la Cité, and cooked by one of the talented young artisans of taste he trained, Mickael Espinet, now head of the kitchens at Chez Christine.

The cuisine is local and inspired by the region and the Mediterranean. The cuisine is both contemporary and traditional, and the combinations on offer break down the barriers between regions and eras.


& passion

apropos net

Both modern and traditional, Chez Christine's cuisine is deeply marked by its local roots. The produce is local and fresh, and the hospitality and generosity are as much a part of the service as the quality of the food. The twist on the plate adds an extra touch of soul that makes for a delicious experience.

The wines

filetblanc the chef

Excellence lies in attention to the thousand and one details, from the vine to the cellar, right through to the service of your wine.


Achieving the right match between food and wine, in the right glass, at the right temperature, reflecting the elegance of our dishes, sublimating the cuisine of our Chef and his brigade is an Art of Living. We cultivate it in our own way by selecting wines for you, but above all the people, the winemakers who reveal the grape varieties and terroirs throughout France, offering us a unique and timeless selection.


As Paul Claudel wrote: "The wines we choose create a triple communion: communion with the land from which it comes, communion with ourselves when we taste it and communion with others when we share it". Like you, he could have been part of our Cenacle!
