Restaurant was not open and could not check in until 5pm. Comfortable room in a very traditional auberge.

I really enjoyed my food at Le Ratelier. It had both looked great and tasted delicious. I was really amazed at how much effort should it take to make my cuttlefish look as it did! The check per person there is between €30-50, but the food is worth every cent spent. You don't get a personal waiter there, instead each... More

We had an excellent meal while we were staying at the Carnac Thalassotherapy Hotel. we happen to be there the first night after the vacation opening in February. The prep work was exquisite. Go there with empty stomach and enjoy the recommendation that come from the lady owner.

We arrived at 6:45 only to have the waiter tell us they didn't open till 7 and did we have a reservation? We went in just after 7 and were asked if we had a reservation, we still didn't. The server was the epitome of the old feeling about French waiters, we weren't good enough to be served. When my... More

This was the best meal we had in Carnac. The food was simply delicious, I went for the EUR34 menu and my husband went for the EUR39 menu. Both were beautifully presented and cooked with flair and imagination. We had small children with us and the children's menu was perfect for those children who are fed up with chicken nuggets...

We had the basic menu de jour. Terrific flavours. Lovely fish. The place was quiet on a Monday lunchtime. It there was any justice it would have been full.

We only ate breakfast which was delicious, but we heard the dinners are a must. We stayed at the auberge, and the dining area was full each evening.

Le Ratelier kept us extremely happy on a recent Tuesday evening, as we enjoyed an excellent dinner served in relaxing surroundings. The restaurant, which also has eight guest rooms (can't comment on that aspect, as we haven't stayed there), is in a skillfully-restored old farmhouse located down a narrow street, more or less in the middle of the town of...

At the end of a long day's drive in foul weather we stumbled on Le Ratelier as our last hope . Amazing how something brilliant always seems to turn up in France . Just when you are resigned to toughing it out in some concrete box for the night and eating pizza , you find something like this . The... More
