Not bad, but..

Food was very nice, but the guy who meet me was not polite and friendly, when I asked table on the terrace! I was alone and was not going to have long lunch! Not bad in general, but...

Stopped here for lunch near the center of Caen. Service was excellent and the food was just fantastic. Don't just stick to the menu. Starters can be done serves as main meal. Scallops were great and the starter mixed green salad with avocado in a pesto/olive oil dressing was also superb. Would highly recommend.

We ordered 1 person seafood platter and a set menu. The lobster was a bit over cooked and thus quite chewy. Oysters were fresh but the clams were so small that you did not want to waste time of taking the tiny meat out. The seafood platter was more than enough for 1 person. The medium raw beef was well...

You cannot fail to be excited by the belle epoque decor and well priced menu. The menu is wide ranging and would benefit from being simplified and more focused; choose well and you'll be alright. Service varied from supercilious to very friendly. Will we be back? Yes, every time we're in Caen.

A wonderful lunch. Perfect service. Classic French restaurant. What can you say? The French know how to dine, and the Carlotta proves it. At the end of the meal, order the Café Gourmand.

Very busy restaurant but the service was very quick. Food quality was superb. One of the best meals we've had in France. Quite a surprise. I had fish soup for lunch. Very good preparation. We also should escargot and oysters. I would heartily recommend this place. Best of all, their quick.

Typical French menu. Service was a little slow but they were very busy. We had to send a very tough steak back, but they had no hesitation in changing it. Worth a visit.

We were pleased with our dinner, great lobster ravioli. Complementary cheese and olives never hurts. When it came pay to pay, all of the servers disappears for 15 minutes. Must have been break time or another French strike
