Excellent food, really well prepared and beautifully presented. Two niggles: the English language menu only comes in set-menu format, no a la carte offerings, and the service on the night we went was very slow. We weren't sure if it was just us as the tables either side of us both arrived and ordered after us yet somehow finished up... More

Booked a long time ago for dinner on Bastile Day not knowing at the time whether Le Carlotta would be open or not. They were and we were delighted to be back here again and welcomed by the staff and escorted to our favourite table. The restaurant is a classic French Brasserie decorated with items you wouldn't dream of having... More

A return visit (after five years!) finds this establishment still at the top of its game. Specialties such as freshest fish (rare to find and enjoy Dover sole!), and their famous 7 hour slow-roasted veal couldn't be better! Unobtrusive and helpful service make this a lovely place for a meal, day or night. Situated on the pretty Quai Vendeuvre. Well... More

We had driven up from the south to catch the 16.30 ferry back to blighty and managed to arrive in Caen at 11.45 and were lucky to get a parking space just over the road from my favourite restaurant in Caen. Seated and with a menu by midday we ordered an aperitif - non alcoholic for the driver. The specials... More

This was truly a wonderful restaurant. Filled with locals whom the owners knew by name packed, efficiently run, friendly staff, great food. I ordered scallops which were well prepared in a delicate citron butter sauce. Highlight was Babba rum desert which a nice couple at the table next to us recommended. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves excellent bar as well.... More

I love arriving for dinner here. After a long drive through France for the Caen to Portsmouth ferry this is the hostelry of choice for a last good French dinner! They have an excellent selection of menus from €28 up depending on what you feel like. Definitely something for everyone. Fabulous plats de fruits de mer, oysters, foie gras, lobster... More

Le Carlotta is an excellent restaurant with fantastic seafood and menu options at an exceptional value. There is a very welcoming atmosphere, tables are not too close together, and the staff has always been very welcoming to guests.

Excellent meal and atmosphere. The entree I had in mind was sold out. I guess many had the same thought. But the server's suggestion was excellent! Large windowed front wall provided a view of the Caen port across the street. I had a great lobster salad and beef with bread in a country that understands bread. The cheese cake is... More

Whenever I am travelling across the channel from Ouistreham to Portsmouth, a stay in the Mercure just across the Bassin St. Pierre is the first thing to book followed by my favourite table at Le Carlotta. My wife and I always get a great welcome from the staff here and we know from our dozens of past visits that we... More
