The best sorbets in the world

Although it was a thursday evening the restaurant was very busy but we were shown to a nice table. The set menu was excellent, the house wine very reasonable and the service good. We were both so full we chose the sorbet selection as dessert and it was 3 scoops of the best and most unusual... read more

Dropped into Le Carlotta without a reservation and the waiter was more than pleased to find us a table. He was also very attentive and helpful during our dining experience. I had the escargot to start, fantastic, which was followed by the seafood platter. - excellent! Topped it off with the cheese plate an a 10 year old ruby port.... More

We, as a group of Americans, decided to have an early dinner; much earlier than the French are accustomed to dine. We arrived at La Carlotta and they were not open yet and, as it had been recommended, we stopped next door for a glass of wine. When they opened they came and got us. It is lovely inside. We...

Great fruits de mer and for kids the omelette is a winner. Lively brasserie ambiance, the real French one. If you come later than 1930, better book a table as the place fills up rapidly even on weekdays.

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner with the family. Les escargots along with Supreme poulet was an outstanding experience. An excellent Bordeaux red wine made the evening an event to remember! All the above at an affordable price!!

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...
