Food OK... Service non existent.

What could be a nice Bistrot is spoiled by the surly and unfriendly waiter. He barely grunts and when he does speak he is abrupt and quite rude. We ordered a steak with Bernaise sauce, but it came without it. We had to ask for water which was slammed onto the table with no glasses. No check was... read more

Not much to look at from the outside but we were surprised that it turned out to be an excellent meal. The set 30 euro menu was excellent value and the service, perhaps a little rustic for some, was actually quite friendly and efficient compared to some French restaurants I've been to. Would definitely go back.

Looked a bit lacking in French charm from the outside, but was actually really good albeit it is not attempting to be French chic. Lots of normal French families enjoying Sunday evening dinner. We had a set evening menu with wine selection included. Generous glass sizes. Pleasant and unfussy staff who served us quickly. There weren't many other restaurants open... More

We ate in the bistro and really enjoyed the service and ambience so we returned the next night and ate in the restaurant side. Lovely surroundings, again excellent service and a fantastic 3 course menu for €25 -delicious food, great presentation.

We had dinner fairly late after just flying in from Australia and Carnot was near our hotel and as it turned out, a good choice. We both chose the menu de jour, mine was a salmon entre, a duck cassolet main, whilst a seafood salad entre and a steak main was my wife's choice and we both had an orange... More

We were in Arras for one night only - and as it was raining heavily went for nearby restaurant. The initial welcome was a bit 'cold' ... not very friendly, and the place was not busy. The menu arrived, we asked if thee was an English version ... No! (said with almost contempt) Management take an opportunity here - many... More

We visited in September 2014 as a group of 4 adults. We were promptly seated but when we asked if there was an English menu we were rudely told "no" by the middle aged male waiter, altho there was one posted at the front of the restaurant. He did not even offer us a drink. We left, never to return... More

We were recommended to go here by the owner of the apartment we were staying in. We went for dinner. We ordered a bottle of the House wine - the (rather surly) waiter brought an already open bottle which seemed to have spills on the label. He tried to tell us that it was the 'vin de table', we asked... More

If your first time in France, a good start for trying local specialities, or if not, plenty of choice of pork, beef and fish.
