My husband and I can be a bit difficult and persnickety with our dining. We picked this restaurant and were so glad that we did. The food was excellent. We picked off the recommendation of the restaurant and fully enjoyed the bounty of excellent food...More

I hesitated to make a reservation at this restaurant after reading the owner's ("Patrick E.") belligerent responses to negative comments. Especially when he equated his restaurant's wine mark-up with a dermatologist's fees (the latter requiring eight years of studies). But I love eating out and...More

Small Restaurant off the beaten track and we booked in advance. Very friendly attention and the food was top class. However service was very slow in terms of arrival time for the dishes and this would stop me returning.More

Genuinely enjoyable evening in a peaceful and welcoming setting. Our visit was for our anniversary and I am very pleased that my wife chose Carmen for our dinner. This is modern cuisine and in our experience was cooked very well. It's a simple menu which...More

This was clearly one of our best dining experiences in Versailles & Paris. Totally impressed from the beginning to the end by the 5-course dinner, and even my 7-years old daughter offered many "wow" comments on the dishes we had. The dessert (Crémeux citron for...More

My fiancé and I dined here after spending a week in Paris. It was one of the finest meals we had during our stay (visiting from San Francisco) in France. All 5 courses of the dinner were excellent and beautifully presented. The food at Carmen...More

I love food, and going out to a restaurant is something my husband do often and love, though for us not often enough. The food here was not only not exciting, but not good... The meat was over-cooked in the pig dish and the beef...More

It's no more Table du 11 but Carmen since few months. Anyway quite nice table. Fish cooking was just perfect, maybe missing veg with the duck but it was also very good. The tiramisu was maybe a bit heavy. No cheese proposed even if it...More

An excellent transition from what was already an excellent address - the food is beautifully prepared and delicious, the service perfect and the overall ambiance refined but relaxed.
