This is one of the few restaurants in Carros, and the only one that considers itself a fine-dining experience. My family and I came to celebrate an anniversary, expecting better food and better service than the usual fare. Unfortunately, we left disappointed. The service was uninspiring, they had ran out of beer (by 730pm!) but the key issue were the... More

Having used trip advisor (and the sat nav) to find this restaurant we were disappointed in the food. Essentially the seasoning, whether that was the usual condiments or the herbs, on virtually every dish was heavy handed. Service was good but that did not make up for a disappointing evening. It could, and should, have been so much better. The... More

La Forge is located at the entrance of the perched village of Carros. I enjoyed a wonderful lunch here on 21st June with my sister before flying back to the UK. The waiter was excellent. The food was exceptional, in my opinion. It is not often that you are presented with an 'amuse bouche' ...it was quite unexpected but so... More

Celebrating birthday with dear friends gives high expectations - and met them. Two times "Ode to truffles" and two times selections from the menu with truffles of course. A well prepared menu and good attention from the family staff. I'll be back😎

Lovely little rustic restaurant at the foot of this village. Excellent dishes from a menu. There is also space for dining outside during the summer months.

Nestled at the entrance of medieval Carros, the setting is extremely engaging. A welcoming crew does not absolve a cruel disillusion when noticing an …oven warming up all the dishes! Here no traces of a chef composing with pots and pans, just an …oven. Finally but not least, for an average of 40-50€ pro person, an extremely overrated place.

Driving from Beaulieu-sur-Mer in mid-March to catch an overnight ferry from Toulon to Corsica, we had time to spare so decided to head for the hills above Nice to look for a place to lunch, and came across this gem in deserted Carros. Welcoming staff (father and young son, we think) and one of the best risotto dishes we have... More

We visited this lovely little restaurant on a beautiful sunny day. It is located in Carros Village and there is a wonderful view across to the Alpes-Maritimes in the North. It is a family business and we had an excellent welcome from the patron and his attentive staff. We were seated comfortably, the food was of very good quality and... More

This small and specialised restobar is simply the best. I liked the food and ambience equally and the owner and staff are equally interesting.

Our entrees were very lovely, but the appetizers and desserts were even better. Comfortable indoor seating and attentive owners....
