“Delicious experience”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We ordered the duck and dorado, with the intention of sharing. Both dishes were beautifully plated and served with delicious side courses. Also ordered a chocolate dessert after a hard day's drive. Great service, congenial staff, a ilttle pricy. High quality food in an unpretentious, homey setting.

“a bad experience”
Reviewed March 7, 2011

Following a recommendation I thought I would try Le Carnotzet for lunch. Outside the menu du jour was confusing, chalked on Le Chateau de Pennautier menu boards. Inside the menu du jour was different and very basic for 17€. We saw the alc portions and opted for trout as a main dish only. After 30 minutes of being bounced about as the waitress pounded the planks, we enquired about our meal and were aggressively told that it took time to cook fresh dishes and we should be patient. 2 minutes later our trout appeared, overcooked and tepid. The pre-formed veg had clearly been reheated and lacked flavour and it was a greasy disappointing experience. We were left with stale burnt oil after-taste and didn't stay for dessert or coffee. Over priced at 19€ for the dish, as was the whole extensive menu for the rustic setting. Stressed waitress who responds aggressively to her clients - I won't be going back.

“Fantastic atmosphere and wonderful food”
Reviewed February 5, 2011

We live in Quillan near Couiza and having tried most of the local restaurants would always recommend the Carnotzet as our favourite restaurant. The food's always been delicious, the atmosphere lovely and the staff are very friendly. Having eaten here over a dozen times, we've always had a very positive experience and I'd highly recommend it.

“more miss than hit”
Reviewed October 30, 2010

I did not eat my meal and was offered no apology. The lamb was inedible. The mussels were burnt. The plates were cold, The plat du jour was advertised outside but not available inside. Four main courses with a glass of wine and a bottle of water cost 107 euros. It has put me off french restuarants which I always used to admire.
