Went to this restaurant in an evening with a group of friends (12 people in total). Service was slow - to order at first, to get extra drinks, to have tables cleared, etc. The food though was good although the desserts were a bit hit and miss.

The pork fillet mignon was very dry, the lamb rack had absolutely no taste, and was barely warm.. The good news is that they offer a large... More

Escort to our table. Exquisite service. Fine French dinning from an excellent menu. Was pleasantly surprised by the bill. Not inexpensive but not extravagant. If you go you will... More

We had a truly memorable meal at La Maison Carrier on Christmas Eve 2016. Wonderful setting, friendly and welcoming staff and such fantastic food. The cheese board (or should I say trolley) was another course all by itself. Not for the faint hearted.

There are few restaurants in town where you can order multiple half bottles if wine and explore their wine list. This is one of them and it's an excellent one.
