We were a group of eight. We had an amazing meal here. Everything was authentic and good. The building itself is also very cool (don't miss the fireplace with the huge chimney for smoking meats). The desert table was great. You won't be disappointed.

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.
