We stopped off in Poitiers before flying home, the restaurant is in the centre of town and seems to price itself accordingly. The decor, ambience and service was good but the food disappointing and expensive. We should have probably gone for the plat du jour for better value but instead I had the pave (chewy) and my husband the burger - which was ok. Both accompanied by fried potatoes which again were just ok. For the price the whole thing was disappointing, we felt ripped off to be honest and regretted not stopping off at a McDonald's instead. Not quite the experience we had hoped for.

Waiting staff in crisp black and white lend this very comfortable restaurant a touch of class that is reflected in the food and it's presentation. Continuous all day service, great outside seating and a menu that aims to please. Everyone appears to be having a good time - recommendation in itself.

We had a wonderful evening here for Valentines, it was a set menu with two choices for starter and main with a shared dessert. The restaurant was at full capacity and the staff handled the evening perfectly.
A big thank you to Mika who took care of us for the night.
We will return.

Went with friends after trip to cinema. Grateful that food served all day long as we were early (6pm).
Good choices on menu and the place was still nicely decorated from Christmas.
Comfortable seating and clean linen.
Service pretty good although considering it was pretty empty the food was a little slow.
We had two raies, a beef burger and a lamb burger - all got good reviews from their consumers.
Overall quite happy and will almost certainly go again.

We asked our hotel to recommend a couple of places to have lunch and 16 Carnot was one of the recommendations. We chose to eat inside on this occasion and was placed at a two person table with plenty of room, which was a good start.

We commenced lunch with Veloute de Cepes (mushroom soup) and it was very thick with mushrooms (could have been a bit hotter) this was followed by La Sole Meunière which was expertly deboned at the table by the waiter. I chose the Entrocote Francaise which was a very generous piece of beef cooked perfectly pink in the middle as I like it. It came with a generous helping of potatoes and a lovely sauce on the side.

To top it off we had the Dame Blanche which is ice cream, chocolate and chantilly cream - absolutely delicious. Our wine was a Chateau Senejac which was fine.

The restaurant was quite busy with locals on this Saturday afternoon and all in all it was excellent. A nice touch was the fresh roses or tulips on the tables.
