We went with a group of 7 although most other tables were couples or smaller groups. We have been coming here for years and every time, our meal is more delicious and the service is always without fault. This year was another highlight, the Paella was a favourite of ours for a long time and it seems to be getting... More

My husband and I had an unforgettable experience in Ambrosia restaurant. From the outside you would have no idea how amazing the food is! My Mother has a home in Carcassonne and she let us know that we couldn't leave without having this dining experience. She was right! Course after course the presentation was beautiful and every taste was exquisite.

We have been coming to this restaurant for many years and have never been disappointed. Over the years, the ambience has improved massively so do not decide against an amazing feast by some of the older comments about the ambience. This family team is great, the son a Michelin and well deserving rising star. We come here for Xmas lunch,... More

We dropped in by accident as the Carcassonne city centre restaurants were all booked for a Friday night and we only passed through Pezens because of a trafic jam on the motorway. A last minute reservation proved successful, and we got assigned a table for two on the terrace. The young chef really knows how to cook as well as... More

In the process of gradually discovering the higher rated restaurants in our area, we visited this establishment for a celebration lunch on a recent Sunday – we arrived early which was lucky as it quite quickly became almost full; only one table was unoccupied which surprised us given the economic situation in France. Being a celebration, we chose the €60... More

Our dinner at l'Ambrosia was delighful from start to end - the great welcoming by the chef's father, the beautiful evening on the newly built terrasse, the rightfulness and taste of the food and its composing ingredients, the quality and friendliness of the service and the availability of the chef at the end. A well deserved 1* and a place... More

There is clearly a trained chef at the back of this restaurant as the food was very much michelin style fine dining, however the room is dismal and not the place to go for a special occasion or romantic meal. The owner and his waiting staff are friendly but over formal for my taste.

Welcome friendly, starters were excellent, prawns foam etc, yummy flavours, mains not a success for any of us. Good help with wine and excellent local choices made. Price probably a bit high. Decor is deep red in that Chinese restaurant sort of way. Not the experience we expected from a Michelin star restaurant.

Good food, Terrible service. It is the third time we have visited Ambrosia and the food was as always very good. However the service is terrible. All your drinks you have to pour yourself, bread is given like in a prison - once per meal. Your empty plates are left on the table until the new dish is coming...and that... More
