One of the challenges I often have and often hear when visiting a region we are not familiar with is finding a good restaurant. I recently spend the afternoon in Carry le Rouet  (ask me about it if you are staying in la Maison Saint Jérôme, nice not too buys spot 🙂  ). It was late in the afternoon and we all fancied some fish. So we hoped in the car and headed to Carro.

Carro

We stopped in the little harbour of Carro . What I especially like about this town is the local feel of it. Carry le Rouet is an old fishing port which, I believe, mostly lives of tourism. But it has managed to preserve a nice, quaint look and is not yet over developed. It is very different from La Ciota which is much bigger though has still managed to also keep a nice feel. But these towns are getting rarer and rarer and Carro warrants a gentle stroll in the town. There are a few restaurants in Carro and you can find the list here but one of the go to place is Le Carro Bleu.

Le Carro Bleu

Unsurprisingly, what I do like about le Carro Bleu is, yet again, its feel. The place is really down to earth. It definitely has a quaint feel for it with its various “fish theme” decoration. The kitchen is “open space”, you see people preparing food. We had some “moules frites” and squid prepared in various fashions. There is a range of choices (see “la carte” in the pictures below). Price wise, expect a main course between €15 and below €20. You can find plenty more reviews on Google here. Bottom line, for a nice, chilled evening enjoying some fish food, le Carro Bleu is well worth it.
