Reviewed November 15, 2019

We discovered this restaurant three years ago and now visit every time we are in the area - at least three times a year. We have never had a bad meal, or more to point the meals have always been excellent. Not expensive either. The...menu is not huge although something for everybody and this probably explains the quality of each dish. Wise to book as gets busy even during the week.More

I don't often write a review, only when something is exceptionally good or poor and sadly this was the latter. The food was well presented and both of our steaks looked perfectly cooked but they were more or less inedible. They were the toughest and...chewiest steaks I have been served in a restaurant. Not over or undercooked, just terrible. I wouldn't eat here again and can't recommend. We didn't complain as we don't speak good French but I certainly would have at home.More

Decent food, adequately presented. We ordered beef and pork, and frites/steak for the kids. Pork dish was probably slightly undercooked and I personally did not appreciate the 'porky odour'. The overall experience and service was great - restaurant has an elegant feel, modern deco and...a measured ambience, not overly boisterous, but not quiet either. Unexpectedly pleasant find.More

I stopped in here one night with two friends by chance and we enjoyed it outside seating and friendly waiters with a good understanding of English. I ordered the menu and was pleasantly surprised with the presentation and uniqueness of the restaurants dishes. Would I...recommend this to other vistors? Yes I would.More

This was probably the most distant restaurant in La Roche sur Yon from our car parking space by the bus station but was well worth the walk! We had looked at many restaurants on the way and had been impressed with the range of cuisines...on offer and the fact that many were buzzing with life. Le Karo is situated on a high walkway next to the market hall and has a large terrace and indoor space. The clientele is almost exclusively French and is clearly the sort of place where young professionals take new girlfriends or colleagues meet up after work. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent with amuse bouche being provided at the start of the meal. There was an error (in our favour) on the bill which we pointed out to the manager - this was dealt with very efficiently and we were not charged for our coffees as a thank you. All in all a very pleasant evening out so definitely would recommend. Probably best if your French is reasonable to best enjoy the experience.More

I had the menu du jour at 14.5 euros which whilst not something to shout about was good value and freshly prepared. One of us had a 300g steak which was very good and the other a vegetarian dish which was good if not imaginative....Service was excellent, very friendly if you try your rubbish franglais as we did and its a nice location if you get a table outside for lunch.More
