Surprisingly good

An excellent restaurant recommended to us by our French hosts. Behind an unremarkable facade is a wonderful restaurant serving imaginative dishes. Attentive and friendly service, great value for money and exceptional food - a restaurant I will be glad to return to.

Inventive, delicious, gastronomically serious while still being a good local restaurant. We stayed here as a family (with 9 and 11 year old) and family friendly. A delightful haven mid cycling tour offering civilised food in a lovely space with friendly service. Best restaurant in the Marais I think (and to be fair priced accordingly).

We (2 adults and a 16 year old boy) visited this restaurant when on holiday last summer and enjoyed it so much we were eager to go back. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere, quality of the food and service were excellent. My dessert, which was 3 separate dishes made of apricots, was one of the best desserts I have... More

We were staying at the Venise Verte campsite near coulon (excellent), and cycled the 2 Kms into the very pretty village of coulon for lunch. Parked our bikes right outside the hotel and the menu looked appealing. 2 courses for €16.40, 3 for €20. We sat in a pretty covered courtyard and had 3 courses. Presentation and care taken were...

We were celebrating my birthday and wanted to find a special restaurant, and we found this in Le Central in Coulon, part of a 3 star hotel in the very pretty town, which in itself is well worth a visit. The food was excellent and nicely presented, prices very reasonable and we enjoyed it so much we managed to fit... More

It has a nice atmosphere, the tables are well spaced, allowing for quiet conversation.We were a party of 4 adults and a 7 year old.The service... More

We visited Hotel restaurant Le Central by visiting Coulon, France. We didn't know what to expect, so it became an excellent surprise. We took the 'local menu', it was good, our eyes and our taste were enjoying.

See my hotel review for more details. Suffice it to say that it was the best deal in town and a delightful experience. Ask for a table in the inner courtyard. Highly recommended.

Visited with partner and 15 year old son while on holiday on the recommendation of friends who live nearby for an evening meal. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. The dining room was beautifully set up and the service was faultless. We had one set menu which was just under 20 euros and the others ate a... More

We booked this restaurant based upon TA reviews and it did not disappoint. Choosing the gourmet menu we enjoyed a terrific dining experience with courses of the finest ingredients incredibly presented, the lamb was probably the pick. The wine menu is equally extensive and offers some real value in its selections. Service was excellent with discrete but attentive staff. We... More
