La Couronne is supposedly the classic restaurant for French traditional food in Rouen, the reason for us visiting. The food is pricey as expected from the high recommendations. All menus lean on nouvelle cuisine with nice-to-look-at plates and little to eat, not a single offering of traditional cuisine. Somehow their recipes err on the (extremely) sweet side, including the foie... More

I went to this restaurant as part of a large group on a concert tour of Normandy so that may have been part of the problem. We were offered red or white wine. Those choosing red put water in their small wine glass. The waiter had the nerve to tell them that the water was for the larger glass and... More

We really had not a clue where to eat for one night in Rouen, and happened on this place more by accident than good luck. Brilliant photos of famous people over the last 80 years must a bugger to insure there was a signed photo of Jean Paul Satre for goodness sake. We sat upstairs on the 3 rd level... More

The service at this restaurant was great (Sunday lunch), but my main wasn't hot when it was served to me and the meal as a whole was very expensive.

Our family visited on July 5, 2014. There were seventeen of us, at three separate tables. Almost all of us ordered from the 35 Euro formule. What we experienced ranged from the waiter bringing food nobody had ordered (entrees to the two people who had just ordered main courses, the wrong desserts for those of us who had ordered formules),...

My wife and I visited in June 2014 for the 5th time, this time with 2 friends from Sweden. We opted for the 35 euro 4 course dinner and added a half bottle of wine each for an extra 14 Euros. As always, the entire meals were superb with excellent choices for each course. La Couronne is the oldest auberge... More

We been recommended this place by a friend. This restaurant has a history since 1345. So being in Rouen we had to experience it. We came early for dinner, so we had a wonderful service, since there was only us and another table. We started from a bottle of white wine. My friend had oysters which he said was of... More

We had some of the best fish dishes ever at La Couronne. The entertainment of the evening was watching them prepare pressed duck. Meal was not inexpensive but worth the price.
