This restaurant across from the spot where Jeanne D'Arc was burned at the stake continues to reign in setting magnificence. Gone are the days of Michelin Stars but the quality, presentation and service remain very pleasant indeed. This is wonderful for lunch with Fresh Dover Sole and a crisp Sancerre, but a romantic wonderland no doubt at night. Fair priced!

We loved the historical features, notoriety and décor as much as the food choices. Service was surprisingly good. The staff was very polite and helpful. Our language was somewhat of an obstacle, but we managed. Of course we spent a great deal of money, but enjoyed ourselves and the French cuisine while we were dining. By the way, the cheese... More

We had the gourmet meal and the wine. The atmosphere was great, the service impecable and the food brilliant. Everything was at should be in an establishment such as this. One of the best meals we had on our latest trips to France.

This dining event was truly one of the highlights of our River Cruise! Our 3 hour plus, experience started with a warm welcome upon arrival. Drink orders were taken and arrived with a "bonus" appetizer that we enjoyed while we studied the menu! Being a Chef, I like to really READ the menu without being rushed. We ended up choosing...

Good Afternoon Jane P, What can i say? i am left speechless by your comments.

The "La Couronne", this restaurant is not of a superior or top quality as they claim they are, the bill for two was over 200 Euros which we were more then happy to pay for a quality meal in a quality restaurant in France.

Dreadful. A great building with a wonderful atmosphere is let down by very slow service, tasteless food and an erroneious bill. Having failed to deliver the te and coffee despite waiting nearly an hour, they still included them on the bill and added an additional meal which wasn't ours. 3 hours for a disappointing meal is way too long. check...
