This is a busy riverside restaurant. We dropped in for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The menu was varied and not expensive. It was easy to park the car outside and we enjoyed walking into the town centre without having to move it again. However we were a little surprised to find only one toilet cubicle for women and...

I have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions but on my last visit about two years ago felt that the standards had slipped. Had it become a little complacent? Its position is perfect and is a wonderful place to eat and could easily draw custom for that reason. No longer. With three friends, each of us choosing different... More

It was a pleasant walk along the river to get here from the domains de chateau. We sat outside on the terrace and had a lovely meal. French cuisine. Good service and good value for money. Overlooking the river charant.

Great and quiet waterside location, large menu, good food, friendly staff - and an enormous selection of Cognacs for your after dinner coffee - why not try a Camus XO Borderies ? Not for drinking, but pure and loong enjoyment

Havng researched restaurents to visit in Cognac this one appealed the most but sadly did not live up to expectations. Food was nice but not outstanding. Staff seemed busy and rushed. Seemed to cater a lot for the local business professionals who got the attention and service rather than tourists. However the setting is stunning next to the river. We... More
