A very nice experiende next to the river Charentes

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

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.

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

It was truly amazing flavour bomb. The potato gratin was to die for and the lamb next to it was tasty as well with great seasoning ;).

We took a 15-20 minute leisurely walk from the centre of Cognac, through the parks to the riverside location of La Courtine, where we enjoyed our Sunday lunch. We shared a starter of snails in garlic butter, followed by a main course of liver for me and faux filet for my partner. The food was good, but nothing special. Even... More
