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

I've just looked back at a review of this restaurant that I posted in 2010. At that time I said the food was good but the service was awful.
