We had a delightful dinner here thanks to your man Ben. He was great and spoke perfect English. He recommended wine and dinner selections. We really enjoyed ourselves and can not say enough about the food and staff. Thank you for making our 30th anniversary memorable. Thanks to you too Ben!

Sadly we haven't been to La Courtine for a year or two and so it was time to test it out again. Again the food didn't disappoint. We had a great value set meal for 29 euros each. Starter, main, dessert, wine, coffee. Ok the wine was average local wine but it was easily drinkable. The starters were both good.... More

We were visiting Cognac on our bikes from Ars. The restaurant was not busy, six dinners. We requested drinks only, thinking we would come back for lunch if we liked the place. The waiter told us we would have too sit inside, his whole attitude was 'not bothered'. The setting is lovely just a shame the staff don't match the... More

Dear Sir, Thank you for your report. For your information, La Courtine is a restaurant and not a bar. The restaurant was booked solid and the tables were all set up to welcome our clients. We offered you to have a drink inside but very close to the terrace but this did not suit you. We are sorry for it.... More

Found it be accident. A well presented meal, beautifully cooked. Eating en-terrace to the tranquil sound of moving water is always a bonus.

6 of us had lunch at La Courtine one Sunday. We booked by email via their website and the response was fast. I was concerned that it'd be a tourist trap but it wasn't; the food & wine were excellent quality and reasonably priced. Highly recommended. It was quite busy so I suggest you book if interested.

Ate there with a couple of friends. The relationship between quality of food and price is low. One of the waiters handed the plate to my friend to set it on the table, another refused to move us to another table when we asked because our neighbors were smoking, under the argument that they were fully booked, which turned out...

Ate here with friends on a Sunday. The place was packed, so make sure you reserve. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. Very reasonably priced too. 5 star! Sadly the restaurant is let down by the slow and less than warm service. Just a bit mechanical. I know it was a busy day, but if you can't cope then... More

Fabulous setting on the River Charente. Extensive menu. Fairly slow service and rather tired unfriendly waiters. Book ahead for the terrace.

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...
