Ideal for a lunch time snack.Menu was varied and of a high standard Three of us had salads which were of high quality and very filling. One of us had the 'plat du jour' which was a well cooked steak with sautéed potatoes and salad. Service was very efficient and very courteous. It was good value and was served with... More

After almost a month in Italy and France, this was our first really disappointing dinner. Looking at previous reviews, mostly many months ago, I wonder if there has been a change of chef? Our group started with a variety of salads and the charcuterie platter. All as simple and basic as you could find anywhere. Mains of fish on a... More

Its easy to find in one of the two main shopping streets - market end of cognac - next door to the big Church. With a single working chef and wife doing the waiting... More

We visited without a reervation on a cool dull day. Luckily we were able to get a table downstairs as my husband was not well and would have had trouble climbing the stairs. We took advantage of the menu of the day which was a delicious roast chicken served on caramelised mixed vesgetables and a dessert of chocolate cake. Service... More

It can be hard finding a place to eat in Cognac centre, as standards seem to vary between snacky touristy, and pricey perfection. Chez Aristide offered good quality freshly prepared and interesting food. The drawback..it's a husband and wife team, so you might have to wait. But how can it be otherwise at the price? More staff means more overheads... More

If you are within 100 miles of Cognac, you should take some time to visit this charming Town. We explored the old town which is very pedestrian friendly. We worked up an appetite and ducked into a small restaurant run by a wonderful couple. What attracted us to the restaurant were all the locals who were sitting there eating. We... More

Loved our lunch at Chez Aristide today. We ate outside in glorious sunshine but there were lots of French people eating inside too, which always bodes well when you're in a new place and undecided about where to eat. Food was yummy and ALL home cooked in a tiny kitchen. The two lovely people running this restaurant worked like trojans... More

Sweet homemade meal always fresh and filling. With friendly service. The decor is cute and they have a nice little terraces at the front of the restaurant on one of the main streets, always on the sunny side.

Its marked 'restauration rapide' but no such luck. Very, very slow service. We asked twice for the menu, before we got it. Food ok.
