Like other reviewers we were directed to Le Coin by our hotel. When we told them of our disappointing experience they were surprised and said 'it must have changed'. Well, it needs to change again!
We were a party of four and pre-booked. We were seated opposite a serving hatch that led to what appeared to be a kitchen. Le Patron was freindly and took our order - that was the last time he visited our table. I shall not dwell on on the food other than to say we had to send back three of the four main courses because they were cold. The dishes were then heated up in a microwave and returned. Opposite us, beneath the serving hatch was a round open topped kitchen bin into which were scraped the left-overs from plates before they were passed through the hatch to the kitchen -hopefully for washing up. Oh, and the House wine, the cheapest, was Euro 28 a bottle and not nice at all.
Avoid until such time as the restaurant changes for the better - much better

Our hotel had suggested eating at Le Coin, so we decided to give it a try. They were glad to seat us. The restaurant looked like a corner diner with the kitchen and washing station in the same area. We both order an entree, main and shared a dessert. The starters were average fare. The mains were under seasoned. The rice pudding was served with burnt caramel. We requested to have it changed, but they were already starting to seat the incoming group at our table. This really ruin our experience. It seems like they treat the locals better - I hope!

We had a beautiful meal and the lady of the house took great pains to translate the full menu to English for us. The food was excellent and the evening was a lovely experience of France.

Walked into Le Coin one evening and was completely surprised!

The food was excellent! Started with the Filets de hareng,
Pommes Tiedes. Ordered the Boeuf Bourguignon as the main course and finished with a Crème brûlée. Everything was unbelievably good.

The owner spoke English. She translated and explained the entire menu to me. Great service!
