This review focuses on the restaurant, rather than the hotel. This is arguably the best restaurant in Cognac.
The setting is calm and airy - a former farm, close to the main bridge in Cognac; so the setting is a walled garden close to the centre of Cognac and the river Charente. The site is child friendly, being a walled garden.
For dining - it is the best that we have tried in Cognac. 2 Seoarate dining rooms as well as covered areas ouside for dining in good weather.
The cuisine is exceptional, without being pretentious and the service is courteous and professional. The menu has recently been overhauled (perhaps following a criticism from a previouis visitor) and what is on offer would seem to be an improvement with a wide choice of starters (5) and main courses (8: 4 fish/seafood and 4 meat) and a dessert trolley (and a cheese trolley). Eating a 3 course meal "a la carte" would be relatively expensive (at least 60€ excluding beverages).
Lunchtime there is a lunchtime menu of 2 courses for 25€ - a bit expensive compared with the town centre.
In addition there are 3 other menus (lunch and evening):
"Fantaise d'un Jour" - every day a different 3 course meal for 35€ (you may take an "a la carte" replacement dish of a particular course for a small charge) - try it and enjoy.
"Menu Gastronomique Debutante" (18€) - 2 courses - for children - with a wide choice from the menu.
The 3rd menu (47€) is a bargain if you are 4 people - 4 courses and you only pay for 3 people so = 37€ - a better bet to dawdle over this in the evening.
