Great homemade butter, delicious fois gras with special sweet bread, the duck main course is a must to try! The service was also attentive and kind. We would highly recommend this place.

This restaurant Is located in the central section of Rouen near the marketplace and where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. It is full of history dating back to 1345. The stairs boast pictures of famous guests that have dined there. We mostly chose to order from the Harmonie Gourmande - Gourmet Harmony We started with the escargots,... More

This was a great restaurant, the food was cooked to perfection.it wasn't cheap but it does not suggest that it is. I would recommend that you plan to treat yourselves, we will definitely return.

We had a delicious 30th anniversary lunch at La Couronne today! Ordered from the monthly lunch special menu - curry cauliflower soup for both of us then I had cod and my husband had lamb. So good. And just to be excessive, and because we had heard it was lovely, we added on a dessert soufflé. Can't say enough nice... More

we stumbled across this one evening whilst searching for a restaurant to have dinner and what a find! The restaurant is much bigger than we thought as we were taken to the second floor. The ambiance of the whole place is one of rustic tranquility, a place that you can truly spend several leisurely hours over a meal. The walls... More

Good afternoon Fierce-Spicy-Chilli. Thank you so much for your kind review. i will certainly print it out to share with all. It is the first time that i read the expression "rustic tranquility" being used to describe la Couronne and i must say that you are spot on. Especially for dinner, when the sun comes down on our Market Square.... More

La Couronne, established in 1345, was witness to the burning of Joan of Arc in the square in front of the restaurant, but it may be most notable for being the first restaurant where Julia Child dined upon arriving in France. That meal was detailed in "My Life in France" and the owners of La Couronne have replicated the meal... More

We visited because we happened to be waiting for train to Paris and thought it would be good to share in some of the Julia Child nostalgia. Staff is quite friendly and correct. You can tell they are proud of their establishment. However, the food is frankly underwhelming. My son and I both had some sort of shredded lamb roll... More

This is a beautiful and charming restaurant. As an American, the history of the building is amazing. Makes you realize how "young" the US is. The Impressionist menu was a great value: we chose the oysters and fois gras for starters, shared the 2 person beef for our main, and dessert. All were delicious! We also shared a bottle of... More

This had been on my list from the moment we began planning our two week trip. I have a nostalgic attachment to anything Julia Child, and any place that has been around for several hundred years must be doing something right! It's a beautiful place in a very easy location, and we were greeted warmly and felt right at home... More
