Excellent food (in my opinion Michelin star quality) but not open sunday night or monday . Don't have the taster menu unless you have a large appetite and are very hungry.

A really enjoyable dining experience for those of you that like a stylishly presented and freshly cooked individual meal. We dined outside in the courtyard in this popular Logis hotel and restaurant, My wife went for the local eel as a French friend had said it was a local dish. They could not have been friendlier and both meals were... More

We had parked a distance away from the city centre and had walked in during the middle of a very hot day. Got a great coffee here and a large glass of (free) iced water. A lifesaver!

We enjoyed a relaxed meal here trying two different menus and à la cart and all of us were delighted. Excellent service and a great welcome.

Booked our table late morning for our group of 11, which we were very glad we did, as by 13.00 there was no way that they could have seated us. Good choice of A la Carte and lunchtime set menu, which also had a choice. Very attentive staff although the water could have come quicker. Huge surprise with the offer... More

Excellent lunch. I can understand why Le Central is considered the best in Coulon. Very nice dining room (it was too cold and showery to stay outside in the garden). We chose the simplified lunch formula and it was just perfect. Nice, though a little hesitant, service by young waitress. The restaurant is part of the Logis chain and in... More

This was a belated birthday meal as had been travelling on the day. Mrs W had a crab tart to start, followed by lamb, and a chocolate cube. I had hot oysters, followed by loin of veal and sweetbreads, and a chocolate finger. The descriptions here do not do the plates justice. It was all excellent, beautifully presented and a... More

My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. There is no menu translated to English and only one of four wait staff who knew English. We muddled through and took some chances. Our favorite entree was Grosse ravioli an open ravioli topped with garlicky mushrooms. My husband had a lamb plat and I had the fish: filet de... More

Coulon is very busy in July & August, all restaurants have many customers. The Central is a more up market eatery, reflected in the prices, however the food is excellent and worth the cost. We had booked in advance, which was as well as the terrace was full very quickly. Waiting staff very attentive and apperetifs appeared promptly with mis... More

I visited 'Le Central' with my family and the family of my fiancee. We were surprised at just how good the food and service was, even more so at the excellent price. We took the 'menu découverte'. I took the white bean foie gras gazpacho entree, the pintade main and the angelique financier dessert. All were excellent and the hors... More
