We were blown away by the exacting standards of a fine French restaurant, but to be honest, the chicken entree was a big disappointment. For the prices they charged, we would have expected `melt-in-your-mouth`tenderness

We enjoyed our dinner here and the quality of the food was excellent. The wine was a little on the pricy side and our meal complete with a half bottle of both red and white came out at a little over €100. Parking is tricky nearby as it is situated in a very small street in the old town. The... More

Rather standard menu choices -- well prepared but lacking noteworthy flavours. The main fish dishes were slightly overcooked, terrine de foie gras was quite tasty, the chocolate soup desert was nice but the sables were a bit boring. Unimpressive wine list. The least positive was the service which was abrupt and rushed -- one felt the stress of both the... More

Nevers is not particularly a tourist destination; the dominance of French language reviews for Jean-Michel Couron is testament to that. It's the special occasion restaurant in town and the locals seem to keep them busy. Inside the restaurant is divided into several rooms with the vaulted ceiling of the back room having most character. Service is friendly if a touch... More

We concluded a week long barge trip on the Canal du Nevernaise with a celebratory meal at Jean-Michel Couron. Dining with friends who had hosted us on their barge we all agreed that the Michelin star is well deserved and that this was a fantastic dining experience on a number of levels. Impeccable service, ambiance (the back room in the... More

Not only was this restaurant a welcome find after a long drive from Paris, but it was a grand surprise! Tucked into a small street in Nevers, this restaurant offered absolutely exceptional presentation, service and cuisine. The chef deserves much applaud for his creative yet very cozy cooking. Bravo! And the waiter gave a superb wine recommendation. The only complaint,... More

Probably the best restaurant in Nevers. The restaurant has 1 Michelin star and rightfully deserves it. The amuse bouche, the scallops starter, the charolais beef main course, the cheese plate, the pear dessert and the petit four were all tasty. The 4-course menu only costed 48 euros, a huge bargain when compared with the prices in Paris. Service was friendly... More
