We had a dinner at La Ribaudere during a business trip to Roullet Cognac. We had been served by a set-menu (peas soup with salmon, sturgeon with caviar, crab ravioli and lobster bisque, veal cheeks, light desert) and it was just amazing! Delicious, proper portions,...More

1st Class restaurant. Lovely setting. In restaurant everything is white without the feeling that it's sterile. Attentif staff. Food was a joy, but my expectations were higher, having eaten in other Star restaurants. I noticed in 2 years time the same menu was still on...More

This was one of the best meals I have ever had in France. The setting on the Charente River, the view to the chateau, the menu comprising delicious dishes made using the freshest ingredients, reasonably-priced winelist, knowledgeable and charming staff (speaking English if required) and...More
