The past reputation and history of this place is eas to see from the many pictures of famous people who have eastern there. The location in the old market square makes this an expensive but must visit venue if you have the time and cash whilst in beautiful Rouen, the resturant is visually stunning and dates back to the 1300s...

My partner and I ate at La Couronne and thought it was very good. I had escargot and lamb and she had beef with potatoes. We both had soufflés for dessert. We sat downstairs and our waiter was friendly and helpful. I speak enough French to ask some questions and order from the menu. I think the effort to speak... More

The personel was very helpfull and friendly although they had a few tables to take care off. The food was really fantastic, I am still thinking about it. If you have the change please... More

La Couronne is an institution. Period. However, the food doesn't taste like it is merely tossed off for the tourists. It feels quite authentic, and the service is excellent. Yes, there are the framed portraits of famous diners throughout the place, but that just upped the kitch-factor for me. I'm not sure what the griping is about in regards to... More

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 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.

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
