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 old cloister is amazing), a well executed menu and stellar wine list all contributed to a memorable evening. As each course arrived the artful presentation was thrilling; each diners plate was worthy of a high end foodie magazine photo. Each bite was a moment to savor and possibly suspect (or worry) that one might never have something this good again. Words cannot begin to do this experience justice.

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, it wasn't appropriate to lick our plates.

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 and efficient. The chef even came out to greet every client.

Highly recommended.
