Bistrot la Coulemelle

Here is the delicious “bistro annex” of Régis and Jacques Marcon’s great restaurant. Nothing to say, everything is generous and devilishly good. And the open kitchens add a warm side to the whole.
It was in this place, in 1978, that we took over the family business with my wife Michèle, an adventure with our entire family, our 4 children.
It is here that in 2005, we obtained our 3rd Michelin star for the Restaurant Jacques et Régis Marcon. Since then, the gourmet restaurant has been transferred, not far from there, 400 meters up the hill.
This place is dear to our heart, it is full of the history of the Marcon house. We naturally decided to continue our adventure. With the desire to breathe new life into this place and to perpetuate the tradition in a different way... From there was born “La Coulemelle”, the bistro formula of the Marcon houses.

La Coulemelle wants to be a relaxed place, where the Marcon family wants to be as close as possible to its customers.
We are happy to welcome you in a warm setting, where the kitchen is open to the room where we offer you a tasty and attractive bistro formula for a gourmet stopover.
You will live at La Coulemelle, a unique moment around local products, an experience to repeat as you wish during your visits to Saint-Bonnet-Le-Froid.
The hallmark of our houses is to work our dishes in harmony with the season while highlighting the beautiful products that abound in our region.
In the dining room, our team will be there to help you discover our best suggestions and ensure you have a pleasant time.
