Concierge.com's insider take:
If you crave a big hunk of grilled protein, this is your restaurant, where seafood and steaks are cooked over maple charcoal. The excellent meat (the restaurant has its own butcher) is simply prepared, while fish dishes are a little more elaborate: salmon fillet on a corn cake with wilted spinach, poached tomatoes, and cilantro oil. Unlike many steakhouses, Le Charbon does not let you down at dessert. The options include a Mascarpone cheesecake or a delicious molten chocolate cake with orange confit. The restaurant is housed in the old Gare du Palais—the train station—and is a favorite with local businessmen and politicos.
Lunch Monday through Friday 11:30 am to 2:30 pm. Dinner Sunday through Wednesday 5 to 10:30 pm, Thursday through Saturday 5 to 11 pm.
