We found the ambiance and food here was great though the service might not be as great, probably because we were Asians. In general, cultural barriers can be melted by just a little chat / smile. It was a bit tricky to find L'Oustalet though it is actually in a convenient location, a wide opened area. There is only a... More

We had such a wonderful experience at the L'Oustalet, sitting at the patio enjoying the gentle breeze while enjoying the excellent service and food the restaurant offered. They patiently explained the menu items in English. I was recommended a wine to go with the chicken and it truly went so well with the ambience and dish that I have been... More

Yes, some of the ratings below state they are full of themselfes - but why shouldn't they. This is simply a perfect place. A sommelier (Hugo) who know his job a chef that enjoys what he is doing, a wine list you will hardly find elsewhere (and I have seen many) and the most stunning terrace in front of the... More

You know when you have that really good restaurant and they know (and act) like they're better than you and everyone else. Bingo. Foods was great and the sommelier was the nice one. The Maitre d'Hotel could use a few lessons in civility - but, when you are full every night - pourquoi pas?

This restaurant is owned by the Perrin family who is the co-owner of a winery in our hometown and our reservations were made through that winery. What a gourmet treat. We went with our wine tour driver who was also known by the maitre d'. I don't know if all the extras from wine to special food was because of... More

We have eaten here on three or four occasions but always for lunch, outside in the courtyard. This was our first visit in the evening and dining inside the restaurant. We both felt there was little difference if any, as the menu choice, quality and taste of food and service was of an equal gastronomic experience, however sitting outside did... More

This was my first visit for dinner and we were definitely not disappointed. The food flavours were clean, fresh and truly delicious. Despite such a high standard it is not too expensive. We paid approx 60 euros each for 3 courses and wine and it was worth every penny. The staff were very professional but also very friendly, tolerating our... More

Had lunch today at this excellent Michelin starred restaurant which we have been visiting now for several years each time we have been in the area. Lunch on the terrasse is a sublime experience and its Michelin rating is well deserved. I did have a little trouble with the reservation as I had had to leave a voice-mail message which... More
