What a pity the maitre d' looked down his nose. Sommelier friendly and knowledgeable but the experience spoiled (& the food was great) by a rather snobbish service

This restaurant offers a very unusual menu as they offer only 2 Entrées, 2 Main Plats (one fish and on meat), and 3 Desserts. They do claim that they change the choices very frequently. If you like a wide choice this is not the place for you. The service was attentive but was slow even by European standards when we... More

Had dinner here on a recent trip to Gigondas, the service was perfect, the atmosphere comfortable but elegant, the food amazing. Surprised with each course. Only place in France we found that could make my wife an espresso martini. The price is good for a Michelin starred place. We stayed at their B&B, also highly recommended.

The location and ambience were superb. The waiters and sommelier friendly and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the food was a huge disappointment. We love plain food, and we love pretentious food if perfectly done. This was hugely pretentious with very expensive ingredients wasted. What a pity.

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?
