“Warm restaurant - Excellent meal”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

We went to lunch at L'Oustaloun today. The restaurant was comfortably full when we arrived at 1:00. They offer à la carte as well as prix fix menus. I chose the 29 euros menu and ate a fresh goat cheese salad and for the main dish, pork tenderloins. The small deserts on the café gourmand menu were excellent. We will definitely go back.

“Good food...BAD service :(”
Reviewed 4 August 2012

The food was nice (but not nicer than anywhere else in the area) but the service was a disaster ! We had to wait over half an hour between our main course and ordering the desserts and coffees and another 20 minutes to get the bill despite the fact that we ask for it as the same time as the coffees. The worse part is that everytime we tried to get the waiters attention they were deliberatly ignoring us !!! We were almost ready to get up and leave !!! So maybe try the other nice restaurants around before going to this one.

“Wonderful dinner in a charming atmosphere”
Reviewed 1 June 2012

We spent the night at the hotel L'oustaloun and reserved a table for dinner as the dining room looked cozy and had a nice atmosphere. We had a wonderful meal and great service. We loved the Foie Gras Creme Brulee, the sardine appetizer and my lamb was wonderful. The service was lovely and the wine list reasonable.

“worth a detour :-(”
Reviewed 26 July 2011

other than the lovely location in the main square of maussane, there were only two things of merit
the lamb (locally reared) was tender and tasty
the bottle of luberon red (€ 28.00) was softly rounded and well worth the money

those two things apart, none of us would go near the place again.

the politest that could be said of the foie gras creme brulee with pain d'epice topping is that it was interesting! - aka pretty nasty

there was also a chocolate mousse-y thing for pudding which was truly disgusting, being more like a grainy solid blancmange made from cocoa powder

as for service - it was effectively non-existent.
the young girl who was meant to look after our table was clearly totally inexperienced and clueless, yet she received no management support at all

now you know why it's nearly always possible to get a table at l'oustaloun without booking!!
