We invited our local hosts to a late meal and didn't wish to venture far or use a car. So about five minutes away, we found La Citadelle. It was a welcome find and we all had the ''à la carte'' menu as suggested by Sandrine, the owner, who was quite helpful. We were treated like kings and the real... More

It was a dark and bleak old Winter's night in Olonzac, so we set out for some nice food and a bit of cheer. The welcome at La Citadelle by Madame is always chatty and warm. There were a couple of other buzzing tables, despite it being a Thursday in February. At the very beginning were a couple of titillating... More

We had a plat du jour as lunch on a hot market day (Tuesday) served on the terrace just across the road and thankfully under the shade of some large plane trees. At 13.50 Euros which included a 1/4 pichet of wine this was really good value. The cooking is good quality country cooking by the Chef/Patron with a Paella... More

We were driving from Salleles Cabardes to Lourmarin when we realized it was almost too late for lunch so we pulled into Olonzac which I vaguely remember reading was a quaint town. Well, in early May it is down-right sleepy. We passed two or three spots which looked uninviting and then asked a local for a suggestion: she pointed down... More

A really nice local restaurant - the food is beautifully prepared and served. The menu de jour was excellent value, the a la carte had some great choices, the selected entrecote steak was perfectly cooked. The desserts were gorgeous. The restaurant is light and airy and in the summer dining outside in the square away from the main street is... More

I visited La Citadelle back in July and intended to do a review for some time - having just read some of the less complimentary responses on here I felt compelled to do so! We had a really lovely experience here - a lovely courtyard setting and the restaurant being expertly run by a French couple, obviously passionate about food.... More

Nice resto with very friendly owners. Food is ok, not great, but good. My son and I had pizza which was ok. Husband had duck with a mushroom sauce, roasted potato and provencial tomato. Nice presentation but just ok in quality. Pizza can be taken "to go" as well which we did another night when returning from a day of... More

I walked pass the restaurant after the Tuesday market and first impression stuck it looked local and charming so we went back for lunch. So I think the previous reveiws are very unfair! We had a table in the square and had two salads and duck confit. It was all good not gourmet and it was well priced. The mozzarella... More

Service very slow and disorganised. Lost our order, waited well over an hour before they told us. No apology. Food not great either.
