Great atmosphere, good food and value

We have been trying to get into this place for years of coming to the old town of Altea and finally made it; so the first tip is that it is best to book. Really enjoyed our evening. The restaurant is very atmospheric with water, lights fantastic view of the Church and definitely quirky in keeping... read more

We have frequented Oustau's since 2003 when on holiday in Altea and have always found it to be fine dining. However this time there were key elements missing from what we were used too. Our food came at different times for each of our party of just four, especially our desert where one of our party waited about fifteen minutes... More

I was treated to a meal there from my best friends ....and once again it did not disappoint. A perfectly cooked steak with a strawberry sauce / duck fillet in a reaspberry sauce and my favourite fillet of turbot on a light shredded vegetable base with a puree potato and a champagne sauce, which pulled the whole dish together perfectly....

Had a nice dinner in this well located restaurant, just off the landmark church in the center of town. Very friendly staff and the Swiss owner also makes sure his guests are happy. Attractively priced dishes, creatively prepared, all tastefull with some unexpected combinations. There were quite some dishes of the day, so we had to pay good attention to... More

Firstly, the previous reviewer was absolutely right about the sour, gruff female hostess. We have been to this restaurant twice this month and I have already booked to go back for a special occasion in July. The first time we went I thought we were in for a rotten night because she has an unfortunately brusque manner. Luckily, everyone else... More

What is the rave about? My wife and I were "welcomed" by a downright sour female maitre d. The impression was somewhat lifted after the intervension of an extremely friendly gentleman. I spent the entire night in the loo with food poisoning after our visit! We had prawns in garlic butter and scallops for starters. They lack the competence to... More

Absolutely lovely. Service - fabulous, food awesome. Steaks cooked to perfection (strawberry sauce was an inspiration) beautiful lamb, gorgeous duck and puddings to die for. Seriously recommend this restaurant.

Oustau, is truly a great restaurant. I dined in one of the best restaurants in Cannes recently and Oustau has better service, better atmosphere, better choice, better quality and all this for a fraction of the price you might pay elsewhere. You should try to book as it is popular all year and on all nights. I would like to... More

The restaurant came highly recommended by out B and B hostess. Extreme disappointment!! Awful experience and sub-par food... I almost left at the very beginning when the waiter said I was "selfish." I was trying to speak Spanish (FYI - I am fairly fluent), but he rattled off the daily specials so quickly that I missed some of the descriptions.... More
