Description: L’Oustalet is a ‘house’ that stems from a shared passion between Famille Perrin, a family of winemakers and Laurent Deconinck, a Chef. Located next to the restaurant in Gigondas. It is a mix of contemporary and authentic style at the heart of our Mediterranean culture. The ‘produce’ inspires our cuisine; we are in permanent search of the finest food and wine matches. Whether we greet our guests at the cellars, in our vegetable garden or among our truffle trees we enjoy sharing our passion. Our rooms will offer you an exceptional experience in Provence! You are in Gigondas!

Richard, our host at Chateau de Beaucastel subtly suggested we might enjoy the Perrin families restaurant --they own the Chateau--the restaurant is in a small village called Gigondas, about 5 minutes from the Chateau, its a terrific little village with art galleries and other shops in it and no cars-- a "petite" village tho, to be sure--well... it turned out to be as good as any we ate in southern France-- including the ones with Michelin stars-- service was exemplary, staff spoke excellent English and was most helpful, didn't push anything! Food was truly amazing. The presentation was memorable, but the taste--WOW! and all without the price attached to anything that has earned one or more stars, its not cheap, but it was an amazing lunch--

Impeccably prepared imaginative dishes. Polite and efficient service. Plan time to walk around Gigondas and visite the nearby Dentelles de Montmirail for a perfect day in Provence !

Our group of 4 people ( 2 couples) visited Chateau de Beaucastel for winetasting and we were recommended to go for lunch at L'Oustalet. It was our 4th visit to this small restaurant and we had- again- a very good and delicious experience! The kitchen surprises us every time without overdoing things. The food is excellent, as are the wines and the wine-food combinations. To me this is a special place because there is something in the air, it is about devotion to their job without being pretentious. We were in truffleseason and ordered a.o. the ravioli with truffle, sounds simple and heavy, but the ravioli had a very delicate taste. There was another memorable dish with veal and truffle with a nice glass of Gigondas.
We had no dessert but coffee and friandises ( all very delicious and of course home made). If you go to Gigondas-which is a very lovely village where you can taste the Gigandas wines at the Caveau de Gigondas only a few metres away- have lunch at L'Oustalet if you really like to taste!

L'Oustalet has impeccable service, perfectly executed food, and an enviable wine list. This dinner was easily the most memorable during me week long trip to southern Rhone. I would have returned every night if I could! Dine here if you want to experience the best of the best. Hoping I get to return one day.

If you find yourself within a few hours of Gigondas, go out of your way to enjoy a lunch or dinner here! Everything about it is top notch. We've enjoyed many, many restaurants in France - this is one of a handful that are truly worth going out of your way to enjoy.
