“A perfect evening”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

From the moment we arrived (half an hour early because we got the time wrong), Yolande was a warm and gracious host to our party of six (Canadian, French and Australian). We started with a cocktail made from a sugared violet, and moved on to significant portions of cream of asparagus soup, wild salmon with spring vegetables, and the main of perfectly cooked duck. This was complemented by a wonderful selection of paté, cheese, dessert, and delicious wines from the region. The price per head was well under €50, exceptional value. Well worth the drive from anywhere in the region. I will return!

“A Unique experience”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

It was 2 days before Christmas ... We had phoned Yolande to book dinner, thinking that she probably would say NO... well, she said YES even though we were the only guests ( 2 adults and a dog) ! Yolande is a one-woman show in the Oustal de Citou: the Christmas decorations were out of the ordinary, but created a magic atmosphere : the dimmed lighting, the big open fire, the yesteryear furniture, the beautifully lais table ... all fantastic, but nothing compared to the delightful meal that she cooked using only local produce and brought to the table with such pleasure, the choice of wine etc.. we felt so spoilt and we hope to return there for more.
Citou is well known for its sweet oignons " les onions doux de Citou" its fruits (surrounded by cherry/apricot and apple orchards) and ... the locals know where to find a good truffle!
Warmly recommended!
