“Good location but the rest is bad”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

There are so many good places to eat in St. Tropez so stay away from this place. Service is really bad, the food was simple and cold (had to send it out again and they put it in the micro owen). The waitress almost got angry when we asked for some mustard to the french fries and so on. The turkey was dry and came only with french fries, not a tomato or anything.

Stopped by in a hurry as the one we were supposed to go to closed lunch earlier than expected.

“Average, average, average”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Restaurant La Citadelle occupies a corner position on the street leading down from St. Tropez's fortress. It's a great position to attract people, but the restaurant doesn't quite live up to its promise. Salads were disappointing - small and tasteless. I wasn't quite sure that the Caesar sauce was anything that would be recognized by other chefs who prepare Caesar salads. The mixed grill that arrived featured undercooked chicken and gristle-filled steak, not to mention the cold frites, surely a speciality of the house! The highlight of the meal were the coffees, which were at least hot when served. I'm sure that this restaurant has better days when the salads are tasteful and the chicken doesn't threaten salmonella, but it wasn't on the day that we visited. Such is life!

“a nightmare !!!”
Reviewed August 22, 2011

the worst culinary experience in the whole area. in most of france's factory canteens you get more refined food; at least better warmed over after having been pulled out of the freezer (half frozen olive pie). but what makes this place really a black spot in lovely st. tropez is the arrogant service, that does not take interest in clients complaints but simply serves you the bill. Better avoid this!

“Good location shame about the food”
Reviewed August 28, 2010

Like many restaurants in St Tropez, La Citadelle looks very inviting from the outside with it's extensive terrace and light food menu. The setting is indeed very nice, but the food unfortunately fails to live up to the setting. Despite being 100m from the port, the fish dishes were all poorly executed: dry, overcooked fish does not make for pleasant eating. The meat dishes are a little better, but hardly inspirational french cuisine. Oh and they only take cash so remember to bring some along or you'll have to take a trip down to the cash machine. Overal, a nice setting spoiled by very average food.
