“A Wonderful Discovery”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We found a sign for this lovely restaurant on the road and on a whim, turned and found one of the best meals of our French visit. We were seated on the patio above a lovely bubbling fountain. The menu is extremely varied and we had a hard time choosing. Each course was well presented and imaginative. Our server was a Frenchman who lived part time in Texas and provided us with lots of information regarding the food, including a wonderful story about the name of the John Dori fish. It was an idyllic afternoon, spent with attentive service, beautiful surroundings and divine food and wine.

“Excellent French cuisine.”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

Restaurant L’O des Sources in 26570 Montbrun les Bains is the new sister of restaurant L’Oustau de la Font in 26570 Le Village Reilhanette, with 3,5KM in between.
L’O des Sources is modest in its pricing, and offers a delicious very tasting menu, a good venue for lunch with ultimate friendly service. Highly recommended.
It deserves its own listing in Trip Advisor.

“What a find!”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

Found the Oustau by accident, just driving around one day over from Buis. Had lunch.....excellent. Had to go back to try it again....so...when it poured down a few days later...we left the tent in Buis and came back for more - more lunch and a stay over night. Really great place, top marks for everything - room 2, lunch, wine list, service with a smile throughout. Great friendly people make you feel at home and can't praise them enough. Long way from home .......will be back though. Try it, highly recommended by us. Keep up the good work!!!

“Good place”
Reviewed May 9, 2010

This restaurant has a nice view of the valley around--especially if you can get a spot out on the lovely patio. Set menus are a good choice. Food is on the creative side, but nothing crazy; well cooked, but not to perfection. Watch out, though, as every course is HUGE. By the time we got to dessert, we were completely stuffed; after eating an ENTIRE plate of tasty profiteroles (a meal in itself), I felt positively ill. Good wine selection, but it's no deal.
Best choice in the valley for a nice dinner.
