After so many years, we still make our way back to La Citadelle where we know we will have ambiance..... a good meal (always!) ....at a good price.....and delicious wine whether by bottle or pichet. It doesn't matter whther you are a ouple or a group of friends.
There is a great team here making it a dining experience not to be forgotten! A big thank-you to all.....see you in October!
We visited June, July and August.

Booked for a Friday night - the final night of our week in France. Good job we did as it filled up fast and they were turning away lots of potential customers. Had a lovely table downstairs and the atmosphere was fantastic. Prompt but discreet service, the best confit duck we'd had in that area of France by a street. Food was so good we all had 3 courses. Fabulous!

Booked here on a Saturday night and glad we did, another small group tried to get in just as we turned up but were turned away. Waiter said they were busy most Thurs/Fri/Sat and full that night. We were led to a table upstairs with around 20 covers (groundfloor has about same).

Staff very friendly and spoke some English. Menus on the wall consisted of manly salad entrees and meat main courses. We had pig's trotter and baked avocado starters then braised lamb shank and duck. Wine available by the glass, pichet or bottle.

Good, hot food in good portions and not expensive....our bill came to under 60 euros including 50cl wine and coffees.

Easily the best restaurant we've tried in the area. You can find their website if you try hard enough.

(Tip we went at 7.30pm but were alone until 8.30pm when other parties started turning up - be prepared)

We have been visiting the CItadel regularly for the past 5 years. The food is superb. The ambience is lovely and the wait staff charming. We only converse in French and the staff usually speak French back. I would strongly recommend this restuarant to anyone travelling near by. Worth the visit.
