Castelas Goat Cheese Restaurant

Hello,

just looking for contact information ... a website maybe?... for the Goat cheese restaurant near Sivergues.

I've heard it's great and would like to go there for lunch when we're there in a few weeks.

Anyone been recently?

Thanks,
Jen

That is really saying something cigalechanta! As a seasoned Provence traveller "one of your best experiences" is bound to be great.

Do you think we need reservations or could we just go by one day for lunch?

I've seen their website too, I just can't seem to find it!

Yes, call for reservations. gianni is from Sardinia and came to France with an Italian musical group. there he met his now wife who was one of the organizers. The setting of the place is incredible, the goats try to jump on the tables. It's a sight to see gianni leading his son's troop of pigs. He serves sangria with the meal.

This is something KayDee I believe wrote about the restaurant. Doesn't her story just make your mouth water?

I can't wait to visit. I've found a few different phone numbers though so I'm trying to find the right one.

Ahh- so sorry; just saw this:
Note: Le Castelas is open during the warmer months only (possibly April through September?) for lunch and dinner. Lunch costs 19 euro (wine is 20 euro a bottle). Dinner seems a more economical option at 30 euro a person, and includes entrées, roasted meat (lamb, pork or goat) and side dishes, dessert, and house wine, as well as the items included at lunch.
