El Paseo: Sadly it is gone now .... French Tex Mex
Update 2013 - We passed through Sisteron on our way back from Aiguines and sadly this restaurant is gone now ... too bad. The town also looked a bit sad. We ate in an unremarkable restaurant and left .... the Citadelle is still beautiful though.
As we live in France full time, we are always on the lookout for good versions of certain foods that we miss, and Mexican is one of them. So we were happy to find this cute place right on the main street of Sisteron.
The French owners spent a bit of time in the American southwest, and have done a good job at reproducing the food and drinks of the region.
It's also fun to look at the menus, which they have decorated with travel photos from their journeys out west in the US. They also decorated the interior and exterior with colorful Mexican blankets, cowboy boots, sombreros and other fun south-western themed decor - making it hard to miss.
Favorite Dish: Good margaritas ;-)
Hôtel-Restaurant de la Citadelle: Beautiful views of the valley from the terrace
We had petit dejeuner here (coffee, croissants, jam and juice) and didn't eat a main meal. The food isn't renowned or anything but the terrace here has amazing views of the valley and is beautiful to sit down in.
This is also a hotel and the restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinners.
