Not a bad spot for lunch, and pretty good food in a busy and charming location, but ironically at precisely the same cost for 4 (€226 with a little wine) as at the Hotel des Trois Mas just up the hill which has a Michelin...More

We have visited this restaurant seven times over the last few years. It never disappoints. The location is fantastic, with incredible views across the bay to Collioure from the terrace, where it's normal to eat unless the weather is inclement. The staff are wonderful and...More

Food was great, though I wouldn't call it innovative. Extensive wine-list. Service was absolutely superb! We had the "Terre et mer" menu and all-in-all it was a great meal with fantastic views. But I must admit, even for a Norwegian foodie, 18 euros for a...More

A great restaurant. No need to repeat all of the accolades. The food and service were extraordinary, and the view of the beautiful harbor of Collioure is truly magical. I had the 72 Euro plan; my wife the 49 Euro. Well worth the price. Note...More

A special treat in Collioure. It is an easy walk from the centre and has a great position overlooking the bay. Staff were excellent, very friendly, and offered us an aperitif while we looked at the menu. We opted for the Cap Bear set menu....More

I asked about the dress code when we went and they said that casual was fine - ie dress jeans and a shirt for my partner was ok, no need for a suit. I didn't ask about shorts but yours sound quite smart and would probably... More
