Went in early September for Sunday lunch and had 2 courses from the a la carte menu since neither of us felt we could manage one of the fixed price menus. The starters looked so tempting though. Wonderful fish dishes .My mother was shown her sole before it was cooked and it was then expertly served at the table, this... More

We visit Port Vendres 2 or 3 times a year and often choose La Cote Vermeille. We went with trepidation yesterday (24 Sept) after reading the recent poor reviews. I'm pleased to say that we had an excellent lunch on the Terrace with great service and no sign of any nasty waitresses. Normal service resumed as far as I'm concerned.

The visit to this restaurant was eagerly awaited as our local guests were eager to take us there, but it soon became a very disagreeable experience. The restaurant has a very nice ambience but that is soon chilled to the bone with the attitude and rudeness of the waiting staff, in particular what seemed to be the lead waitress. Although... More

I visited this restaurant on 16 July with my husband. The service was poor. Staff were disinterested. We asked for a wine recommendation to go with our order and the wine was probably the worst we had on an otherwise wonderful holiday in Port Vendres. My husband ordered from the set menu..... which we had to ask for! His food... More

We are unable to comment on the quality of the food as we did not stay long enough to find out. We were a celebratory party of four, booked for a friend's birthday, but found the reception frosty from the start. Even the taking of our coats seemed a chore. Our spirits were falling as we took our table. Not... More

Port-Vendres is a small village so unfortunately there is not a huge choice of restaurants so people tend to end up here by default. I've lived here for just over a year and wanted to go somewhere 'nice' for my birthday. Despite many warnings from other locals the thought of fresh seafood (it is a fishing port!) and the sunny...

Overlooking the harbour from a raised terrace this restaurant and the fish market (around the corner) are the two best places in town to eat. Very good value and delicious lunch made with great flair and local ingredients.

We had dinner here and shared a Dorade Royal between 3 as well as 2 other meals. The fish was excellent (30 Euros each) and very nicely served by attentive waiteresses. Very nice selection of wines and nice desserts. The menu choice is not extensive but is fair as they are not trying to be a lower end restaurant. Great... More

If you want really fresh fish overlooking a typical working French fishing port, then this place is for you. We had lobster salad so fresh and with large, succulent pieces of lobster; cabaillaud and more that melted in the mouth; and delicious desserts. Our first choice of rose was rather too dry, but was replaced without fuss or drama. This... More

Foolishly I chose the beef in a fish restaurant and I've had far better quality in UK. My partners fish was excellent. Quite pricey but well cooked, well presented and on the terrace a superb environment c Most definitely the best in the area.
