We booked based upon Tripadvisor and, yes, from the exterior it would not automatically suggest something special, but it was! We had reserved an outside table and glad we had as all the others were full when we arrived. We had a tuna tartare, suburb, and an exceptional marinaded anchovies with roasted pepper. This followed by a plate of huge... More

Went early one Monday evening (7 o'clock). Waitress appeared bored, tired and disinterested. Wife's salmon was just dull and my scallop risotto stodgy and over creamy. Puddings were somewhat better (pannacotta /Paris breast). Unfortunate conclusion later that evening was that I was very ill (I will spare the details). This ruined the rest of our short stay in collioure. I... More

Our third night in Collioure, and by a country mile the best meal we've had so far. I had duck and my wife had the beef priced at €20, both were delicious and the presentation and accompaniments were delightful. We have a few more restaurants to sample before the end of our stay, but on the basis of our meal... More

The best evening meal we had all week while staying in Collioure. Wonderful food, beautifully presented, with excellent service. We opted for a pitcher of the house red at 8 euros for 50cl, and it was one of the best we had all week. Would definitely recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three course dinner at Le Vauban. Each course was beautifully plated. Food was very flavourful and thoughtfully put together. Service was attentive in an intimate atmosphere. Best panacotta ever!

It's not often my husband starts giggling after his first mouthful of dessert! This unassuming, contemporary looking restaurant in the medieval back streets delivered great service and immense food for a reasonable price. The set menu was amazing! Look forward to returning soon.

A new season in Collioure and another great experience at Le Vauban! This little restaurant is definitly worth 5 stars. The food, the presentation and the service are all first class. You will find Le Vauban in one of the small streets just behind the sea front, Rue Vauban. Highly recommended! Just enjoy!

One of the best meals we had during our 5 week trip to France. We ate here with our two boys (6 and 10) and everyone loved their food. I had the prawns with risotto and my husband had the steak with mushroom sauce and it was spectacular! The service was good and friendly. I would highly recommend this place.... More

We stay in Collioure for several weeks every year, but only this summer we tried Le Vauban. What a pleasant surprise! This small restaurant offers the most delicious food. We had the "tartare de thon, les gambas et le maigret de canard", all simply superb.This is a place you will feel welcome and enjoy an excellent service throughout your meal.... More
