I visited "Chez Simone" in February 2014, and said I would return...and I just did! So pleasant to enjoy a good lunch from the terrace overlooking the lovely Collioure old church. I ordered the exact same thing than last year, a dorade served with a veggie ratatouille. As good as I remembered it! Fresh fish, nicely cooked and served by... More

If you want to eat at a nice restaurant rather than going to a tourist trap , and without spending a fortune, this is your place . They have a tapas menu , but also simple dishes (sandwiches , burgers, and some meat or fish ) , so there is a wide selection possible. At price level, it is really... More

To say the truth, I really like Collioure and the overall atmosphere of the cafes/restaurants overlooking to the Plage du Boramar especially. It's such a lovely and enjoyable time there, if spent under the warm sun, sitting on a table with a beer or a cup of cafe without hurry.. Chez Simone is, for sure, one of the very main... More

A very nice surprise, small restaurant, look like a café. But the Tapas were just the best, better than most of the one you find in Spain :-) The service was very friendly, The quality of the food very good with local food and local wine. The food is also not local but made in an original way, what just... More

Both had one of the set menus and a picket of vin blanc. The wine was drinkable but no great discovery. The place benefits from the great sea view of Collioure. The server was keen and helpful. The food was OK. The starter was two types of anchovy with a small amount of grilled peppers. No great imagination there. I... More

Unassuming to look at, but well worth taking a table and selecting from the delicious range of tapas. The friendly staff are happy to answer any questions that you may have. The service is prompt, and the food, after only a short wait, is wonderful. The boquerones are succulent, the chorizo is fresh and tasty, and the squid is a... More

This little tapas place is tucked along a beautiful alley on one side and opens out with a stunning view of of the beach on the other side. Both great settings. The service was helpful and friendly. The tapas was delicious and the fish of the day superb. The children shared a kids meal as it was huge. Beer great!... More
