Lovely food yet a little pricey

You can't beat this retardant for its location and view over the harbour but for 4 burgers and a salad and a few drinks €96 was a little steep. Great good and service though.

Having visited Collioure many times before and never been here we thought we'd give it a go . I would say don't believe some of the negative reviews you'll read on trip advisor as the food was wonderful and we will be going back !

You want to have a marvelous and colorful view of the sea and of Collioure, while eating some fresh and local food,try "chez Simone". Happy and professional service for this tapas restaurant. Not the most tasty, but the best combination of view/fresh-food of the City.

We had the huge privilege to stay ten days in Collioure at a friend's apartment, so we were able to cook most of our meals. However, we did venture out one day to splurge on lunch out. We have six children, one with a nut allergy, so it's always an event. We'd walked the streets of Collioure multiple times per... More

Chose this restaurant because of good reviews. We ordered burgers, which they didn't have, but we got to know this half way down the rosé wine; too late to choose another restaurant. Almost didn't excuse themselves, and we ordered a ham tapas and a collioure salad. The first course came with the side dish "bread with tomato", which actually WAS... More

Great place - the cuisine you wouldn't expect from a place 30 meters from the beach:-) amazing calamares a la plancha, patatas Braves, and for the dessert - inoubliable trio de crema catalana Amazing - plus they serve throughout the day, while in most places nearby the cuisine is closed by 3pm until dinner. The staff is very nice:-) Recommend!

Having stayed in Collioure a few times, we have always admired Chez Simones location. This time staying with our daughter and her partner, we thought it a good time to try the tapas but as both are vegetarians I enquired via tripadvisor as to the vegetarian options. I received a prompt reply back which made us decide to give it... More

Looking for a light lunch we chose a table just inside Chez Simone with a great view of the sea front. Odd that Galettes and Bruschetta were off (why?) when they formed the majority of the menu. The fish plat de jour was fine, the service friendly and the view...
