We stopped in here one evening for some beers. The main man pointed out that it was a restaurant but they'd accommodate us as they were quite quiet. The food looked nice so we decided to pay a return journey. On our 2nd visit the place looked just as inviting with probably half the tables free... read more

Sadly, the great service is terribly spoiled by the extremely poor quality food. Stop by for a drink, chat to the friendly staff but don't eat here. The loud 80s ballads don't help the atmosphere either.

Do yourself a favour and skip the flabby dorade for a day and enjoy mid afternoon tapas in this great little bar. It is totally unpretentious and cheap but does super ballota ham and a duck parmentier tapas which at 6€ is pretty well given away. Always a few specials, latest of which I found to be great was a...

Once you find this restaurant be prepared to enjoy some sensational tapas. Some of the recipes are Vinny grandmothers but they are all cooked and served in his style. I could easily sit and graze and chat an afternoon away in this really friendly place.

This is not a plush sit-down restaurant but a quirky tapas bar down a quiet back street. We had a good selection of tasty tapas including spaghetti de courgette and stuffed mushrooms and some really good house white wine. The owner was very friendly and welcoming with excellent English and really interesting to talk to. No, he doesn't have the... More

An awful experience,dingy location from the tables and chairs; plastic playground types; to the tasteless microwaved food. Do yourself a favour and eat anywhere else, it would have to be better than what we got in July 2014. After readying the trip advisor reviews I thought we were going to have a wonderful experience.So much so, that when my husband... More

We looked for this interesting little tapas bar due to the reviews on Tripadvisor. Must have been a bad night. We ordered the mixed tapas plate (29 Euros) to share that took 40 minutes to arrive. It turned out to be mainly burnt toast with tomatoes and a few other toppings. The waitress did offer to have them replaced but... More

We were 5, and choosed different dishes. Duck was good, but rest was average. In my opinion there are a few better tapas restaurants in Collioure, and several better restaurants.
