The lunch menu is a seasonal surprise, wonderful tastes and beautifully balanced, each course complimenting the next. Very attentive service, welcoming... More

The Menu Gastronomique is an affordable price. It was lunchtime, and it seemed that many of the diners were regulars. The dishes were absolutely stunning to look at, but we felt that seasoning was a little lacking in some cases and didn't quite hit the spot of some other Michelin restaurants we have eaten in. The citrus relish accompanying the... More

Generous and inexpensive the menu offers 8 dishes. It is a single menu, so makes decisions easy and the restaurant is flexible if there is anything you don't like. Overall my sentiment is that the chef tries to put to much in every dish. This results is a mixture of tastes that don't always go well together. I am quite... More

I love this style! Perfect service, friendly staff, very nice interior, very friendly and funny sommelier and AWESOME MENU! Each course was perfect. I enjoyed all of it, using of tomatoes was very nice and everithing was perfectly cooked and served. The combination of lamb confit and cumin was the best. Thanks for amazing evening :)

The first four dishes of our fabulous value for money Menu Gastranomique were all based on the many varieties of tomato grown by the chef - just stunning, and the following courses lived up to the early promise of the meal. Impeccable yet friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere meant it was a lovely experience for the four of us.... More

On a short stop in Perpignan, we used the opportunity to have lunch at this superb establishment. The welcome and service were extremely warm and the menu degustation was sublime. The 'wow' was there with every course in spades. We've been recalling the pleasure of this meal for days as it was on a par with another restaurant we have... More

La galinette is a place for people who love food. The ingrediences are top quality and it’s the best place to eat in Perpignan. The ambiente inside is not wow and for people looking for show off the restorant might appear to simple and boring. We didn’t like the atmosphere in the restaurant, but the food is just amazing.

My wife and I have been to La Galinette twice in recent years, and will certainly be going again. On both occasions we took the Menu Gastronomique, and put ourselves in the capable and sensible hands of the sommelier for the accompanying wines. The food is a delightful, copious, always interesting, and sometimes surprising trip through the chef's passions for... More

Having visited many Michelin starred restaurants I would say that this one was OK, however I wasn't wowed. We had the degustation menu, with wines suggested by the sommelier - each course arrived promptly, and whilst it was enjoyable I wasn't "wowed" I would still say it's worth a visit, even if the price quality ratio isn't 100% balanced.
