One street down from the train station, this courtyard restaurant was recommended by our hotel concierge. It was great. Wood grilled seafood and meats presented in the Catalan style at reasonable prices make this a wonderful choice. If you want a courtyard table, reserve early. The "inside" tables are still outside but under a covering.

This is an busy restaurant with interesting decor , charming terrace, good food AND atmosphere! So rare in this part of the world! Candles, fairy lights, paintings on the wall, tablecloths & excellent food - not a formica table or strip light in sight! Chicken slightly under-cooked in the middle & pitted concrete floor - would probably be closed down... More

We stayed at the local Comfort Inn at the railway station and the reception staff recommended this restaurant, around 200 yards away. We had a really nice meal here, and the price was great for the high quality of the food. Cool decor, cosy atmosphere inside, lots of character, staff very friendly. Well worth a visit.

If you find yourself in Perpignan and staying at the hotel at the main railway station do yourself a favour and look this little gem of a local restaurant up. Just one block back from the road in front of the station, on the bus terminal side, it's down a little short street, you can't see it unless you wander... More

Staying close to the station, you don't need to wander too far from you hotel to find a great local restaurant. Good simple food, cooked over an open charcoal grill. We tried the half roast chicken, and the mixed seafood platter, washed down with some house wine. Both very nice, and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was warm, with locals out... More

Food was exceptional, BBQ mussels on a wire cage simply fantastic as was the steak and the simple carafe of local wine. If you did not know it was there you would miss it altogether as no signs, easier to find as the BBQ gets going as you just follow the fantastic aroma. Was full of local French and visiting... More

Gem of a restaurant. Lovely ambience, great service, delicious food and good value. Tucked away down a side street, twinkly lights with a grotto like entrance.

Charming restaurant on a very quiet street. In fact you could easily walk right by it. Service was excellent and so was the food. Interior decoration is a bit artsy and quite atmospheric, outside is more of a garden setting. Either is a good choice. We had dinner here 2 of our 4 nights in Perpignan.
