Honestly when I first saw the menu I hated the sound of everything on it.. However after being newly educated to the finest French cuisine I can now say this was the greatest meal I have ever eaten in my whole entire life. If your reading this listen to me carefully, YOU NEED TO GO AND EAT FOOD HERE. A... More

We came on a recommendation from Jonathan at Domaine Treloar, followed up by a glance at Trip Advisor. Our expectations were high - and entirely fulfilled! We're hoping to return with friends in the final week of our two months in Rousillon and just wish we'd been before. The food looked beautiful on the plates and the tastes did not... More

This a lovely restaurant with dishes that are well researched, original and taste good too! The owners are very attentive in a discreet but efficient manner, always with a warm smile and a great sense of humour. I enjoyed my meal feeling both pampered and at the same time at home.

This restaurant is tiny - about 14 seats - so either arrive very early or make a reservation. The owner (and his single assistant) does the cooking and the wife, who speaks perfect English, deals with the customers. The cuisine is to the highest standards and almost all the ingredients are sourced locally. My impression is that it is not... More

Really a perfect little boutique type restaurant. Feels like you were invited into a chefs dining room as it's quaint and intimate. The meal was simple, mouthwatering, unique and we really enjoyed the very personalized service! Truly worth a stop in Argeles-sur-Mer! It's just what a visitor would love to experience if looking for authentic surroundings and creative flavors in... More

A truly magnificent New Year's Day lunch at Restaurant La Bartavelle with foodie friends and family was just the way to celebrate! We started off with an Amuse-bouche of artichoke soup with poached egg and caviar sprinkles, and how did I know it would only get better?! A lobster mousse appetizer with lobster pieces in a cream sauce, followed by... More

This restaurant is worth the stop in Argeles Sur Mer! Stay at Hotel Le Nid and it's a 5 minute walk to the restaurant. Make reservations! It only seats 16 people and it is SO worth it! We had an amazing 5 course totally gourmet meal. Stephanie was great at explaining everything in English...she is so sweet. The food is... More

Lunch here is under 20 euros for great quality food - all fresh and bright on the plate, bursting with flavour. I've said it before and I'll say it again - you just can't do any better than this in the region. The husband and wife team are friendly and efficient, the ambience is relaxed and friendly, and the food... More

My wife and I visited La Bartavelle for an evening meal. We were not disappointed. This is a very confidently, calmly, intelligently and wittily presented eating experience. There is excellent communication front of house and obviously superb culinary work in the viewable kitchen. The food represents Catalunya beautifully by bringing together many familiar flavours, and ingredients with the establishments signature... More

I have had the pleasure of "discovering" Bartavelle almost when it opened (I think it might have been there the second week). No trip to Argelès is complete without a meal there and I would make a trip to Argelès just to eat there. Have organized myself a meal for a friend, have attended meals hosted by others - always...
