Very nice lunch at La Bartavelle in Argeles. This restaurant serves high-quality ‘photo-friendly’ food that was delicious and fulfilling. Joan had a three course set menu. The starter was a foie gras served in a martini glass. It contained layers of foie gras, apple chunks, avocado, a foamed cream. She smiled and hummed ‘delicious’ a few times while eating it....

Absolutely fabulous meal. Great service. Beautiful fresh produce and perfectly cooked and presented. Interesting menu with something to suit everyone. Very original flavours and definitely worth a visit, or two or three. The only tiny downside if I'm being really picky is the space. When we went it was a really hot evening and the place is quite small.

We were recommended Bartavelle as being the best in the area; a reservation allowed us to get in in about a week. A small lovely room; tastefully decorated and holds about 16 in total. Menu is also small with 3 to 4 choices for each course. English or French menus are offered and Stephanie who works front of house explains... More

Wonderful, innovative, creative etc. Reservations an absolute must. The owner and his wife run this jewel wonderfully, prices are very reasonable and the food is wonderful. The lady of the house explains the dishes proposed with great details and enthusiasm. I had the Boulinada,and a magnificent variation of a Catalan dessert, Bras de Venus. The place is not fancy, small... More

We had lunch here during out stay in Argeles (only because they were fully booked for dinner during our entire stay - so book ahead!!) and it was perfect. The food is amazing, the service attentive but not over the top and the surroundings very welcoming. The best meal we have eaten so far in 2014, if you are in... More

La Bartavelle is an incredibly excellent little restaurant in the centre of Argeles-sur-mer, a seaside village in the far south of France. The couple who run it, Thibeau and Stephanie, together with pastry chef Remy, are passionate about food and service, and the passion comes through in the creativity of their dishes, delightful presentation, and a personable warmth that pervades...

By far the best restaurant we've ever visited on our many travels through Europe. We make a point of eating here whenever we're in Argeles. The food is simply outstanding and the service impeccable. The set menu priced at just under EUR 40 is excellent value for money. Not to be missed if you are staying in this part of... More

Booked here Based purely on Tripadvisor and having passed the restaurant when it was closed and thought it looked contemporary and cosy. Lunch was amazing. We live in London but would expect a bill of twice as much for this sort of quality. Would highly, highly recommend to any ' foodies' out there. As others have said this is a... More

Came here on a recommendation. It is small (16 covers) so need to book in advance - we called on a Wednesday and couldn't get a table until Sunday but well worth the wait. We had the 37 euro menu and it was amazing - on a par with the best Michelin star restaurants in London but a fraction of... More
