We spent a few days in Collioure in early October. We'd been warned not to go in the height of the season and we feel we saw the place at its best. The ancient chateau of Collioure dominates the seafront and separates the real tourist hotspots from a slightly less commercial area that is actually a more attractive harbour area than the main part of town. L'Ambroiserie is located in a small square set back from the front, but with a terrace view of the chateau and the water. Our impression of Collioure restaurants was that you could eat badly and spend a lot of money or both. L'Ambroiserie was an exception and we'd rate it above the other places we ate in Collioure. The only problem is that the restaurant itself is tiny and there are more tables outside than the 16 places inside. On a cool October evening everyone ate inside (though aperitifs were served on the terrace) and the young couple running the place (he cooks, she does everything else) were just about in control of the process. We were happy to wait a while for our food, but it's no place to go if you're in a hurry, and I'm sure if the terrace is full then service will be that much slower. Anyway, the food was excellent, well prepared and presented and the local wine was reasonably priced. One of the other things we enjoyed about our evening was that we heard no other English (or American) voices - even in October quite a feat in Collioure, judging by the other places we ate. Trip Advisor informs us that there are 45 restaurants in Collioure. We recommend this one.
