We really enjoyed our night here and it was worth every centime! Aperitifs by the pool watching the sunset over Port Vendres with some delicious appetisers whilst perusing the menu. Seated under the trees in the garden, watching the rabbit hop under each table for scraps our Amuse Bouche arrived - a tomato and potatoe creme brûlée - sounds odd... More

Le Cedre is in a beautiful spot above Port Vendres. We ate on the verandah under some amazing cedar trees (take insect repellant as we did get a couple of bites). Service was initially a little slow as it took a while to get acknowledged and drinks ordered, but we felt well looked after and our waitress was excellent, helping... More

Lively fishing town surrounded by great little bays and this quality restaurant with a wonderful terrace overlooking the bay and the med. Excellent wine list, attentive service and a well thought out menu. Good quality ingredients.

Not the cheapest food in Port Vendres, but more than fairly priced and probably some of the best food and service we have seen here. They opened early just for us, and we sat on the terrace for the evening. A rabbit, ran under our feet and spent the evening hopping around each table... Still not sure if it was... More

The cooking and presentation of the food is of the highest standard. The local part of the wine list very full and educational. The week we were there the menu was restricted to two fish and two meat dishes and the lamb ran out for two days to be replaced by the universal duck breast albeit perfectly cooked. We understand...

The reception was excellently warm and friendly. As the hotel was quiet, we were given an upgrade to a view down to the harbour. Although between main road and railway, we had no problems with night noise on a weekend. Buffet breakfast was very good quality and quantity, with first class cooked meats and homemade cakes. The dinner Menu du... More

I thought the food was really very good here - if a little expensive compared to some of the restaurants in the Port. That said, this was at a different level, with almost every course, on every evening being excellent value (we ate here 4 times in all). We had picked it out in advance and to be honest some...

We ate at this restaurant for two consecutive evenings as it was so good. Interesting and beautifully presented delicious food and wines. A must visit if you are in Port Vendres. Easy adjacent parking and a view to die for. Highly recommended. We will visit again if we are in the area.

I ununderstand that this restaurant has a Michelin star and if that is the case it is well deserved. It is both wonderful food and a lovely setting at the top of the hill. The Service is great and very knowledgeable of the region. Will visit again sometime.

Description
Sur les conseils d'un caviste de Port-Vendres, nous avons passé la soirée au restaurant le Cèdre, qui est le restaurant de l'hôtel Les Jardins du Cèdre.Nous avons vraiment été très surpris car nous ne nous attendions pas à une telle qualité autant dans l'assiette que dans le service. Il semblerait qu'un nouveau chef soit aux commandes de la cuisine .... BRAVO tout est fait maison même le pain. Je n'ai pas trouvé ce restaurant dans la liste des restaurants de PORT-VENDRES et je trouve cela dommage car cette jeune équipe le mérite.
