My husband and I greatly enjoyed dinning at La Balette during our week in Collioure. We had the full tasting menu which was remarkable. The service and food were both excellent. Although the restaurant has one Michelin star it is better than a two star...More

The setting is glorious and - for once - the food does not disappoint. Far from it. Almost every mouthful was a wonderful discovery. The service was the best I have come across in France; attentive but not overwhelming. All the staff were charming and...More

I recall at least one vege dish, however they should have their menu online
Bonjour, merci pour votre avis qui m'est tres utile. Vous parlez d'un supplement de 5e pour un changement de plat. Est-ce que cela veut dire que si je change chaque plat du menu (cap bear), donc l'entrée, plat et dessert, le supplement sera 3 x 5e, voire 15e supplementaire? C'est à dire le menu à 49e reviendra à 64e? Je compte à y sejourner plusieures nuits. Merci d'avance pour votre confirmation. cdt,

Shirt and dressed trousers will do fine in summer, no need for tie and jacket. As they say themselves, we're a sea-side restaurant.
