After a week in the Languedoc I realised that - though we've tried out quite a few restaurants - none of them were drool with every bite beyond outstanding with regard to the food. We then dropped in to Chez Simone for old times sake, and every single dish was fabulous. Whether we had luck, I cannot say - but... More

Was expecting a an ok meal . Truly disappointing. Maybe it's because it's mid oct . A third of the items on the menu not available . I ordered hot gambas they arrived cold and spongey and were just under 14 euros for a tapas dish . My husband ordered pork in a BBQ sauce which was served on white... More

Called in on Sunday and had a table for 8, waiter advised a selection of Tapas for chef to decide. Bit apprehensive but what a feast,,,,,two breads with toppings a meat platter with cheese and seafood plates that were outstanding - squid and calamari so fresh and in great dressing.Came to approx 30 euros a head without wine, excellent.

The eternal dilemma about where to eat: a place with a good location or a place with good food? As our favourite (Casa Gala) was shut, we came here. What to say? The tuna tartare looked ancient and tasted of nothing much and the black rice was massively overcooked. The salmon and wakame was ok but under seasoned and the... More

1st reviewed this in 2012 when it was a truly lovely 'hole in the wall' Tapas bar of merit. It is no longer like that. Not sure whether it has been sold or owners have changed their strategy. The place is now worse than many others on the seafront. Seems to be catering for the masses these days. Menus are... More

A beautiful evening spoilt by bad service. The main course arrived 90 min.(!) after the entrée and was stone cold. No effort was made to remedy and the chef even dared to say that, well.. this was a course to be eaten cold.. ! (A Thai course rapidly heated - mi cuit - to be served out hot; the very... More

Well for a English abroad and in search for a meal, I would tell anyone to go. Calamari was to die for. The food and staff were exceptional. Hope you have the same pleasure as we did

Took the Collioure salad, Loop and Dorade for us too - my Loop was pretty small and so a bit overcooked. Are they letting it slip as they used to be pretty good - seems like the same front of house
