Go for the taster menu of 8 different dishes - each one is delicious! Using garden fresh vegetables and freshly caught fish this restaurant is an unforgettable gastronomic experience.

Warm welcome from the staff, good service. The 8 courses menu was great! Excellent combination of local products, tasty, fresh and beautifully presented. Extensive wine list at fair prices. I strongly recommend La Galinette and will definitely come back!

We will never be disappointed by La Galinette. It is certainly the best restaurant in the city center. Fresh products, vegetables from their garden, excellent choices of wine. The waiters and the sommelier give good advice. As far as the price is concerned, it is not expensive regarding the Michelin star they have ! Do not hesitate but remind booking... More

Fine food with lots of local ( Catalan ) ingredients, with some from the chefs garden, had the 8 course tasting menu with a local dry white wine, all excellent, try it if you can

Having never been in France before, I wasn't prepared for how DAMN GOOD the food is! I've heard about it, and had eaten in French restaurants in the USA, but WOW was this meal amazing! Each course was delectable and arrived in a timely manner. The portions, on their own, were tiny - a couple of bites each. But when... More

The Menu Gastronomique is an affordable price. It was lunchtime, and it seemed that many of the diners were regulars. The dishes were absolutely stunning to look at, but we felt that seasoning was a little lacking in some cases and didn't quite hit the spot of some other Michelin restaurants we have eaten in. The citrus relish accompanying the... More

Generous and inexpensive the menu offers 8 dishes. It is a single menu, so makes decisions easy and the restaurant is flexible if there is anything you don't like. Overall my sentiment is that the chef tries to put to much in every dish. This results is a mixture of tastes that don't always go well together. I am quite... More

I love this style! Perfect service, friendly staff, very nice interior, very friendly and funny sommelier and AWESOME MENU! Each course was perfect. I enjoyed all of it, using of tomatoes was very nice and everithing was perfectly cooked and served. The combination of lamb confit and cumin was the best. Thanks for amazing evening :)
