Made a late reservation and they were very accommodating. The food was superb, service excellent. The dining room was very modern which I liked and the chairs very comfy.

The restaurant is situated in a very unfashionable part of Perpignan but step inside and you will be transported to a culinary delight! A €25 three course lunch is offered at lunchtime, but this is no economy meal. It is prepared and presented in the same way as you would expect from any Michelin* offering. The fusion of colours, flavours... More

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

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
