Good location for people watching in th the Place D'Arago. Relatively little choice for veggies but got s delicious veggie pasta dish. My partner was unlucky in making the mistake of not confirming that his goats cheese salad was actually veggie and it came, as they often do, with ham all over it. They quickly sorted though, efficiently and with... More

This is a lovely place we also pop into when we visit the city. It has a charming façade but not too old-fashioned. It's very good quality. The welcome & service was very warm & friendly. The menu is fairly standard, no big surprises. The food is great all the same. I'm sure you could order anything & it'll be... More

During our 1 day visit to Perpignan to watch Hull FC destroy the Catalan Dragons 38 10 we ate two meals at the place. The pizza with the roast peppers and pepperoni was outstanding. The waiter who served us was very polite and helpful. The Veal Milanese was enjoyed by 5 of the party that had this meal. The two... More

After asking for potatoes, cappucino and haricots verde, I was charged $26 for a baked potato and two coffees, the catch being I had to also buy the carpaccio of famously French, bloody, stringy beef that I said I did not want because I am a pescatarian. When I asked for water and another coffee a second time after waiting... More

We just wanted a main course each and nothing else. I had Moules in a Roquefort sauce and there were lots and lots of them in a fantastic sauce. My partner had an Entrecôte that came together with several interesting and tasty side dishes. We chose a simple wine and got an OK wine. The price was Ok too.This place... More

We were very disappointed with the selection available iin the old city with little or no variety on the menus; lots of Pizza joints and brasseries which all seemed to have... More

Incredible staff who can manage the entire place with just 4 highly skilled, really knowledgeable wait persons! Love how they hold a full tray of beverages, glasses w/ ice and straws in one hand, and use their other hand and ONE BENT KNEE UP to balance each bottled beverage one at a time while using a bottle opener to pop...
