We were lost looking for our accommodation when we happened upon this restaurant. It is housed in a beautiful stone building on a side street. The restaurant staff were very professional, with Rafael from Perpignan deserving a special mention. The decor is lovely with nicely...More

We had some difficulty locating the bistro: it was tucked away in a back street and a little out of the way (although not too far from St Georges Square). Our starter of lambs cheese souffle with almonds and wilted spinach was really good. I...More
