“Good simple seafood served with friendly style”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2011

For a final fling after a week in Banyuls-sur-Mer, four of us went for dinner, hoping for and getting a real seafood feast. The E35 menu beckoned (actually, the E45 beckoned but we decided to restrain ourselves for some reason!), but before we got to choose we were presented with a bowl of tapenade and some bread - a surprising touch in such a straightforward establishment.
Seafood platters for starters were de rigeur - prawns, mussels, boulots (whelks), oysters aplenty - enough for a main course for some.
I followed this with a Perillade Catalane (mixed fried or grilled seafood - monkfish and a couple of other local tasty but unidentifiable fish) while others had a grilled skewer of scallops, prawns and monkfish served attractively hanging over a plate of couscous, stuffed tomoato, rice etc....
Desserts were the usual round of ice-cream etc - perfectly OK but nopthing ot write home about.

Coffee was follwed by a freebie pink fizz offered by the waither 'because of your good humour'.
Our waiter was brilliant - passable English yet he picked up our abilities in French (ranging from almost none to getting fluent) and rarely used his English, He really was VERY good, being there when we wanted him and not when we didn't - deserved his substantial tip.

A good evening on the side of the harbour - nice fnish to a great week in the area.

“Amazing seafood platters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2009

Had dinner outside on the terrace one hot evening in August. Port Vendres isn't anything special but we walked from Collioure to have a change of venue. Not that many restaurants but this one attracted us as it has a fresh fish shop attached. The platters of seafood were truly amazing and the steak frites (our youngest isn't keen on seafood) was exceptional. Good wine,friendly staff, great food and a lovely atmosphere, all at a reasonable price(for the area).
