“Good for Thursday nights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We ate at l'Arago when we visited for les Jeudis de Perpignan...street music and theatre on Thursday nights during July and August. Yes, it is a large menu,but our food was fresh and arrived quickly (we had just waited 45 minutes at another restaurant, wihout even a basket of bread to keep us going), we stuck to salads and steaks, which were good and we didn't have to wait ages to be seated. We sat outside and so were in prime viewing position for wonderful street performances (although also shared the air with many cigarette smokers and I hate coming home smelling of fag smoke); staff were efficient and friendly and it's a good safe bet.

“Arago restaurant, Perpignan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

It's on Place Arago, it has acres of tables outside (in the summer) as well as large spaces inside (ground floor and upstairs) and it's a good, reliable open-all-hours restaurant.The menu is wide-ranging, but don't let that put you off. Bouquet de Crevettes is a fab starter - very fresh seafood. The pizzas are good value. The steaks are pretty good. The pasta dishes are fine,. Actually, we have NEVER had a bad meal there in six years, though it must be said that sometimes on busy evenings the waiters need a bit of reminding - in particular, to bring your bill at the end of the meal!

“Below average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

The card is rather large which should have warned us about the lack of quality.
Had pancake which were not served hot and tasted strange. The Spaghetti with scallops and the shrimps were not fresh.

“Nice Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Great location - in the same square as Cafe Vienne.
The groud floor restaurant has more ambience than the upstairs one. In the summer you can eat outdoors in the square for lunch or dinner. Thursday evenings in the summer are very busy so arrive early.
The pizzas are very good but there is also a good choice of fish and meat dishes.
Prices are very reasonable.

Ordered salad to start - equivalent of main course. Very fresh and good flavours.
Gambas planxa for main was beautiful. Server of food from kitchen was delightful. Only quibble would be main waiter.
V unfriendly. Food good value compared to others in city. Fresh and well presented.
