We thoroughly enjoyed this tiny restaurant in the heart of Argeles Village. The food was superb, the hostess charming and helpful (she spoke fluent English) and the general ambience was what one has come to expect from this type of french restaurant. We dined there twice and each time found the food and service all that one could desire. The fresh anchovy starter sitting on a tomato and aubergine puree was stunning as was the rolled, stuffed Pork served with an interesting array of small vegetables. The chocolate dessert was to die for and we hope this will still be on the menu in 2013. This is a relatively new restaurant which I am sure will go from strength to strength. Wines were very good and overall we felt The Bartavelle was very reasonably priced.

We visited this restaurant on the back of the reviews from Trip Advisor and it more than lived up to the very high expectations set.

The food tasted and was presented excellently. My wife and I speak little French but each course was explained in English (or French) as you desire. The food and wine was locally sourced and the waitress was extremely knowledgable.

We would certainly recommend people to eat here but you may have to book in advance, we booked Wednesday and the first space was Saturday. Book in advance, you will not be disappointed!

Can't say enough how much we enjoyed our evening at Bartavelle. The restaurant is intimate, the hosts obviously are passionate about food and every detail is lovingly attended to.

We first discovered this restaurant last Autumn, when we were lucky enough to nab the last available table for lunch.

We couldn't wait to visit again and did so in June. The experience was just as good. The couple who run it are committed to serving high quality, well presented food. The set lunchtime menu offers no choice - but this has not been a problem!

We'll be back in September, so we don't want any of you nabbing the last table!

I followed the comments on Tripadvisor and the least I can say is that this restaurant lives up to its reputation!
Wonderful food and service, a feast for both the eyes and the palate : the chefs are obviously passionate about their art... all at a very reasonable price.
You need to book a little in advance as the restaurant is small (16 people max) which gives it an intimate atmosphere and enabled us to be pampered by the waitress.
If you ever travel near Argelès, don't miss this great place!!!
