This restaurant is worth the stop in Argeles Sur Mer! Stay at Hotel Le Nid and it's a 5 minute walk to the restaurant. Make reservations! It only seats 16 people and it is SO worth it!

We had an amazing 5 course totally gourmet meal. Stephanie was great at explaining everything in English...she is so sweet. The food is 5-star and the Michelin folks should be sending someone out to give it a Michelin Star - it's that good. Trip Advisor needs a 10 for this restaurant! The depth and quality of flavors delivered by the chef are well thought out and obviously tested over time. Layer after layer of flavor - along with amazing presentations, make this a definite value and tons of fun.

The meals are not only delicious beyond description, but if I did describe them, there is not enough space here! All I can say is GO, GO GO!!

Lunch here is under 20 euros for great quality food - all fresh and bright on the plate, bursting with flavour. I've said it before and I'll say it again - you just can't do any better than this in the region.
The husband and wife team are friendly and efficient, the ambience is relaxed and friendly, and the food is refined but full of flavour.
The winelist is really great - 50 wines or so with lots of value and quality.
The place is a little hard to find, and there's little parking nearby, but its worth the effort!

My wife and I visited La Bartavelle for an evening meal. We were not disappointed. This is a very confidently, calmly, intelligently and wittily presented eating experience. There is excellent communication front of house and obviously superb culinary work in the viewable kitchen. The food represents Catalunya beautifully by bringing together many familiar flavours, and ingredients with the establishments signature presentations. Some of the food provides adventure and some entertainment but all of it was first class.

I have had the pleasure of "discovering" Bartavelle almost when it opened (I think it might have been there the second week). No trip to Argelès is complete without a meal there and I would make a trip to Argelès just to eat there. Have organized myself a meal for a friend, have attended meals hosted by others - always exceptional.
The owners (hostess, wife and a person of many talents + chef and husband) together with a separate pastry person run the whole show. Let yourself be guided by their expertise and whatever the chef's current find is and you'll never go wrong. They are also always able to match the wines to the culinary delights. My last meal there lasted 4 hours! Do reserve though as only 16 seats. http://www.restaurant-labartavelle.fr/

This is a restaurant of top class. They only have 16 seats, so reserve when you want to go here. The service, food, wines and knowledge of all is from very high quality. We went with our kids from 6 and 2 but that wasn't a problem. We will be back for sure when we're in the region.
