“Perfect restaurant for family lunch at outstanding quality level”
Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Located on the outside of Font Romeu this charming restaurant has all the atmosphere you can wish. The dishes are really good, try local ham, and the wines are great. All this served with knowledge and elegance. Will certainly come back here and recommend a visit for all who want an excellent meal for a decent price,

“Great Real Cuisine”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

In a region that mostly have bad fast foot restaurants "La Chaumiere" was a truly great refreshing surprise to our pallets.
Great inventive dishes with great service in this area that serves mostly seasoned tourist. We got the address after speaking with some locals that pointed it out as one of the best places in the area. I must admit that after 2 weeks of eating daily in the region during our holidays we visited there 3 times, since there were no other competition to their great cuisine.
If you are looking for real authentic cooking, great quality based on the Catalan cuisine your are in for a treat.
All the dishes we ordered were great and the a big added value was the kid's special menus that were also innovative and good for their tastes as well as ours.

“A perfect lunch”
Reviewed June 11, 2011

We stumbled across La Chaumiere when trying to guess where on the "Train Jaune" would give us the best place for lunch. We made a great guess. We got off at "Font-Romeu-Odeillo-Via". It's a 40 minute walk uphill from Odeillo, where the station is, to Font Romeu. The lunch we had here made it worth it.

The service was a perfect balance of friendliness and courtesy. The food was fabulous. The amous-bouche set a high standard. Then my starter of pig's trotter lollipop made me laugh when I saw it on the menu, made me take a picture when it arrived, and made me happy when I ate it. The lamb shoulder, cooked for 24 hours, was wonderful. My partner had a wonderful salad to start and her salmon was cooked to perfection.

At another table, people had their dog with them and it was made so welcome we wish we had been able to overcome the logistics of international dog travel. We were here in early summer, so things may necessarily be different at busier times here.

The place was lovely. The staff were more than tolerant of our halting French and made us feel welcome and special. They helped us toward the house digestif, which was fabulous. The only disappointment for us was discovering this place so late in our holiday that we couldn't make it back on this trip. We will next time.

“Real Food!”
Reviewed September 26, 2010

We visited La Chaumière twice during our vacation in Font-Romeu. The first time was a pleasant surprise - good food, nicely served- so we went for 'seconds'. The second time was even better: really the best pork chop we've ever tasted: Noir de Bigorre meat, so deliciously cooked to perfection that we just couldn't stop talking about how good it tasted! We couldn't stop eating either, even if the portions were more than generous. Nevermind the somewhat odd looking pictures on the walls, or the rest of the shed-like interior: the food and wine will just make you sit there with your eyes closed, savoring the moment!
