This cafe/bar does a great 'fixed price' menu for 9.80 euros for 3 courses. Nothing fancy but good, honest food, with decent portions. Beer & wine prices very reasonable. On market days, when the oyster van is in town, you can gather your plate of freshly shucked oysters, sit at a spare table outside the cafe, and they will give you a small glass of wine & basket of bread for 2 euros, to help wash it down. Very welcoming & friendly people.

Valerie and Didier have created a wonderful friendly bistro restaurant in the centre of Amelie which is deservedly popular with locals and tourists alike.

The menu du jour is excellent value for money and the variety offered on the 'carte' means that there should be something to suit everyone's tastes. We recommend the calamari and the fillet steak.

The 2 large TV screens are easy to view - but not too dominant - and very good for all sport including English football.

We look forward to our next visit!

We first visited L'Estaminet last year (2011) and as we had enjoyed the food so much and received such good service were keen to return - we were not disappointed. Well placed on a bright and cheerful square L'Estaminet is a real find. Sitting between two much more staid (and expensive) restaurants it is welcoming and on the evenings we visited very busy and no wonder with such a simple well priced menu.

Over three separate visits our party of three enjoyed a good selection of meals from the menu including the Calamar, Entrecote, Americaine and the estaminet pizza - each time washed down with a cheeky little demi of local Catalan rose. Adding coffee and a little dessert may push your bill up to around 40e - great value. Owners Didier and Valerie are very friendly and can certainly cook up a storm. We will be back.
