Great location on the very side of the port,even better at night. The restaurant is very pleasant with subdued lighting and nice art. The food is truly stellar and has been for many years, perhaps they don't want the star with all the constraints that come with it, but this is the level of cooking on offer. Fabulous place for...

My brother Glen and Margaret treated me to a lovely evening on the veranda overlooking the harbour. Service was very attentive. The starter; crab canelloni with large prawn was delicious. Then beef or veal? with a potato/pastry parcel and a fine sauce. Then a chocolate cake which was superb. Delicious wine. To me pricey but one of the best meals... More

We were a group of 6 people with reservation. They showed us to the table and soon gave us the aperitif card, which had some interesting options. We chose a local one, and it sure was very fitting. The menu card wasn't that long but they had different combinations (entrée with main dish, with or without dessert). They also had... More

We visit this place at least once per year and it's time to review it. It is very consistent and of high quality. It is important to know that there is the terasse/grill on top of the gastronique restaurant. The terasse is less formal but still fine dining and excellent attention to details. The staff is pretty much the same... More

We were told this restaurant was good but very expensive. We booked a table for dinner at 8.00pm. When we arrived, exactly on time, the door was opened and standing inside to great us were 3 staff. They blandly pointed us to a large downstairs room that was totally empty. When we said we had booked and asked why we... More

We visited Port Venedres and decided to have lunch at La Cote Vermeille. The lunch was amazing. A calm waiter and a charming waitress served us two very good starters with thon tartare, local fish and vegitables. Paella as main was amazing. Very good wine and a speciality as dessert. Afterwards I read that Cote Vermeille is mentioned in ViaMischelin... More

We had an excellent meal here last week, the scallops in particular were some of the best I've ever had, and my dessert - simply titled 'Le Chocolat' - was up there with the very best, pure decadence. My only niggles were to do with the service and the clientele, and I admit to being completely subjective if not a... More
