We had high hopes for an excellent meal. We were not disappointed. The food and service was Michelin class. We will be back.

La Rencontre is our favorite Perpignan restaurant. We have lunch here at least once a month, usually the set weekday lunch at €18, but recently we've had their Saturday menu at €30, and today we're just now recovering lunching on their excellent 6-course menu degustation at €55, worth every centime.

I have now been at La Rencontre a number of times, and I have no hesitation to say that this is one of the best restaurants where I have ever been. The food proposed does not limit itself to the usual Catalan menu, but goes far beyond it. Hervè and Guillarme have a fine taste for each and every product... More

Visited for the first time on the recommendation of a friend. Loved the interior design. The lunchtime menu was good and the presentation of the food just great. The flavours were wonderful. A great treat!

My husband and I had two dinners here. Both were satisfactory and the chef used high quality fish and best cuts from lamb and pork. We didn't try the beef. The fish was well executed too. The menu was simple and short and choices were not many. This restaurant stands out from the others which are mostly a plancha types.... More
