I have been going there for the last nine years and not once have I been disappointed, on the contrary always excellent. The owners are always welcoming and friendly. After your first visit, if you return, you will be remembered. The price is extremely reasonable for the quality of food that you get. There is an atmosphere that I enjoy... More

Aida did us proud as always. There were 12 of us for Sunday lunch and it was very good. We have been coming here for years and it never disappoints. The ingredients are fresh and locally sourced where possible. It is also a great place to stop for a drink and watch the antics of the drivers such as the... More

Another memorable meal, a 3 course meal for 23 euros a head. The buffet starter with Catalan tasters, the fresh moules or goats cheese starters were excellent. Main courses of cod gratin, or succulent melt in the mouth pork cheeks, or pork in moutarde or the soft, tender squid risotto. We all had silky butternut squash purée and other veg.... More

Ate there one evening, but would not return as did not felt it offered value for money. The first and main courses were ok, but the dessert left a lot to be desired. We ordered Rhum baba, but it was more like a doorstop covered in cream. Nothing like the rhum babas we have eaten in the past. Very heavy... More

This was immediately okayed and they did the rest and the taxi arrived at the appointed hour. The food was wonderful and a good selection of wines. We enjoyed it all... More

Booked for dinner, as the place was at the end of our street and it seemed to have good reviews. His starter of jamon x 2 (types) wasn't any good - had seen better days, and his main of steak tartare was unseasoned and poor frites (oven chips). My starter of goats cheese salad (actually a sort of crepe) was... More

During a week long stay in Argeles we came here twice as the food and service were great. We felt very well looked after and were not rushed at any point, food was lovely and reasonably priced. Definitely a highlight in Argeles.

It was a wonderful day for a walk in the sun, so we strolled through the village, past the new natatorium to the Auberge restaurant, which we had never before tried. We were surprised at the spacious outdoor patio with forsythia vine-covered pergola, as well as ample indoor seating. The plat du jour was tasty and more than filling. D-L... More

We found this place by chance and liked the terrace from outside so we stopped there. What a surprise to see the menu, very different from what other restaurants offer. They really bring creativity and variety, besides that the dishes are very well prepared and the personel always taking care. A place to try and remember, really.
