L’assiette Catalane

This is one of the best places to try the Catalan style gastronomy at a reasonable price - paella, seafood, and more. The restaurant, serving succulent tapas, offers also a great selection of wines, especially from "Côtes du Roussillon". Set menus are available.


In Perpignan, the food has Catalan influences and is always accompanied by great regional wines. Among the most popular items are snails smothered in garlic, salted smoked hams, and richly stuffed sausages - all to be sampled. Of course, fresh Mediterranean-style seafood is also available. The Old Town is stashed with lively venues. Quai Vauban (beside the canal) attracts those who look for a more romantic evening. Restaurants often offer good value set menus (carte du jour), but reservations may be necessary.
