La Roma

La Roma is highly praised, not only because of the pizzas traditionally cooked with wood fire and the great selection of house wines, but also for the friendly staff and the central location that makes this restaurant a convenient place to stop by for lunch when touring Perpignan.

Dining

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.
