Flavours, service, view and value!
Lovely little restaurant worth seeking out. A small menu with good variation makes choosing easy. Going for the 23Euro menu, we were not disappointed. Fresh local sea food (and non seafood, but I love fish) was aboslutely delicious and beautifully presented. The service was friendly and sitting outside with a harbour view was delightful.

Another excellent meal
I have visited this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. This time with 3 friends, all with a wide experience of good restaurants, we were all extremely impressed by the quality of the starters and by the perfectly cooked turbot, accompanied by a lovely Provence rose. This is fish cooking at its very best

Great lunches there; the oysters and anchovies were delicious,
This restaurant located on the Quai Francois Joly in Port-Vendres, has a mellow vibe where people share their experiences, during balmy evenings, with a beautiful view of the port in the background. The welcome is very pleasant, with the laconic personae of the seafarers who attend to the basics with patience and courtesy. We had some great lunches there; the oysters and anchovies were delicious, and red mullets to die for! Hoping to get back there soon.

Good restaurant in Port-Vendres. Great seafood as expected. Friendly service and very good grand chou (bit like a profiterole)

a massive disappointment
My wife and I rarely have an overall negative view of any restaurant, least of all write about it, but this, considering it is classified as the second most popular restaurant in the town, was one of our worst experiences ever. We spotted the 3-course 13.50€ lunchtime menu on the board outside - great! There was no wine list (always a worry) so we had to go in without knowing the prices. We were given a warm welcome, and the service was attentive throughout. However, that was the sum total of our pleasure. We were given the tiniest of bowls that contained octopus. OK but we couldn't eat it so gave it back. We could have expected some peanuts or crisps instead. The wine prices did not match the price of the menu. No pichets at all, so we had to buy half bottles (the cheapest was 12€) or bottles that started at around 16€. We had one bottle at 18€ and a half bottle for 12€ i.e. 30 euros before the food bill. We both had the salad starter. I am not exaggerating when I say that it was 95% lettuce + 3 of the smallest bits of duck (not worth having), 2 onions, and an eighth of a pear segment. There was no egg. Three main meals were advertised: 2 types of fish and a steak. We were informed that there was no steak today. So my wife had the small hake (and even though there were 2 pieces, they were VERY small). I was offered chicken instead of the steak. No reason was given for the lack of steak. When mine arrived, the chips covered the plate and there were 2 chicken kebabs with 3 TINY round pieces of chicken on each skewer. No dressing, sauce, lettuce. Nothing. It would not even have satisfied a young child. We both had ice-cream for dessert. The bill was 57€. We felt cheated. We always leave a tip, but not this time. We left the bill on the table in disgust. If we'd stayed to pay the bill directly, I would not have trusted myself not to ask for a refund. I can imagine the reaction. Future customers would be well advised to ask about the wine before entering and to check that all the dishes are available as advertised. The wine list was brought out on a huge blackboard that was impossible to rest on the table in comfort. We do hope we don't have to write such a negative review again.

A First Rate Meal.
We sat on the beautiful terrace with its stunning views across the bay and enjoyed an exceptional meal. Fish courses of tuna, perfectly cooked, and St Pierre were followed by succulent pigeon and ris de veau. We drank Collioure wines from Clos des Paulilles which impressed us so much that we visited the vineyard later to taste and buy. Service was friendly, informative and efficient. This is an expensive place, but it is well worth the money.

We spotted this little restaurant just passing by, and were able to get a table-in-waiting by enjoying a Banyuls apéro outside. Once seated inside we enjoyed the tuna and salmon starters followed by two sublime fillet steaks washed down with local wine - all complimented by cheerful service.

Best restaurant in Collioure?
We have visited Le 5eme peche several times and this evening we had the menu dégustation. I let the pictures speak. Japan-Catalonia fusion with focus on seafood. Just superb!If Masashi Iijima go for it, I think he can get a Michelin star. The waiter is service minded, nice and knowledgeable. Recommended to book a table. And next to the restaurant you find the excellent tapas and wine bar Casa Gala.

Very chic tapas bar with interesting and delicious tapas, good wine and friendly staff. The place was packed and we were lucky to get a table outside on a very balmy night. Four dishes were enough for dinner for the two of us so they were quite generous.

Good dining base for exploring the town
Nice small place in the heart of the old town center, a block from the water. Excellent seafood - oysters, anchovies, mussels - served in a tapas format. Limited but good selection of drinks, all reasonably priced. At least one server speaks Spanish in addition to French, staff are friendly.
