Limited Opening

Further to our last post advising of a temporary closure, I am happy to say that we will be opening on a limited basis for take away orders.

Starting Saturday 4 April for lunchtime we will be offering a take away service. For this week it will be a 3 course menu of the day plus some paninis. We are hoping to extend our opening next week and should be offering lunch on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We are also planning to offer an Easter Sunday lunch. Due to the current coronavirus restrictions we are only able to offer take away.

Once we have seen how this weekend works for us we will publish a take away menu in addition to a menu of the day. The daily menu will be published on our facebook page at

The ordering process is simple. We will accept orders via SMS to our usual number, you may send us an email or send us a message through facebook. Please be as precise as possible with your order and the time you would like to collect. We will respond to you and give you a time for collection. Orders can be collected from the front door – unfortunately you are not allowed inside the restaurant. We accept card payments and cash.

Please be assured that we will operate to the highest hygiene standards and will provide our usual high standard of food and service.

Here is a link to our temporary take away menu. It is very likely to change regularly but I will endeavour to keep it updated here

Temporary Closure

As everyone is no doubt aware all the restaurants and bars in France have been ordered to close until, at least, 15th April.  There are exceptions to this if the restaurant offers a take away or delivery service.  We had seriously considered offering a take away only service but with the new heightened restrictions that came in to effect we feel it would not be viable for us and we also do not wish to place ourselves or our customers at risk.

We are currently at home, gradually eating the stock from the restaurant and making plans for when we are allowed to re-open.  As soon as this is possible we will be back with new menus and, possibly, a slightly new concept.

In the meantime please stay safe, observe the restrictions and together we will defeat this virus and come back stronger and better than ever!!

St Valentine’s

St Valentine’s, Friday 14th February 2020, is an opportunity for you to enjoy a special evening with us at the restaurant.  It is also a leap year, so ladies the ball is in your court! We had planned to create a “pop-up” restaurant at our home but we have had to change our plans.

The restaurant will be open on the friday evening of St Valentine’s and we will be serving a special menu.  The menu may also be available on saturday 15th but we cannot guarantee that at this stage.

There is the possibility to add a supplementary course of breaded scallops with leeks wrapped in nori for an additional 5€.

Booking is essential, which can be done from the Bookings page on this site.

January / February

The end of year festivities have finished and we have welcomed a new decade but the fun has not finished there!

The Chinese New Year, or as it is also known, the Lunar New Year, takes place on saturday 25th january.  We are creating a special Chinese themed menu in the restaurant for the evening of the 25th.  Being conscious that is January and many people will have overspent during December we have priced this special evening at an incredible 20€.  There will be enough food to satisfy the largest of appetites!

If you would like to join us for the Chinese New Year on saturday 25th January you will need to reserve your place by wednesday 22nd January.

Moving into February, St Valentine’s on the 14th.  We are once again creating a “pop-up” restaurant at our home in Fuilla for a very special meal on the evening of the 14th.  We have a large space at the front of our house with panoramic views across to the Mount Canigou which we will endeavour to make as romantic as possible!

In addition to a very special meal we also have accommodation available in our garden apartment.  Here is a link
