We have never been treated so horribly by anyone in the service industry. We felt like we were intruders and more than unwelcome. The waitress (small with dark blonde hair) was disgustingly rude to not only our table but to all the tables around and even to her fellow employees. My girlfriends avocado salad had no avocado, we were not... More

Family of 6, 3 generations, enjoyed the atmosphere, service and food of this colourful restaurant in Leucate. Toreadors and Matadors featured in huge posters and the food was excellent.

Had a lovely meal here. Great tapas and wine. The staff were busy but were attentive. We were in the charming courtyard which added to a great night.

The rudest welcome of any restaurant I have ever visited in France. Trust me, that takes some doing. Arrogant, surly, down right rude. Would go back if it was the only joint in town, which by the way it isn't there are many much better. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. AWFUL

Chanced on this place whilst struggling to find somewhere to eat late. Jamon (large portion), octopus, squid all good. Staff busy, but not slow. A nice change from the more traditional eating locally.

Pretty dismal. Awful service, waiter had to be called several times just to ask for a bottle of water. Food portions were small and often tasteless. J'ai pensé que le repas était beaucoup trop cher et ce n'était pas une bonne qualité pour le prix. Avoid.

Looked great but was disappointed with the menu and quality of the food and we weren't the only ones. There was also something very odd going on with the drinks, the drink in the bottle was not what it said it was, very weird.

We enjoyed an interesting and comparatively inexpensive meal at Bodega El Flamingo, on the main road in Leucate village. The patio merges with the inside of this charming restaurant, which is on the main road but isn't bothered by traffic noise. We chose from one of the set menus, and the food was both well prepared and well presented. For... More

The operator of our hotel had told us no reservation was needed at the nearby restaurants, which turned out to be bad advice. We ended up at this place as one of the only ones that could take us. The food was reasonably priced but certainly unremarkable and certainly nothing gourmet. We woudl not eat there again.

Thank Cankenjan
