We were visiting the region mid-week during the most quiet time of the year when most restaurants are on holiday. We were surprised to find Les Loges open and willing to seat us and while we were driving there stressed about what we were likely to find given that we would likely be the only diners.

In the end the evening could not have gone better. I started with the foie gras and then the rack of lamb, both of which were great. The great surprise was the goat's milk sorbet which was delicious and served at exactly the right temperature and consistency. Dessert consisted of four tastings, all terrific.

The restaurant was a brief ten-minute drive off the main road from Prades.

We booked in advance. We (4 adults) were the only ones eating in the restaurant. In the other end of the room, 4 guys were having some kind of meeting with a power point presentation !?!
The waitress (the owner) was very condescending, especially as we told her, that we didn't know which vin to chose because of lack of knowledge on this matter. She became more welcoming during the dinner - especially when she learned that I speak french - but she was still almost hostile toward my non-frenchspeaking friends.
A really strange experience. The Price was very reasonable.

We had the ' Gourmand' menu at €38 each. The menu is in French and English. We were given 6 courses! Firstly, we were offered a taster of a flavoursome veal terrine and then we had our 2 different starters of lambs sweetbread tart and tuna with lemon. We both had the same main course of the Cathare pork loin with a mini pot of scrumptious lentils. We then were offered another surprise taster of goats cheese sorbet with strawberry sauce - this was a very interesting combination. We then had our puddings of strawberry sorbet in a chocolate biscuit base and I had the light and instantly melting macaroons with white chocolate mousse and a strawberry smoothie. Our meal was rounded off with petit fours. My husband was delighted by the apple and cinnamon smoothie as it tasted just like homemade crumble ! But without the crumble obvs!

After reading some of the critics here, I must say we where quite scared of going. After driving a few miles up the road, we were thinking we had the wrong address... the experience was unusual. The hotel restaurant is located in this remote village on the Canigou hillside. it's a quiet and beautiful location with nice walks around. The hotel rooms look less contemporary than the pictures on the website, the rooms are comfortable but a bit noisy and tacky. The food was excellent, the chef is classical but everything is perfectly cooked and executed, perfectly fresh and he really cares for what he is serving. The service is very good and the hostess has great advice as a sommelier, but I understand the critics, as she lacks of flexibility and is too much on the defensive side for a restaurant manager. Generous breakfast. Good overall experience.
