Located just outside the village, this restaurant has a big terrace offering peaceful surrounding views (and sometimes a lot of flies so alternatively you can sit inside!). They serve up generous lunchtime menus including e.g. Mediterranean salad with grilled peppers and hearty ‘grillade catalane’ (sausage, black pudding, lamb and pork). Their home made cassoulet - duck and white beans in a rich sauce - is also highly recommended if you're into calories!

Useful information: Menus: €20-€30. Open lunchtime plus Friday and Saturday evenings. Closed Mondays from October to May; closed all January.
