Simply stunning location and view and some really great sea food and good service. Cannot recommend highly enough. If there is a restaurant with a better sea view, I'll eat my hat!

le 5eme peche

Reviewed By JaninedeBric - Denver, Colorado

Tipped off by friends who had just stayed in Collioure, we secured two seats at the kitchen counter for an evening. Though at first we'd wanted a table, we quickly changed our minds. My boyfriend has owned restaurants, and I've worked in them, and we both rank food and wine among our highest pleasures. So a front row seat to chef Masashi Iijima's work turned into a real theater for us. His quiet command of his small staff (one deputy, one prep, and a clean-up person) engaged us as he prepared the evening's set menu. We chose the higher end of the two offered, the degustation, plus paired wines, and we thoroughly enjoyed the fusion of French, Catalonian, and Japanese tastes and techniques he delivered. Flavors were seasonal and fresh, with familiar and unfamiliar ingredients used in surprising ways. From the amuse bouche to the dessert, we didn't feel a single note was off key. We look forward to a return visit on our next trip.

Restaurant La Balette

Reviewed By Rosemary E - Newcastle-under-Lyme, United Kingdom

We have visited this restaurant seven times over the last few years. It never disappoints. The location is fantastic, with incredible views across the bay to Collioure from the Terrace, where it's normal to eat unless the weather is inclement.
The staff are wonderful and attentive without being intrusive. English speaking staff are always on hand for those who are less confident with speaking French.
The food has been excellent on each occasion that we have dined and it is always interesting both in terms of flavour and presentation.
This year, we left the choice of wine to the sommelier and chose to have a glass of something different with each course. It was a great decision.
The set menus are very good and, at the lower end of the scale, are really not expensive considering that this is a Michelin starred restaurant. We have eaten off both the cheapest set menu and the intermediate one. Both have been excellent. We wouldn't bother with the A la carte menu because we've found the set menus to be so good.
The limited parking really isn't an issue for anyone staying in Collioure as the place is relatively small and is easily navigable on foot. Although not in the heart of the town, the restaurant is just a few minutes walk from the town centre.
I think that this is the best place in which I've eaten because of both the location (it really is stunning) and the quality of the food. Long may it continue!

Reviewed By Barry H - Bournemouth, United Kingdom

Ate here during an overnight trip in Collioure, on recommendation from the chambre d'hotes where we stayed. Really pleasant evening although the restaurant was not very busy (Tuesday night in early March). Service was pleasant and efficient.
My wife enjoyed the huge prawns as a starter, I had the fish soup (which was slightly thin in texture for my personal taste). The turbot and the duck as mains were both real winners. Our hostess asked us if we had the duck when we returned - clearly a favourite of hers too!

Reviewed By kelly d - wrexham,north wales

We booked in advance which I'd recommend as it got busy. We were the first ones in at 7.30 but it quickly filled up. The waitress spoke good English but we tried our bestist French. The menu as earlier noted is small but offers fish, pièce dû boucherie, can't remember the others. But the menu had changed from the last review. We shared the charcuterie plate with cheese which was lovely. The mains were very nice indeed and the wine is excellent with choice and price. I'd recommend the cafe gourmand as dessert if it offers the tarte citron as it was incredible. OH loved his choice too. Would recommend to eat here.

We enjoyed an excellent evening here. The €38 menu was super! Fresh, perfectly prepared dishes presented beautifully. Mise en bouche of cold soup to start, prawn & crab cannelloni starter, cabillaud (cod) mains, cheese or tiramisu to finish. Interesting wine card too.... all 10 of us agreed everything was great. Book & go if your in the area.
