The restaurants recommended in this blog have all been visited by me and my wife and often with friends. We have visited them at least once. I only recommend restaurants that have a quality that, in my opinion, makes them worth a visit.
Some are world class restaurants, some are very simple, but the food is always worth the price and the chefs have prepared it with pride and love of good food.
The food is essential for being mentioned here. Minor problems when it comes to service and other things are mentioned but does not disqualify them from being recommended.
We have also eaten in some restaurants in the area that do not leave any memories worth writing about.
Finally we have been to very few bad restaurants and have been badly serviced in a few.
These three categories are marked differently in List of Restaurants.
marks our special restaurants. On the map they are found by the red marks and in the search term list under coup de ceur

BRASSERIE L & L

BRASSERIE L & L - Boulevard de la Corderie, 11430 Gruissan


Brasserie L&L is not a fancy restaurant but we have always got very good food there and the service is friendly and professional. L&L is one of the many restaurants in the port of Gruissan and besides having a good kitchen it is mostly open all year around.  We can recommend their grilled fish which always has been very good. As almost every restaurant in this area they serve really good local wine. It might help that they are located across the street from Cave de Gruissan.

The restaurant is located on the canal with a very nice view. If you are interested in boats that you cannot afford to buy, this is the place to walk around and envy. You can however rent a monster sailing boat just around the corner if you like.

Revisited 2013: As the first summer sun was warm enough we decided to sit outside in end of May. The food was as always good, but the young waitress thought that rush was the same as being professional, this was a bit annoying. She did not have time to listen to our order in a relaxed way. It was not that many people to serve!

Revisited November 2015: We have not been here for a while. Today it was 25 degrees Celsius so it was warm to sit in the sun - lovely. But - the food was a disappointment. I love ray so that was my choice. My wife had a Caesar salad - she thought. We have learned that Caesar salads comes in many variations, but one thing is always important - the special dressing. The only sauce here was a few drops of balsamic vinegar. I am tired of chefs who thinks anything turns into gourmet food with a few drops of balsamic. My ray was too ambitious. I like it natural  with capers - this was taken off the bones and drowned in sauce.

Revisited May 2016: As always the food was good and the service friendly. I had one of my favorites - wing of ray. It was the biggest I have ever had, so I could only finish half of it. We had our coffee on the deck outside and suddenly my wife's chair collapsed. The leg was cut off. She hurt herself but it could have been worse. We would have expected more concern from the restaurant, but they just said they have an insurance and we should tell if she got problems.

Revisited July 2016: This was the first time we visited the restaurant in the evening. Very nice and extremely quick service. The food was as always good.

Revisited July 2017: A problem for us who live here all year is that some restaurants lower their ambitions in the summer as they think the customers will never return as they are tourists. That might be why the food we were served the other day was everything but acceptable. The good thing was that they did not charge us for the food when we pointed at the bad quality.
On the other hand - if I had read my own review from November 2015 I would have known that Caesar sallad and wing of ray was not a good idea.
