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

LE GRAND LARGE


LE GRAND LARGE - Avenue pasteur prolongé, 34560 Balaruc les Bains

Le Grand Large is one of our favorites in Balaruc les Bains. This is a place to go for high quality fish and seafood. As it is a restaurant of certain style, fantastic food and situated with a view over Bassin de Thau it is a restaurant for special occasions. Do not  misunderstand me – it is not expensive, just very good value, nice food, friendly service and a very nice atmosphere. The seafood platters are enormous and the fish is always fresh, but do not hesitate to order meat – it is perfect. My absolute favorite here is beef Carpaccio, which is the absolutely best I have ever eaten. My wife though is very fond of the cutlet fish with a creamy “sauce a la bourride”.

The same owner have a twin restaurant next door, Saint Louis, which has a more gourmet style and Le Grand Large is of a more traditional style.

Revisited in September 2012: As always very good and not expensive. I again had the fantastic beef carpaccio and this time we all had the traditional dish Bourride de baudroie as main course. It was a fantastic warm and nice day with a nice view over Etang de Thau.

Revisited in December 2015: Absolutely delicious. We celebrated that our good friend can walk with crutches after many weeks in a wheel-chair.
