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

COCO SWEET


COCO SWEET - 4 Place Salvador Allende - 11200 Lézignan Corbières

Lezignan-Corbières does not have a lot of good restaurants. It is not too much to say that it is quite poor for a town of this size in this area. One place we have noticed and passed many times is Restaurant Coco Sweet, but has never been tempted to go in. A friend said it was good so we decided to try it.

It was a very nice experience! The first impression when we came through the door was how spacious the restaurant was and how well designed the interior areas were. It was quite full of people so we sat down and was immediately serviced by a very friendly and professional waiter.

The menu was not at all what we expected – it had a mixture of traditional dishes and more exotic food. Remarkable was their 800 grams entrecote, which must be enormous. I settled for the 300 grams version and the meat was absolutely excellent. The women had an exotic chicken-dish that was really good. The selection of local wines is good and the prizes very reasonable.

So why did we not go to this restaurant earlier? First of all it looks very small and a kind of provisional from the outside. The name of the restaurant does not make us think of a serious place that put their first interest on the food – nothing could be more wrong. Secondly they advertise themselves as “grill, glacier” that also give the wrong signals to us and finally the whole signage from the outside make you think of fast food, drinks with umbrellas and fancy ice-cream.

We are very happy to have found such a good and unprentetious restaurant within a few minutes from our home.

Report 2014: Friends have reported that the chef has left and the quality has become quite bad and so has the service.
