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 JARDIN DES FILOCHE

LE JARDIN DES FILOCHE – 64 ave Jean Jaurès, 11370 Leucate 

We have tried to go to this restaurant a number of times but as we have not reserved we have had no success. On Mother’s day we however called in the morning and got a table for lunch. We were sitting in the very nice garden as the weather was warm and nice.
 
We decided to have fish as main course, which was a very good choice. My wife had back of cod and I had one of my favorites - wing of ray - that was one of the best I ever have had. It was absolutely perfect in gravy on balsamic vinegar with lots of capers. My wife’s cod was also delicious.

The restaurant have no set menus, but you can make a choice from anything on the menu, either two course starter-main or main-dessert or you can have a full three course meal of your choice. I think this is a very good idea.

The only small objections were that we had to wait 30 minutes to order, which they apologized for and that my wife who is on a special diet was promised that they should make certain changes, something they forgot about. Still they had marked especially on the menu that they were happy to do such changes. This however did not change the fact that this was a lunch to remember in a very positive way.

Leucate Village is a very picturesque village, where most buildings are very nicely renovated, which is not very common in the south of France. People down here do not really care about the outside of the buildings, but here they do. Maybe the reason is that there are a lot of people from the rest of Europe that own property and live here. Anyhow it is worth to take some time for a walk after the good meal.
