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 JEAN


LE JEAN – 1, rue de la Tonnellerie, 66000 Perpignan

This restaurant might be hard to find. When you enter Rue de la Tonnellerie it looks like a street you do not want to be on at night and you see no sight of a restaurant. It is there and you see it when you are in front of the entrance. The entrance is a bit weird though. Well inside you find the decoration very interesting, humorous and welcoming. It is actually an old cork-factory and they have kept the industrial atmosphere mixed with interesting modern artifacts. They also have an outside covered garden.
Even if you do not have to you should visit the rest-rooms - it is worth seeing.

The food is good, not fancy but the kind you come back for with friends and have a good time. The starter with different kinds of local "charcuteries" was very good and so was my grilled chicken that I had for main course. 

The service is nice and observant. My wife had been there a couple of times with a friend without me and was treated like a well known customer.

LATEST VISIT: 2013
NUMBER OF VISITS: 3
