Restaurant Casa Comaulis

Reviewed By thevalentinecoach

Friends and I visiting from San Francisco California really enjoyed our meal at Restaurant Casa Comaulis. Francisco the chef comes right to your table and describes the specialties and makes recommendations. He is friendly and funny and is clearly passionate...and not a surprise if shows in the meal. The food is delicious! Try whatever he recommends...everything is prepared well. the resarurant is clean and has a nice atmosphere. You can even stay at the hostel nearby.

I had the cuisine maison consisting of salade catalane to start which was a fresh, tasty anchovy salad followed by morue a l'aioli. The fish was perfectly cooked and the vegetables were an excellent accompaniment. My wife definitely enjoyed her food too.Would recommend.

We were in Sant Llorenc de la Muga (a wonderfully tranquil setting in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the Costa Brava) for 5 nights in July. Whilst there, we were recommended to try the food of a young chef named David at L'hostal de l'aigua, Sant Llorenc de la Muga. From the moment he spoke to us to describe some of the dishes on and off his menu, it was clear that he was very passionate about his food and the courses that we were served after that were simply exquisite. Make no mistake, David is a chef and not just a cook.A small shot of refreshing melon soup followed by a starter of salad with goat's cheese cooked in filo pastry set the tone for our first meal. This was followed by the most tender and succulent duck confit garnished with thin fried potato shavings and a perfect accompaniment of pear chutney. The meat literally fell off the bones. David, who is a charming and friendly host as well, also served us a jug of excellent sangria using a recipe inherited from his father. We ate at L'hostal de l'aigua twice and each time the bill for two including 1 starter, 2 main courses and a jug of sangria was in the region of 40 Euro which was exceptional value for the quality of dining experience that we received.If you are ever in Sant Llorenc de La Muga, you must make time to sample the food of this brilliant chef and once you have, you will keep coming back for more..

We were in Ceret visiting the art museum and doing our laundry. We saw this little gem down the street. It filled up fast and we soon knew we had scored. There are plenty of menu options and my husband and I each had the fish plat. Both were different...mine was lieu jaune with pesto and glass noodles. It was amazing, as was my husband’s fish with shrimp on top. The dishes that came out of the kitchen were works of art...salads, plats, entrees, and desserts. The prices were reasonable and the service was fantastic. And what a pretty little spot with all things garden as decor. Don’t miss this little gem if you are in Ceret.

Restaurant La Galerie

Reviewed By drobo12000

I visited during the summer on the recommendation of friends. It is good to have another restaurant in Ceret that is a little off the beaten track and was expecting something special. Firstly i would say the service was excellent as was the wine. Not so good, bland starters and only one of the fish dishes we had was any good. Our bill seemed to creep up to the high side for what we had.

We actually live only about 40 minutes' drive from Maçanet de Cabrenys, a tiny Pyrenean village just over the border from our French village into Spain. Maçanet is a lovely, lively village, with a great old-fashioned Spanish-style café and a beautiful medieval church. Surrounding scenery is gorgeous. La Quadra is a hotel-restaurant in the heart of the village, which, despite its remoteness and its small size, boasts at least a half-dozen eating places. Yesterday was a gorgeous early fall day, so we made a special trip to Maçanet to try La Quadra out. And we're happy we did! You have the choice of a prix fixe menu at about €21, with plenty of choice for each course. Or you can have the so-called tasting menu for €27, where, after a little amuse-bouche, there are fixed starters of cod carpaccio followed by seafood cannelloni. From there, one passes to a main course to be chosen among maigret de canard, roast lamb shoulder, grilled sirloin, and a hake casserole with prawns, squid, calamari, and mussels. We both chose the last. And finally, there is a big choice of desserts, including pears baked in coffee, which we chose, along with a plate featuring small portions of four of the restaurant's classic desserts. Service was excellent, rapid, attentive, but not obsequious or too fast. The restaurant filled up, surprising at a Tuesday lunch, but evidence of the restaurant's reputation, given that it is not on anyone's way to anywhere. In retrospect, I wish we had taken the daily menu at €21. I found the fish cannelloni and the seafood "casserole" to be too similar, all in a predicable if good tomato-based sauce. This is a very fine village restaurant but not a spectacular restaurant, based on our meal choices. Next time -- and there will be a next time very soon -- I want to pick and choose among the starter and main course offerings, to give myself more variety and the restaurant more opportunity to excel. Some of the offerings made my mouth water: casserole of escargots; courgettes stuffed with Roquefort in a mushroom sauce; stewed cuttlefish with meat balls; baked veal cheek with mushrooms; and several others. House wine was drinkable, setting pleasant, table linens perhaps too informal. Opening hours adjusted for the French clientele over the border, with lunch beginning as early as 1230, with the Spaniards and Catalans arriving after 130. Dinner begins at 730pm. A very very good experience overall, to be repeated.Thank you very much for taking some of your time and sharing your opinion. We appreciate very much your positive comments.We all look forward to welcoming you back to Maçanet and to our Restaurant La Quadra in the near future. Joan and joana
