We got great food and a very friendly welcome. The restaurant was only open on certain days in the week (low season, october), but we had a very lovely evening.

Unfortunately the restauranteurs have moved to Ceret. They will be very sorely missed as they served excellent,fresh food cooked by Serge & served by his wife Micheline. Together they made this place a great dining experience. Montferrer,s loss will be Ceret,s gain, along with lots of friends we will certainly be making the trip to Ceret to sample their wonderful...

Very sad to see our wonderful restaurateurs leave the village of Montferrer .For 3 years they have consistently served good fresh produce and always accommodated guests with charm and hospitality . We will miss them greatly and a loss to the tourism of Montferrer . Wishing them all success with their new venture in Ceret --we will all be there... More

Very impressed by our first visit to this charming restaurant, so much so we returned days later. Fantastic welcome, service and food. Small menu but beautifully presented and so tasty. Reservations only as food is bought daily. We have already made our next reservation. A little gem and definitely worth a visit.

The welcome is warm and genuine as you enter this charming little mountain restaurant. Although the menu is small, it is well balanced and the wines though limited are suitable. This is a well run , great value bistro

Quaint and friendly little restaurant that offers quality, locally sourced produce which Serge prepares beautifully. Good value and certainly worth a visit if you are in the area, be sure to make reservations.

This was a charming and tasty experience in a beautiful setting. The owner/chefs were gracious and used all local fresh ingredients. They were very happy to share their love of food with us. My husband had a lamb dish that he thought was excellent and my fish was cooked in the most delicate sauce. We loved it and highly recommend... More

As other reviewers have said, this is a bit lost in the mountains, but is worth a detour. The food is excellently presented, and very tasty. Choice is understandably limited, but don't let that worry you. Tonight's menu was either a seafood tartare (a tasty mixture of raw fish accompanied by different salads and purees) or millefeuille with chicken, apple... More
