We've missed le 5eme Peché in Collioure this year. They have moved from rented premises to their own place, but the work has taken a year. Masashi's fresh, complex take on French and Japanese cuisine is unique in this region, and we welcome its return.
The new restaurant is stylish and modern, with a great big open kitchen (with bar seats looking right in) and lots of wood and stone. Its not much bigger than the old one, but there is more room per table, and everything is a lot more stylish.
The chef has done a couple of stints at Guy Savoy and Can Roca in between to keep his hand in, and the fabulous food shows his great ambitions. The fish is fresh and of the highest quality, and the dishes show a lot of imagination. Seasonal produce features heavily, and it is great value at 37€ for the 3 course dinner.
The wine list has the cream of the Roussillon crop and is served at perfect temperature.
Overall, the 100% Japanese team front of house and in the kitchen is reassuring somehow, and they are producing the most inventive and compelling food in the area at the moment.
