“Delicious food and friendly service”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Dinner at Cap de Castel is a must every time we visit the region! We have dined here in summer, winter and spring, and it has been a wonderful experience every time. In summer, you have a gorgeous view from the terrace; in winter, there is a cozy log fire inside. Chef Xavier's menus are based solely on fresh, local ingredients and change every season. His dishes are rooted in French cuisine but incorporate sophisticated, international flavors that make this restaurant stand out from the rest. The manager, David, is a welcoming and friendly host who speaks perfect English, French and Spanish. He will guide you through the menu and wine list and ensure the food is cooked to your liking, without any of the arrogance we sadly sometimes still encounter in this country. Prices range from € 29 for the three course menu of the day, to € 49 for an a la carte menu. As an aperitif we can recommend the sparkling wine 'coupe methode gaillacoise'. For red wine, try the locally produced "Tu t'rapel".

Ate here twice on a recent visit to the hotel . You will need to book , even if you are staying in the hotel , as it gets very busy with locals which is a compliment in itself. How on earth this place can get any negative comment about its food is beyond me. Alright , cheap it isn't but surely you are aware of pricing before booking.........having said that the food is of such fine quality that it is still worth the experience. The friendly owners are truly passionate about their cuisine and it shows in delivery - based largely on excellent local produce together with lovely local wines. Good service from friendly staff too. The food is truly scrumptious ..... truly truly scrumptious !!! Highly recommended.

“Exceptional service and food”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

We chose this restaurant to celebrate my husbands 70th Birthday and not only was the food exceptionally good but the true professionallism from the maitre'd and young staff made this a once in a lifetime evening. As we were away from home in New Zealand we were made to feel extra special. As I was unfamiliar with local wines once again this was taken care of from a superb wine cellar.
