La CÔte Vermeille Port-Vendres Reviews
A reliable restaurant on the Vermilion coast near the Spain border Jul 31, 2010
As there is no more any reliable restaurant in Banyuls sur mer(the Littorine's cuisine is too inconstant),we drove to the neighbouring village of Port-Vendres(called by the Romans after Venus goddess),one of the few deep-water port in this part of the Mediterranean sea to discover at dinner the new terrace of La Côte Vermeille built last year by the Bessière brothers.
This terrace that may be windy is more laid-back and offers less choice than the traditional underneath seafood restaurant.
After a local beer from the Cap d'Ona brewery dedicated to my friends Christian and Francis,we had a nice and generous lobster salad seasoned with truffled balsamic vinegar(18 euro)then monkfish à la plancha for Danielle(19 euro) and tender squids à la plancha for me(16 euro)washed down with a glass of local white wine(3,5 euro).
We didn't have dessert.
The 3 courses menu of the day(24 euro but 19,50 for lunch) offered scallop stuffed squid,cod seasoned with chorizo and an apricot tart.
We'll come back!
