Best restaurants in South France to visit in 2020

La Taverne de Port, Marseiilan restaurant, Languedoc

x taverne du portNow I have never been here and the main reason forthis is that whenever I go past La Taverne de Port, it is always jammed full (always a good sign). It is only a small place, but the atmoosphere looks good. The menu seems to lean towards fish and shellfish (which makes sense given you are sitting on the edge of the best oyster and mussel producing lake in France). Also, people we know in Marseillan say that you can always get a good bottle of wine here.

La Taverne de Port is located at 32 Quai Atonin Gros. It is advisable to book ahead if you are planning to go there for an evening meal (Tel: +33 (0)4 67 01 78 78, Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

L'Auberge du Presbytere, Languedoc restaurant

x presbytere finL'Auberge du Presbytere, Languedoc restaurant, has one of the most amazing views. It is located on a rocky outcrop in the hills above Roujan. The local village is called Vailhan and we often go here to swim in the lake that is below the village. We have also been to a Music Festival in the village (a very drunken night). It is a sleepy sort of village and you do need a map and compass to find it (it is about 5kms along country roads out of the back of Roujan). We took two of our sons here, just before I was going away on a work contract. It was the middle of August, the sun was shining and we were sat outside having fantastic food.

Le Chateau du Port, Marseillan restaurant, Languedoc

x chateau du port

Friends bought us a meal at La Chateau du Port as a joint birthday gift. It was a few years back when we were really struggling for money whilst we were building up the website, so it was very much appreciated. I cannot remember much about it, other than the wine was extremely good and the food was a good standard, (but without being spectacular). The inside is very chic and it is located overlooking the port (on the quieter right side). We have friends who always go there and they say that they have never had a bad meal yet.

La Chateua du Port restaurant, Marseillan is located at 9 Quai de la Résistance. For reservations: Tel: +33 (0)4 67 77 31 67; Web: www.le-chateau-du-port.com).
