Our partner restaurants
If you are looking for an exceptional culinary experience during your stay in La Clape, we invite you to discover our partner restaurants in our region. Our restaurants are run by talented chefs who make a point of using the best local ingredients and highlighting local products.
Le petit comptoir
Fine dining based on Mediterranean flavours, in a 1930’s style bistrot setting. Very extensive regional wine list.
La table Saint-Crescent
Hidden inside a former twelfth-century oratory, is the Michelin-starred Table Saint-Crescent. Lionel Giraud, who did his apprenticeship at the Crillon and the Ritz offers an inventive and refined style of cooking, based on fresh farm produce. The young chef adapts his dishes according to the season. This guarantees that the ingredients are always top quality and he can offer gastronomic menus from 25€. Lionel’s partner, Marie, introduces gourmets to the pleasures of the local wines, including those of La Clape, to which she is particularly partial. While the menu changes every three months, certain signature dishes remain: the cube of foie gras from the Landes, celeriac purée with truffle, chicken stuffed with foie gras, quintessence of parmesan. For dessert, let yourself be tempted by a vacherin of wild strawberries with basil ice cream. A delight for your taste buds.
Les halles de Narbonne
A must-see is the covered market “les Halles”, which remains very popular with the locals. Good food guaranteed.
In this Baltard-style pavilion you will find seventy stallholders and producers. It is also the largest source of fresh produce in the town. You will find all the local specialties: tripe “à la mode narbonnaise”, authentic cassoulet from Castelnaudary, free-range Lauragais chickens, “pélardons” goats’ cheese from the Corbières, Lucques olives from Bize, oil from Portel and Sigean, honey from Montredon, Anita’s jams from la Palme, ancestral “galettes narbonnaises”. And of course, from the five fishmongers you can get oysters from Leucate and just as juicy, those from Gruissan, as well as local wines, like those from La Clape.
La cambuse du saunier
In the exceptional environment of the salt beds of the Ile Saint Martin, which stretch over 400 hectares on the edge of the village of Gruissan, this restaurant offers you a taste of the famous island oysters, which are brought in each day by the local fishermen. Let yourself be tempted also by the fish and meat baked in sea salt, the cassoulet of squid and pan-fried seafood. Don’t forget to try the tasty ewes-milk ice cream with sea salt too! On the wine front, those of La Clape pair beautifully with this Mediterranean-style cooking.
When you go through the door of this ancient building, which was once the presbytery of Gruissan, you enter a warm and friendly atmosphere. La Cranquette is a place of shared pleasure, offering local, seasonal ingredients. Specializing in wild fish and seafood, chef Julien Privat is self-taught. Passionate about cooking, he opened La Cranquette at the age of twenty-four. He marries together surprising flavours, in a cooking style which is both modern and bold in taste. Just perusing the menu on the wall is a real pleasure! The menu changes weekly and the wine list is one of the most varied and interesting in La Clape.
La table vigneronne d’Olivier Calix
Recently opened, Olivier Calix serves dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening. It is an opportunity to taste a lovely selection of his wines, served with local produce, all in a relaxed and friendly environment chez the wine-maker!
