Grabbed dinner here while stopped over at a local hotel on the way to Spain. Service was super fast. The steaks were cooked perfectly... reason I gave a 4 was both mine and my gfs chips were a bit cold... but on the whole decent food for the money.

We stopped in Perpignan on our way back from Spain. That was the last day of our journey so we decided to celebrate a successful end. It was already late and we found this restaurant for dinner. Maybe it was due to our warm feelings, but that was one of the best dinners of the whole journey. Excellent food, super... More

The restaurant was very handy, walking distance to the Perpignan Kyriad Hotel, and so we decided to give it a go. The waiter spoke perfect English and helped us with our menu. Once we had made our decision as to what to eat, we asked the waiter to bring us a bottle of local wine. The meals came quickly, and... More

After a long journey on France's holiday clogged motorways a good meal and a chance to relax is eagerly looked for. The hippopotamus was therefore a great find. Reaonably priced, great meat ( cote de bouef) cooked to perfection excellent service. All in all much enjoyed and would return.

This is a very good steak/burger house, a lovely treat to find and the burgers were cooked well done as we had requested. There was a special on the kids meals and we got 3 for the price of 1, which included a drink, a main course (nuggets & chips), and a dessert. A glass of wine and a pint... More

We enjoyed the break fom French restaurants with our teenagers who wanted some easy comfort food, for a change. I agree with all the positives of previous reviews, except our meat experiences were all disappointing. The racks of ribs were two huge slabs of rather fatty, gristly meat with only one small bone. This was not a rack of ribs.... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times during our stays in Perpignan and were never disappointed. Food: excellent all in taste, quality and presentation. Generous portions. Tasty food.
