“Disappointing. Don't order the fondue.”

My first time to Font Romeu and I was hoping for an exciting fondue with the boyfriend. Sadly it was a disappointment at best. The others in our group ordered beautiful pizzas if lacking flavour and local dishes. However the fondue arrived cold. The bread was obviously old and it lacked all flavour! It seemed as though the salad was the best bit for us.
In addition, all meals arrived at different times, leaving all parties to wait for others to finish.
The only reason this review hasn't received less is because the pizzas looked delicious, even if they weren't, and the lemon meringue pie was delicious.
So I would suggest find somewhere else for fondue, as it is a complete and utter waste of money.

We’ve eaten here every time we come to font Romeu and the fondue has never failed to impress. Great staff although the man behind the bar (I assume the owner) was not very friendly when, on one occasion due to a delayed flight, half our party didn’t make it in time (despite the fact that they immediately filled the tables). This week we had some steaks instead and they cut like butter, served with beautiful sauces. No salad or veg which was a disappointing and only a few chips, but the quality of the meat was excellent.

Our first night out in Font-Romeu and we’d forgotten to book anywhere. Although it was still early at 7pm, the restaurant was fully booked. Looking at my tired kids and the look of despair on my face at the thought of not being able to eat, the manager quickly explained that if we would order and eat quickly, he could fit us in.
We did as we were told and weren’t disappointed. The kids’ pizzas and spaghetti were great, my snails were awesome, and the service was spot on.

Salade Nicoise with tinned tuna and tinned beans at the height of summer!! Salad was poor with tasteless tomatoes which takes some doing in France

Stopped off at Font Romeu for lunch after catching le Petit Train Jaune from Villefranche. After a 20 min hike up from the station in hot May sunshine we reached the centre. Alas we found no restaurants open! In desperation we popped into the Gendarmerie who advised us to try Le Cellier. A great find. Sitting outside on the sun trap terrace, we had superb pizzas and a Salade verte between us which was enormous, plus a very generous assiette de frites, which was much more than two of us could handle. To top it off a few bottles of Estrella which made for a relaxing trip back through the mountains on the fantastic value 1€ bus. Would return.
