Dining

In the villages and cities close to L'abri la Vall there are many picturesque restaurants in all price classes. The cuisine is Catalan and for the most part dominated by produce from sea and the mountains, such as fish, crustaceans, cheese, lamb, wild boar, vinaigre and olive oil. In southern France the influences from northern Africa and Italy are tangible. Among the other things that characterize the Catalan kitchen are rich stews, aïoli, anchoïde (a dip made of anchovies and garlic) and crème catalane..
The deep harbour in the neighboring village Port Vendres is where all the fresh fish arrives and is sold at the local fish market. Those who want may savor some of the delicacies, such as freshly opened oysters with a cool, local wine.
