Restaurant Le St. Raph

One of our favorite  rustic family restaurant in Vives, Perpignan.

While staying at my sister's summer home in Vives, our favorite rustic family restaurant was just down the road. They don't have a website so this is when mine becomes useful to you. 

They  serve tender magret de canard, juicy steaks perfectly prepared to your liking, fresh anchovies on salads or freshly baked baguettes served with roasted bell peppers, grilled mouth-watering jumbo shrimps to name a few. It is situated beside a calming lake where kids can run around and play with the beavers. There is a small bistro beside it which they also own and they serve hamburgers and crispy pomme frites.

Both kids and adults love it.
Le Ralph's. This is our kind of family restaurant.
Casual and outdoors by a lake and serves excellent meals.

agneau stew. The meat falls of the bone, so tender and delicious.

Perpignan is famous for its fresh anchovies and sardines.

One of my fave entree.
magret du canard. Cooked with the fat on.
The red meat was bursting with flavor.

potato with cheese gratin.
Perfect accompaniment for our main course.
this is how I want my steak.
Medium rare but not bloody. 
Gambas. I kept coming back for this. It was so tasty.

I guess we skipped dessert cuz we were all full.

We did take a walk along the lake and played with the beavers before heading home.
