Collioure is a lovely well-preserved French mediterranean town. I was there this past August with my daughter Maya (although I do not recommend that you go in August because it's too crowded - perhaps it's better to go off season)
and, there are lots of restaurants and lovely historical things to see - as you will see...
Mist, melting ice cream, some cute little boats, and a Vaubon castle all in the same photo! We got the ice cream here:
I have never seen ice cream displayed this way before, someone took a lot of time finding all the little toys and special things for the display and it was good - here's another one in case we've missed something:
Collioure is also really famous for anchovies and so of course we ate some:
And we had some fish and things:
We also tried the tapas which of course included anchovies:
Collioure is right close to the French border with Spain and so their food habits are perhaps very Spanish - I had never eaten these long thin shellfish before - in French they are called couteaux (knives) and they are very good!
Maya is always on a diet so she had a particularly lovely salad:
And I'm too old for diets so I had the pizza:
The pizza was really nice! and now that you've seen what we ate here are some pics of where we ate it - after one more nice food photo, of course:
If possible you should eat here on the beach:
This is what the inside looks like- very colorful:
So from Collioure, this is Emily signing off
Happy lunching, always and forever...
