Lunchtime opening : Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday
Evening service: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday
Playing with the history of the place, marrying the mineral with the organic, finding the ancestral traces of the waggons, highlighting the Eiffel framework, planting a tree and turning an old press room into a restaurant. Outside, on the terrace in the shade of an olive tree, one can linger and taste wines from here and elsewhere, in harmony with the gastronomic poetry of Julien...
Combining gastronomy, ethics and deliciousness.
Between land and sea, in this sun-drenched and partly still preserved nature, Julien Montassié reinvents a sensory game of forgotten flavours combining the classics with the unexpected. A succession of impressionist paintings brightened up with vegetal touches, a return to the origins on the tracks of the snail.
Different formats are available.
Let yourself be surprised! The head waiter will come and meet you to find out your preferences and intolerances... Once all these elements have been gathered, our Chef and his team will concoct a menu according to the seasons!
As part of our ethical and eco-responsible approach, we offer seasonal dishes in the form of surprise meals. If you have an allergy, a particular intolerance or a specific diet (vegan, vegetarian), please contact the reception to personalise your stay.
OPENING: coming up again in June 2024
A concept which, both in name and form, is inspired by the snail, the small animal emblematic of Domaine Riberach****. Located on the covered terrace overlooking the vineyards, this pop-up restaurant offers a welcoming industrial atmosphere. Its up-cycled decorative elements create a raw, elegant and contemporary space. In the spirit of sharing, the "Cargol'21" restaurant creates a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a dinner or simply: a drink!
A combination of different types of meat and fish grilled over charcoal, served alongside seasonal produce, all from the Catalan region, thus favouring short circuits and a locavore approach. Simple, quality dishes in a "starter, main course and dessert" menu at €39,00, to be enjoyed in a convivial atmosphere! The wine list highlights the Riberach production from several vintages, accompanying this local cuisine. Gastropodically yours....
The Comptoir Cave
Daily menu - €29.00 from Sunday evening to Wednesday lunchtime.
The friendly and relaxed place!
The "Comptoir-Cave" bistro is a relaxed alternative for snacking. A beautiful place where you can enjoy a platter of cold cuts and cheeses, accompanied by a selection of local wines and beers.
A local bistro, where you can choose from the blackboard and enjoy your meal on the terrace or at the large counter, like a guest table. Vintages from about thirty local winegrowers, all organic, biodynamic or like us, bio-natural. All selected́ with rigour, according to the desires of the moment in continuity with our wine commitments.
Don't miss: the visits of the cellar proposed every day on reservation followed by a tasting of the emblematic wines of the domain...
Price: 10 € per person
The Lounge Terrace
Coming up again starting June 2023!
Fancy a cocktail? A snack? An aperitif?
Our lounge terrace with a view of the vineyards is the ideal spot to enjoy a breath of fresh air under the rays of a setting sun. Nibbling and lazing around to be enjoyed without moderation...
Natural gastronomy by Julien Montassié
Julien Montassié, who trained with Michel Troisgros, Gilles Goujon and Laurent Lemal, has taken over as Executive Chef of the Domaine Riberach restaurants****. Previously head chef at "Host et Vinum", he was also Laurent Lemal's right-hand man for three years in the kitchens of Domaine Riberach****. For Julien, it's a real return to his roots, both literally and figuratively!
At Riberach, we defend a certain idea of "Slow food" cuisine: fluid, structured and gourmet, the cuisine at our place vibrates, according to the seasons, the market and the desires of the moment. In a constant search for fresh local products, km 0 is our motto. This terroir is revealed and appreciated in a succession of dishes with flavours that announce themselves, respond or jostle each other...
The chef and his team combine expertise and simplicity, accuracy and precision, modernity and tradition. Their aim is to rediscover the original meaning of the product, to work on it, respect it, and magnify it, while ensuring that the notion of sharing is never lost!
"Instinct, respect, impulse, encounter, deliciousness...
Friendly cuisine and a contemporary vision, instinctive, evolving, gourmet and lively: local produce served on a plate".
"The ever-changing menu is a tribute to all the small producers in the area and the confidence we have in them."Executive Chef Julien Montassié
