Beaujolais nouveau and live music
Excerpt from ‘My Life in the P-O: online diary 2011
We finally made it to the new wine bar, Can Vicens, in Saint Jean Pla de Corts and had a lovely evening. It’s an old wine cellar, where that excellent restaurant ‘Les Feuillants’ in Céret used to store its wine before it closed. It has been really tastefully converted, retaining all the original features, with low, vaulted ceilings and cayrou stone walls, immaculately clean and very comfortable, with cushty leather arm chairs and settees clustered around low tables.
Family run, the service is friendly and discrete and even Olivier liked it, which says a lot as he is such a bear! There is no proper kitchen, so they only do tapas, but as you can see from the selection that we had, it was all very nice – beautifully presented and very good quality. Sometimes, it is enough to have substantial nibbles, decent wine and good company, without bothering with a restaurant.
