Save yourselves! Utterly appalling service. Ordered a bottle of Viognier, waiter brought out a bottle of Chardonnay and seemed disappointed when I noticed and he had to tell me that was all they had. One starter arrived once everyone else had finished; one main arrived when everyone else had finished. My spoon arrived after my ice cream had melted. Seafood related dishes actually alright, but chicken a la chef was like a cheap chow mien. Save your cash!

You have to know where to go in Palavas to have a good meal. At lunchtime, if you want to stay around the beach side of the canal, you either have to spend a fair bit of money (20€+ for a main) or have a snack. A lot of places are touristy traps with overpriced "plats du jour" etc.

In that context, the New Port was a good solution. I wouldn't go there in the evening nor for a nice meal. I wouldn't go for the a la carte option as it's pretty obvious they won't do nice dishes.

But their lunch menu (available all week except Sunday and bank holidays) at 16€ is ok. I'm not sure ingredients are fresh and a few might be from frozen. But it tastes decent, service is quick and friendly, and the three course meal is half the price of the mains on the beach/canal.

We had the "chèvre chaud" starter which is what it says on the menu, three toasts with melted goat cheese on top of a dressed salad. Nothing to write home about but I like melted goat cheese and the salad was refreshing. Fine.
Then I had the saumon a la plancha while my husband had the daurade. Both came with rice and nice sautéed vegetables. Again, fine. The fish wasn't the tastiest and I suspect it might have been from frozen (which indeed is a shame so close to the sea but not surprising for the price) but as a main it tasted ok. Salmon had maybe a bit too much olive oil on top but that's a detail. We had île flottante as dessert. It strangely came in a glass and I don't think the custard was homemade but again it was fine.

Basically, I wouldn't go there on purpose or ever go a la carte. But if you're hungry and are looking for a cheap and ok option, you should be fine here.

Menu seems rich, but actually tasteless food, waitress place settings right on dirty tables.
Very bad management.
You will never return here.

It is quite expensive because of the nice central location but menus give a good idea of local food and are affordable.
I piatti a la carte sono costosi ma i menu danno una buona idea della cucina locale e sono abbordabili.
Qualità medio Buona.
