Halfway between Beziers and Carcassonne, Homps is a small village along the road Minervoise. You must enter the village you find along the Canal du Midi and see the port and seaside atmosphere you will be immediately attracted to our terrace at the water's edge and little blue chairs that invite you to relax. Feel free to come: after crossing the room, you will find at the back, the charm of the shady garden, sheltered from all winds where you can sample our cuisine and our wood-fired pizzas. The friendly atmosphere you will enjoy a warm and relaxed.

Great coffee right beside the Canal du Midi! Family run restaurant which was great for coffee and sent us round the corner to the store for croissants when we asked for a breakfast menu! We think the store is also owned by the same family but they served us coffee with our shop-bought croissants & jam.... Lovely looking restaurant behind... More

We found this restaurant last week in Homps and liked it so much we finished up eating there most of the week (in fact the last meal we had there was only two days ago!). Great quality food in a very relaxing garden, served by friendly and welcoming staff. Well worth a visit if you find yourself in this lovely... More

We've been here a couple of times before when boating on canal with friends and enjoyed the food and atmosphere of the lovely courtyard eating area. Although not boating this year, we were staying in area so came here for our anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. Good food, excellent value, friendly staff and efficient service. Apart from the courtyard... More

We originally wanted a snack near the Cabal du Midi and stumbled into Homps. We were shown into the garden at the rear and immediately decided that we wanted the rear3 course plat du jour. This was an unexpected treat, especially as it was my birthday. Both food and service were very good and there was a great atmosphere.

Sit outside if you visit this place. Only popped in for an ice cream and a drink... Ended up staying a while due to the wonderful view of the Canal di Midi

Service was excellent, the garden cool and shady. My choice of pizza was not a good one. Typical French flabby version. Husband's 3 course lunch was good. Fish soup not too salty. Main course salmon etc correctly cooked. Dessert of tarte aux pommes a little stale. Good Illy coffee.

We loved this restaurant for providing us with an authentic French feel that we have come to yearn for when back in Blighty. The garden at the back is a lovely setting for your meal and you do get the feeling that you are in a French family run restaurant. We had been trying to escape the prominent English influence...

The food was delicious and the atmosphere in the garden was lovely. But there was so many flies!! They seemed to love the food as much as we did. The food was also great value for the quality. Waiting staff were very polite and friendly.
