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.

Beautiful terrasse in the back, small seating area for before-dinner drinks out front on the banks of the Canal du Midi. Excellent quality food, especially the fish dishes. Reservation a must. Friendly staff, quick service and good pricing.

Yet again we thought we'd give it another chance - more fool us! It was a Sunday so there wasn't much else open, so we gave it a go. As usual, Madam was extremely welcoming and friendly but that was about it sadly. The food is exceedingly average and not at all good value for money. They've changed the names... More
