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.

Very Good & Great Location by Canal

After a couple of Belgian Leffe draught beers looking over the Canal du Midi, a group of 6 of us had dinner in the courtyard and nobody was disappointed with the food. House wine was also very good and great value at E13.60 for a litre. Recommended

One of the best meals we had in France. The service and food were superb. The restaurant was recommended to us by a local couple and we were not disappointed. The food, location and atmosphere were wonderful. The food is southern France kicks Paris! Located right on the canal du Midi makes it a beautiful setting and convenient. Homps is... More

Turned up for Tuesday lunch. Great fish soup, scallops and average cuttlefish. Staff forgot water and bread and owner seemed distant and uninterested. Gets trade purely because of location. Has lost its lustre..go elsewhere.

My wife and I have eaten here several times over the past 7 years and have had no complaints. Just recently we showed up on a Saturday evening with no reservation and got right in. The Mme was able to take our orders in English. I started with Salmon Ceviche salad and had a beef entree and my wife had... More

We've visited La Peniche on several occasions ver the last 9 or so years - mainly in the early years when the fare was 'new'. Of late though we've not been back since the menu never seems to change. We did give them another go in June however. The staff, particularly Mm and Mme are always pleasant and welcoming, but... More

Had a great meal great staff only to be spoilt by the owner chasing us down the street accusing us of not paying - maybe he should have checked with his lovely wife before making a fool of himself and embarrassing us

Had an awful meal here last night. Terrible rushed service and dinner almost thrown at us! Food was very mediocre certainly not special. We were treating some friends and came away embarrassed. To top it all they tried to charge us twenty odd euros for someone else's drinks. Well spotted me. No tip left Martyn Sykes

We happened to come across this restaurant by chance. The restaurant is situated on the banks of the canal midi. It was our last night and was definitely one of the best meals we have experienced in France. We sat in the warm sunshine having a aperitif.We booked a table and went to the garden area .

Located on the edge of the Canal u Midi, this is a place where you could spend quite a bit of time. Restaurant is in garden at rere. We visited twice and on both occasions found the staff very pleasant and helpful. Our coeliac was well attended very well. The food was good quality, plentiful and tasty.
