Great little find

Despite the fact that this was the only restaurant open on a Monday we would most definitely go back. Very friendly service & delicious food. To top it off they serve Illy coffee. We had our morning coffee on the canal side &, a bit later, lunch in their lovely garden at the back of the restaurant.

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

Ideal location if on the Canal du Midi but worth the trip to Homps if travelling by road. Anne and Alain Maurel pay attention to detail and provide great service and food with emphasis on the regional produce and dishes with excellent local wines. We had a delightful lunch and we were disappointed that our itinerary would not permit a... More

Stopped by on a boat and it was the only restaurant open on Monday, but it was fabulous. Really nice food, friendly service all put together with style. Menus in this area of France tend to be similar with quality being the differentiation and this was lovely - top of the list. Poire Belle Helene superb.

What a great find. We were on a boat and we docked looking for a place to have a beer. One of our travelers need a prescription filled and asked about where a pharmacy was. 15 minutes away in another village. As we had no transportation, the pastry chef of the restaurant volunteered to drive our friend to the pharmacy.... More

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.

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
