Always excellent service, food is good, location is great, many a happy meal here!

The place to eat in Narbonne for reasonably priced food, with excellent service. We are always recognised by the staff and welcomed, the outside is lovely, sitting on the sunny side of the canal watching the world go by, so much better since they closed the road and made the promenade much wider.

Called in at lunchtime. We both had spinach lasagne, very bland. We didn't finish it. The level of noise was unpleasant and overwhelming, and with the tables squeezed closely together we would have been party to a number of loud conversations had our French been better.

By chance,this evening just wandering...we came across the staff eating and laughing together. Just knew we had to eat there. We were not mistaken...locally sourced food, the provenance shared by the front house team, superb service and the most delicious bio Rose wine. As two 'profs' of an Ecole Superieure in the Perigord, we say 'hats off' En Face, it... More

We visited this restaurant two nights running because we enjoyed the food and the friendly service. It's in a very good position near the canal and very close to the historic centre of Narbonne. The menus are varied and based on local produce well cooked and presented. There is a good selection of local wines.

Cracking restaurant recommended to us by some locals. The food was fresh, tasty and there was a good menu with plenty of choice. The set menu looked great and was very reasonable however, we just opted for main courses. My husband chose the steak whilst I opted for the seafood salad - both of which were filling and delicious.

To make a choice between the numerous restaurants that offer rather cheap lunch is difficult. This locally decorated restaurant near de canal presents a choice of two different plates for lunch. We asked for the pork filet but the meat was overdone and hard to chew ( maybe we choose the wrong dish and had been better off with the... More

Four of us had lunch here and felt immediately at home in the bustling resto. Lots of locals it seemed so we were optimistic. Hovever our 3 Prix fixe mains were dreadful! Massively overlooked pasta with bland unseasoned salmon cream sauce - all cold; terrible tough cut of beef and an oily smelly cuttlefish dish my friend found inedible. Only... More

This is a bustling and busy bistro. We got in without a reservation, but it was packed. Lots of choices and vegetarian options. The food was good, but not exceptional. Service was very basic.

We were attracted to this lovely looking restaurant with outside seating on a warm evening. The service was very attentive and friendly but unfortunately not matched by the food coming out of the kitchen. Pretty much all dishes were served with either standard rice and veg stew on the side or greasy chips and veg stew, a bit disappointing. The... More
