Bustly, decent quality bistro

Laid back and popular bistro on the canal front. Had a good quality steak here. Portions were of a good size. Service was prompt and friendly,

Overlooking the canal which runs through the centre, the En Face is a nice little restaurant, with outdoor seating. The basic menu is 17.50 Euros, with a choice of several options for each of the three courses. My wife and I had different food for each course, and there we had no complaints at all. Service was very friendly and... More

Service started reasonably well but quickly became slow despite not being full. None of the food was anything special for the middle of the road price tag. Location is great. Right by an avenue of trees which line the canal and is in the centre of the historic town. Another plus was the clean loo. But it is a tourist... More

Neat restaurant on the smart canal promenade in Narbonne. It's terrace is an attractive place to enjoy dinner on a hot summer's evening with the menu a snip at €17.50. Two courses of salmon tartare and tasty beef, cooked as ordered, in a cream sauce were great value for money and the food was well presented and service was friendly... More

Had a Sunday overnight in Narbonne and we needed somewhere to eat. The iberico platter starter was fantastic, plenty for two of us to share, and the cassoulet was superb, sausage, duck and haricot heaven. With bottle of vin gris, the bill was €55. I would recommend this place wholeheartedly, but turn up early if you haven't booked!

Enjoyed my swordfish in this cheerful small restaurant. Place was busy, but tables were available. And service was fast!! I was surprised at the two large pieces of swordfish that I was delivered, and it was delicious. Perfectly cooked, not dry, and well seasoned. Reasonably priced. I also had a nice glass of regional wine, and excellent pistachio ice cream.... More

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.

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.
