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

Ate here recently with my parents. Had pleasant menus at 19 EUR, very good wine. Service was good (we arrived early) but declined a bit in terms of rapidity as more guests arrived. Overall very pleasant experience.

I was taken here by a French friend for lunch. It was a very busy bustling sort of place, which is obviously popular with locals. They have a good variety of food at great prices, and some nice wine too. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

This restaurant was recommended to us by friends and our landlady in Narbonne. We went on a Saturday evening and our visit started well, the place was practically empty and had no problem getting a table, as we had not booked one beforehand. The oysters and the wines we drank were OK but the main courses were extremely disappointing, nothing... More

We stumbled upon this lovely characterful restaurant with friends when strolling around Narbonne just after Christmas. We were welcomed and taken to a table and the waiting staff could not have been more helpful. Great atmosphere and obviously a place that the locals like. Have been back twice more and will be going again this Saturday. You should try speaking... More

Hi there I had dinner here solo a couple of times on advice of locals. I was not disappointed. The food was fresh and well prepared and presented. Be aware that some waiters do not speak English well. My french is passable (just) but I noticed English speaking diners commencing to order in English without even a courteous "bonsoir". This...
