Great local cuisine beside the canal du midi

A beautiful spot to eat lunch beside the canal du midi. An interesting menu made up of local dishes using from nearby producers. Great for lunch and dinner but also for a drink beside the canal and to taste their ice cream made from sleeps milk. The lunch menu features a very nice "assiette de... read more

We had a very bad experience at Le Comptoir Nature. - We rented one of their boats and it ran out of batteries and it took us over an hour to travel what would have taken 30 minutes on foot. Accidents happen but there was no apology or concern shown. - Then we ate in the restaurant and it was... More

We decided to go to the restaurant based on the excellent TA reviews. It's was a Friday evening and we were very lucky to get a table as they were almost booked. In high season and at weekends, would suggest you make a reservation. Located right on the canal, it's incredibly picturesque. They also have live jazz most evenings. Prices... More

Excellent canal-side restaurant in Le Somail selling freshly cooked local food. A real find and now we come here regularly. Try the ham and melon and one of their fresh fruit juices - really good!

Last night of the holiday in the region and a table booked for Le Someil's Le Comptoir Nature. Excellent service and super local food. Atmosphere super and added to by the guitar duo and local songs. An outstanding evening.

We had a terrific evening, starting with a tour on the canal with a small electric boat we rented there. Food was excellent, fresh, family style. Service was very friendly and we enjoyed listening to the Jazz band Aleberic that played that night. Jazz Concert every wednesday during summer, popular French songs every Friday.

We chose this restaurant by the canal du midi for dinner as a change from town centre eateries, the location was lovely by the canal and watching the boats passing and ducklings playing. The food was ok, I have certainly had better, meat was very undercooked, my fault for not checking, but I wasn't asked either, service was ok, but... More

We stayed at a gite in Le Somail and eat at this restaurant a few times, both lunch and dinner. Great inventive and different food (NO CHIPS), friendly service and dog friendly. Well deserves it's Trip Advisor rating. Enjoy!!!

This used to be the best in Le Somail, salads which were truly excellent now seem to have a high level of iceberg lettuce. Ice cream still good for kids and for some reason food is better at lunch than in the evening. This is hugely popular and my fear is they have become a little complacent.
