Next to the Canal du Midi

I came down to the South of France to visit a wedding venue. My fiance and I wanted somewhere quiet but not isolated, not wanting to be around crowds of holiday makers.

Spent a week in Le Somail in September, and this restaurant was directly opposite our Chambre d'Hote. It's location on the canal side was idyllic, especially as the weather was very warm. We had several meals here, and found the fare to be very good including unusual presentations of organic vegetables, which were particularly delightful, The set formule offered plenty... More

On a recent Canal holiday on the Midi in France we moored overnight at Le Somail and we went for dinner and the free wifi at Le Comptoir Nature. Quite simply nothing went wrong. The atmosphere was relaxed, professional and lovely, the service was exceptional and the food simply perfect. Vegetables - yes there were quite a few which is... More

Five of us had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch; however, the sixth had an inedible fish soup. The deserts as are most I have ever eaten in France were very good. I would recommend eating here, just don't eat the fish soup.

Very nice lunch early September. The lady owner was lovely and introduced the history of the restaurant. 60 euros for 3 courses and wine ... cheap compared to the UK!

We had dinner at Le Comptoir Nature during our canal boat trip down the Canal du Midi. Very appealing setting. We had some laughs over a white goose that was hoping to be fed some tidbits of food. My meal was delicious: duck breast with confit, and my husband enjoyed his fresh bream, a local fish. Lovely fresh greens and... More

Right by the canal, we had dinner in the sheltered area outside. The food was great, the view perfect and the menu was great quality rustic French food. Overall a memorable experience

I have tried this restaurant a few times over many years, each time that the owner may have given up as she clearly hates to be in this business. Whilst the food is average it's this woman's total disdain to take care of her clientele that always surprises us. On one occasion she kept us waiting 15 minutes for the... More
