The ladder of nine locks at Beziers is amazing, built in the 17th century as part of the connection of the Mediterranean with the Atlantic. You dont need to be an engineer to appreciate the this bold concept and extraordinary execution.

I found this restaurant on Trip adviser. Not to be missed. The staff are excellent, the owner charming, the meal was one of the best I ever had. The setting romantic. Highly recommended. I will return if I am in that region again.

I found this restaurant through Tripadvisor when planning a weekend away with a large group of girls. When we arrived at our apartment the owner told us it may be tricky to get to as we would have to walk for 20 mins or more down a canal path. Fine on the way there, but less so on the way... More

We visited L'Ecluse on a Sunday evening - it's always good in France to find somewhere that opens on a Sunday! The restaurant which is situated on the banks of the Canal du Midi was buzzing with local people creating a lovely atmosphere. The menu was filled with local delicacies and the portions were substantial. The food was very tasty,... More

You can tell this restaurant has a chef, not a cook. The dishes are well thought through, simple and delicious and fairly priced for such fresh produce. I had Dou foie gras as an entree which was exquisitely done and St Jacques for the main course that was perfectly cooked and sublime. House rose delicious too! However, service was slow,... More

My sisters and I wanted to have a good French meal (we are French but I live in the U.S.) near where my older sister lives. Thanks to the great reviews of l'Ecluse, we tried a place I'll return to everytime I visit her. From the first moment we stepped in and were welcomed to the wine, food and ambiance,... More

Good kids menu, I had a great magret de canard with a lovely onion butter sauce however we ate on a beautiful warm summers evening on the terrace overlooking the canal and it was a fantastic setting.
