Open all year, restaurant l'Anais is a hidden gem in the sud-Minervois. The superb period decor takes you back to Paris in the 1920's although the regular music nights have a more modern theme. Enjoy a glass of local wine at the pewter bar or indulge your tastebuds with the famous crème brûlée in the restaurant!

little gem

Nice little restaurant in a small French village. Excellent food and great service. Run by a English and Belgium couple. I do recommend the pollock fillet!

Worth going to see the restaurant inside ...very original ...lovely tiled floor. Had family Sunday lunch once which was very ordinary but Friday fish and chips is great ( but take your own ketchup !!) Joanna can be a tad off hand and appear unfriendly ...we have visited a few times but she does not seem to know us

Had a fabulous family meal here last night. Four adults and two children all catered for with some excellent food. All had different meals and all were delicious! The house rose wine was great too. Staff were friendly and service good. Will be returning soon!

Menu choices fantastic, something for everyone including kids. Food was excellent quality and good value. Waiting staff very friendly owner Joanna was very helpful and accommodating with kids allowing them to rehearse and perform an after dinner show on the stage X Even bought some art work displayed on the walls. Lol

I highly recommend this restaurant. The owner was friendly and very helpful. The food was great. We ate on the terrace where it was nice and cool in very hot weather. It's away from the canal - so no flies! (A welcome change in the summer in this area). Will definitely be returning.

While the fact this restaurant is run by an English couple bore little on our visit it made for a good venue. The menu is bilingual, veggie and gluten free options are displayed (rare for France) while any questions you might have when ordering can be quickly and easily answered. As a venue l'Anais is in a sleepy village that... More

During our stay in the Canal du Midi we just kept going back to this lovely unpretentious restaurant, three times in 2 weeks actually ! A varied menu which catered for the fish and non fish orientated customer. Prompt and efficient service and nice décor which took one back to the 1940's when the building used to be a cinema....

A very pleasant restaurant in this typical southern village. Pleasant service in a lovely decorated room. The food was competent rather than too fancy. The wine list was good local choices. The Creme Brûlée was first rate!
