We had an amazing dinner here on the first day of our holiday, we tried to go back but unfortunately the very next day they had closed for the year as it was end of season. We were given an 'amouse bouche' which was a cold beetroot puree with goat's cheese which my partner loved. For main course I had... More

We had to book a week ahead to get in this time, it was our sixth visit. This is popular because they do everything 100% right. From greeting you to when you leave you feel as if they really care. The food and service is exemplary the court yard setting where we prefer to eat is memorable. We chose the... More

After mooring in Homps we found this delightful restaurant. Hidden behind the facade was a courtyard with tables and the kitchen area. There were plenty of people in the restaurant, but as a group of 8 we did not feel harassed and the service was very good. Most of the group had the €19.50 3 course menu and all were... More

We ate here in the evening. Tourist season was declining (late September) but this place was full. We booked as we were a group of 8. We were very well looked after and the owner ensured we got what we wanted. They were flexible with the menu and allowed slight changes. The food was well cooked using local ingredients. Local...

The outside of this restaurant gives you no idea of what it is like inside. On the bank of the Canal du Midi, you have a little idyllic garden with great food and service. Easily accessible for wheelchairs. Very efficient friendly staff and a comprehensive menu. Everything is "fait maison" and very seasonal. Good wine list at affordable prices. I... More

This was the worst meal we have had on our 14 day trip in France inc a week on canal du midi. My fish was ok but not great deal of taste. My friend,s steak which was supposed to be sirloin was tough and almost inedible . Their idea of well cooked was rare to medium and there was a... More

We had some drinks here while awaiting our boat trip. It's a delightful spot to sit by the canal and watch the world go by.

We visited La Peniche for lunch in July after finishing a canal cruise. The courtyard garden is pleasant although a number of patrons placed in the sun soon requested to be moved to shade tables! Service throughout was fine. The food is average French cuisine - perfectly edible but not particularly memorable. My salmon was slightly overcooked but my companions... More

We dine at La Peniche quite often, it is one of our favourites. Friends took me and my husband as a birthday treat yesterday. It was a very hot day. About half an hour before our booking we decided to go there for a drink by the canal. Our order was taken but just after it arrived, a good twenty... More

Living nearby, we have visited this restaurant 3 times in the last few weeks. Although situated by the Canal du Midi, it is the delightful courtyard setting which makes this restaurant so attractive. The food is well prepared, and is one of the relatively few places locally one can enjoy the classic cassoulet.

Halfway between Beziers and Carcassonne, Homps is a small village along the road Minervoise. You must enter the village you find along the Canal du Midi and see the port and seaside atmosphere you will be immediately attracted to our terrace at the water's edge and little blue chairs that invite you to relax. Feel free to come: after crossing the room, you will find at the back, the charm of the shady garden, sheltered from all winds where you can sample our cuisine and our wood-fired pizzas. The friendly atmosphere you will enjoy a warm and relaxed.
