Ourselves and our relatives come to this restaurant every year. It never fails and gets better year by year. It's treatment of vegetables is exemplary, and the meat and fish are generous and well cooked. Good wine too.

Baeutifully located restaurant on the banks of the Canal du Midi. We were welcomed by the charming & attentive Marie, but when we looked at the menu, we thought "hmm - a bit pricy!" We were wrong! The dishes were exquisite and we had one...More

Always a warm greeting, 🤩amazing food, great location and a fabulous bottle of Viognier! The price is very reasonable - it’s our favourites if you are cycling down the canal du midi from Carcassonne. Thanks!

Looking at last years reviews it was suggested this place was closed - Not The case. Probably just closed for the winter. We ate here 21st April and it was definitely open! Still a little quiet as it's early in the season but it's a...More

Despite several recommendations from locals, when we arrived in the lock (10oct17) the lock keeper said it had been closed for at least two weeks. She said she had no idea what had happened to it, it just upped and left! No indication anywhere online...More

We were recommended this restaurant for dinner, lovely setting to eat whilst overlooking the canal du midi. Food quality was excellent and the service very good. We drove to it but could easily pull up on the canal to eat or bike/hike to it.

We cycled here along the canal du midi - a pleasant and easy cycle even for a beginner. The outdoor seating provides beautiful shade and good views of boats negotiating the lock. We had sashimi salmon (a starter) and calamari with chorizo. All the dishes...More

La Rive Belle is just outside of town and very much worth the trip if you have a car or can ride a bike for a few miles on the canal. We've eaten here before, and this time we took friends for their first time....More

As mentioned by BC049 it's right by the canal lock. It was, in the old days, the lock keepers house. We were there on a Saturday and again on a Tuesday. As for being always open, I don't know but you can ask the lock... More
