We've been here several times mainly to celebrate my birthday with the family and it's time it's been wonderful. We have tried many dishes and have always been very satisfied with both, the food and the friendly and efficient service. I recommend the 'Tapas selection' starter, which I have every time. The manager speaks English, which is an added bonus.

We went at lunchtime and, after a little difficulty finding the restaurant were show to a table on the canal side terrace. The service was friendly and efficient and the proprietor was in evidence checking that the customers were enjoying the meal while helping out with the service. The food was very good indeed. We had the menu and found... More

We had a bit of an adventure getting to this place from the wrong side of the lock but it was worth it. we had a lovely meal with a lot of local ingredients and recipes. Good cooking - and popular with local foodies rather than tourists. If you book ask for a table by the rver.

We were passing along the canal du midi by boat on our summer holiday. Just enjoying the slow pace and beautiful surroundings. Just before the next lock we tied up and walked around to l'ecluse for our lunch. What a lucky find! It was quite full but still had room and a friendly welcome for us. There was a great... More

We have had delightful lunches here on two prior occasions during the past two years and looked forward to returning after a morning of shopping. We were surprised to see a total renovation of the space: a new interior with an inviting bar and a comfortable pathway to the well used deck that abuts the canal and features views of... More

This was our second lunch visit here. The first was by accident as we took the wrong road out of Beziers and turned into their parking lot to go back in the correct direction.... but the lot was crowded... it was summer... and it was time for lunch.... so, we ate and enjoyed. Today, we returned intentionally. It was not... More

Delicious, fresh, well presented food. We ended a weekend trip to visit friends by having lunch here before heading back to Beziers airport. We were not disappointed by food or location & was very good value (about 130 euros for 4 including aperitifs', wine & cheese). We arrived just after midday having made a reservation for a table on the... More
