Found this little beauty of a restaurant on route to the airport. I cannot recommend highly enough. The food and service were both exceptional, definitely a highlight of our trip! Thank you x

Sit out on the deck that srretches over the canal, take a glass of Noilly Prat and contemplate the menu. Maybe choose from the selection of tapas before a main course of scallops. The location and service plus great food make this a no brainer stop.

It took us a bit of time to find this restaurant along the Canal du Midi in Beziers. Casual dining, very friendly owner and wait staff. We sat in a tented area up high next to the canal. We all ate baked sea bream with a small side of mashed potatoes (lovely) and creamy squash with a hint of fresh... More

Found this place be sheer accident due to the late arrival at a lock during lock keepers lunchtime. What a cracker of a place complete with beautiful dogs to greet you. Food was high quality and delicious. The owner was very accommodating with his english and the whole lunch was high end serviced. Thank you

We've eaten at this restaurant several times in the past few years and it was always satisfactory but we went for lunch with another couple to see the newly revamped restaurant and wow were we impressed. The decor is modern and trendy. Service was excellent and the food is now on another level. Can't wait to go back.

First visit here for several years and it did not disappoint. The owner greeted us so we instantly felt welcome. We started with a sharing platter and then two of us had equisitely cooked scallops, one had sea bass and the other melt in the mouth lamb, all dishes beautifully presented. The rose wine suggested by the waiter went beautifully... More

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
