This canal side restaurant has a great reputation for its location, food and service. We booked to avoid disappointment despite it being just after New Yea,r despite which it was packed by locals. The wonderful couple who run this little diamond couldn't be nicer, warm, friendly and excellent hosts for whom nothing is too much trouble. The food was beyond... More

Total rip off vastly overpriced and only there to milk the tourist trade. Possibly the worst service Ive ever experienced in a restaurant in France. Total disinterest towards us the clients and very disorganised.I now feel rather foolhardy to have paid the bill

A quiet and charming little place in Le Somail with an outdoor serving on the edge of the canal. Good service and food for big and small guests alike with pleasant views of the old bridge and boats on the water.

Full restaurant, but they got us in. I am not likely to forget the pleasant atmosphere, the patience of the waiter, or the salmon tartare, which was the highlight of our stop in Le Somail.

We ate here twice during our barge trip - would recommend the ravioli starter & the red mullet. We booked to be on the safe side as it was generally quite busy

We had a lovely meal in a fantastic setting on the banks of the Canal du Midi. Staff were pleasant and helpful and food was great. Would highly recommend a visit to this restaurant.

I have been here many times and quite enjoyed the food and service however there are times when the staff can be incredibly outwardly rude! So much so that I haven't decided if I'll go back. Beautiful outdoor patio, great food however if you value being treated with respect it may not be the best choice.

Nice canal side restaurant, beautiful interior with great exposed brickwork & authentic original art work. Various prices menu from Euro 14 for 2 course lunchtime "midi Menu".....Many dishes include the excellent local Duck & a good wine list focused on Minervois wines. Good service & a more than decent Cassoulet.
