It should be noted this restaurant is now called La Promenade but has no Tripadvisor entry under this name. This is the fourth time I have visited in recent months because it is local. I had hoped the low volume of customers would have improved the restaurant. There has been a change in staff and they appear somewhat more enthusiastic.... More

This restaurant is very local to me and visited numerous times in the past. My first recent review under new management was to say the least disappointing. Because it is local I tried a re-visit because I had commented directly to the staff about how disappointed i was. This time I chose the Chicken Basquaise. To me and most people... More

This restaurant has been re-opened by new management. It may change its name to Le Promenade, if so will repost this. There are a few interior improvements and the menu looks good. In the past I have been here dozens of times with Chris and Jo in charge. On a Friday night at 0730 I was the only customer, not... More

Just for your information. This restaurant is closed at present with no details of an opening date. Shame as it really is an interesting place to eat.

Hello, thanks for your comments. We were sorry to close but circumstances were against us and it had to be. We really enjoyed our time at l'Anais in Ginestas. We met so many fabulous customers who often became friends and we thank everyone for making our time there so memorable. And we'll always be proud that we had a trip... More

This was the best of the restaurants we visited while in the area,. There is plenty of choice for vegetarians, meat and fish-eaters and the food is very good - especially desserts. There are also plenty of choices of pizzas. The service was also very prompt and friendly.

Lovely place. Went a little last minute but was fine without a reservation. If we'd visited here before going anywhere else first it'd have been perfect ... the only issue is having been to la selette up the road in Bize-Minervois this place was fighting an uphill battle!! Nip in here for a midweek bite ... you won't be disappointed.... More

Worth going to see the restaurant inside ...very original ...lovely tiled floor. Had family Sunday lunch once which was very ordinary but Friday fish and chips is great ( but take your own ketchup !!) Joanna can be a tad off hand and appear unfriendly ...we have visited a few times but she does not seem to know us

Nice little restaurant in a small French village. Excellent food and great service. Run by a English and Belgium couple. I do recommend the pollock fillet!

Open all year, restaurant l'Anais is a hidden gem in the sud-Minervois. The superb period decor takes you back to Paris in the 1920's although the regular music nights have a more modern theme. Enjoy a glass of local wine at the pewter bar or indulge your tastebuds with the famous crème brûlée in the restaurant!
