This restaurant is a little GEM. It is excellent value for money at 13 euros for the "menu du Jour". Marie France and her husband are wonderful friendly hosts, who make you feel at home and very welcome. There is no pretence of fancy over priced food here. Most of the cuisine is made by themselves on the premises, and... More

We stumbled upon Dolce Vita when starting a Canal boat holiday. Four of us enjoyed inexpensive but excellent meals accompanied by good local wine. Although nothing to look at from the road, the welcome and quality of the food made the visit memorable. A week later we returned for another meal which indicates our satisfaction. Both the tartiflette pizza and... More

We had lunch and dinner here the day before our Le Boat was ready for our Canal du Midi trip. I had a large wonderful salad for about 12 euro. Others in my group had cassoulet and enjoyed it. The menu price for lunch and dinner (3 courses) was very reasonable -- I believe around 20 euros or less. It... More
