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.

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.
