Description: Halfway between Beziers and Carcassonne, Homps is a small village along the road Minervoise. You must enter the village you find along the Canal du Midi and see the port and seaside atmosphere you will be immediately attracted to our terrace at the water's edge and little blue chairs that invite you to relax. Feel free to come: after crossing the room, you will find at the back, the charm of the shady garden, sheltered from all winds where you can sample our cuisine and our wood-fired pizzas. The friendly atmosphere you will enjoy a warm and relaxed.

Well, we were so impressed that we dined there twice.

Very good quality French cooking, reasonably priced. Cheerful and efficient service.

A place to relax, enjoy, savor.

Apart from the restaurant it is great to sit at a canal side table in the morning for an expresso. Or wine.

Just wish it was closer than a two hour drive

On our list when we return in autumn.

Great wood-fired pizzas in a very pretty spot right beside the canal. We were welcomed by friendly staff and seated in the courtyard out the back. Decent house wine and a tasty meal - what's not to like? If you want something posher, head over the bridge to En Bonne Compagnie - but if you're peckish for a pizza you're a million times better off here that at the Rive Gauche.

We were warmly welcomed, without a reservation off our boat, and very well served. Our French and our waitress's English were about on par, but ordering is simple if you choose the menu. And we did, the 20 Euro Terroir menu. For me, the delight was the cuttlefish, beautifully prepared and lots of it. The salad was excellent, also. All four of us were happy and well-fed. BTW - this is one of the few places in Homps that has working WiFi.

We just wanted a light lunch before our Canal du Midi barge trip. Had a nice fluffy omelett, pleasant and quick service. We had lunch inside, but they also have some sort of pleasant terrace in the back.
