Surprisingly large restaurant, right on the canal and with an excellent lunch menu. Lots of locals and french tourists, including the Police Chief...all point to a quality lunch experience. The host was delighted we drew on his cellar rather than byo. Wide variety of meal choices...with an easy combination of the lunch special and adjustments for choosing something from the... More

We went as a party of 4 on a Wednesday night and were welcomed very warmly by the owner and staff. It was quite busy, and had to wait a little for our order to be taken. However, the owner took great pains to describe the menu, the provenance of his ingredients etc. Once we received our aperos, which came... More

Enjoying a September cruise on the canal du midi we stopped at Buzet and the only restaurant that was open was this one. We were six and five of us were very pleased with the food that we had. Unfortunately one person was vegetarian and we had been assured that they could come up with something for her - we... More

What a fantastic meal. We were with our children age 8 & 12, and I am vegetarian. Nothing was too much trouble, and we ended up with the best 3 courses we hand on this holiday. The presentation was fantastic and the taste was better. Can't recommend highly enough

We had one of our best lunches ever in France here, starting with a warm, professional welcome from the owner (who spoke excellent English). Lovely covered terrace next to canal. We chose 3 course menu at €14.50 and expected a basic tourist meal, but instead had the most tasty food, with quality ingredients. Would definitely recommend this and complements must... More

We had a lovely lunch here whilst cycling the Canal Garonne on our way to Toulouse. When we arrive we were welcomed with a bit of concern about not having a booking but were seated and treated to a lovely meal. Thoroughly recommended and good value.

Nice location, just beside the canal. The food was genuine, we had the three course lunch menu with a starter of fried cheese and slowely cooked pig for main course. Very nice personnel. Highly recommended!

We actually walked past and into town on the basis that the restaurant so close to the river would be a tourist trap and be terrible. We were so wrong. We were also lucky the days of closing had been reduced and Wednesday is now overt. Yeah! The location is shady on the terrace and overlooks the canal. The owner... More

€25 dinner menu consisted of a choice of 2 starters, 2 mains and dessert. If you preferred the starter and not the main, visa versa, you could always pick from the a la carte menu at a supplement charge. If you do not want the fixed, then just choose from the a la carte menu. I was extremely happy with... More

Once one becomes used to the oh-so-cute restaurant name, and accepts the charming but completely clueless, apparently teenage, service, there is much to be enjoyed here. Prices are fine, and the daytime view, across a small shady carpark to a canal beyond, is pleasant and rural. Lunch is however a better bet than dinner, at least in the winter months,... More
