We were travelling on a hire boat on the canal du midi when we noticed the advert stating a free taxi service to this village restaurant. We were picked up in a battered car by the owner, who was very friendly, but I have to say, unshaven and generally a bit scruffy. On entering the premises we were both overcome... More

If you are ever on the Canal du Midi and spend the night in Villesèquelande, give the owners a ring beforehand and they will come a pick your party up. It's a cozy little restaurant with great food, but if you do not book, or get there early, you may not get food. They only cater for a small amount... More

Tripped over this location on a bike tour back in 2012. I was desperate for some lunch and I found this to be pretty much the only place that would have been open. I didn't expect much, and the place was so unsuspecting being on the side of the highway like that. I was just amazed. Everything was perfect. Left... More

Wow! What a wonderful experience!We stumbled across this restaurant as we were exploring the region. Our party spoke just a few words of French. The proprietor made us feel incredibly welcome! The food was also very good. Our party all had different dishes and we enjoyed them immensely. Very homey and welcoming environment. If you are traveling down the canal... More

Had the name of restaurant from some reviews on Canal du Midi. Was pleased to see signage at the mooring point and all along the path - easy to find. Don't let the walk worry you - they will pick you up and drop you off if you phone. It is about 700 metres but an easy walk through residential... More

Thanks to the proprietor who picked us up near where we moored our boat on the canal du midi we had a fabulous lunch with a well picked bottle of local Minervois. Salad, confit du canard, tarte Normande and coffee all for 20€ including the Taxi service back to the boat. Definitely recommend this restaurant at Villesequelande.

Traveling by boat on the Canal du Midi we stopped at the mooring and saw a sign announcing this restaurant. It announced free taxi service. We walked anyway and were warmly welcomed by the proprietor in very unpretentious surroundings. The meal was unexpectedly outstanding. Confit de canard (baked duck) was the specialty of the region and we all agreed that... More

We visited this restaurant one evening after calling the owner who as most have said picked us up in his own car at the bridge on the canal du midi. We had decided to visit after some Australian boaters moored near us had also mentioned they were visiting and I can say we were not disappointed with either the food,... More

As others stated, a very friendly owner will pick you up at the Canal if you call ahead. We had very good duck confit -- a house specialty. I believe the menu (3 courses) was around 19 euros.

A husband-and-wife run restaurant in a tiny village on the highway between Castelnaudary and Carcassone also situated on the Canal du Midi, this place is the French equivalent of a middle American home style place. The husband/waiter will come pick you up from the Canal du Midi if you call ahead for a reservation. This was very handy for us... More
