Restaurant La Guingette

Situated on the banks of the Canal in the centre of the village, this outdoor restaurant (with some covered seating) provides reasonable quality food at reasonable prices. Because of its’ location it does get popular, so booking in advance is recommended.


Le Terrace

Situated on the banks of the canal just beside the boat marina in the village. Perhaps our favourite restaurant, this wooden shack serves good homemade food.  The menu is no extensive but it is all good.  A great place to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun go down. 

Restaurant Lou Mercat -  Roubia

Open-air restaurant at the Epicerie Lou Mercat offers a range of simple food, well prepared and at very reasonable prices. It also offers takeaway pizza’s. It is a summer restaurant so lacks cover, which means that only the takeaway part will operate if it rains. You can often just turn-up on spec and get a table.  A firm favourite for locals and holidaymakers alike.



Le Relais de Pierre -  Paraza

A great little restaurant and grill  Once again good solid home cooking.  The Friday lunchtime authentic tagine is not to be missed.

Further afield



Domaine Gayda


A little farther afield, but well worth a visit for a leisurely lunch in the Carcassonne/Limoux area.  When we went a set lunch was around €30 and that includes all the wine you can drink. Reservations advisable, but English is spoken.


La Madrague Narbonne Plage

This is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in the area for seafood and it only does seafood.  It does not overlook the beach but the food makes up for the lack of view.  Booking required.

La Cambuse du Sainier

This has to be one of the most picturesque restaurants at the heart of the saltern, in the middle of this exceptional landscape, you can sit down to savour Saint Martin's oysters.  Interesting menu with some very unusual combinations.  It is quite expensive but well worth a visit for lunch.

Oyster shacks Gruissan

The other end of the scale this is not about expensive fine dining but it is about eating the freshest oysters you can imagine in a covered shack overlooking the sea.  This is where the oysters are landed and many of the producers have added “eating shacks” – some of which are more luxurious than others.  This is the most amazing experience.  Lunch is in the heat of the day but shaded and with a cool sea breeze.  Evenings dine under the moon and fairy lights.  I love this place so much.  Please note only seafood is served.

Please ask for information.

Les Halles - Narbonne

The local undercover market is an amazing place.  Wander around the stalls selling local produce, stop for coffee at one of the many stalls or enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants.  The raw materials come straight from the stalls in the market.
