Wide choice of locally prepared/cooked first class food. Very friendly staff. Seated outside next to canal de midi under umbrellers. At weekends usually live performers entertain. Restaurant can be difficult to find but well worth a visit.

For same drink, same time, same table. No explanation given but receipt was... More

Linda and I stumbled across La Guingette three years ago, walking up the bank of the Herault north of Agde until we came to the point where the river meets the lower part of the Canal du Midi. There above the canal, with the river on one side and the canal lock on the other, as though it were on... More

This really is a little gem of a restaurant. It is located on the side of the river just outside Agde. The atmosphere is hippy chic. Live music at the weekend and guests can get up and dance. The food is good although not outstanding but you do get 3 courses for 15,50 euro and the wine is very reasonable.... More

We called into this fabulous casual restaurant a little too late for lunch. We were offered a plat de charcuterie to acompany the carafe of chilled rose and sat back and enjoyed the eclectic mix of music.

I had been coming to Agde for many years during my holidays but never discovered this little gem. Nested along the river among the trees and flowers overlooking the riverboats passing by. A paradise for the eyes. Of course this is winter time and the business is not very good at that time for the restaurant, but we were extremely... More

Found out about this spot from a friend- took a bit of a search but we found it as it is out of the way but that is a good thing- it sits on the canal du midi and even though it was evening- we got to see a few boats go by. The surroundings are very quirky and I... More

We have visited La Guingette on a number of occasions as a couple and have always thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This time we invited friends and had a memorable time. Ambience,quality of food, service and value hit the spot yet again.

My son and daughter discovered this canal restaurant on a bike ride along the Canal du Midi, they booked for the family for an evening meal. Wonderful location, food was very good. Service was excellent considering there was a big party from the local community. We actually got up and had a "boogie".
