La Maison de Camile restaurant/cafe is run by very friendly people and is located right on the port side. The decor is very stylish and La Maison de Camille is a nice place to have a drink during the day or have a simple meal at night. We have only ever had drinks here and crepes for our boys, but I would like to try it during the evening. It would be a great place just to watch the world go by. La Maison de Camille is located on Quai Atonin Gros, Marseillan, France.

I have never eaten here, but friends of ours reckon that it is the pick of the Languedoc restaurants in Carcassonne's medieval city. This family-run bistro serves classy, beautifully presented French cuisine in an old shuttered Auberge.
The Café du Port Languedoc restaurant is a very popular bistro on the banks of the Canal du Midi at Paraza. This Languedoc restaurant specialises in home cooked food (don't expect a fast service as everything is cooked fresh in-house).
The Hungry Fox restaurant located in the quaint village of Cuxac-Cabardes, close to Carcassonne has a gained a good reputation amongst the locals for lovely food and excellent value for money. This family run restaurant is famous for it's pizzas, made fresh on site by the chef.
Now I have never been here and the main reason forthis is that whenever I go past La Taverne de Port, it is always jammed full (always a good sign). It is only a small place, but the atmoosphere looks good. The menu seems to lean towards fish and shellfish (which makes sense given you are sitting on the edge of the best oyster and mussel producing lake in France). Also, people we know in Marseillan say that you can always get a good bottle of wine here.
When I started writing this article I was thinking that Beziers is a bit of a wasteland for good restaurants. But the more I thought about it, I actually realised that as long as you choose carefully, you can eat pretty well in Beziers.

The Petit Pierre restaurant, Beziers, really came to prominence when the Chef and patron, Pierre Augé won the Top Chef TV title in France in 2010. Augé has since gone on to win this covetted title 3 times, this most recent victory being in April 2016.
The Vinipolis restaurant and wine centre is a welcome addition to the Languedoc wine industry. The enterprising wine cooperative of Florensac opened the Vinipolis complex in 2008. Set in a shiny glass building, Vinipolis provides informative tours and wine tastings, together with an excellent brasserie next door.
If you love excellent food and wine, then there can be no finer restaurant in the South of France as Auberge du Vieux Puits. This Michelin star restaurant is run by the celebrated French chef, Gilles Goujon; and it has just received its 3rd Michelin star award. I can not recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food, the service, the wine, the cheese . . . all were excellent.
What a great little place this is. Tucked in the narrow streets in the heart of the port town of Marseillan, Table d'Emilie restaurant was recommended to us by many friends who raved about it. It took us around 3 years to actually get to go there, but we were very impressed. The lunch time menus start from around €19 a head.

L'Auberge du Presbytere, Languedoc restaurant, has one of the most amazing views. It is located on a rocky outcrop in the hills above Roujan. The local village is called Vailhan and we often go here to swim in the lake that is below the village. We have also been to a Music Festival in the village (a very drunken night). It is a sleepy sort of village and you do need a map and compass to find it (it is about 5kms along country roads out of the back of Roujan). We took two of our sons here, just before I was going away on a work contract. It was the middle of August, the sun was shining and we were sat outside having fantastic food.
Friends bought us a meal at La Chateau du Port as a joint birthday gift. It was a few years back when we were really struggling for money whilst we were building up the website, so it was very much appreciated. I cannot remember much about it, other than the wine was extremely good and the food was a good standard, (but without being spectacular). The inside is very chic and it is located overlooking the port (on the quieter right side). We have friends who always go there and they say that they have never had a bad meal yet.
La Chateua du Port restaurant, Marseillan is located at 9 Quai de la Résistance. For reservations: Tel: +33 (0)4 67 77 31 67; Web: www.le-chateau-du-port.com).
