We eat here, while stopping over in in the town for one night, the meal was excellent, and actually one of the more enjoyable meals on our trip. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and the food was great. It wasn't just "typical" food, there were interesting flavours and new tastes. Really lovely, and congratulations to the chef and staff.

We arrived in Narbonne on a Sunday, which in France often means a culinary desert (not dessert) of two evenings must be crossed. In our desperate searching we stumbled upon this busy restaurant, one of several spilling out onto the street which lines the right bank of the canal in the historic centre. These establishments vary in character, but this... More

We found this place by chance on a Sunday afternoon when very little else appeared to be open. We were encouraged by another customer telling us that the food was really good.....and it was, our melon with ham was beautiful, the salad was fresh and it was just perfect, this was followed by fish, which was perfectly cooked and with...

With all the lovely cheese available in France (including in Narbonne's market halls, just opposite), it's a shame that En Face felt it necessary to use those orange squares of 'plastic' cheese in their burger (and charge €15 for it!). Probably the most disappointing burger I've had in some time. The meat was also overdone, and complemented by greasy chips,... More

This bustling restaurant sits by the side canal de la Robine in central Narbonne. Service was prompt and polite with well presented food. Ideally placed for a quick business lunch or get together with friends. I had a delicious lunchtime salad, rosé wine but didn't have time for coffee or dessert. The waiter adjusted our bill to take account of... More

We have eaten at en face many times & my husband (who is an expert on steaks!) says that these are the best. I usually have one of the small delicious salads which are in fact quite large, followed by a wonderful cafe gourmand.The staff are very efficient & the decor is very French - in a good way!

Didn't live up to the reviews I'd read. Service good but food not quite there - entrecôte steak was overdone and my cod with chorizo crumb was tasty but small - served with plain rice. I expected more from the chorizo topping, it was lacking the punch of chorizo. Not bad.

This place has been here for years and is very well run. Lovely food and done well. The chips are fantastic! I also love the salmon tartare. The decor is classic old school French, which is charming. Always a safe bet.

This restaurant giving out on the Canal de la Robine in the centre of town is obviously in an excellent location. Fortunately the friendly and quick service is up to par and the quality of the food served makes for an enjoyable meal in a bubbling friendly atmosphere. Been there before, will go there again ...
