The restaurants recommended in this blog have all been visited by me and my wife and often with friends. We have visited them at least once. I only recommend restaurants that have a quality that, in my opinion, makes them worth a visit.
Some are world class restaurants, some are very simple, but the food is always worth the price and the chefs have prepared it with pride and love of good food.
The food is essential for being mentioned here. Minor problems when it comes to service and other things are mentioned but does not disqualify them from being recommended.
We have also eaten in some restaurants in the area that do not leave any memories worth writing about.
Finally we have been to very few bad restaurants and have been badly serviced in a few.
These three categories are marked differently in List of Restaurants.
marks our special restaurants. On the map they are found by the red marks and in the search term list under coup de ceur

EN FACE


EN FACE - 27 Cours de la République, 11 100 Narbonne

This is one of our favorites for lunch in Narbonne. The name "En Face" means on the opposite side and the restaurant has got its name because it is located on the opposite side of Canal de la Robine from the well-known Restaurant L’Estagnol, from which it has its origin.

The kitchen is traditionally French with everything that is typical for the region on the menu. They serve both set menus and a selection of salads and other dishes. A small salad, which is enormous, costs 7 euros. They have a good selection of local wines and the house wine of the day is often served in it's bottle that you can drink as much as you like from and pay for what you have consumed. A spectacular desert is Café Gourmand, which is a little bit of everything on the dessert-menu with a cup of espresso. If you order an extra cup of coffee it is enough for two.

Revisited in 2013: This used to be our favourite among hop-in unpretentious restaurants, but the three last times we have been there we have been disappointed with both the food and the service. Often we have not got what we expected and the preparation has not been to our liking. Comments on this has been met by arguments from the staff.
