No toilets but good turkish restaurant

Motor on towards Beziers and tackle a flight of 7 locks just before the town. The locks are OK but we do have an audience of hundreds who are there to watch the fun and games as inexperienced boaters play dodgems in the locks. I don’t know how long these hire boats last but the attrition rate must be pretty high.
Tie up on the town quay in Beziers but there are no facilities at all, no toilets, showers or electricity and to fill up with water requires a special adapter which only hire boats have. It seems like Beziers has turned its back on the canal.
Decide to go out for the evening and then have a dispiriting walk through Beziers, along busy roads, through an underpass and across some road works, none of which is suitable for pedestrians but there seems to be no other way of getting there. Climb up through mean streets and settle on a Turkish restaurant which at first sight doesn’t look too promising but we are led up to the first floor to an immaculately clean room where we are the only customers. We are then entertained by a very pretty waitress who is Moroccan, hates Beziers and can’t wait to get back to London which she thinks is very cool. Have a good meal and then thank the chef when the waitress brings him out to meet us. Turns out business is not good which is a shame as the food is good, the place is very clean and the people very friendly. If you are ever stuck in Beziers try Restaurant Antalya II Milas.
