Wonerful meal and a great price. The perfect example of a traditional French restaurant. Could not fault it.

Absolutely faultless evening! The 3 course set menu for €20 was extraordinary - each course was fantastic. I had a goats cheese terrine to start, stuffed sea bream for main, and cheese for dessert. The first 2 were seasoned and cooked perfectly, and the cheese was out of this world! Drinks were good too, and the service was friendly and... More

A hot Saturday evening in June, actually the night of the National Festival of Music. We picked this place because it looked nice and had a traditional menu (the Poule au pot, of course being on it). It was pleasant enough, though service was quite slow, even though there were only a few diners. Menu was OK, but my partner... More

My husband and I attempted to try this restaurant. I say "attempted" because we left before placing an order. We asked for a table, and received a lot of attitude from the hostess because we did not make a reservation. We were seated in a completely empty restaurant. We waited for 20-30 minutes while the server was on a personal... More

As this was our last night in Montpellier we wished for something a little special. We were one of the first people in the restaurant. A worrying sign was that there only apperared to be one person taking orders, serving food, and preparing the drinks orders. The restaurant was full (40 covers). Service went from mediocre to non existant. People... More

This is a VERY casual establishment, so allow plenty of time while the (admittedly friendly) staff get cranked up to the idea of working. Our food, a north African paella, was actually quite tasty and the portions generous. We were offered a free brandy at the end of the meal, though we hadn't made any complaint. Not the worst place...

Had dinner in this restaurant while attending a conference. The main room of the restaurant has beautiful middle age archs with a touch of tacky decoration. The menu has a large variety of products and dishes and a nice range of menus. Service was moderately quick and food was average. Although they have the menu in English, it has been... More

We ate dinner here in June 2009. The only downside is that you are located indoors, however the inside of the building is quite interesting with a particularly interesting ceiling design. The food was excellent. We had spicy sausages for entree then a local duck dish and a chicken dish (with Calvados cream sauce - and you could really taste... More
