One of the things I deplore in Montpellier is that there's a lot of restaurants, but only a few of them cook traditional French food. Le Bistrot de l'Ancien-Courrier is one of those rare places where you can sit down with friends in a classy,...More

We enjoyed a good meal here. The prices are very competitive - 17.50 Euros for a main and dessert (or main and starter), both of which were delicious if not absolutely top notch. The servings are not massive, but perfectly adequate and well cooked. We...More

Pleasant venue. Very competitive pricing which can't be achieved without making some compromises but everything we had was fine. Smallish wine list of which some are hugely expensive but the more readable offerings are very good and affordable
