We had a great meal here. From the amuse bouche right on through the dessert, everything was perfect. Our waiter was very good, the food was fantastic and the wine was delicious and well priced. We got a chance to say hello to the chef after our meal and thank him for his outstanding cuisine. We looking forward to returning... More

This place is tucked away down an alley in the old town. We sat outside. The service was charming and the menu amazing. I tried sweet breads for the first time - delicious! lovely little amuse bouches and excellent wine. I would come here again and again.

We visited here as a small group and absolutely loved it. To show how much this isn't a tourist hotspot they don't speak English and the menus aren't in English, which was a refreshing change for us. The food was fanatic, we loved the crab cannelloni and the rum baba. To be be fair, it was all great. If we... More

There are many restaurants in Montpellier, and i am glad we also tried this one. It pretty tiny inside, almost crowded, but on the other hand that falls into restaurants charme. The service was quite ok, they even let me change my order after 5 min (and it was a starter). My seashells were quite interesting to try, however i... More

Went to this restaurant after reading the reviews. Limited menu but everything well executed. My fish was cooked to perfection and my friend had steak which she said was the best she has ever eaten. The waitress was not very friendly but warmed up when she found my friend could speak French. However, one of the other waitresses was much... More

I have been in Montpellier for over 21 years and was outraged at the rude behaviour of this restaurant's owner. I don't care how good you think your food is, you have to treat your clientele with respect or you won't be in business for long. I made reservations to eat here and was told the outside tables were booked... More

This is one of the premier restaurants in Europe...excellent choices in all three courses. Not only delicious food...beautiful presentation. Reservations a must..only 20 plus seats available. If visiting Montpellier do not miss this place. Good atmosphere..a wonderful dining experience.

We have dined in many reknown Restuarants in France. So we were truly surprised to have our best meal served in a 20 person Restuarant. The chef and owner works out of a tiny kitchen, while his charming wife serves his creative dishes. Don't miss this treat and be sure and book in advance.....Carl V
