My husband and I adored the look and feel of the place. It filled very quickly and we loved the ambiance. The food is very good, feels like home-made and there is plenty of it. All in all you feel very much at home and come out happy. We had pig foot pastry and baked camembert for starters, and lamb... More

Small place somewhat tucked away, popular with a local kind of hip crowd. The kitchen is right in the dining area. I had the Ris de Veau Torte which was a pastry covering a rich tasty filling. My wife loved the Gratined Oysters. She also enjoyed the steak with crispy mushrooms for a main dish and I had a nice... More

With that kind of price, I expect better quality of food and service although it seems to quite popular for locals. Food - The raw tuna appetiser (€11) was good portion and tasty. The steak (€24) was hugely disappointed. I asked for medium rare, but most parts were either well done or bloody raw. The sautéed vegetables on the side... More

This restaurant is truly exceptional in that it has both wonderful food and ambience. Chef Guillaume prepares everything in an open kitchen so it is fun to watch and he uses the freshest ingredients and turns out meals that are pleasant to view and wonderful to eat! He, his assistants and wait staff always make us feel welcome and we... More

What an amazing place. I recon, it is the best restaurant in Montpellier. The food is excellent and not expensive for the quality and quantity. The chef is really kind, nice and more than all HUGELY talented. I use to do a lot of restaurant (working around the world) and I really hope a restaurant of that kind can open... More

Ask yourself: why spend 11 euros for a synthetic pizza when for 18 euros you can eat a dream of a pork chop? The cooking here is fabulous. The wines excellent, the service delightful and attentive. And when the check arrives, a surprise for us Parisians: a fabulous dinner for the price of a glass of champagne (we have paid... More

This small place, in a quiet neighbourhood a short walk from my B&B outside the centre of Montpellier, was delightful. It's tiny and I ate at the bar watching the staff prepare the food. The staff, from chef to busboy, all seem to enjoy being there, obviously like one another, and engage with the diners. The menu is small and... More

Having failed to locate our chosen restaurant, the Inattendu wine was very appropriate and tasty. We enjoyed watching the two friendly chefs cooking our meals (and other people's) in a very professional and laid back manner. The food they produced was excellent. One of us had pot au feu - very traditional with bone marrow, potatoes and very tender slow... More

I'm sorry, but this was not what I expected, after reading the glowing reviews. It was the only reservation I made in Montpellier, and unfortunately that night's menu didn't include anything that appealed. The patio looked dreadful, so we ate inside, which was tiny but nice. Ended up ordering lobster, with no enthusiasm, especially at 35 Euros. And it was... More

What a wonderful place. Small as your front home and twice as cosy. Booked in advance just to be sure of a table. Sat right opposite the chef and got see everything that was going on. Had the terrine and the roast lobster for main. Unbelievable taste to everything, it was a true assault on the taste buds. Made to... More

No card (menu)! Just beautiful slate which changes every days inspired by seasonal produce. The chef does not dry up ideas to treat you with different slate every day. The traditional dishes and the revisited recipes(receipts) will delight your papillae.
