The people were welcoming and friendly and made me feel very comfortable. The wine suggestions were spot on. The boeuf came with a "marrow tart" that was unbelievably flavorful and brought back childhood memories somehow. This restaurant is something special. I'd come back to Montpellier just for it. It was the happiest accident. I turned a corner and it was... More

What a lovely surprise. I've been told this is one if the best places to eat in Montpellier and we were not disappointed. Our baby boy Aiden was very cranky, but the staff did not complain and we're very helpful. Would happily come here again.

Chose this as it has a bib gourmande award. What a superb family run eatery. The mid day menu was small, but very imaginative, using fresh local ingredients. The food was superbly presented and the combination of flavours excellent, ie beetroot and white peach gazpacho with a goat's cheese mousse! Wow!! Service and wines were impeccable and prices at lunchtime,... More

We sat al fresco on small tables in rue Saint Firmin, a small street in old Montpellier. Every single dish was to die for. Gosh, what flavours !! The fish ! the desserts !! Even the tomato salad, with a selection of tomatoes grown by a "tomatologue", was exquisite. Everything, including the service, was absolutely perfect. My only hope is... More

Good modern bistro with very friendly staff. Great starter to which we chose a great local white wine. Mains were pretty good as well but a little bland. Decent selection of wines both from the the region and from the rest of France.

My wife and my daughter visiting from Paris had a absolutely wonderful meal at this restaurant a few nights ago. The food was simply outstanding, superbly presented and in a timely manner. The menu is interesting and combines many different flavours. The service was excellent, always available but unobtrusive. We had a wonderful night at this restaurant. The only thing... More

L'artichaut is on one of the small streets in old Montpellier and maybe t is different for dinner at night but the lunch menu is limited. The starter was a little disappointing but the plat was delicious and excellent quality. The staff were helpful and wine by the glass was very reasonably priced with a couple of choices in each...
