When you arrive here take up the offer of ignoring the menu and just tell the hostess what you like and don't like. They will prepare you a meal made ftom locally, caught, grow and prepared foods that you will never forget. The flavours of the food are excellent, the wines are individually chosen and the cheese board is to... More

This restaurant in the centre of Magalas offers a greats dining experience and is well worth a visit when you are in the area. The restaurant, an old butchers shop, is well appointed and the staff are very friendly and deliver good service. Best of all is the personal welcome you get from the chef! We loved the way the...

Delicious food, presented beautifully and with style by Olivier and his team. You have to go with the food prepared that day, so if you want to order whatever you usually have, this is not the place for you- but if you want to be delighted and surprised by the fresh ingredients and innovative cooking, then you'll not find a...

Wonderful culinary evening. Passionate and attentive Chef who cares about what you like or don't like. My partner hates anything in a shell or that has to be peeled. The Chef kindly peeled the crevettes for him! Superb creativity and delightful flavour combinations. A must if you are in the Magalas/Beziers area but make sure you book first!

O Bontemps in Magalas offers a sublime dining experience. They have all the right people working there, together with a very passionate chef. It's not too over the top however this restaurant is very special and a must do experience. My tip is ARRIVE HUNGARY! There is various menus on offer however you cannot order individual dishes. Either 3, 4... More

Very much a show but fabulous. wonderful flavours but be prepared to pay for excellence. Chef was superb, even down to walking us to our car (as we'd lost our cars) only to find we'd left them in the car!! He had also driven home some diners as well - a very enjoyable experience

Just had a wonderful meal there with friends- we went there 5 years ago and have never managed to get a table there in the summers since. The amuse Bouche were perfect - loved the mussels and the croustillant cappuccino. Great hosts and amazing value for the quality of food. £30 a head for 3 courses plus the extras and... More

Perhaps not for everyone as the food is complicated and subtle. Plenty of it though with mis en Bouche etc., but there didn't seem to be a traditional menu from which you choose what you want. You pick the three or four course deal, tell them likes/dislikes and off you go! Trust them and the sommelier to match the wines... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor when looking for somewhere near Bezier. It is magical. Madame was about to have a baby, so the girl who took our reservation was quite clear that they would only be open if they were not at the hospital. Luckily for us the baby had not yet arrived. The setting is idyllic, and... More
