Great French food

Excellent food and service but you have to booked in advance. Open for lunches and evening meals. Highly recommended

We had a wonderful meal, local fare cooked to perfection, with a delicious wine from the region. In the summer you can sit outside, romantic...

This was my first visit, with my son at the invitation of his father-in-law. The service was excellent. Attentive as required but leaving time to converse or simply relax between courses. But the star of the show was Olivier and his fabulous cooking. From amuse bouche through to dessert the cooking was a delight and the presentation spectacular. Each course... More

Fantastic experience! In fact, the best in Languedoc, with no hesitation. The food is an adventure, with new tastes exploding on the palet, beautifully decorated plates that are simply mouth watering. The flavours and the textures are varied and offer a different experience at every dish. The chef himself is part of the experience, friendly and down to earth. And... More

We went here with friends on a wednesday night, we did well to get a reservation and the place was packed when service was in full swing. Extremely proficient service and the chef comes periodically to talk to diners. We were served smoked mussels as a prelim, which was amazing, after than and the amuse-bouche that followed I was already... More

Four of us visited O Bontemps in September for my wife's and my wedding anniversary, along with my sister and brother-in-law. The restaurant is in the heart of Magalas village, and is in a beautifully restored old building. The decor and ambience is excellent, and we noticed that although there were about 18 diners on the night we were there,... More

Simple, clean decor. I was told this was "the best table in the region". Seeing I do not really know much about this region, this was very nice. What was cool, was that we were 18 in our group, and we sort of owned the place for the evening. Everything other people have mentioned was pretty accurate; you do not... More

Four of us had a wonderful meal here last Thursday night. From start to finish, the food was excellent - creative, tasty, seasonal, well-prepared and well-priced. As good as the food was, however, it was the service and hospitality that really made the evening. The staff was extremely helpful (and patient with our limited French) and the service was great....

I and my husband, together with my brother and his wife recently had the great pleasure to eat at this excellent restaurant, the place itself is small, but there is plenty of space and each table is far enough away from it's neighbour to not overhear their conversation, decoratively it is a nice bright and modern place and scrupulously clean....

We had a very good experience when having dinner at the Bontemps. We had a meny with both fish and meat. Everything was good but maybe not exceptionell except the mussels we had before the dinner even started. The best moules I have ever tasted. The staff is more than you can ask for. Really nice.
