Excellent family lunch for a holiday treat

We are here on a Friday lunchtime in August as a family of four. Restaurant was reasonably busy. Very friendly service and very child friendly. No choice menu but the waiter/chef asked us beforehand what our likes/dislikes are. We all had an excellent pre-starter of mussels with a carbonara... read more

Came here with my fiancée and her parents near the end of our holiday in France. They had been the year previously and had raved about it so we decided to go and try it for ourselves. Came here last Wednesday 22nd July. For it being a Wednesday night the restaurant was still very busy with a mix of locals... More

Had high expectations as friends raved about it it left feeling disappointed. The mussel with bacon we were given when we sat down were amazing, delicious & starter was very good also but sadly went down hill from there. I opted for non fish course , steak which was average, a tad tough. The main course was also Aberdeen Angus... More

With ratings as good as this restaurant has gotten, I was a little concerned that the buildup would better than the experience. I was pleasantly wrong. Everything about the evening (which lasted for over 3 hrs) was wonderful. The restaurant's is named for it's owner/chef Olivier Bontemps. And it's well named because everything about this restaurant is about Oliver. He... More

We first tried to book this restaurant 5 years ago and were disappointed to find they were closed at the time of our visit. However it was definitely worth the wait. The whole visit is a total experience & reflects the passion of the owners. The menu is divided into different options, depending on how many courses you wish to... More

Nice open atmosphere and friendly unpretentious Staff. I had the 50 Euro Menu (4 courses). The starter and dessert were superb but the two middle plates were disappointing. The fish dish was spoilt because it was smothered in a ratatouille type sauce. The meat dish was accompanied by no more than a teaspoon of sauce. The accompanying vegetable dish was... More

Delicious food - the duck in particular was spectacular - with a very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere for our lunchtime meal even though we brought our 7 month old!

Our favourite restaurant in the Languedoc. We had a wonderful meal to celebrate my wife's birthday, and as usual Olivier delivered a very delicious meal, certainly Michelin standard. Our welcome was lovely and the service was superb. Our friend Nita who is staying with us for a few days, remarked how much she enjoyed whole experience. Well done Olivier, you... More
