Excellent Bistro meal.

The restaurant was one of the recommendations from the hotel, and we were pleased. We had a table outside on the pavement and a very good meal. Classic French style food; foie gras and grilled meats, well-cooked and good portion size. Our bottle of wine was not good and it was exchanged quickly and... read more

Our children chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday meal and we were not disappointed; it is a real gem and the food was authentic and absolutely delicious. Our waiter Max was exemplary in his service and kindness. We met the chef too as we wanted to thank him personally for the quality of the food. We spent a truly... More

We came back to this restaurant in Montpellier because I had eaten here in Sept. 2014 and had a great lunch - the "formule du jour" (lunch of the day). The Bistrot Gourmand shares a little square (la place de la Chapelle Neuve) with a few other restaurants - in the summer the tables run into each other from one... More

Fantastic little find, recommended by a friendly sole on the forum. A beautiful square, and we were a large group, but the staff could not have been more accommodating. Food was classic French bistro fare, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Nothing cheap in Montpellier( Far more expensive than I remember!), but decent house wines, and a really good night under the... More

We had intended to eat at a nearby restaurant recommended by trip advisor but it was full so we ended up here by chance. How glad we were! The food was excellent, local cuisine but with a twist. The foie gras with pear was delicious as was the ceviche of sea bass with fennel and apple. We had beef as... More

A recommendation from our hotel - much appreciated. A small restaurant serving excellent food in a good atmosphere. Wonderful foie gras and perfectly cooked lamb.

2 people for a late dinner. Super serving of foie gras with vanille pear. Nice tasty piece of entrecote with few things on the side. Amazing the way you get 4 things on the plate and all of it is of very high quality. Good locale wines "en carafe" and a selection of other good wines by the bottle. Very... More

Ate their market fish of the day, which was a grilled whole dorade with a few al dente vegetables on a red coulis, accompanied by a glass of organic white wine. Well prepared, fresh food for less than €20. I couldn't ask for better. Unlike many white wines, their's seemed to contain few or no sulphites.

Had our first lunch in Montpellier here, through recommendation. Not disappointed either, the menu was simple, but delicious. I had a classic onglet with shallots, and a delicious foie gras salad. Simple, but excellently executed. Very reasonable prices, good house wine and sat opposite a charming little square bustling with diners. Very enjoyable meal, and good value.

We stumbled on this place on our first night, trying to find somewhere to sit for a drink in preferably a square but not studenty or too formal. Lovely wine and friendly service. And even though we weren't that hungry as had a late lunch, eventually had some food, I went for the special, filit mignon which was very good,... More
