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

It was surprising seeing several negative comments as we had a really good meal In a nice setting, in a small square.....and only a short walk from our hotel which was near the Place de Comedie On our Sunday night visit It seemed mainly frequented by locals, and not a "tourist trap".....no spare tables to be seen Food was excellent...

Ate here with friends as it looked lively. Service was slow. Pig trotters starter were the highlights. Main courses - onglet de bouf tough - cassoulet appeared to consist of mostly kidneys - top of the pepper pot came off so meal had to be replaced - then offered a proper pepper grinder. Typical tourist trap - relying on location... More

We had a very good meal (onglet) on 3 September. Friendly staff and good ambiance - outside in the Square. Not hugely pricey by French standards, but probably a bit more than you'd pay in the UK for similar - though the portions were generous. Definitely one to keep on your list.

We went here for our first meal in Montpellier having read good reviews on here. It wasn't bad as such, just didn't live up to expectations and was rather pricey. I think you can find much better places in the old town if you search a little bit - definitely try Bouchon St Roch. Much better value and far superior... More

walking around in Montpellier we found this little square - and a terras under the trees. We were welcomed by the "patron". We ate an outsyanding menu for 22€ (starter & main) composed of regional and French specialities. A very good meal and an exceptionally friendly service

I was traveling on business last month and happened upon this really good restaurant with some rough guidance from my hotel that this square was a good destination for finding restaurants. The service was excellent and everything I ordered was great. I would certainly return if given a chance.

We have used this restuarant a couple of times when in Montpellier. The food is excellent, in the main very traditional French food extremely well cooked. But what I really like are their burgers....which come with a large slice of foie gras! What a treat. The outside terrace is really lively, with other restuarants around it; and in autumn the...

Good for special occasions. Not an obvious choice due to its location- a bit away from the centre of town.
