the food was superb and the cheerful service was much appreciated. I choose the paella, which was completely different than the paella I enjoyed in Barcelona. The Montpellier dish was just as good even though the two were not at all alike. The portion was very generous and the price was more than... read more

Bistrot Gourmand was recommended to us by our hotel and it was great! We ordered the burger, pork, and plenty of wine and all were excellent. The staff was very attentive and helpful. They even gave out shots after dinner :)

We ate here on a Sunday as many other places are closed. It had not been recommended to us so it was a lucky find. The food was absolutely excellent. All dishes on the menu form part of the formule rather than just 3 or 4 and all the food we ordered was good and the portions size was generous.... 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

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 with no fuss. A pleasant place... 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

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
