Best restaurant we visited while visiting friends in Montpellier. The restaurant is cosy, with pleasant background music that does not get in the way of conversation with friends. The staff and owner are very knowledgeable on the wine and foods they serve. The price of a three course meal and wine is excellent for this area of France.

Went here a few years ago and the food was quality, going back to the south of France in April and will be definitely coming back!

This is one of the best restaurants in Montpellier. Fresh, seasonal produce, friendly service, and a lovely cosy atmosphere. At lunchtime they do a platter with a selection of delicious tarts and various mouthwatering accompaniments, which always comprises fresh products and very generous portions! The dinner time menu is excellent too, with specialities from the region, the duck in particular... More

A nice little restaurant with attentive staff that know a lot about their food and wine, which is a must for me! Even though it was busy during lunch time (due to their inexpensive menu - around € 12 - 15 for a full plate), they haven't been long before to sit us and offer us to take our order,... More

Choose this place for our first lunch at Montpellier and were stunned with friendly greetings of restaurant owner who colorfully explained us the menu. And the frequent guest from next table passionately helped him with english translation and personal recommendations as well. Choose lentil soup, foie gras and duck. Everything were amazing.

Had lunch twice at Au Bonheur des Tartes on our recent visit and it was worth the trip up from Pezenas. The south west cuisine is fantastic, in particular the basque pork sausages and the confit du canard. Whilst we didn't try them, the salads with the house made pies looked fantastic. Next time! The accompaniments with the main courses... More

We were lucky enough to stumble on this restaurant by accident. Great regional food, a little out of the ordinary. The restaurant is small and friendly and the owner went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our meal. Quite exceptional.

And the food was truely excellent!!! The staff very smiling and they offered very good service. The ambient was original and we will be returning there very very soon. The only minus is that the pasta that accompanies the main dish is pretty heavy to eat with meat, but is was still tasty.

We had dinner here on a cool September evening. The owner speaks very good English since his father was an English teacher. We mangled our French and he sorted it out. Antoine, the young chef, does an excellent job of preparing Southwestern French food in a very delicious way. The service was fast and attentive,the food great and the ambiance... More

Encouraged by the wonderful TripAdvisor reviews I tried several times to go to this place. It is located on a beautiful alley next to Maison Heidelberg, a German school. Several times I went for lunch and was plainly turned away because they don't want to waste a table for two on a single customer. When I finally managed to eat... More

Bonsoir! I am the owner of the restaurant. Hard to answer, because I am not sure that you had lunch in my place. We ABSOLUTELY don't refuse solo diners; some of them left wonderful reviews on this site!!! You are talking about salads and quiches, as our neighbour does, 10cm away. We cook pies (not only quiches) and southwest products,... More
