My wife and I enjoyed an very good meal here. Service was excellent, prices were reasonable for Montpellier old town. The restaurant has macaroni cheese as its signature vegetable! Whilst we enjoyed it on the night we were there I'm not sure I would want it every time. That may also explain why we did not need to book.

Great food, good prices, eat there. They gave my wife the English menu which had the great quote at the bottom: "Sorry the wine list is still in French, it is too much trouble to put it in the computer". The meals were hearty and the main featured great macroni and cheese on the side which I wish we had... More

Delightful little cafe, bar restaurant that makes a great deal of its connections with the southwest of France. Its main line of food is delicious home cooked tartlets with a variety of toppings served with substantial and imaginative salads containing chick peas with cumin, couscous, slow roasted fennel dressed with olive oil and lemon juice, tomatoes, roasted courgettes accompanied on...

I loved everything about this tiny restaurant on a narrow street - the quirky decor, the classy mood music, the cheery and knowledgeable staff who are plainly passionate about their 'food of the south west' ethos and the hearty food which made no concessions to modern 'delicate presentation' trends. Starter of onion and olive 'pizza' topped with minced rabbit was... More

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
