We enjoyed a good meal here. The prices are very competitive - 17.50 Euros for a main and dessert (or main and starter), both of which were delicious if not absolutely top notch. The servings are not massive, but perfectly adequate and well cooked. We ate in the little courtyard outside - a nice, quiet atmosphere, surrounded by the tall... More

Pleasant venue. Very competitive pricing which can't be achieved without making some compromises but everything we had was fine. Smallish wine list of which some are hugely expensive but the more readable offerings are very good and affordable

Eating in a small courtyard, slightly unusually because of the height of the buildings, but pleasant enough. Reasonable choices for each course, but we thought the starters over-elaborate. Wine is charged by how much you drink from a bottle. Friendly and pleasant staff.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and thought the service was friendly and efficient. Set menu has plenty of choice. The desserts were particularly delicious.

On a quiet evening mid week in October we had no problem getting a table for two in the courtyard. Service was OK early in the evening but slowed down a lot as the place filled up, as it seems one of the two young ladies was also cooking. The food was a bit below average with little flavour and...

Very good value, offering decent (not outstanding) food at a good price, avoiding the temptation to be a straightforward tourist rip-off. And what a lovely courtyard setting! Starters had the edge over the mains, but this is good well presented. Go there

I spent two months in Montpellier this summer, and I ate at this restaurant multiple times for both lunch and dinner. It would be hard to duplicate the good food, nice ambiance and the very reasonable prices that this place offers. At lunch is not that busy, but it is an excellent place to enjoy a two-course meal for about... More

Difficult to find, but worth it. Once you are in the little square you feel truly out of the bustle of the Montpellier streets (we were there during the sales, so you can imagine). Service was efficient, friendly, and tolerant of my schoolboy French. We took the standard 19€ menu, with a nicely flavoured fish served "paella style", and three... More

Really poor, little flavour & inept something was badly wrong here - from bland saucing of the house special to a cold heavy set chocolate fondant? Check before you go
