What a magnificent find - we were in Montpellier for our wedding anniversary and wanted something special - well this was it. We had wandered all around the old town and could not find anything that looked suitable and the only one we found on Tripadvisor was closed. We went into the Tourist Information office and scanned all their leaflets... More

Ate here with my local business host - it was delightful! A quiet and refined experience within a delightful space of ancient architecture. The gastronomic experience was superb: from my escargot starter, to the medaillon de veaux main, finishing with a financier du chocolat all accompanied by a lovely local wine --- it was all fantastic! Situated within the old... More

We decided to go the whole hog since La Diligence is such a special place so went for the Degustation menu - 5 courses with excellent wine for 65 Euro. Small eaters be warned; this meant 3 little versions per course so for main course, you get the chance to have pork, beef and lamb then as much cheese from... More

We ended up in La Diligence after an unlucky search for Lonely Planet rated restaurants Les Vignes (closed) and Tamarillos (nobody there). La Diligence is closely located to the Marche des Fleurs in an old Hotel Particuliers. We chose the five course menu for EUR 65 including wine! We had a great night: good food, great wines, friendly staff and... More

We booked on the day and by arriving relatively early (before 20:00 is an unusual starting time in Montpellier) we were able to choose where to sit. There is an internal courtyard with a high tower above which on the inight we were there wold have been a little too windy...on a stiflingly hot evening, though, the inside may get... More

I am French and my partner is Irish and I wanted to bring him to a genuine French restaurant which could surprise him. We both took the 38 euros meal with an aperitif. Splendid. From the setting is an old hotel particulier in the inside courtyard to the service and the food: nothing negative. The waiter and waitress were very... More

a wonderful experience; a meal in a gothic arcitectural setting - a 5 course meal. When we looked outside to the munu we found it a broad choice and decided to try it. The real surprice is that each course has 3 options and that you don't have to choose, you get all 3 of them. It was a wonderfull... More

La Diligence is situated in the heart of the old city and offers splendid surroundings in vaulted rooms. The menu is rather limited, but offers a choice of terroir inspired dishes with a modern twist. The quality of the food is good and the price is fair. The cheese trolley is fine. The wine list offers a wide choice of... More

This restaurant is located in one of the lovely streets of the old city. When you push the door, the cosy atmosphere of the vaulted dining room, the stupendous collection of whisky brands displayed on the various shelves and the nice welcome from the staff set the tone for an excellent dining experience. The three-course menu of the day was... More
