Old-Fashioned Fine French Restaurant

I ate there twice during the three weeks I just spent teaching in Montpellier. I did not have a reservation either time, so I had to sit inside. Let me start with my standard warning about restaurants in Montpellier in summer: it is HOT, and these places are not good for lunch in the scorching... read more

You obviously do not get there to eat a lot. Nice but relatively expensive food. Service was great and the variety of whiskys at the end left us speechless!

Everything is fabulous : located close the street Aiguillerie in the old town , la Diligence is in a lovely historical hotel. You enter the place through a fantastic selection of malt whiskies.... fabulous !!!!! Seated under superb vaults, hosted by a very caring and smiling staff who propose some menus ( 21 or 25 ) or "à la carte... More

Booked this restaurant after failing at several others-either full or on holiday first week in September. The setting was lovely, beautiful vaulted ceilings and chandeliers. The food too was delicious. We had Decouverte menu-39 euros. Would highly recommend for a 'special' occasion.

Nice courtyard setting (mating pigeons overhead allowing!). However, service extremely amateurish, and prices high. Will not recommend it to anyone.

We came across this restaurant when strolling the little back streets of Montpellier and what a find! We didn't have a reservation and the outside courtyard was fully booked, but we were able to eat inside. The food was wonderful, the interior decor very different and the service excellent. Fine dining at its best, with food presented beautifully. A fantastic... More

Given the prices we opted for starting with main meal... More

The restaurant interior is beautiful with arches and old world charm! The dishes are beautifully presented and delicious! The fruit dessert soup we had that day was unexpectedly simply delightful! The wines are also well paired! The owner though is a whisky collector and has a impressive display! The wait staff was attentive. Recommended for a fine dining experience!

this was fine dining at its best.The waiting staff were very aimiable and the food was an explosion of flavours with sauces to compliment perfectly each dish e.g. the halibut. The "meli-melo" of veg was --wow!! My wife's fruit dessert was out of this world. We enjoyed little extras like an amuse-bouche and a cleansing sorbet between courses plus extras... More
