Enjoyed a delicious dinner here. The staff were excellent and did very well in explaining the menu to us in great detail in English. We had the 37 euro menu which included starter, main and dessert or cheese. We were also treated to an amuse bouche, sorbet and addition desserts with our coffee. Foie gras with beef was a lovely...

A beautiful restaurant with medieval arches looking onto an open courtyard with a huge whiskey inventory. The greeting, service and atmosphere were extraordinary. The aperitif and wine delicious. But I hate to say that unfortunately the food was just okay - we each ordered 3 course 25 Euro menus. We started well, the olives served with the aperitif and the... More

I went here as part of a group visiting a local business and was taken for a meal here by our hosts. The meal was a set menu but was superb, i believe it is called the Menu dégustation and each course was accompanied by a local wine designed to accompany the food. We finished of with the choice of... More

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
