EXPENSIVE, but very good

impeccable service, brilliant sommelier and wonderful food, but prepare yourself for a barrage of 'extra' courses, amuse bouche, avant dessert, etc etc, it gets really tedious after a while, I found it over stimulating.

It lives up to expectations, but comes with a price tag. We had the decouverte menu, with two bottles of wine and it was probably the best dinner I ever had. Come on an empty stomach as you'll get 6 different kinds of dessert only.

We use to travel a lot around the world, went to hundred of places in many countries. However this is the best restaurant we have ever been. Ok, we took a very expensive menu with more than 10 dishes, desserts. It took us 4 hours to enjoy it. Cannot describe it in details but everything is excellent, the atmosphere, the... More

A very high-level restaurant, and very posh indeed, maybe even snobbish, at least so it seemed by the look of the guests. The waiters were really nice, they did a perfect job!! We had the lunch menu, and the food was really nice, but it just was not my favorite. Still I can see that the kitchen did a great... More

Food is most important to me in a restaurant and I was a little disappointed. Had the 90 Euro menu including wine. The mixed seafood appetizer was nice. The main course of steak was okay but snow peas over cooked. The setting and restaurant appearance were attractive, looking out over a garden. The service was attentive but somewhat pretentious.

Well cooked, well presented and delicious meal but pricey. The glass garden room is very pleasant and the staff well trained but it lacks 'je ne sais quoi' to give it 5 stars.

I have been in France for four weeks and in Montpellier for two. I have eaten very well in Paris and in Montpellier. But my meal tonight was an excruciating and disappointing experience. It is hot here, and the restaurants that do not use fans, ac, or water mist systems will be too hot. But a hotel restaurant with a... More

I think Michelin has this rating right at one star. The cuisine is excellent, but not sublime. However, MIchelin starts are not the be-all and end-all of restaurant dining: the whole experience at Le Jardin des Sens is lovely and well worth it, from the beautiful terraced dining room with its views of the garden and pool to the attentive...

From all tables you have a beautiful view of the Jardin des Sens. And the service by the tables is at a very high level. It is highly recommended.

It is so nice to revisit a place and find that it has maintained if not improved. The Jardin has done that. The staff are helpful and friendly, food is excellent, the rooms very comfortable and the Garden itself is today, very beautiful. Sadly they are closing at the end of the year and moving to as yet an unknown... More
