Not for the faint-hearted, but wonderful dining

This is not an inexpensive restaurant, so not for those on a budget, nor for the faint-hearted, but a wonderful dining experience that never missed a beat. The food was excellent and the service impeccable. This was no "cuisine minceur" portions either ... servings were extremely generous... read more

There's no doubt this is a restaurant for a special event. Expensive, highly professional attentive service with charm and knowledge. There are many extra little courses, which means one is probably eating way too much but without noticing. My scallop brochettes looked beautiful but the warm brochettes sat a little uneasily on the cold plate of fruit, my main course... More

There is no denying that you are in a top restaurant when you enter Le Jardin des Sens. Even with the downsizing of Michelin stars, its one of the best dining experiences ever!

We recently enjoyed one of the best dinners, accompanied by the best possible service in this absolutely amazing restaurant. The food was imaginative, beautiful, sublime and the service was perfection in all it's form.

Being a bit of a foodie my fiancée treated us to a ‘gourmet’ experience on a trip to the South of France this July. At first I felt that it was all a bit pretentious and the presentation was getting too far removed from the ‘tastes’. However, as the meal progressed I really got into the art and skill of... More

We stop in Montpellier once a year just to go to this restaurant. It keeps up the standard every year and the dishes are always beautiful as well as tasty. Yes, it is expensive, but it is rare to find such good food anywhere.

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. The prices are exceptionally high. Where there is no doubt, this is a spectacular restaurant, the prices are what you would pay for top restaurants in... More

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
