Got in late on a Friday night and went with my daughter, manager was very nice and unflappable, food was good and the service prompt. €150 for three with a fixed price menu with wine; it was good value and a very pleasant setting. Great place - go if you get the opportunity. We saw the Garden but weather just... More

The location, atmosphere, staff and food are all wonderful! Have eaten here many times and have never been let down. Sitting in the outdoor garden is the best place to be when the weather is nice. Really extensive wine menu.

This restaurant is near Place de la Canourgue which is lovely but can easily be missed. Ambience very good, great local wine list, food tres bonne and the service was good. We found it late in our visit to Montpellier so could not go back which was a bit disappointing. Rating 15/20.

The restaurant is part of a Relais et Chateaux hotel and looks very appealing. We sat down twice in the garden of Le Petit Jardin. Quietly situated in Montpellier. Once you sit down here, you don't have the feeling being in a large city. We went there twice as we very much liked it. First time for lunch, second for... More

Le Petit Jardin stands out in the crowd of restaurants in Montpellier.The food was excellent, best dinner experience I've had in the city. Service was friendly, professional and fast. Lovely relaxed atmosphere in the outside courtyard. Could be a good idea to make a reservation beforehand as it's a popular place.

We were too late to get reservations for the dinner, but they had an outdoor seating areas that served tapas which was even better for our family. The tapas were amazing and had some wonderful combinations. To top it off they have an outdoor cooking area where the chefs prepare the meals while you dine in the outside garden and... More

We had passed many busy restaurants in the centre of Montpellier as we did a brief walk around the streets before an important meeting. We were hungry but only had 45 minutes to eat. Having passed many restaurants where the food looked middling to bad and been told another was too busy, we stumbled along the back street of Jean-Jacques... More

Best meals of my 10-day trip to Montpellier and Paris, France. Ten of us from a Shakespeare conference dined together in the garden on Thurs., 27 June, with a reservation. It's a gorgeous, quiet setting for a leisurely evening meal. Also ideal for a romantic dining experience. Agree with the review below that the meals tasted delicious and were aesthetically... More

We visited this restaurant to celebrate our marriage anniversary and as it was summer we dinned outside. A beautiful place with a great ambiance. The service was excellent, something you don't usually find in Montpellier. That same night there was also a wedding reception, so there was a lot of people, but nevertheless we were very well taken care of.... More
