Took my husband here for his birthday. We loved the experience, it is expensive but worth the extra spending. Our main was delicious we both had the fillet. So so good. Good selection of wine. Lovely evening with very professional waiters.

We had this restaurant also recommended by the staff of the Pullman. You can have a table in the garden, but be aware that you take some mosquito repellant with you! The 3 course menu (€ 37,-) is an excellent option which I do recommend. The wine list is giving you many choices in the price range you want to... More

This is such a special find. It's situated down the cutest little street in Montpellier. I was met with such a friendly greeting from all the staff. We were sat in the most beautiful little garden (hence the name). I had a glass of champagne to start and it was the best champagne I had ever tasted. My husband and... More

I ate there three times for dinner, and one lunch while teaching in Montpellier. At one point the waiter told me that I should know the menu by heart; I pretty much did. Service and food were consistently good. The setting is great: Two beautiful terraces enclosed by hedges and covered by tall trees; a serene and beautiful environment for... More

Extremely pleasant courtyard setting, excellent service and exceptional food quality. Together with very attentive and unassuming staff, definitely recommended. One of the highlights of our two weeks holiday in Montpelllier.

This was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel, and it did not disappoint. We elected to opt for the Petit Jardin Set Menu. (A menu in English was available on request, though it was easy enough to understand the description of the dishes in French). For 53 euros, this allowed 3 choices for each course. After a... More

The back garden seating area is gorgeous. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the food is out of this world. Very fresh and creative. It was a nice touch to have live music when we dined there too!
