My wife and I, together with her cousin and husband ate here on the Saturday before Christmas. I chose this restaurant partly because the menus inform you about gluten in case of allergies. We were greeted in a very friendly manner, one of the staff is English but has lived in France for several years. All four of us chose... More

Last week on saturday lunch I visited this restaurant with my family and we enjoyed the meal alot. I took the menu 36 including the magret de canard and was perfectly cooked. the waiters were so friendly as well and not like the traditional arrogant french waiter that I met few days ago in a renowned restaurant in Paris. Highly... More

We had a very enjoyable meal here, artichokes and chorizo for starter, and for main the best pork dish I've had in a long time. The wine list was full of locally sourced wines, and the red we had was superb. The service was also excellent, and the waiters happily switched to speaking English once we'd exhausted our own French... More

For my last night in Montpellier my daughter's fiancée suggested this restaurant. We opted for the 35 euro menu which turned out to be great. The wine list was extensive but heavily weighted towards local vineyards of which my knowledge was extremely limited-Alexis directed me to a region and I selected a medium priced (55 Euro) wine. When the waiter... More

We went exactly a week ago and it has honestly been my favorite meal, after 5 years living in France. They have two "menus" - one for around 35€ and one for around 45€. You cannot go wrong with either. My guests and I all agreed that it was an amazing meal...and we are all a little critical to say... More

Food is average. Environment is pleasant at lovely garden. A bit difficult to find at a narrow street.

This is an excellent restaurant with a very unique outdoor garden with a great atmosphere. All the staff not only come across as pleasant but seem to genuinely love their work. The food from starters through to desserts is A1. The wine list is suitable for all pockets from 24 euro to whatever you would like to pay. There is... More

Having the good fortune of looking down on the outdoor terrace of this restaurant from my hotel room next door, my interest was piqued by the many diners who, night after night, seemed to be having a wonderful time. Finally, I went myself for Sunday lunch and had the three course meal. Each course had about four options. Before they... More
