Great dinner with friends

8 of us ate in the bar area and had a fun time. The vibe is lovely and fun. Service was good. It seems that the bar menu is less expensive than the restaurant but the food was still excellent. We had a great experience and would definitely go back.

We ate here twice in our 5 day stay, and thoroughly enjoyed the delicious food, the kindly wait staff and the lovely atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend.

Went for dinner. A la carte prices are very high but menus around 35 and 55 e are a better deal. Had the full menu and started with foie gras with smoked eel--a combo I love but the eel was minimal and the accompaniments all way too sweet and overpowering for the foie gras. It would have benefited from some... More

After a train ride from Lyon to Montpellier (10th Sept), we checked ourselves into the Pullman. We're hungry and wanting a quick bite to eat, which the concierge seemed to interpret as a 'proper' bite to eat. He's on the phone and booked us into Le Petit Jardin, whips out a map and scribbles directions, and we're on our way.... More

Friends took us out for a farewell dinner, assuring us that this is a special place for many locals. They were right, it was posh, proper and luxurious. A reservation would be handy as it seemed quite popular. Lots of diners were dressed up for the occasion. No doubt a great place for an anniversary dinner or that romantic proposal!... More

The waiter was completely clueless. He did to be asked 3 times for everything. All the couples in our outside seating area were exasperated with the service. It took over an hour for each table o get our plats after our entrees. Only the bus person was helpful in getting us bread, water, and wine poured. We went there on... More

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
