Went with another couple. It's 50 kms away from Montpellier where I'm based. Well worth doing.

There's a French expression "un parcours sans faute." It means "they didn't put a foot wrong," in other words close to perfection. We didn't go for the most comprehensive menu because it would have taken too long and we would have emerged more than full, I imagine. We took the next one down... read more

Pillars of staff are in place for over 20 years ...... if the house was poor they would have left long ago. I tested the kitchen Michel Kaiser in 1995 and has grown steadily !!!!

We had a lovely meal here, served by attentive staff who were very welcoming. It is what you should expect. The food was exceptional, and beautifully presented. The cheese board and sweet choices are not quite what you would dream of, one comes in a wardrobe and the other in a sideboard - not telling you which. It is not... More

Off the beaten track outside Nimes, this is a restaurant worth seeking out. The dining rooms are elegant and the terrace and garden absolutely glorious. Go in summer and start with champagne under the hundred year old almond trees while you nibble on exceptional amuse bouches. The cooking is very worthy of the two Michelin stars it holds with several... More

We enjoyed a superb meal, beautifully presented but marred at the last minute by a crass piece of bad service. When we came to pay the bill three separate credit cards were refused by the machine which caused us some obvious consternation. We were left to call the credit card company, to discover that there was no problem with the... More

I ate at Chez Alexandre (2 couples) in October. It was a memorable experience through and through. One of the finest meals I have ever had. The ambiance is absolutely perfect. We started our lunch with cocktails out doors in their beautiful garden where we were presented with the first of many amuse bouche. After our aperitif we were brought... More

This is the finest restaurant I have eaten in, tucked away in Nimes. We ate here as a party of four and enjoyed impeccable service and world class food courtesy of Michel Kayser. We will be returning to Nimes simply to eat here again.

There is discipline and then there is perfection. This restaurant succeeds on every level. The staff is visibly proud and excited to be presenting the chef's creations and in pampering the guests. A magnificent setting outside of Nimes in a lovely home. Beautiful gardens surround the restaurant then you enter and are warmly received by the staff. Chef and owner,... More

Michel Kayser at Alexandre continues to impress with superbly prepared food, in his elegant and recently redecorated Garons restaurant. Standards this high are immensely hard to maintain, but the food here remains almost faultless. Notwithstanding a few very minor inconsistencies, the textures and flavours here are superbly judged and executed. We hope that Michel Kayser will continue to follow the... More
