I've tried over a dozen restaurants in a similar price range in Montpellier over the year I've been here and I wouldn't go back to most of them. Le Passé Composé is different. Two things make it stand out: the eclectic ambiance, orchestrated by the waiter, the cook, and the music they play; and the food, original and perfectly prepared. Their "terre et mer" - ie surf & turf - is a clever mix of marinated fish and scallops and half-cooked foie gras that I've seen nowhere else. They also have an appetizer of scallops tartare with vanilla - amazing! Not a single bad note to my taste. A great value for the price in downtown Montpellier. We'll go back. This restaurant should be on the to-go list of all food fans in Montpellier.
