I have eaten here a dozen times over the years and have always had a brilliant time.The food is first class and always innovative. The chefs menu is a gem whatever meat appears. Olivier is a real showman, friendly and enthusiastic, aq gem of a place.

I took a group of friends to this Iconic restaurant the 22nd of September. Once again Olivier and his team excelled themselves and gave us all an evening to remember. The service, food, wines and the table layout was second to none. I understand Olivier will be moving to Beziers sometime in the new year ; a big loss for... More

O Bontemps deserves the distinction of a Michelin 5-star restaurant! Olivier is the chef extraordinaire who greets you with his dynamic passionate energy and loves tantalizing his "guests"! We left all menu choices to him and were not disappointed. The food presentations were a feast for the eyes as much as satisfying as the BEST MEAL EVER! Continued success Olivier...... More

I have eaten all over the world and of the 10 best meals I've ever had more than 5 of them have been eaten here. I ate there twice in August and both meals were memorable occasions. The really sad thing is that this restaurant will close on February 14th 2016. The reasons for this may be many but what... More

I have enjoyed lunch and dinner in this very good restaurant. Order the beef - it's not only the best on the menu, it's served with such an aplomb

We are here on a Friday lunchtime in August as a family of four. Restaurant was reasonably busy. Very friendly service and very child friendly. No choice menu but the waiter/chef asked us beforehand what our likes/dislikes are. We all had an excellent pre-starter of mussels with a carbonara sauce, then razor clams for starter and excellent beef for main.... More

Came here with my fiancée and her parents near the end of our holiday in France. They had been the year previously and had raved about it so we decided to go and try it for ourselves. Came here last Wednesday 22nd July. For it being a Wednesday night the restaurant was still very busy with a mix of locals... More
