This Birstro sits on a square shared by multiple restaurants. The atmosphere is great. A great buzz. The food is perfect. With a modesty of ingredients they create lovely dishes. The staff takes their time in the positive sense of the word. Not once did I feel I was rushed. Great French food, definitely worth the visit of you are... More

We ate steak and duck at this place, both perfectly cooked. Wish my steak had some sauce with it and maybe some veggies. We've been eating a lot at this square and love to be here. Great service. Loved the dessert.

Visited for dinner with high hopes. Starter of salmon and anchovies was very nice but partner's starter of chèvre and vegetables was not freshly grilled. I had an average onglet of beef with home cooked chips. The other main was incorrect and there was a wait until the pork was served. We had asked for well done but it was... More

I've been here twice: cozy setting, amazing fresh food from the area, good service and good prices. I can say without a doubt that I had the best tuna steak of my life here.

We loved de indoor decoration, let aside the food and its presentation. At the heart of a lovely city, placed in a sunny square (with outdoor sitting option), we felt lucky to have found it. The waiter really cool also. I recommend.

the food was superb and the cheerful service was much appreciated. I choose the paella, which was completely different than the paella I enjoyed in Barcelona. The Montpellier dish was just as good even though the two were not at all alike. The portion was very generous and the price was more than fair

Bistrot Gourmand was recommended to us by our hotel and it was great! We ordered the burger, pork, and plenty of wine and all were excellent. The staff was very attentive and helpful. They even gave out shots after dinner :)

We ate here on a Sunday as many other places are closed. It had not been recommended to us so it was a lucky find. The food was absolutely excellent. All dishes on the menu form part of the formule rather than just 3 or 4 and all the food we ordered was good and the portions size was generous.... More

Our children chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday meal and we were not disappointed; it is a real gem and the food was authentic and absolutely delicious. Our waiter Max was exemplary in his service and kindness. We met the chef too as we wanted to thank him personally for the quality of the food. We spent a truly... More

We came back to this restaurant in Montpellier because I had eaten here in Sept. 2014 and had a great lunch - the "formule du jour" (lunch of the day). The Bistrot Gourmand shares a little square (la place de la Chapelle Neuve) with a few other restaurants - in the summer the tables run into each other from one... More
