Great location on a large square, superfast and friendly service and well priced. We had the fish of the day which was perfect. Wine list is nothing special...

On a cold, dark winter's nght in England, memories of this sort of meal are exactly what you need to cheer yourself up. The Bistrot Gourmand is a buzzy little restaurant situated in a beautiful tree-filled square in the heart of the lovely city of Montpellier. The evening we went was warm, after a baking hot day and the air... More

We went to Montpellier for an extended weekend and visited le Gourmand for dinner on our third night there. We chose for a menu with starter, main course and dessert. They offer a choice of different option for each course with enough variety to find something for every taste. The prices were totally ok for what you get and the... More

Disappointed with this place. We went for lunch partly attracted by the 15 euro menu advertised on the chalkboards. But it turns out to have the set menu you need to choose among a small number of dishes, so in the end it cost us a lot more. This limitation is not explained in writing on the menu or on... More

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
