We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and thought the service was friendly and efficient. Set menu has plenty of choice. The desserts were particularly delicious.

Really poor, little flavour & inept something was badly wrong here - from bland saucing of the house special to a cold heavy set chocolate fondant? Check before you go

While not the easiest place to find, we enjoyed meandering the side streets of Montpellier to find this charming restaurant. Apparently we were not the only ones who knew to look for this restaurant - so be sure to reserve. Food & wine were very...More

Located in the historical center, it is a bit hard to find. However, once you're there, you're in for a treat. You only have half a dozen or so choices as entrees or main dishes, but each one is prepared with great quality. Each dish...More

Great decor, lots of character, good food at a reasonable price, friendly relaxed service. Flambee at table looked great, pain perdou dessert was a great finish to a fantastic meal out.
