Lunch may be cheaper, but the three-course prix-fixe dinner is a certified EXPERIENCE. French classics are cooked with a haute twist, and the results are absolutely mind-blowing. The tiny serving room also guarantees attentive service.

They offer two menus, each with a choice of starter, main dish and dessert, all mouthwateringly tempting. But being a non meat eater I went for the crab starter and the sea bream, both beautifully presented, delicious and memorable. I can still recall the taste 24 hours later. I can't speak highly enough of this small but refined restaurant, definitely... More

We booked into this restaurant on a recommendation from friends without realising its fame. We felt like members of a select club while we watched people being turned away all evening. It is a small place where the decor, the menu and even the music all complement one another, being stylish but understated. There is no need to opt for... More

Guided by very positive comments from Trip Advisor, my wife and I had dinner at this restaurant recently. As is mentioned, Rue Fours des Flames is situated in the old city not too far from the tram stop in Place de la Comedie. It is small inside with probably about 24 covers and a small seating area outside in the... More

We completely enjoyed our evening at L'Idee Saveurs, very friendly owner & great food. We chose the 35euro menu, prawn salad with a subtle curry flavoured sauce, 1 x fish 1x bull, both delicious served with vegetables, finishing with a delightful chocolate mousse cake which was served in 3 pieces.... excellent bottle of white wine for around 25euro's.... excellent value...

Third visit to Montpellier in a year and the best meal yet - no mean feat in this city. A tiny restaurant in a quiet street that just does what it's supposed to - fine food, good service and lovely ambience. Book well ahead - we could only get one night out of five we offered, and had it been... More

We came here for my birthday while in Montpelier and had a wonderful night. We went to the restaurant a few days before to book as we wanted to be sure to get a table. The service was very friendly and welcoming. There were two set price menus to choose from which made it nice and simple. The food was... More

Pre-book because you will not get on! The immediate reception is diffident but immediately warms. The 22 seater restaurant works well on a first come first served basis. The food is delicious and imaginative, well presented and authentic. At £40 a head inc. wine this is really good value for excellent fare cooked by someone who really knows what he... More

We only had one evening in Montpellier for a birthday celebration and so did quite a lot of research on restaurants. We chose L'Idee Saveurs based on good reviews here and were really happy with our decision. We had a fantastic meal and were not disappointed with any aspect. The menu isn't extensive but there is enough choice to cater... More

A small restaurant of about 22seats, with nice modern design. A menu at 24euros and a menu at 34. Each equally wonderful. Warm, friendly hostess. Few choices on each menu which allows the chef to concentrate on creating a few wonderful dishes. Every plate deserves to have a picture taken but I did not have my camera with me. Not... More
