The food needs improvement ..... The starter fish soup was missing a good taste (looked like diluted). Not all main plates were good (fish and chips were very English > so taste-less). And the ultimate deception was the "cafe au lait" which was a coffee...More

'When in Rome...' is a good rule of thumb, so in Montpellier one should eat fish! Having read "36 Hours in Montpellier" (NY Times, Aug.12,2012) in preparation, we had to find La Morue, down the smallest streets in the old part of the city. (the...More
