This meal was the highlight of our trip to Montpellier. The cooking and finesse of the dishes was of the highest order and the wine pairings included with the menu degustation were excellent. If you are in Town then please do go - good value at €196 as well.

Very nice location in an late medieval surrounding. Excellent food and courteous but friendly welcome and service. More than value for money. One of the many restaurants we visited during our 8 day stay and to my experience the best food.

We reserved (by email) from the States before we left home, based on top reviews in TripAdvisor. The exterior doesn't look like much -- we wouldn't have been drawn in if we'd just been wandering by. We would have missed an awesome dinner! The experience was top-quality from the first minute to the last (two hours later). Great service, excellent... More

The beautiful vaulted ceiling is nicely lit in this formal but unfussy room. We chose the 39 euro dinner, with 3 courses. Enough choice. The sommelier was friendly and helpfully steered us to a local well-priced wine. Everything is really done well, without any pretension. The best kind of French dining experience.

You obviously do not get there to eat a lot. Nice but relatively expensive food. Service was great and the variety of whiskys at the end left us speechless!

Booked this restaurant after failing at several others-either full or on holiday first week in September. The setting was lovely, beautiful vaulted ceilings and chandeliers. The food too was delicious. We had Decouverte menu-39 euros. Would highly recommend for a 'special' occasion.

I ate there twice during the three weeks I just spent teaching in Montpellier. I did not have a reservation either time, so I had to sit inside. Let me start with my standard warning about restaurants in Montpellier in summer: it is HOT, and these places are not good for lunch in the scorching daylight. They are OK in... More
