Not only is the setting for this restaurant stunning, in an arched room with an instant feel of quality about it, but the food and service match it. We had the menu degustation with the accompanying wines and it was superb. Highly recommended. we will be back for another visit at the earliest opportunity!

In contrast with so many glowing reviews we were very disappointed by La Diligence. We chose the tasting menu with matched wines and felt the dishes offered were pretentious and not well executed. The seemingly lazy kitchen overcooked the guinea fowl, neglected to correct the consistancy of the sauce accompanying the fish and for an expensive restaurant presumably seeking to... More

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!
