We went on a Sunday evening, which is probably a quiet time in Montpellier. The service was fine and the food was good but not great. A bit pricier than in the city, but The location overlooking the river is a bit nicer.

We loved the service here; we got to sit on the patio with a view of the River. I ordered a glass of (Bordeaux) Rouge and really enjoyed it The antipasti platter includes a selection of ham, veggies, roasted peppers in garlic oil, seasoned olives and grilled eggplant with parmesan... everything very tasty and delicious. The pizza aux 5 fromages... More

Eat out here one night with my colleague. Service was quick and friendly but the food was nothing special really. Maybe it's a French thing, but a woman had a small dog in the table next to us which I found off putting. I can even remember what I had, it was anonymous

We went there because close to the hotel and it was too late and we were too tired. The area has a lot of restaurants and bars. Many of the restaurants, including this one, are chains. The food is OK, but nothing extraordinary. Very standardized (normal for a chain you would say). The (fast) speed of serving did not convince... More

Everytime we go there, we go for the all you can eat beef carpaccio: "Carpaccio de boeuf a volonte" with French fries. We are never disappointed. Chaque fois que nous y allons, nous prenons le carpaccio a volonte et nous ne sommes jamais decus!!!

Despite some critiques, we chose to eat one evening in August. To our surprise, the food was quite good, and the pasta was not bad at all; you need only ask for al dente. The Milanese veal was very good: tasty, tender. And the wine choice - a Montepulciano d'Abruzzo - was superb, and reasonable. And, as noted, the service... More

Unbelievable panacotta! A real must to have if you eat at this restaurant. Great wait staff, very busy. The carpaccio is fantastic as well and comes in several varieties (ie: salmon, beef, etc) I think there was even an all you can eat carpaccio menu!

We chose this place because it was close to the hotel. Food was mediocre for a French restaurant. Service was good though. Italian theme.
