It was surprising seeing several negative comments as we had a really good meal
In a nice setting, in a small square.....and only a short walk from our hotel which was near the Place de Comedie

On our Sunday night visit It seemed mainly frequented by locals, and not a "tourist trap".....no spare tables to be seen
Food was excellent and reasonably priced.......service was well paced
We had a great rib eye steak and sea bream.....the menu was varied with plenty of options, as well as a number of "specials"

Ate here with friends as it looked lively. Service was slow. Pig trotters starter were the highlights. Main courses - onglet de bouf tough - cassoulet appeared to consist of mostly kidneys - top of the pepper pot came off so meal had to be replaced - then offered a proper pepper grinder. Typical tourist trap - relying on location rather than good food. Far better places to be found in Montpellier.

We had a very good meal (onglet) on 3 September. Friendly staff and good ambiance - outside in the Square. Not hugely pricey by French standards, but probably a bit more than you'd pay in the UK for similar - though the portions were generous. Definitely one to keep on your list.

We went here for our first meal in Montpellier having read good reviews on here. It wasn't bad as such, just didn't live up to expectations and was rather pricey. I think you can find much better places in the old town if you search a little bit - definitely try Bouchon St Roch. Much better value and far superior and more imaginative food.

I had dinner here last Sunday. The food was very good and the staff were attentive, quick and polite.
