Reviewed January 21, 2012

Super cool place to meet friends, listen to some great music and sip some fabulous wines! Their platters are perfect for sharing with the table...Autour du cochon, les fromages ou Autour de la mer were our favorites.

“Les Estivales off at the Trinque Fougasse”
Reviewed August 5, 2011

I have just gotten back home from a super dinner and wine tasting at the Trinque Fougasse. During the les estivales festival in Montpellier during which the comedie turns into a great wine tasting venue, the Trinque Fougasse - a bit off the centre - offers a superb wine tasting and tapas night on their terrasse. The deal is excellent: for 25,- eu you can taste wine from selected wine-growers and have tapas, starting with their home made fougasse bread stuffed with cheese, followed by a plate with delicious salamis, then mussels. We could not finish the next big plate of grilled beef, pork, duck and calamaris and finally finished the meal with goat cheese, orange sponge cake and chocolate cake.
The wine was an excellent selection, the wine-growers nice and friendly. And fine swing music was provided by a live band to this truly lovely evening. Definately worth going.

I've been coming to this restaurant for years now. At lunch time they do a very good value menu at €16 for 3 courses while in the evening you can enjoy a number of planches based around the sea, the pig or cheese, or a selection of tapas. One of the more original aspects of the Trinque Fougasse is how you choose your wine. After ordering your food, you get up and take you table number to the bar where you can taste a number of wines so make the right choice. You can order by the glass or bottle, or half bottle if available.
In the evenings the little stage inside is occupied by musicians of many types - jazz, musique du monde, swing, and so on.
There is a sizeable terrace, much of it shaded, outside with high tables and low tables. When you reserve online you can decide where you want to sit and whether you want to sit up on bar stools or down on chairs.
The service is efficient, and friendly and the atmosphere is convivial. It's a really agreeable place to spend a lunchtime or an evening.
