“Already, looking forward to next visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

Our daughter is studying in Montpellier and living next to, the port Marianne area, so I have eaten at quite a few restaurants while visiting. This was my second experience at LA factory, and it even surpassed my first, which was a difficult feat. Quality/ price is excellent. A magnificent blend of tastes, and exquisitely prepared dishes, are their calling card. Main courses run in the 20 to 25€ range and each try has been a delight! Tonight was lobster cooked to perfection on a bed of delicious risotto , with a delectable sauce, lightly covering all! Left no traces! A nice ambiance on the terrace overlooking the basin , lacking only a little bit more light for reading the interesting menu. Already looking forward to our return visit!

“First review in English?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We were there on 6 September after having done a reconnaisance visit the day before to look at the menu. Just round the corner from the Port Marianne tram stop (lines 1 and 3). So easy to find. Got there before service started at 8pm but the crew (it's family run, they have another more traditional restuarant in nearby Lattes) made us welcome with drinks and we just sat and enjoyed the last rays of the evening sun on the terrace. The menu is innovative and interesting with a surprising mix of flavours and textures which all work very well. Perfectly cooked pave de boeuf and duck. For the price it is unusual for France because it is simply not formulaic. This goes for the desserts too which were not the usual "seen everywhere" mouse au chocolat etc. The decor is industrial style - very cool and contemporary. We were were told it's been open for six months. It deserves to remain open for a lot longer with cooking of this quality. Do give it a try.
