Staff had a really poor attitude, not a smile all night. Food was OK but nothing special. The craft IPA though was very good.

Owing to trouble finding parking in this heavily pedestrianized part of old Montpellier, we barely squeaked in before the kitchen closed for the afternoon. By this time only one of the "mama's boys" was manning the small (c. 14-table) space and he was occupied at first with departing diners. It also mean the kitchen was either out of, or didn't have time to prepare, certain things we were interested in, such as the marrow bone appetizer. But the two mac and cheese dishes and the steak and fries we ended up with were beautifully prepared and delicious. The theme is comfort food, and there's nothing terribly fancy here, but the attention to ingredients' freshness is worthy of a starred place.

We went for mother’s day and my mom tried to order filet mignon and risotto. Got pork fillet and macaroni & cheese. My steak was tough, they had to remake my cousin’s burger because they undercooked it and put unwanted extras on it. Didn’t even remember to bring my stepfather his food. What a joke. If you come here, READ AND TRANSLATE EVERYTHING WORD FOR WORD. Or, better yet, just don’t come here.

Hi clara,

Sorry to read this.
We talked with the waiter and we don't have the same version as you. The main problem was apparently about the understanding of the menu... Your stepdad misread the menu and didn't get what he expected but what he actually ordered.
About the filet mignon and risotto: same. It is written on the menu "risotto de coquillettes et filet mignon" (coquillettes = pastas, filet mignon=pork tenderloin....)
And, yes, we serve what is written. Even you, you say translate word for word meaning we follow at the letter our menu...

After walking for almost an hour in search of a restaurant we came across Les Fils a Maman. I am going to be honest, we stayed because they had a menu in English. We are glad we did. The food was excellent as we as the service. My husband is the only one that spoke French. Our server very friendly, patient and helpful. We had the charcuterie board, Babybell cheese croquettes, goat cheese nems, breaded pork tenderloin, chicken cordon blue and the mega cheeseburger. All delicious. For dessert we had the crumble bananas Nutella. You can’t go wrong with Nutella.
