“Un très agréable surprise.”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

This is a really nice resaurant. The decor is natural wood with touches of purple and green - very fresh and calm. This is the theme of the food too - fresh and serene. The ingredients are freshly cooked with imagination and style.
I had the 27Eur menu of entrée, plat, and enjoyed in addition an amuse-bouche and caviar d'aubergine/toast nibbles. Very good value. The food was excellent. I had a steak with steamed raviols which was original and tasty in a delicious gravy. The dishes are imaginative and are served with style.
The staff was efficient and friendly. Our first bottle turned out to be bouché but it was whisked away without fuss. We felt we could chat in private - the tables were not too close together, and the staff was unobtrusive.
A very enjoyable dinner.

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

I was taken here by friends with no expectations, to leave having thoroughly enjoyed my lunch. Décor is fairly modern, including some of the tableware which catches the eye more than being practical. Waiting staff are very professional and explain dishes and wines. Food beautifully presented and cooked. A bit far from the centre of Montpellier if you don't have your own transport.
