We headed to Le Ban des Gourmands as soon as we arrived as it is quite close to the train station. We ordered the 2 "Plats du Jour" - seafood risotto and beef skewers. Not only did both plates look colorful and well presented but...More

The new young owner is really committed to explore traditional french mediterranean cuisine, finding ways to make it succulent, surprising and perfectly balanced. The neutral style of the place will dramatically contrast with those and spices and colors in your plate...don't miss this place.

We have found this restaurant through tripadvisor. Food was very good, with fresh from the market ingredients. Medium prices. Not hard to find, reservations are necessary if you want to secure a place for lunch or dinner, especially in high tourist season.

If you like rich french cuisine lovingly prepared by the owner this is the place for you, Gourmand starters, Gourmand mains and Gourmand desserts available alongside plain (haha!) old a la carte. We went for the three Gourmands and what a amazing meal we experienced....More

The best restaurant we found during out week in Montpellier. Family-run, apparently and the service may only be 4-star, but everything else was superb. No fancy printed menu, just carry the blackboard round to each table. Superb brochettes, and the assiette de desserts was gorgeous....More
