This restaurant was recommended by acquaintances, so we decided to go with friends. The personnel (aside one waiter) is rude. The meal was very poor quality - the fish had sand in it ! and when we told the waiter, he told the chef who responded, "It's normal, they live in the sand." I have cooked this shellfish myself many... More

We love coming here for diner or just a glass if wine, never need to book, there is always a table for us somehow... Always a good jazz live band, piano or else. The tapas are just what they should be, simple and good, calamary alla plancha, chorizo, bellota ham, couteaux and great french fries. Service always engaging and smily.... More

Start your visit with a trip to the bar for a small wine tasting to choose your wine for dinner. It's a great place for large groups. They have live entertainment. Make sure to reserve. Only downfall, it's quite... More

If you like wine and a cosy atmosphere, then you may like this restaurant. Personally I really like the decor: a mix of wine store, traditional french bar, grocery, jazz club ...and restaurant. And because they didn't open it down town, there is space to do all that. The food is good: I had a traditional foie gras as entrée... More

Went to Trinque (Sud) last Saturday for the first time. OK so if you haven't been before, the set up is a little confusing.. get shown to your table, then get up from your table and go to the wine bar for the tasting of the whites, then sit back down having chosen your favourite, then order your food; but...

When in Montpellier, there are two locations, the one listed is north of the city but there is one sud of the city, directly off the Tram #1 close to the Marriott Courtyard named Trinque Fougasse O'Sud. Medium size location with a wine bar, wine store and restaurant. If you want to do some tasting the staff always has a... More

we had lunch (au Sud) in the middle of summer. Great food, friendly staff, good balance quality/priceN though salads are a little bit expensive. rich choice of wine, it would deserve a visit at dinner time. simple menu, fresh ingredients, tasty food, well presented in a simple and stylish way

Whenever we have guests, we go to this place. Never disappointed. Great: the wine bar where one can taste the right wine for a given dish.
