Ideal for a quick dinner before a movie. Simple, tasty "brasserie" food. Friendly staff. Large choice of giant salads.

We had visited this Cafe previously for drinks, therefore decided to try the food. When I ordered a steak I was asked if I wanted it medium or well done, presumably because I was British. The waitress was put out when I asked for it "Bleu" and her service deteriorated from then on. Plates were just dumped at the table... More

We had a nice reasonably priced meal at this place. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was very nice,my pizza was good and my wife said her steak was also good. Nice location and friendly worth a visit for a good meal.

Le Cafe des Arts is an excellent place for a large group of people. It has an open air bar and a restaurant. We came back 3 times to this place! The service is good and food is amazing, especially all "XXL" salads! We tried "des Arts", "Italian" and "Exotic" salads and all were just perfect. My favorite one is... More

My husband and I had quick lunches twice here. Both times we had the salade parisienne and it was excellent. Service was very helpful.

Terrible food, goat cheese in salad tasted like plastic, beef in burger was awful, an authentic tourist trap, avoid it. Service is terribly slow

Accidental find on a quite Friday afternoon. Attentive staff had us seated, orders taken and served quite quickly. Only had a pizza to share so I won't comment on the food, but the dessert my son had looked fab. Good value at €23 for 2 soft drinks, 1 pizza, 1 desert and 1 cafe. Lovely setting on the edge of...

Nice outdoor cafe in a big square in central Montpellier. Fast service, with cocktails at 5.50€ from 6 to 10pm. (7.50€ afterwards) Huge list of cocktails to choose from and all that we tasted were really good. Beers, wine, champagne etc all available, and there is food too, though I've never eaten there. Great place for a pre-dinner drink.

Brilliant place for drinks & snacks, the waiters/waitresses are super efficient & so friendly. Each evening they hold happy hour, which ends up very happy hour or 2!!!, a must if your visiting Montpellier, the cocktails are fab, the lager is great, the shots are lethal, but we'll worth a shot or 3!!!!

My son, our dog and I took the modern tram down to the old part of the city, alighting at the Comedie tram stop. We wandered about a bit until we discovered a small, busy square with the Café des Arts on one prominent corner. There was a young lady trying to discretely entice customers to the restaurant and both... More
