The reception is elegant in it's simplicity and generosity. The chef prepares original combinations for the delight of the pallet. You don't need more than what he offers as there are several "amuse bouches" that arrive. They are as entertaining as they are exquisite. We enjoy "tasting and identifying" - it helps in our own cuisine. There was no "false... More

The french cuisine we had here was the best of our trip to France. We have discovered this restaurant after reading the excellent reviews and we were not disappointed at all. Every course from start to finish was excellent and very nicely presented. The service is very kind and efficient.

We booked well in advance as we'd read the reviews and knew the score. Very pleasant staff though quite serious. And it is a tiny place but we didn't feel squashed in. This is fine dining we're talking about here and it was a beautiful meal for a reasonable price.

Found it by chance down a side street. Simple menu but gosh the food was wonderful. Yes service felt a little rushed but it is August after all! Would love to go back

A great little restaurant. Limited menu but lovely combinations of ingredients, beautifully presented with a deft touch. Every course was well balanced and contained perfectly cooked fresh ingredients of a high quality. Good value for money too. One of the best restaurants we've eaten at in Montpellier, and we've tried many. It's small with very few tables so be sure... More

This place is tucked away down an alley in the old town. We sat outside. The service was charming and the menu amazing. I tried sweet breads for the first time - delicious! lovely little amuse bouches and excellent wine. I would come here again and again.
