Every time we go there, we find a new menu, creative and delicious. Service is efficient and very friendly. Good wine also by the glass.

Booking was made just the evening before, and we had the chance to get a table by the window which was a calm spot to discuss between friends and enjoy excellent food! Tartare of fish to start and b cabbage from Auvergne, where the chief comes from. The sauce was perfect! Last but not least Chocolate cream with mango ice... More

I chose this restaurant for a group of four work colleagues as it is in the Michelin Guide 'bib gourmand' - offering quality for a fair price. I had to wait for two days to eat here as closed Sunday and Monday, but I'm was worth the wait. We'd had good food so far, but this was a cut above.... More

The people were welcoming and friendly and made me feel very comfortable. The wine suggestions were spot on. The boeuf came with a "marrow tart" that was unbelievably flavorful and brought back childhood memories somehow. This restaurant is something special. I'd come back to Montpellier just for it. It was the happiest accident. I turned a corner and it was... More

What a lovely surprise. I've been told this is one if the best places to eat in Montpellier and we were not disappointed. Our baby boy Aiden was very cranky, but the staff did not complain and we're very helpful. Would happily come here again.

Chose this as it has a bib gourmande award. What a superb family run eatery. The mid day menu was small, but very imaginative, using fresh local ingredients. The food was superbly presented and the combination of flavours excellent, ie beetroot and white peach gazpacho with a goat's cheese mousse! Wow!! Service and wines were impeccable and prices at lunchtime,... More

We sat al fresco on small tables in rue Saint Firmin, a small street in old Montpellier. Every single dish was to die for. Gosh, what flavours !! The fish ! the desserts !! Even the tomato salad, with a selection of tomatoes grown by a "tomatologue", was exquisite. Everything, including the service, was absolutely perfect. My only hope is... More

Good modern bistro with very friendly staff. Great starter to which we chose a great local white wine. Mains were pretty good as well but a little bland. Decent selection of wines both from the the region and from the rest of France.

Thank Johan R
