Off season and on a weekday - that's when we enjoy most going to Palavas for a view of the sea and a discovery for the palette. We were welcomed with elegance. The staff was helpful, courteous and smiling. And of course the food was a pleasant surprise. The fish soup was rich and tasty - we appreciated the quality... More

This place was recommended to us by our concierge at our hotel as being one of the best seafood places to eat at in Montpellier area. The food, although good quality, was nothing special and VERY overpriced. The view however is breathtaking. Worth a visit for lunch, service is good.

This one is right at the marina with a good view on the first floor. Stylish place and has a good feel about it. They do the fish well just as your typical cold seafood plate. What is a shame that they serve a 0.8-1 kg fish to a person, which let's face it should be for two. Better then... More

This one right at the marina has a great view from the first floor. The service is professional, They do speak several languages, ok maybe a bit limited English but all went fine. This place believes in huge portions. Serioully they give you a portion that is usually for two people. It is a shame in a way, as it... More

We sat on the terrace and enjoyed a wonderful meal. The staff was very attentive without being intrusive. An extremely knowledgeable Maître D'. For starters we had the gazpacho and the tomato salad. Both were extremely fresh and a delight to eat. We then had the fillet wrapped in fig leaf and the fillet Rossini. We asked for medium and... More

Really friendly, charming and knowledge staff, excellent seafood, beautifully cooked in a very classical style, but with modern flair and interesting flavors. If you want Bouillabaisse, you need to order it 48hrs in advance, but the fish soup is OUTSTANDING ! We had four seafood dishes, each one was a triumph. The scallops a la plancha are unbelievable, sweet and... More

This restaurant is located directly on the right bank port of Palavas. They proposed fantastic sea foods and huge soles ( 600g). Their fishes are grilled just as they need to be to be delicious. Staff is quite efficient and kind Wine list is quite regional with some good local wines whatever color. Free parking is available

We visited L'Artimon on the last evening of our holiday and weren't disappointed. Lovely views over the harbour and pleasant decor in the restaurant itself. Very impressive selection of whisky on the piano ! There were reasonably priced set menus at 39 euros and 49 euros respectively. There was an incredible wine list, too complex for me, however having had... More
