The concept here is to match the food to selected wines turning the whole idea on its head somewhat. Our previous adventure with such culinary experimentation was rather mixed so we were not expecting much. As it turned out it was actually not bad, with good sized-portions and innovative cooking as managed by the husband and wife team. The menu... More

This is a tiny restaurant with only 7 tables. The atmosphere is charming, and the food is even better. We did the 4 course set menu, and were amazed by the delicious flavors that the chef prepared (in his open kitchen - it was a pleasure to watch him work!). Make sure you book, as many people were turned away... More

Only one menu available, either 5 dishes (fish and meat as main), or 4 dishes (fish or meat). the portions were maybe a bit too big but the food was really great and definitely woth the money. The menue is not expesive for such a dinner. Family owned, super cordial and nice service.

If you want an upgrade from Montpellier's bistro food this is a really great option. It's a tiny restaurant with approximately 8 tables (reservations are a must) with a chef's menu of 4 or 5 courses. Dietary wishes are no problem. The food is extremely well prepared and the courses are well balanced. The service matches the food. It's a... More

The restaurant offers 2 set menus, 4 or 5 courses, all dishes carefully crafted by the chef using seasonal and fresh ingredients, sometimes classics revisited such as the Paris-Brest dessert. Only a few tables which ensures a personal and charming experience. Our 13 year old did not want full menu and was offered 2 courses which was ideal. We were... More

A limited menu with few choices, but each dish was excellent. Service was friendly, relaxed but also timely. The food contained some interesting combinations, was well presented with great flavour sin everything. We went for the 5 course set menu which was just right: neither too much nor too little. V pleasant family run business that deserves to do well

My wife and I went here for a date night during our month long stay in France. This was our best meal in Montpellier, and possibly in all of France. It is certainly the best value for our money. The chef was creative and the food was incredibly flavorful and of high quality. We chose to have the degustation menu... More

We visited this restaurant on the 29th April. It is warm and welcoming. A small restaurant run by a husband and wife team. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The menu was very carefully explained. It is a set menu but you can choose between fish or meat or both. The cost is moderate and we would certainly visit... More

This is a delightful, small artisan french restaurant where the husband and wife team serve outstanding food. It is a set menu for each night where the only choice is to have both fish and meat or only one as part of the 4 or 5 course menu. The prices are moderate for fine french food and the emphasis is...
