Close to our apartment, so decided to give it a try. We had cod and potato pie and scallops with squid ink risotto. Both dishes were very good accompanied by a pichet of wine.

Fantastic seafood restaurant. The best meal we had over the week in Montpellier. The food was just superb, and service/wine all good. Highly recommended.

The service, the atmosphere, the food - everything was very good! Definately a place to go if you love quality fish and seafood dishes. And it's better to to make a reservation especially for a dinner, as it is a rather small resto.

No booking, but came across La Morue in a side street, there were a few tables vacant in a nice setting, the staff were polite so enough said. Fish soup starter was average, a bit watery with some spine bones, not the best I've had....More

We found this little restaurant during our walk through the city. Asked the lady in the store next to the restaurant about the food. She said it was great so we tried it and we liked it. Wonderful fish. Price quality is perfect.
