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.

One of very few dedicated fish restaurants in Montpellier. At first sight La Morue does not seem very appealing. For us in February it was like walking in to a deserted gloomy out of season beach hut. However, the selection of local wines was very good, and so was the fish. The fish part of the fisn-n-chips was very good,... More

Although our first choices had already been taken off the menu (this was a Monday) we found delicious alternatives, Rouille de Seche, A fresh wild Barre, and tiny Scallops/ St Jacques, Gambas, Beignets de Calamari, and a perfect Tarte Tatin. We walked past and reserved a few hours before - and all the tables were reserved so its a good... More

This is in a great location in the heart of the historic district. We walked past, liked the look of the food and decided to try it. It was a fresh as could be and the food and service were impeccable. We started with oysters, white bait and I had fish soup and a heritage tomato with mozzarella. All excellent,... More

Very good location with airy tables on the street & friendly service. Fish was fresh & well cooked, some meat courses (confit delicious) & some Spanish influences. Very reasonable at 70 euros for 3 courses plus 2 pichets of wine. But delightful staff were run off their feet - fine if you are happy to chill, not otherwise.

The title says it all. 3 course menus at a reasonable price emphasising sea food. Great clams, good ceviche great fish soup. Decent fresh fish of the day and a sort of fish Mattelote with a single shrimp. Tiramasu was tres bien. Reasonable wine prices good service from nice people.

Most dishes were oily, tasteless and pricey. Any fish and chips in London would serve better dishes than here let apart a proper fish restaurant as this is supposed to be one of them ! Good luck to future visitors

Sitting outside is the best. The razor clams were awesome as was the crudo! The whole sea bream fish was perfectly seasoned. The calamari á la plancha was fantastic!
