Hi international visitors
Welcome to Montpellier
For sea food lovers, the best trip is to drive to the sea shore to eat sea food from the producer directly, near the "étang de Thau", or in the city of Sète.
But if you want to test this typical regional food in the inner city of Montpellier, this is the only restaurant, and it's really worth it.
Fresh food from selected producers, raw or delightfully cooked (tellines à la crème épicée = (not too) spicy cream and garlic (not too much garlic either) small cooked shells: home specialty, fantastic), Spanish cod salad...). They have a no sulfide local Chardonnay that is very good and looks almost good for health!
If you prefer having fish, the restaurant "La morue" (meaning "the cod") in the same street is in fact the kitchen of "chez toto". They share about half of the menu. The "bar bar" is the third restaurant of this family, located at the same place. They serve cooked meat (typically regional too).
The street is a typically middle ages street, restaurants' decoration is cute, and service very friendly as well.
Just note that French oysters are much more salty than US oysters that are usually placed in sweet water contrary to French oysters. Moreover, Mediterranean oysters are more salty than Atlantic oysters, the difference between Sea and Ocean!
I wish you to enjoy very much your trip in Montpellier and France.
